The Colmesneil City issued an official proclamation congratulating the Bulldogs football players, coaches, parents and sponsors for an outstanding 2013 season, encouraging them all to continue their "positive athletic and scholastic contributions."
Mayor Don Baird and the Council were very proud of the school's achievements.
Other business at their 6 p.m. council meeting Monday night, Dec. 10, proceeded briskly in the tastefully decorated council chamber with a Christmas tree brightly lit.
Secretary Carrie Edwards had recorded that Mayor Baird and Mrs. Kerr's 6th grade classes put flags out in honor of the veterans at the Colmesneil and Mt. Zion Cemeteries. Baird mentioned how pleasantly surprised he was at the increase in the children's interest.
The environmental clearance came through for the Fire Station, and they will proceed with purchase of the property.
Colmesneil's First Baptist Church's "Barnabas" men's Sunday school class gave meals and groceries to five families at the Community Center.
The mayor and two council members were sworn in by Edwards, and they recommitted themselves to two more years of faithful service to the City and defense of the Constitution of the United States.
They adjourned in good spirits to a dinner for the members and employees in the Community Center, wishing all a merry Christmas and happy new year.
