INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE AND PICNIC. We greatly appreciate the Town Hall Committee for sponsoring this event and providing hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone. They want to thank everyone who worked to make this a really fun day for all. Thanks to Johnny Wolfe for helping me set up all the tables and providing ice for all the drinks. Dolores Nolen and her crew did a great job serving the hamburgers and hot dogs and all the trimmings. Delana Nolen, Sue Morris, Gary Morris, Pat Grupe, Rhonda Eckenroth, Phil Eckenroth, Marianne Stavinoha, Judy Champagne, and Gail Strickland were all a part of her crew. John and Jeanne King and their daughters Kaylyn and Brianna cooked the delicious hamburgers and hot dogs to perfection. The community provided great side-dishes and desserts. A special thanks to Pam and Gary Paschetag of Noahs Ark Bayou Rescue, who donated 11 watermelons, which were enjoyed by everyone.
We really thank everyone who participated in the parade. Kelly Balhorn and Dennis Gabel represented the Fire Department. Chief Randy Langston and Patrolman Heath Smith worked on their day off to insure we had a safe parade. Thanks to all the others who made it a really fun parade.
I thank Mark Roller for helping me put out the American flags. I also would like to thank the families of Mark Roller and Sonny Pieper for flying their flags to honor all past and present veterans who have sacrificed so much so that we may enjoy living in this great nation.
EMERGENCY GENERATOR has now been installed and tested and will run our Water Plant in case of an electrical outage. This was a Hurricane Ike Recovery Project, and we are very grateful to have benefited from this grant.
FOOD PANTRY ran by the Town Hall Committee assisted 17 families during the month of June. We continue to accept food at City Hall and the Post Office. Many citizens have donated vegetables from their gardens. Everything donated is greatly appreciated by the families who are experiencing rough times right now. Thank you all for your support. The Food Pantry is open each Friday from 10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.
POLICE CHIEF Randy Langston will be retiring July 29th to become our new Court Judge. Randy is very excited about this new challenge. He will be attending classes in Austin this month to further his education for this new job. The City Council voted to hire Rene Silva as our new Police Chief. We are very proud that Rene accepted this position. He has been in law enforcement for ten years, worked for the City previously, and was really admired by all. He will be a great asset to our community and we welcome him back.
Martha Orsak Nash, longtime resident of Liverpool and aunt of Sonny Pieper, “Aunt Martha” passed away July 13, 2011, at the age of 87. Our condolences are sent to all of her family.
