2016 at Land’s End
Fiesta Extravaganza, November 12, 2016
The Pilot Club of Quitman hosted a Fiesta Extravaganza event in Quitman, November 16. The event included a Mexican buffet dinner and the award of 7 Bucket Raffle Packages to winners who purchased raffle tickets. Former members of the 1980’s country band, “Mason Dixon” provided the musical entertainment.
Land’s End residents who contributed to the event included Debbie Keenan, Vanita Plumlee, Carol Manning, and Sharon Brooks. Terry “Caz” Casburn (center of photo) was a member of the entertainment group, that also included Frank Martin Gilligan and Terry Bayless, on the keyboard. The Links at Land’s End, along with John & Barbara Macatee were two of the eleven local sponsors who also contributed to the event, that was a huge success.
The Recycle Center, located on the parking lot of the Fire Station, will change, effective July 28, 2016.
The Newspaper, Aluminum Can, and Plastic Bottle bins are closed, and used for other purposes by the Fire Department. The Cardboard bin will remain open for daily disposal of flattened cardboard items.
The Upper Sabine Valley Solid Waste Management District–USVSWMD–(the company that currently picks up the recyclables) will no longer pick up newspapers, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans that have been separately placed in blue plastic recycling bags.
If you would like to recycle, you may drop off your separated items (in blue bags) at the landfill in Yantis, located at 1216 CR 1912, Tuesday-Saturday 9:00-5:00. In addition to the usual items, they will take hardback books with the covers removed, metal the size of a ceiling fan or larger, and motor or hydraulic oil. You have to unload your items yourself. You can also bring your items to USVSWMD, located in Quitman at 111 Westside Dr. every day of the week from 6am-7pm.
