Congratulations to the lovely King and Queen on our front page, Queen Leslee Ramon and King Brandon Christopher Lopez. They will be representing Poteet in less than a month (April 13- 15) for the 65th Poteet Strawberry Festival, one of the largest and most popular festivals in Texas.
Taste of Texas Food Show Since we are talking about strawberries and the festival is approaching, this might be the time to enter your best recipe feturing strawberries in the food show. See the rules on page xB.
Recycle those electronics The Poteet Strawberry Festival Association is teaming up with River City Steel on Saturday, March 31 (9a.m. – 2 p.m.) for an electronic recycling day at the festival grounds. Electronics, household goods (electric/metal) and wire/ cords will be accepted. The eco-friendly event will also have chances to win free Strawberry Festival tickets! Proceeds will benefit the festival’s scholarship fund. See a complete list on our website.
Attention candidates Please take some time out of your busy campaigning schedule and be included in our 2012 Election Guide. Send us a 250 word write up and a photo of yourself. If you don’t have one, we’ll be glad to help you out and take one of you to be included. You can either email it to me, mail or fax (not the photo, though) to us by March 30. It will appear in the April 18 issue. It will include the city and school candidates as well as the primary candidates. It is a free service. Remember, all political minded letters to the editor will cease one month prior to the elections.
