CANTON–It’s that time of year for the Autumn Stroll through downtown Canton.
Merchants are sprucing up their window displays, musicians are selecting their best tunes and backyard cooks are fine-tuning their best barbecue recipes for the two-day event, Friday-Saturday, Oct. 8-9.
Sidewalk sales, autumn decor, street dancing, singing contest, Lone Star Barbecue Society Cookoff, car show, games, rides and art will be featured, along with the crowning of Miss and Mr. Main Street, with the winner awarded a $500 college scholarship.
The fun starts Friday night on Buffalo Street, just north of the courthouse square, with a dance from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. with the music of The Silvertones, while contest entrants begin preparing their prize-winning barbecue for the Lone Star Barbecue Society event with $3,000 in prizes.
A singing contest starts things off Saturday at the Buffalo Street Stage at 9:30 a.m. and is sure to attract local talent.
Arts and craft booths will be set up.
Car buffs can enter and attend a car show at the Lewis Auto Swap Meet on the First Monday Grounds throughout the two-day event. A children’s area, run by the Women’s League of Canton, will also be on site with games and rides for the young ones, and arts and crafts vendors will line the street Saturday.
A barbecue dinner with all the trimmings will be served under a tent on Buffalo Street. Tickets are $10/$5 for adults/children under 12, when purchased by 4 p.m. Saturday.
Afterwards tickets go to $15 per person. Dinner is served at 5 p.m.
Live music will be performed from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday on the Buffalo Street stage, featuring Danny Hollis and his band. Kimberly Kelly and Leo Hull and the Texas Blues Machine will also hit the stage.
If cool temperatures draw you out-of-doors, maybe you’d like to see the sights in downtown Canton during its Autumn Stroll, sponsored by the many Canton businesses and the Economic Development Corporation.
For more information, call (903) 567-1849.

Microchip and vaccination clinic set for Oct. 9
Special to The Monitor
GUN BARREL CITY–From 2-4 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 9, Friends of the Animals will hold a low-cost vaccination clinic for all area residents.
It will be held at the Friends’ clinic in the southeast corner of State Highways 198 and 334 in Gun Barrel City, in the red brick office strip just behind and east of the Huddle House.
No appointment is necessary.
Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in carriers.
A rabies shot will cost $10, the parvo, distemper, etc shot for dogs or the equivalent for cats will cost $15. The feline leukemia vaccination will be available as well, at a cost of $10.
There is a rabies epidemic in Texas, and anyone who has had a dog with parvo or distemper knows the suffering that animal goes through, and that it is very contagious to other dogs.
This vaccination clinic will be open to everyone, anywhere.
This clinic will also offer microchipping for cats or dogs. A tiny chip is inserted into the scruff of the pet, which can be read by a scanner available at shelters everywhere.
Your lost pet comes home. Cost for this is $20, which includes the permanent national registration.
Also available for sale at any time is Frontline Plus, the monthly flea and tick prevention.
Frontline Plus costs $32 for a three-month supply for a cat and ranges from $34 to $37 for a three-month supply for dogs.
Flea season is here.
Don’t be fooled by products that are cheap. The reason they are cheap is that they do not work.
Don’t throw away your hard-earned money on products that don’t work.
Friends of the Animals Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has been open since July, 2002, and has neutered more than 20,000 animals in that time.
Surgery is done by appointment only.
Surgery prices range from $25 for a male cat to $65 for a giant breed female dog.
If you would like to volunteer at the clinic on Tuesdays or have questions about the vaccination clinic, please call (903) 887-PETS.
Tax-deductible donations for this non-profit charity may be sent to P.O. Box 5455, Gun Barrel City, TX 75147.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
