Look Who came to the Ville!


































































HUGO CHAVEZ - Ooops - I mean CITGO (well isn't that the same thing?) They filmed a commercial on our town square - yes I know - excitement - except they cut off the road to the store so customers had to park blocks away - the week before Easter - it was a BIT of hassle - it was interesting to see - it took them ALLLL DAY to set up they changed the front of stores to look like hardware stores and restaurants - they "set up" a park in our park - they added lots of plants - they did try to
"compensate" me for business lost ~ Anyway the point being - there's always something going on in this place - They did pick our town out of everywhere in the US - they had a crew go through Calif, Al, NC, SC, GA - we were the greenest and the cutest
(I of course already knew that!) So look for the chavez commercial with 3 guys getting out of their car, walking in front of a restaurant and people getting paint - THAT'S US! but it was really a Ballet/Bridal store and a photo studio! that hollywood is sooo tricky!
PS - Now don't ya ALL want to move to town? Look at all your missing and the weather is GREAT!
