FLOYD COUNTY – The Sixth Annual Country Christmas Ball scheduled for Dec. 5, 2020 at the Floyd County Friends Unity Center has been rescheduled because of the high rate of Covid-19 infections in Floyd County. The decision to postpone the event to a later date was made by the firefighters and the sponsors, Wendell and Dustee Sollis.
According to the firefighters, Floyd County has a higher than usual rate of cases and the hospital is at capacity with patients. Several firefighters are quarantined or have Covid-19 themselves. It’s in the best interest of all participants to postpone the December event.
Wendell and Dustee Sollis would like to encourage people to watch the local newspapers and the Facebook page of Wendell Sollis and the Sidekicks All Star Band, for information about the “Christmas in July” ball that will be held Saturday, July 17, 2021 at the Floyd County Unity Center in Muncy.
If you have purchased tickets for the Dec. 5 event, sponsors will refund your money or hold it for the next ball. Please call Dustee Sollis at 806-983-6228 for more information.
Donations and sponsorship money already made for the firefighters from area businesses and corporations will be presented to the Floydada and Lockney Volunteer Fire Departments later in December.
Raffle tickets are still available for the beautiful quilt that was made by Cindy’s Country Quilt Shoppe in Plainview. Tickets are $10.00 each or 12 for $100.00. The drawing for the quilt will be held at the next ball. Call Cindy’s Quilt Shoppe at 806-296-5888 or Dustee Sollis at 806-983-6228 to purchase tickets.
