Barbecue Cook-off spaces are still available

By DEREK LOPEZ

The BBQ Cook-off is back for its second consecutive year as part of the Celebrate Littlefield festivities.

“Our turnout last year was really awesome considering it was our first year back in the BBQ game, I guess you could say,” Steven Smith said. “It turned out really well and we were very happy with it. It wasn’t too overwhelming and it wasn’t too slim.

We had a good turn out and everyone that I talked to afterward and during, as far as cooks go, were extremely satisfied and happy with the facilities, the prize money, just everything. I didn’t hear one complaint.”

By JOE GONZALES

“I used to ride with a 45 up in the whip, but now I ride with my Bible well equipped.”

Silvas, a Littlefield native, will be the first performer to take the stage at the upcoming Celebrate Littlefield being held Friday and Saturday, July 20th and 21st.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Monte Holder, a magician from Lubbock, closed out the 4- week Lamb County Library Summer Reading Program with a magic show at the Our Place Community Center this past Wednesday. Holder (center) invited Jaylond Yarbrough (left) and Easton Yesel (right) up on stage to take part in the disappearing golf ball trick. Holder had just “magically” pulled the golf ball from the bag, and by the looks on both the boy’s faces, they were amazed! The children in the crowd also began clapping and cheering after Holder completed the magic trick. The library also served the children lunch and have away prizes. There was also a water slide at the event. The library is planning to start up a story hour for younger children, ages 3-4-5, later in July. Older children, ages 6-12 years of age, will also have activities for them to take part in also. For more information, you can contact the Lamb County Library at 806-385-5223.
