Town Talk II

Fall weather is slowly arriving. The mornings have been in the 40s and 50s but highs still in the 80s. We did wear a jacket a couple of mornings the past week. Don’t forget about the Noon Lions Club hamburger and fries tailgate party for the Chieftains vs. Dalhart game Friday night. We will be cooking kind of early and should start serving by at least 6:30 p.m. Burgers and world famous fries for $6.00. Drinks not included. The Boosters will be selling drinks and other stuff. Come out and cheer on the Chiefs and support the Lions.

Classes will be held on Mondays, October 7 through October 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Class size is limited. (more...)
