I seem to always say how busy things are, but last week was a busy one. As we were recouping from the cold weather and enjoying the warmth that the new week brought, there were also places to go to. We had the Valley Star Awards, a boat expo, a car show, and an R/C open house.

I am happy to say that we got them all covered by someone. It doesn’t happen that way very often though.

This week does not seem too busy, but some events are the Independence Day parade in Alamo, the Alamo Museum rummage sale, and the Ocelot Festival. There is also something in Edinburg, at Quinta Mazatlan, and McAllen’s Arbor Day celebration.


I have enjoyed being able to get out with the people more. We have been trying to take advantage of any outdoor activity with you, our readers. We like getting out there and saying hi and seeing what is going on. It has been nice to see that things are opening up a bit more and we are able to enjoy more things with our friends.

This week is also our second week featuring golf courses in the Valley. This year we are inviting you to try some that you have not been to yet and let us know what you like about them. I am glad that these golf courses are open and allowing visitors to have some time on the green. The outdoors are nice for our sense of well being and we need that about now.

I am also enjoying the fact that event planners are finding ways for their events to still happen – whether virtual or modified in some other way. We still get to attend something and hopefully learn something new. These virtual events let us enjoy an activity wherever we are. It makes it very convenient.

If you are holding a special event, we want to know what it is. We would love to see if we can make it out to your event. You can even send us photos and information that we might be able to use for the paper or online. We like hearing from you.

If you have anything going on, or something you want us to know, please send an email to news@wintertexantimes.com
