How many of you have a favorite sweetheart that would enjoy a night out to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Well, the Falco Venue located in our community is offering an evening of fun for you and your date. Saturday, Feb. 13, they will be serving a steak dinner for two by the fireplace which also includes a rose for your special companion and chocolate covered strawberries. The actual meal will be served by candlelight. They will have only eight tables for the couples in order to be CDC compliant. The total cost of this evening is $55 per couple. The reservation line is 979- 450-2309. The deadline for the reservation is Wednesday, Feb. 10, and the address for the Venue is 15145 CR 320, Navasota.
The Falco Venue is available for rental purposes for small parties and gatherings. If you need a space for a sunrise Easter setting, I understand there is a beautiful view from the hill.
January 29 was my dad’s birthday and even though he is no longer with us, my sister and I like to continue to celebrate his birthday. Our usual day includes meeting at the cemetery and checking all the graves of our loved ones and then we go for lunch. We always enjoy one of dad’s favorites, a margarita. Luckily, this year his birthday fell on a Friday and we could do our usual celebration. Happy heavenly birthday!
The Whitehall Community VFD business meeting was held Monday, Feb. 1. There were 14 members, one guest and two prospective members. The meeting went quickly but before we could exit the station, the firefighters received a call. Again, seeing them jump into those suits and the sound of the sirens gave me goosebumps. After all, they are all volunteers and they are putting their lives on the line for our little community and surrounding areas. Just a thought.
