Annual fall tour trip to Fredericksburg set Dec. 6
Cheryl Walker

The annual fall tour is planned for Friday, Dec. 6 to Fredericksburg. The tour is sponsored by the Milam County Extension Education Association clubs and open to all interested persons. The charter bus will leave Cameron at 8:30 a.m. and arrive back in Cameron about 11:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity for you to get in the Christmas spirit and have a fun day with friends.

The day trip to Fredericksburg offers two special activities. First the St. Nikolausmarkt in the downtown square will showcase a variety of craft, food and art booths. This market is different each year depending on the exhibitors. We will end the day with the lighted Christmas Parade.

The parade is a great way to catch the Christmas spirit. The cost of the trip is $40 per person. Contact the Milam County Extension Office for registration forms and additional information at 100 E. 1st Street in Cameron, 254- 697-7045, http://milam.agrilife.org/ or ce-walker@tamu.edu.
