Town Talk

Let It Ride - Double thanks to the carnival that was in town last week. Besides providing great entertainment and fun-filled rides for the kids, they also were a magnet for rain clouds! Like moths to a flame and tornados to trailer parks, thunderstorms seem to seek out carnivals in Friona. Most of the area received over an inch of rain which was really needed!

Flag Day - The flag of the United States is a symbol of freedom before which we pledge our allegiance. The flag's 13 red and white stripes represent the 13 original colonies and its 50 white stars on a blue background represent the 50 states. Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th each year.
