We are ever thankful for the small rain showers, however brief because it gives us hope! Every person that saw the rain shower was smiling. It repeated Thursday at lunchtime. Just a brief rain shower that fell and gave us hope. Then the humidity kicked in and we were suffering again from the summer heat. It is July, so we can expect those higher temperatures during the day. Any cloud cover is greatly appreciated and is a relief. I am glad that I mostly work indoors!
Our work outside is usually associated with events like the Freedom Fest which was held on Monday night at Veterans Park. It was a great night with local musicians and food. The splash pad was a huge hit with the kids and every time I looked over at the cornhole games they were full. I can honestly say that Freedom Fest was a huge success! We counted over 500 in attendance, and probably missed some. We had kids of all ages dancing, visiting, and enjoying the music. The City of Giddings Parks and Recreation Department really did a fantastic job of getting everything ready for the event. Kenny Ray and his department were awesome to work with and they are planning more improvements for the future.
GREAT JOB GUYS!
Watch for more fun things at Veterans Park in the near future.
