Even heavy rainfall couldn’t douse the spirit and fun this past weekend as the 34th annual Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce’s Countryfest took place at The Cannery downtown. Thousands of East Texans munched on corny dogs, turkey legs and other tasty treats while checking out hundreds of merchants on the grounds.
In the aftermath of Lindale’s soggy, 42-28 road win over Hallsville’s Bobcats last Friday night playoff possibilities are in the air as far as the Eagles are concerned, especially if they can take down in-county rival Whitehouse this Friday at Eagle Stadium. Four District 9-5A wins should sew up a playoff berth for the Eagles and while LHS Head Coach Chris Cochran is still preaching the one-game-at-a-time mantra, he knows his club is on the verge of something very special.
During a recent luncheon meeting held at Hideaway Lake Clubhouse, officials with the Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed elected officials representing various areas of Smith County.
