Cowboy Reflections ribbon cutting this Saturday
Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony during the grand opening of Cowboy Reflections Mercantile at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10. Join the TACC in welcoming this new business to the Thorndale community. The grand opening will begin on Friday, Nov. 9 and continue on through Saturday.
Stop by and see their beautiful showroom and see what they have to offer. Their unique selection of hand-made solid wood furniture is sold in their Thorndale business and they also sell to furniture dealers throughout Texas. Come and meet Steve and Tammy Dorsett at their store on US Highway 79 and help them celebrate the opening of their new business. I know you will enjoy browsing through their unusual “Hand built in Texas by Texans” furniture and home decorating accessories.
CHRISTMAS LOT LIGHTING— Another event to note on your calendar is the upcoming annual Thorndale Christmas Lot Lighting ceremony. It has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25. Join the TACC for Christmas carols and the lighting of the displays and the tree to kick off the holiday season in Thorndale.
Any group can join in the fun of sending holiday cheer to the community and to drivers on Highway 79. The Christmas Lot is located between Mercedes Beans and the Thorndale Post Office. Call Marilyn Johnson at 512-862-4419 or Angie Becker at 512-898-2257 for more information. Get your group together and develop a Christmas wish display. The more the merrier.
