The invitations are out to a Holiday Lunch and Toy Drive on Monday, Dec. 10th at the Fire Station at 1107 E. 4th.
The amazingly big event has become a popular annual happening in Lampasas with invitations going out to businesses, offices, services and friends in Lampasas.
It started years ago with a limited Christmas cookies thing in the PD office that grew into a larger and larger event with what appears to be a huge part of the community invited in for a full dinner. It is not a catered event, but rather a lot of involved police and fire dept. workers and scattered other volunteers.
The admission, if you could call it that, is to bring new, unwrapped toys or monetary gifts to assist the Lampasas Firemen with their annual toy drive.
In an unrelated matter, Police Chief Sammy Bailey has announced an upcoming Citizen Police Academy to begin on January 10, 2019. Applicants for the Academy should pickup the applications at the Police Station on 4th St. The applications must be returned in person no later than 5pm on January 3rd.
