January is here, a new year is here.....

as we begin the new year I would like to share with you some of the small businesses of Watson who are an essential part of our past and our future. These are only a few of the Watson area businesses that depend on your patronage through out the year. These small businesses are very much what makes Watson it's own unique place. Not only do they provide us with goods and services, but they can be seen supporting our schools, churches, youth and individuals in their times of need throughout the year.  So, I ask that in this time when life has gotten so busy and convenience has become a way of life for many, that you don't forget to take time out and visit and use our small businesses.  Help make 2015 a great year for them too.

 

 

 

I will try to update this website on the 15th and 30th of each month as needed.   If these dates fall on a holiday or weekend, the updates will occur a little bit earlier or later...I will try to let you know ahead of time.

If you have an announcement, community, church, school event, fundraiser, community news, birthday or anniversary  to share, or need a business added or updated for the business directory, please email it to comments@watsonla.com

Soccer/Baseball Parents, Soccer: Due to the registrations being on top of each other, I've decided to offer a deferment of payment for one of the activity fees until April 1 for any children that are wanting to play both soccer and baseball/softball. This is only if they are wanting to play BOTH. You will need to email me at the office that you want to take advantage of the deferment. I will extend soccer registration through Jan. 22 at 12:00pm. Baseball: Registration is currently being accepted through the website. Please take the time to go to the site and register. Thanks, Mike"
