Spring is Finally Here!
Well the cold dreary days of winter are over and spring is finally here! Once again everything is green and fresh, beautiful flowers are blooming everywhere! Before we know it school will be out and trips to the river and the beach will be at the top of most everyone's list.
We have several things going on within the city that everyone needs to be aware of. First, we have just had a ribbon cutting at the park on Brooklane for an all-inclusive play area. I want to thank the Park Board and Public Works for making this happen along with all of the volunteers who gave their time and talents to complete this wonderful task. Next on the list is the conversion of Hillside Park into our first dog park.
Mark your calendars for JUNE 9th from 10 am until 5:00 pm for our first HUEYTOWN CITY FEST! This celebration will be held at Hueytown High School and include a line-up of entertainment throughout the day for the whole family to enjoy! There will be music, a play area for the children, food and much more!
We are having our first City Fest to also celebrate in conjunction with the bicentennial celebration for the great State of Alabama...Happy 200th Birthday, Alabama! A mini museum on the history of our city will be on display as well as the featured display for the "Alabama Gang". You will want to come and see all of the exhibits from this group who helped to put Hueytown, Alabama on the map. We have several famous athletes from our hometown that have always made us proud and I cannot wait to go along with everyone and share the excitement of this special event. I am so proud to be from Hueytown, I love everything about this city and the people here.
In closing, I want to congratulate our HMS Boys Baseball and Girls Softball teams for winning their respective championships; and for the boys it was even back-to-back! Hueytown is so proud of you for representing our city in such a great fashion.
Good things are happening in Hueytown!
