Pilot Club hosts 10th Community Fair

By BOBBY HORN JR.
HIGHLANDS– The Pilot Club of Highlands will celebrate a milestone this year when they host their 10th Annual Community Fair.
The all-day celebration of arts, food and the community is Feb. 23 at the Highlands Elementary School campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Member Betty Michalsky said that this year’s theme is “Red, White and Pilot.”
In keeping with the patriotic theme, the Crosby High School Junior ROTC Color Guard will present the colors. Michalsky said that this is the first year that the JROTC has performed at the event.
Throughout the day there will be arts and crafts tables open with local artisans selling their wares. As in years past the Pilot Club will hold a raffle and an auction.
No fair would be complete without food and the Community Fair is no exception.
Michalsky said that they will be selling barbecue plates that will include sliced brisket, potato salad and red beans.
In addition to good food, arts and crafts and fellowship the Pilot Club is planning a full slate of live entertainment.
Among the groups confirmed to attend is the comedy troupe Cheerful Clown Alley from Houston. Those who have attended past Miss Highlands Pageants will recognize the singing duo of Susie Thompson Garcia and Lorie Lopez, who will perform at the event. The pair also sings at Crosby Church.
Funds raised at the fair will go toward the Pilot Club’s many community enrichment projects.
