Pumpkins and whole lot more in Floydada

Country singer Don Williams was one of the more famous people who was born in Floydada, Texas, but the people who reside there today, get to enjoy a great town.  Floydada, the Pumpkin Capital of the US, is also home of the highly attended annual Punkin Days in October.  It also has a great Floyd County Historical Museum, and several  yummy restaurants.  We had a tremendous turnout at the 17th (1/3 of the way through our 52 Counties) Special Stamp Cancellation. Karl Rivers with TravelHost Magazine, Eric Turner with Main Street Plainview, Charles Starnes Professor at Wayland Baptist University, Dr. Holle Humphries from Lubbock,  Rick Vanderpool, Harry Bob Martin from Dickens County, Harry Record from Post, Dolores Mosser from Lubbock.  Postmaster Mike Lange and Lenda were gracious hosts for us, and thanks to Mayor Bob Gilliand, Museum Director Dorothy Turner, and Chamber members Regina, Justin, and Carolyn for making the Plains Trail Organization feel at home.   Rick and I spoke to about 100 6th, 7th, 8th Graders from Floydada Middle School about the Stamp Cancellation and the Plains Trail Program.  They had just completed their last TAKS test and were noticeably relieved.  Thanks to the teachers and principal for making this possible.   While in Floyd County, set your radio on KFLP 106.1...that's a plug for my Cousin Tony Rickett's wonderful channel.   Well, heading down the road to put out regional brochures at Palo Duro Canyon.  See you next week in Foard County.  Deborah Sue

Tales from the Plains Trail Region

My photo
Borger, Texas Plains Trail Region, United States
Striving to inspire others to travel the rugged-beauty of the Texas Plains Trail Region where the grass is greener, the people are friendlier, and the sky is blue. Wow! A great place to live is a great place to visit. C'mon visit the "Texas You Will Remember."
