With the early onset of cold weather, some may be hoping for a White Christmas, but whatever the weather, Calhoun County residents will be out and about celebrating the holiday season. In this issue, we have included information about many special activities to enhance your holiday celebration.

In Port O’Connor, many residents have already begun by taking part in the annual Thanksgiving Service on November 16th. As a result of theirs and many others’ generosity, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets will be distributed to those in need. And, as a result of the dedication of many boaters from the Houston area, hundreds of children in our area will receive toys this Christmas. (Toy Run is Dec. 6th. and you are welcome to come to Clark’s Inn about 3:00 p.m. and help unload all the toys.) Adding to that, are many individuals who are purchasing clothing for children in need in Port O’Connor (Christmas Angels).

Port O’Connor Community Service Club will once again give to our seniors a delicious holiday meal (Dec. 5) with entertainment by the children of Port O’Connor School.

And don’t forget the Boat Parade (Dec. 6) – a fun outing for the whole family. In these pages, you will find a map of the parade route and an entry form for those who want to be part of the parade.
Another parade (this one on land), the family will enjoy is the Parade of Lights in Port Lavaca on December 4th.

There are many more activities coming up. Those we know about are listed in this issue. As others are scheduled, we will list them on The Dolphin Talk’s Facebook page. We hope you will enjoy participating in these special events this holiday season.

The 2014 Lighted Boat Parade, sponsored by the Port O’Connor Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014. The parade is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. in the ICW from Larry’s Harbor to just past Clark’s Inn and is open to boats of all sizes that meet the minimum U.S. Coast Guard Safety Requirements. There is no entry fee. So, give us a call, decorate your boat and join us.

The Captains’ Safety Meeting will be held at the Inn at Clark’s Inn at 5:30 p.m. on December 6th along with late registration and assignment of parade positions. The U.S. Coast Guard will have a member at the safety meeting in case of any questions or concerns.

Locals and tourists alike look forward to this annual event, and it is hoped that many boat owners will participate. Plaques will be awarded in several categories – (Best Overall • Most Spirited • Most Unique • Best Commercial • Best Large Pleasure • Best Medium Pleasure • Best Small Pleasure) .

This year, as in the past several years, we are happy to announce that the U.S. Coast Guard along with most of the boats and owners who are participants in the Toy Run are planning on being a part of this great tradition. It looks like this year is no exception – This is going to be a fantastic lighted boat parade.

If you would like to participate, or for more information, see page 16 of this issue or visit the Chamber’s website, and download the registration form or contact the Boat Parade Chairman, Bill Tigrett at 361-983-2671.

So, get out your calendar and mark this event as a MUST SEE!!! Or, a MUST DO!!! if you join in the fun of being in the parade.
