That surely means we will get the rain we so desperately need. The cracks in the yards are becoming a little scary! And we have water restrictions in place and now we have a burn ban. So the heat is serious and we must all do our part to conserve water. What old wives tales do you know about that herald future rain? At the very least it gives up hope that the grass will become green again, and that our plants will survive.
It is just so hot that most decisions are made by how much time is required outside... God bless all the workers who are out in this heat every day.
The upcoming events and activities for the rest of the month and heading into August are exciting to say the least! Check out the Christmas in July Sip & Shop which is coming up on July 29th. We have been sold out for weeks and we are so excited to see all the vendors. There is no cost to attend, however we will be accepting school supply donations for the Backpack Giveaway!
Back to School is coming and we want to remind you that the First Assembly of God Church is working on their Back to School Giveaway on August 5th. They are accepting donations at this time of school supplies to fill the backpacks. You can make a donation at the church or drop it off at the Chamber office. We will make sure they get it.
There will be a Community Blood Drive on August 16th at Giddings Public Library in the Bloodmobile. It only takes a few minutes to give the Gift of Life! They open at Noon and close at 6PM.
FYI - Here's your chance to provide something for our Visitors Bags! Take advantage of this opportunity. We are making up 200 plus Visitors Bags for an upcoming 4-H conference and the incoming new teachers at GISD. We will make sure your brochure, business card, or other items will be placed in the bags. The deadline for getting this to us is Thursday, July 27th. Let us know if we need to pick up your items.
