Local Matters



The older I get the faster holidays arrive and fly by. It seems like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are each just days apart.

Atascosa County has so many events between now and Christmas that our Out and About column is turning into a full page of happenings.

Do you glance at Out and About weekly? This Pleasanton Express favorite starts on the Front Page and lists in chronological order the best of the best events in our county. The majority of the events are free or they are fundraisers. Most all are family-oriented happenings.

I encourage you to please take the Pleasanton Express and read through Out and About to plan your week, weekend and month ahead with your family.
