Southern Summer Night is an event that Southeast Texans have become accustomed to each year — enjoying delicious food, hearing fabulous music and just having a great time. The event, scheduled for Saturday, July 19, at the Carl Parker Multipurpose Center in Port Arthur, is formerly known as Cayman Night and is in its third year with its new name and theme. Proceeds benefit the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce and the Port Arthur International Seafarers’ Center.

Having written for a living for more years than I care to remember, I am still amazed at how the dear Lord puts things in my path, brings subjects to my mind, or has someone ask a question that gives me the idea for the next column. There are days when I sit in my lovely office staring at the computer screen wondering what words are going to magically appear for me to send off to one of the editors I call my friends. I am blessed.
