June 9, 2011 - The 132nd Annual Leonard Picnic (Picnic) is fast approaching, and activities relating to the Picnic are already taking place. To help defray the cost of the Fireworks Extravaganza finale on Saturday night, the Picnic committee has organized two fundraisers that will require raffle ticket purchases, two additional fundraisers where goods and services will be sold, and Picnic t-shirt sales are currently under way also.

The first raffle is for a recliner from Furniture Gallery in downtown Leonard. While store owners have already picked a recliner for the raffle, the winning ticket-holder will have the opportunity to exchange the value of the chair for store credit to use toward another chair or piece of furniture. The second raffle is a 50/50 raffle, which will also require a ticket purchase. Ticket holders will have their name placed in a bucket, and the winner will split the money raised from the fundraiser with the Chamber of Commerce. Tickets for both raffle fundraisers are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20, and tickets are available for purchase at Leonard Pharmacy, Summer House, American Bank of Texas-Leonard branch, and First National Bank of Trenton-Leonard branch. These raffles will be drawn during the Picnic and all proceeds will go towards the Fireworks Extravaganza at the finale of this year's Picnic.

On Saturday, July 2, the Chamber will have a Bake Sale and Car Wash fundraiser at B & B Foods from 8 a.m. to noon, or possibly longer depending on sales and traffic. Shoppers will have a chance to purchase a variety of cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, etc. for their July 4 get-togethers, and also get their car washed. Anybody wishing to donate baked goods to the sale should contact Angela Sadler at 903-486-2296 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Workers are also needed to man the booth for one-hour shifts. The car wash will be in the parking lot and will have a $5 minimum donation. All proceeds from these events will also go toward the Fireworks Extravaganza.

Finally, t-shirts are on sale now at several locations in Leonard - Leonard Pharmacy, Summer House, American Bank of Texas-Leonard branch, First National Bank of Trenton-Leonard branch, The Leonard Graphic and Furniture Gallery. Cost is $15 each and sizes available include youth medium and adult small, medium, large, XL and 2XL. Anybody interested in ordering smaller children's shirts may call The Leonard Graphic and have their name added to a list for a separate order. There must be 12 total needed in the smaller sizes - youth small, 2T, 3T and 4T (not 12 in each size, 12 total overall) - to process a second order. Those interested may call with their name and shirt sizes needed. Hats will also be available soon.
