July is winding down quickly and August is sneaking in on Thursday. The Lavaca Area Chamber of Commerce is trying to ease the thoughts of s-c-h-o-o-l starting in just a couple of short weeks!

The LACC held their annual Back-to-School-Bash on Saturday evening, July 27 in the Lavaca City Park. Chamber member Angela Gillooley was the chairperson of the Bash and all but single-handedly is responsible for the success of the evening. Free hotdogs and drinks were provided by our chamber member Farmer’s Bank. Additional drinks were provided by Jerry Denton and Coca-Cola.

The Lavaca School superintendent and chamber representative, Steve Rose, provided a small bus to hold the Fill-the-Bus project. Backpacks filled with supplies were given away by a drawing of names of school kids that were there.

The park was filled with two gigantic bounce-arounds, games of all kinds, face-painting and more. A local group sold Indian tacos, fried Oreos and funnel cakes. The local Girl Scouts sold cookies and some local baseball coaches were there pleading to sign-up players.

When darkness fell, a screen was set up and the new movie “Dumbo” was shown outdoors in the park as well.

It was a hot, yet full, afternoon in the summer sun but it was a really good way to celebrate and prepare for another school year beginning!
