Back the Blue barbecue fest / race at Deer Park

Our men and women who wear the badge at Deer Park and La Porte Police Services mean everything to us in the protection and service of the community.

Now, in a way, we can thank you with the very first Back the Blue Barbecue Festival and 5K Run, scheduled for Saturday, October 16 at the Jimmy Burke Activity Center, 500 West 13th St., Deer Park.

The event kicks off with the “Run for the Blue 5K” race which starts at 8:15 am, rain or shine, sponsored by Universal Plant Services. Check-in, check-in and parcel pick-up start at 7:00 a.m.

The cost to participate in the race is $ 30 for adults and $ 15 for children. To register or for more information, visit

All proceeds are used to support Deer Park and La Porte Police Services.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. there will be live music, loads of vendors, hourly door prizes, a silent auction, children’s activities and a petting zoo. In other words, it will be a fantastic fall event that I hope turns into an annual treat.

There will be demonstrations with K9 units as well as vehicles and equipment used by law enforcement.

Organizers are always on the lookout for silent auction items. Call Sheila Plovanich. She is the liaison for the Deer Park Police Department and can be reached at 281-930-2118 or [email protected]

The San Jacinto History Museum is appealing for volunteers to help illuminate the Texas Memorial, scheduled for November 13 from 6 p.m. to midnight.

Approximately 21,500 luminaries, or lighted candles in bags, will be placed on the sacred grounds of the San Jacinto Battlefield and on the steps of the San Jacinto Monument to honor all Texans killed in action in the country’s wars. By the way, a definition of a light fixture is a person who inspires or influences others. Those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our precious freedoms should be an inspiration to all.

The organizers are looking for groups to volunteer. They will prepare bags and candles on October 30, and then at sunset on November 13, two days after Veterans Day, the lights will be on.

Debbie Westbeld, Economic Development Administrator for the City of Deer Park, reports that Marco’s pizza is arriving at 3401 East Blvd., Suite 200. It’s right next to the Buzzy Bee convenience store at the intersection of East Boulevard and Pasadena Boulevard.

Shipley Donuts, 3117 Center St., which is easily spotted as it’s next to the city library, has reached five years of serving its donut-loving customers. Debbie brought up the history of Shipley, noting that the first was founded in 1936 and there are now 86 just in the Houston area.
