Stroll weekends kick off holiday season in Salado
Two great weeks of Stroll have occurred with many people visiting, shopping, and enjoying the lights, the spirit, and the hospitality of Salado.
The stores, decorated beautifully, were filled with merchandise, smiles, and treats. The neighborhoods sparkled with bright colored lights, yard art, and Christmas trees. The Salado Choir, the Church Cantatas, the Parade of Homes, the Robertson Plantation Gala, and the many events sponsored by service organizations added to a “December-to-remember” for Salado.
And, most encouraging, it was done during I-35 Construction. People across the State came and enjoyed because of Salado merchants and citizen’s reputation of superb hospitality and friendliness. That is the spirit of Salado and always will be. To each of you, merchant and neighbor, “thank you” for going “the-second-mile” and proving that life goes on with or without construction or weather.
A special thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for their multimedia coverage of the Stroll events. Highway billboards, television spots and newspaper articles were done creatively and with class. You are paving a new, exciting, and productive future for Salado.
