Four local businesses honored during Chamber of Commerce Roaring 20s Casino Night Saturday

Body
Sequins, fringe, and fedoras filled the River Valley Pioneer Museum during Saturday’s Canadian/Hemphill County Chamber of Commerce Roaring 20s Casino Night. The chamber’s annual banquet hosted approximately 80 people, who drank beer and wine while they enjoyed games of blackjack, craps, and roulette. Catered by Alexander’s, tables overflowed with heavy hors d’oeuvres, fine cheeses, bacon-wrapped chicken, jalapeno poppers, small sandwiches, fruit, and a decadent chocolate fountain. Special entertainment was provided by singer Casey McKanna, who delighted the crowd with Elvis covers and more. The evening closed with award presentations, made by chamber board members.

A new month has brought a new exhibit. In March and April, we are featuring Booker artist Kellye Orel. Stay tuned for the date of her reception. The museum staff is cleaning and prepping with the appropriate supplies to keep our visitors safe in this “Flu” season. We are also preparing our first newsletter for the year, and starting our membership drive. It is time to complete an annual report, so stay tuned for our activity reports for 2019.

The Record’s Snow Crew

Body
Some days, when the snow is falling in giant wet clumps outside our windows, and the Panhandle wind starts blowing it sideways, it just makes sense to take a break from work and run outside to play. That’s what staffers Cheri Smith (with daughter Lily) and Mary Smithee did on Tuesday afternoon, and it was great fun for about as long as it took to shoot this photo, before the frigid cold drove them back inside.

An awful lot of cheese

Body
My husband, Peter, likes buying in bulk. Peter hates paying shipping fees. He never wants to run out of anything, and he loves a bargain. This is why we buy coffee in enormous bags, crackers by the case, nuts and raisins 10 pounds at a time, rice in 20-pound bags, and beans in 50-pound bags. It is sometimes a little alarming when the boxes arrive.
