This month seems to be going by fast. Before we know it, the new year is going to be here.

While we wait for that to come, it’s nice driving around and seeing all the lights around town.

Lighted Christmas parades have become a huge thing over the years. I hope you have been able to go out and enjoy one or two near you. Many have already taken place but are keeping their city park lights on throughout the month. So, you have plenty of time to see them.

During the holidays, there are so many of you that are helping your communities, or one close by. It’s a pleasure to hear what you are doing to make others Christmas’ a great one.

Like in today’s paper, Aladdin Villas is helping a community in Penitas. Last week it was Lakewood RV Resort in Harlingen – which their fundraiser dance is this Saturday (you might try calling 956-423-1170). Next week you will hear about a special Santa from Alamo Rec/Veh – Tripp Wright.

And I know there are so many more of you doing such wonderful things for the communities you live in. These are such heartwarming stories, and we love to hear and share them.

If you have one, please send us the information, a contact phone number, and photos. If we need more information, we will contact you. If it is something that hasn’t happened yet, we might try to get someone out there to cover it.

We do our best to share your news.

********

If you are doing something fun at your park – a sport, an activity that has really taken off, something that brings people together – let us know. Like I said, we love sharing what you are doing at your park and are welcome to receiving all that you want to share.

We want to hear from you!

Send your items to news@wintertexantimes.com. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
