Coming up is the Tiny Art Show. The entries will be on show from May 22-24 for public voting. Call in then to be a voter.

•Coldspring Chamber held a ribbon cutting for new member All Curbs last week. This is a very interesting business owned by Philip Allison which creates the most decorative concrete curbing for your garden, patios, playground and other areas which need some beautification.

Philip showed the Board how the machinery works to make the curbing look like cobbles or granite, slate or basketweave or one of the many other finishes which he can create. This is a new business to our area, based in Livingston and offering a free, no obligation, written estimate. Call (936) 247-2963 or go to www.All-Curbs.com.

Coldspring Chamber welcomes SAAFE House to the chamber which will have a ribbon cutting on June 1. SAAFE House is an organization dedicated to helping those in abusive situations. They have an office inside the Chamber building.

Shepherd Chamber is happy to welcome new member Nixon Adult Day Care in Shepherd. Nixon Day Care has also joined the Coldspring Chamber. Ribbon cuttings will be announced soon.

•Vendors: July 1 is Shepherd’s Independence Day Celebration. Held at the Community Center and Park, it is a great opportunity to sell your homemade items, artwork, jewelry, etc., to the community. Retail items are also welcome.

We have already booked many food vendors and will have a volleyball contest, children’s games, and a patriotic dress contest for adults, youth/children and pets. Our live music line up is fabulous with Bayou Sounds, a Zydeco band, and Mike L, a solo singer, to make the day perfect.

We will have the American Legion open the event and DJ Jaccen Lee to keep the music going. Call the Chamber at (210) 995-7420 to book your space inside the Center or outside. The day will begin at 1 p.m. although vendors can open early from 9 a.m. Fireworks will be at 9 p.m.
