LOCKNEY – Due to COVID-19 Lockney Chamber of Commerce will not be having Santa visit Main Street this year. “We just can’t take the chance of spreading the virus,” said Priscilla Varela, President of the Lockney Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber will be making Main Street as cheery as possible, but we do need the public’s help.”
Lockney Chamber of Commerce has arranged for someone to paint all the business windows downtown on Main Street with a Christmas scene. This will be taking place around Nov. 21. Lockney Chamber of Commerce is seeking donations or to have families or businesses to “adopt” a vacant building downtown.
The cost will be $35 per hour, with an hour at each business. This must be paid for before the deadline in order to ensure all Main Street is decorated. If you would like to donate to the Spread the Cheer on Main Street, please send your donations to Lockney Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 477, Lockney, Tx. 79241. The checks will also need to have the business name in the memo that you wish to adopt.
The Chamber of Commerce will also be decorating Garden Gate, which will be open to the public for visits and photo opportunities. “We encourage everyone to come take advantage of the Garden Gate once it has been decorated,” said Varela.
