Highlights of the 2017 Lions Club Lighted Christmas Parade held annually downtown Sulphur Springs, Texas.

The event is followed by a snowslide for children on Celebration Plaza as well as petting zoo including white tigers and pony rides.

It is a fun event for guests of all ages.

There is a special fund established for those who would like to donate to help beautify the Square in Cooper.

Kaywin Conley of Kay’s Korner is spearheading a movement to help beautify the Square in Cooper. She is working with the City of Cooper to reestablish the sprinkler system in order to be able to plant flowers and greenery to make the Square attractive to citizens and visitors. However this work is estimated to cost $2,000.

The annual Lions Club lighted parade was held under perfect Hopkins County skies, hosting one of the largest crowds last Friday night.

Parade goers enjoyed a variety of floats and entries. The fun continued with a tiger display, snow slide, fashion show, carolers and movies on Celebration Plaza.

The Annual Lions Club Christmas Parade of Lights was held last Friday night to a large crowd of spectators. It traveled from Buford Park down Connally to Celebration Plaza and back Church Street to Houston.

The 2014 Winners were recently announced. Overall winner went to “Thomas the Train” sponsored by the City of Sulphur Springs and Mayor’s Award went to the Grinch-themed Discount Wheel and Tire float.

October is “Sharing the Vision” month. Lions Club International has announced their Centennial Service Challenge.

With this, the local Lions Club of Cooper would like the public to know there are collection boxes for donations of eyeglasses at Miller’s Pharmacy, Cooper Home Health, Cooper Post Office, Lowery Medical Supply and many of the area churches. Plus the Club will be accepting gently used eyeglasses at the upcoming fundraising Pancake Breakfast annually held at the Cooper Volunteer Fire Station on Saturday morning of Chiggerfest Oct. 18 and at the Health Fair at the Civic Center that same day.
