City employee Richard Samarron spent time trimming trees in the city park that were damaged by the icy weather we received over the weekend. Many limbs were broken in the city park and around town. City employees hauled away the broken limbs this week.

The Friona Texas Federal Credit Union building construction was at a halt during the winter weather the past several days but is progressing. Credit union officials declined to give an estimated date of completion. After the move to the new building the current credit union building on 6th St. will be remodeled for the Friona Police Department.

Town Talk II

The only good thing about the weekend icy weather was it gave us some more moisture. I canceled my trip down to Denton and stayed in the house all day Friday and Saturday. Finally ventured out Sunday about noon. Will try the trip to Denton again during the Christmas holidays. Hope you all had a feast of a Thanksgiving even though the weather messed up many planned celebrations.

The City Park will be lit up again this year by organizations, businesses, churches and citizens of Friona who will decorate a tree for a chance to win the Traveling Trophy. Votes for the trees can be made by contributing Pop Tarts or 16 ounce jars of peanut butter. The ‘votes’ will be donated to the Friona Snack Pak 4 Kids program. Tree decorating needs to be done before December 7. Call the Chamber at (806) 250-3491 to save your tree. (more...)
