The City of Daisetta was presented with a $1,000 cash donation on Nov. 13 from Entergy Texas to help offset costs of the upcoming “Community Christmas Gathering.”
The event is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the parking lot next to Daisetta Municipal Building, 412 Main St.
Daisetta Mayor Eric Thaxton and the Daisetta City Council are inviting the public to the first annual community tree lighting.
“I appreciate this generous donation from Entergy, which will help the City of Daisetta give something back to the community,” said Mayor Thaxton. “I want to extend an invitation to everyone to come out and join us for a special Christmas celebration. There will be refreshments, a stocking drawing for the children, music, and, of course, we’ll be receiving a visit from our very special guest, Santa Claus.”
The Mayor also wants to ensure that the public is aware that the City of Daisetta has begun a food drive and that the city is also collecting gifts for the elderly.
“Be sure to drop off any donations you may have at the Daisetta Municipal Building, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. I’m looking forward to this First Annual Community Gathering and I believe it’s going to be a really nice event for our citizens and their children,” the mayor said.
He continued, “I want to extend a word of special thanks to our sponsor, Entergy, for their very generous donation and also for being such a great community partner. We hope to continue to bring new events for the enjoyment of our community which is why we sincerely appreciate Entergy for pitching in and helping us get this first Christmas gathering established.”
