CHAMBER CHAT – April 2018 B. Halfin 04/05/18

Since Easter happen to fall on April Fools Day this year, I restrained myself from pulling any practical jokes on anyone and just enjoyed a beautiful Wallis Easter Sunday.

The 2018 WEE Hunt (Wallis Easter Egg Hunt) held on Palm Sunday, March 25th was a pretty windy affair, but that didn’t stop eager Easter Egg Hunters from taking the Brazos HS Cougar Football Field! The Wallis Cub Scouts Pack #1990 did a wonderful job starting things off by presenting the colors and Valerie Hahn performed an incredible rendition of the Nation Anthem. That’s a BIG voice coming from a small 12 year old Sealy girl and it was a pleasure to have her sing for us. THANK YOU Valerie and we hope to hear you singing in the future!!

For any fans of the show “FORGED in FIRE” there’s a treat for you on Saturday, April 7th at Phenix Knives in the historic 1891 Blacksmith Shop located at 305 E. Main St., Bellville, Texas. Bladesmiths from Seasons 1, 2, 3 & 4 will be there hosting demonstrations and meet fans. Hope the weather holds out, so while there enjoy the Bellville Market Days and also consider catching a tour of the Austin County Jail Museum; Tours available Saturday’s from 11am-3pm too.

Camp Hope Ministries sign up for THE GREAT ADVENTURE is open for K-6th Graders, Week 1: June 11-15 and Week 2: June 18-22. Registration forms available at or Call/Text: 979-330-5037. Please note Registration Form Deadline is APRIL 15th.

Mark your calendar and plan on some good eats on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 13th from the Wallis Columbus Club BBQ Chicken Fundraiser. Personal note, when the KC’s cook, I make sure to get my share and you’ll want to too!
