As of the writing of this piece, there are fifteen weeks until the 30th Annual Punkin Days! Plans for that October 14th weekend have been in the works for months, and now we are getting down and dirty in the details. We welcome any and all individuals and groups to pitch in and make this one of the best!

I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time this past week, and I got the privilege to meet Hulon Carthel and listen to him expound on some of the planning activities that took place in those early Punkin Days celebrations. Marketing fascinates me, so anytime I can plunder the thoughts and ideas of those that have been successful in such efforts, my day is made.

Which brings up another point. I know that the festival brings in mobs of "outsiders” that seemingly clog up the normal routines of our own residents. I’m right there with many of you that have chosen to leave town in lieu of the experience; however, I challenge this community to do it all a bit differently this year. Stay in town. Get involved. Offer your services whether setting out signs all over town, marking the streets for vendor booths, organizing the Park & Ride system…this festival will benefit from your contribution.

There is a buzz of energy in Floydada these days. I know many of you agree that this is a welcome breath of fresh air. As a community, we need to keep that dynamic alive by attending community events that create opportunities for cooperation and fellowship.

As mentioned above, this is the 30th Annual Punkin Days. The Board of Directors, along with other interested parties, have come up with some phenomenal activities for October 14, 2017. Join with us in showing those "outsiders” just how much fun a close-knit community can be.

June Chamber activities are keeping me busy!

The membership drive is still on-going, but is beginning to wind down. In years past, records show that Chamber memberships were upwards of 200. As of last Friday, we have received 29 completed memberships with dues. I have been hand-delivering renewal applications for a few weeks and have received quite a few of those—thank you! If I dropped off your membership application and it is still somewhere in that pile of papers on your desk, please find that form, fill in all the blanks, write your check for the annual dues, and send it all in so we can add you to our membership.

The City-wide Garage Sale is just around the corner-Saturday, June 24, to be exact. Adding your garage-sale address to our list is free this year. Simply text your address to 806-983-3434. We will be printing the address in the newspaper that week, so if you want to be included in that printing, we need word of your garage-sale by Sunday, June 18-Father’s Day. The complete list of addresses will be printed on fliers and available at several Chamber Members’ business locations for pick-up, as well. These fliers will also include the detailed instructions for the Scavenger Hunt. Chamberbucks prizes will be given to the first correct submission of the Scavenger riddle. Get out and enjoy the fun!!

Floydada’s Blood Drive is scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. United Blood Services will be setting up at the First Baptist Church as in past years. If you receive a postcard in the mail, please follow the instructions for making your appointment. The need for donated blood is critical in the summertime. Please gather together with friends and neighbors that afternoon. Let’s keep the Blood Services’ staff busy!
