As might be expected, your Karnes City Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for this coming Saturday’s Christmas in the Park at the Karnes City Park.

You will find an ad in this paper with details about this event that takes place Saturday, Dec. 3 from 1-4 p.m.

There is a form to fill out if you would like to have a place to show and sell your arts, crafts, or food goodies.

No fee is charged to secure a place for your products and you may come a little earlier to set everything up that you need.

Also, we had shared in last week’s paper that there will be a “throw the basketball” contest with prizes to the top winners.

This is open to both boys and girls in grades one through eighth.

And, of course, what would Saturday in the Park be without a visit from Saint Nick, with whom you may get your childrens’ pictures taken?

He is expected to be visiting the park at 2 p.m.

And getting into the Spirit of things will include music, singing and dancing.

A Line Dancing group from Kenedy First Baptist Church will be there to perform their spirited dance movements to Christmas music.

While we are all anticipating the coming of Christmas, other things of interest are going on in our community.

Soon, Looney’s Supermarket will be having a grand opening to introduce the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Jada, as well as all of the updates they have brought to the store.

The Chamber of Commerce will assist with the grand opening.

More about this event will be shared soon.

And, in the meantime, when was the last time you visited Hons Applicance Store?

If you haven’t been in the last month or so, you will be taken back in time and history of Karnes City when you do get a chance to go visit the store!

It is now not only filled with good, fairly priced appliances and mattresses, but an interesting array of antiques.

These are not just antiques from personally owned items or estates, but antiques associated with Karnes City from its early beginnings.

Did you ever go to Bailey’s Drug Store, like I did, right after classes at school and order one of the popular-for-the-moment fountain drinks?

And, if like me, you had a generous Dad who let you charge your cherry or lime cokes on his tab to pay for the drinks, then you might want to look at a stack of old charge slips and see if your name is on one of them!

So, enjoy being in the Karnes City area and visit your local businesses to explore and enjoy all the benefits of being in a warm and friendly community!

‘Til next time!
