Those of you who know me ~ already know that I can be a bit of a Ding Dong but for those of you who don’t know me personally or aren’t familiar with our annual Ding Dong Days festival, this is quite THE Honor.
Last September, I was extremely surprised to be named the 2018 Ding Dong Mama. There was a lot of sneaking going around as I usually rally the Ding Dong Mama’s & Daddy’s of the past to vote on the new ones & also emcee the dinner every year.
My dear friend, William Gamble was named Ding Dong Daddy & we have had a wonderful time representing & serving this wonderful town that we call home! We are both blessed to have local businesses in Dumas & would agree that we have the best customers & friends there are.
Ding Dong Days is a celebration of Dumas & there will be great events going on all week long. I started working on DDD when the Dumas Women’s Service League took it over 5 years ago. It is a huge endeavor but is so much fun to plan & take part in. I have made so many great memories & friends along the way! I am very proud of my friend, Aleah Hundley, for chairing this year & all of the committee that has worked hard to make this week a success!
We will kick off the week this evening with the annual Ding Dong Days BBQ Chicken Dinner at the Dumas Community Center from 5-7pm. I am including the schedule here as well! We hope you can join us for some food, fun & fellowship!!!
