Have you ever wanted to judge stew in the Hopkins County Stew Contest? Here is your chance! We are looking for individuals to serve as judges in this year’s Stew Contest. If you are interested, please call the Chamber at (903) 885-6515.
The time has come to pre-order your stew for this year’s Stew Drive-thru! You can make your pre-order beginning Oct. 1 by calling or coming by the Chamber, and you can select your favorite cook’s stew until Oct. 21. If you do not pre-order, but drive through on Stew day, you will not be able to choose a specific cook’s stew. You will, though, get to choose chicken or beef. All quarts are $10 and will include cheese and crackers. No tickets for park admission will be sold, but the drive-through will be available while supplies last. Stew will be held on Saturday, Oct. 24 … “2020 Stew, We’re Driving Through!” Thank goodness something is finally able to happen in 2020!
The Chamber of Commerce is currently selling our 2020 Hopkins County Christmas ornament. This ornament is the third of our series and features our beautiful Dairy Museum. It is dated with the year, made with 24 karat gold, is shatterproof and VERY limited in number. They are quite beautiful and the perfect addition to a rare collection. They are $40 each and literally flying out the door. If you would like to purchase one, please call the Chamber at (903) 885-6515, or come by soon.
