FLOYDADA – The Floydada Chamber decorated the ‘Centennial Plaza on the Y’ with different sizes of pumpkins, gourds, and hay from Pumpkin Pyle’s Oct. 1 to get ready for Punkin’ Days. The festival will be held Saturday, Oct. 10.
Last week long-time Floydada residents Kay Hicks and Clinton Fawver were seen working hard to clean the Plaza so that visitors coming to Floydada for Punkin’ Days would enjoy it as they drive into Floydada at the junction of Highways 70 and 62, or also known as the “Y” entrance of Floydada. Thank you Kay and Clinton for all your hard work.
The Centennial Plaza was dedicated in 2009 to commemorate Floydada’s centennial. The brick’s served as a main fundraising tool during the completion process of the Plaza. Floydada citizens and businesses bought bricks and granite pavers etched with their family names or messages that completed the brick floor. Completion of the Plaza was announced September 2, 2010.
The Pride Organization, a group of concerned citizens who wanted the town to be beautified and looked like officials cared, use to take care of the Plaza. It was a non-profit funded by donations of citizens, former citizens and people who attended the Floydada school system and those who just wanted to help
In order to keep the Plaza looking beautiful, Floydada citizens need to help keep the Plaza clean. If you know of an organization, group of people or individuals that would like to volunteer, please contact the EDC Director Justin Brown at 806-983-4405, City Manager Darrell Gooch or any EDC board member.
Personalized bricks are still available for purchase. Persons interested in buying a brick or for more information need to contact the EDC Manager Justin Brown or visit the EDC office at 105 S. 5th St.
