Community gearing for day at Capitol

January 11, 2011

Designed to increase awareness of the Crossroads area in the state legislature every two years, local residents and officials will once again converge on the state capitol for Howard County Day at the Capitol Wednesday, Feb. 9.


According to Terry Wegman, executive director of the Big Spring Economic Development Corporation, there are a full slate of activities planned for the day-long event.


“For those who are planning to take advantage of the bus we have chartered, we'll be leaving from the east parking lot at Howard College's Dorothy Garrett Coliseum at 4:30 a.m.,” said Wegman. “It's $40 to take the bus, and that includes transportation to and from the Capitol and a box lunch while we're there.


“Food and drinks on the bus will be the responsibility of those traveling, and on the way back we'll be stopping off at Cooper's Barbecue, which will be Dutch treat. We expect to arrive back at Howard College at approximately 11 p.m.”


Wegman said the time at the Capitol will be well spent, featuring a number of events to help highlight Big Spring and Howard County.


“They will read the resolution on the floor of the House and Senate proclaiming Feb. 9 Howard County Day in Austin,” said Wegman. “We'll have a box lunch on the east grounds of the Capitol, as well as have a Coke and Blue Bell Ice Cream reception, followed by a group photo on the Capitol steps.”
