KILGORE CRUISE NIGHT will return once again to the streets of downtown Kilgore tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. The car, truck and bike show offers just a little something for everyone, whether you love classic cars or just getting together with good friends.
According to the event’s Facebook page:
“On the last Saturday of every month, we close a few streets in Historic Downtown Kilgore for a Classic Carhop! Over 100 cars generally come. We’re always adding activities to the event to keep it fresh. Everybody’s welcome. No registration required. Cars, trucks, bikes, classic and hot rod! It’s always a festive time with most of the stores and restaurants open. We look forward to having you here.”
Joe Stephens, longtime store director at Brookshire’s of Kilgore and friend of the entire community, is sadly bidding farewell to the City of Stars. He has been promoted to a regional position and Friday, July 24, marks his last day here. Stephens has been a familiar face in the community for years, whether presenting Student of the Month awards to KHS seniors at Kilgore Lions Club, donating heaping pallets of food to local pantries and food drives or offering his time as a volunteer at local events, he will surely be missed. KNH wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.
Amanda Nobles, longtime director of Kilgore Economic Development Corporation and Citizen of the Year, celebrated a birthday yesterday. Nobles recently stepped down from her position at the head of KEDC after marking three decades in service to the city of Kilgore. KNH wishes her a very happy birthday, with plenty of cake and time with friends and loved ones.
