The Chambers County Historical Commission won the honor of having the Best Float in the First Annual Christmas Parade held in Anahuac last week. The float was decorated in a theme depicting Fort Anahuac in 1832, complete with a replica of a large field cannon. The float was occupied by Commission Members Karl Totzer, Kenneth Standley, Kay Willcox, P.D. Hankamer, Bob Wheat and Pudge Willcox and they are pictured with the trophy.

The float was one of 29 entered in the parade which was sponsored by the Anahuac Area Chamber of Commerce. Tammy Hale of Anahuac organized the parade and plans have been made to make it an annual event. The parade was followed by a lighting ceremony at the Chambers County Courthouse and a tree lighting ceremony at the Thomas Jefferson Chambers Home where Santa Claus arrived by fire truck. A large crowd of spectators lined the parade route which started at the high school and ended at the Courthouse.
