Wow. When I heard the tickets to the Pleasanton Lion’s Club Wild Game Dinner that will be held February 25 was very close to being sold out I was impressed and then scrambled to get our tickets!
Well, as of Tuesday, it was officially sold out. What a great problem, right?
The Lions always have great food, music and items for their auctions so it is no wonder the event will be a success. I know my father (God rest his soul), a charter member of the Pleasanton Lions Club, always looked forward to contributing to the event. He might be a bit disappointed that his deer and rattlesnake are no longer needed now that they have it catered by Black Tie Affair. But I will say this, my palate is forever grateful!
I spoke with Mystle Williams at the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce yesterday. She said the Awards Banquet will be held on Thursday, March 1 at Coughran Hall. If your club hasn’t turned in their nominees, you have until Monday, Feb. 6.
She also confirmed that Cowboy Homecoming will be held the fourth weekend in October this year. They may begin on Thursday, so the dates right now will be October 25-27.
I guess they’ll be losing the “Hottest Festival in Texas” moniker. Of course it IS Texas and we never really know what the weather will be.
I know they are looking for cooler weather and more folks to help volunteer (maybe the cooler weather will help in that area?)
