Thornton Chamber of Commerce hosted its very first ever Annual Tribute to Thornton Cornhole and Texas 42 tournaments on Sat. Aug. 21 at the Thornton Slab. Many people gathered to enter the tournament and try their hand at 42 and cornhole for cash payouts and trophies. Fish plates were also sold.
Thursday was a good day with sixteen seniors gathered for lunch and enjoyment. We just never know what kind of surprises are going to come our way. Debra and Randy Franklin came bearing several dozen yard eggs to give to those who wanted them. They also shared the information about the Cornhole Toss and the 42 Tournament and the fish fry that is to be held Saturday, August 21st at the Thornton Slab beginning at 12 noon. The fish will be served around 2 p.m. Sign up for the contests at 11 a.m., so bring your partner and join in the fun. Trophies will be given to the winners. Should be fun.
The Chicken and Dumplings we had Thursday, was well received with the added veggies to our salad and the three flavors of ice cream donated from the ice cream supper at Central Baptist Church.
