"Rain cancels events" by: Jessica Shepard

   Due to inclement weather and a forecast featuring at least 80 percent chance of rain all weekend long, several events have been canceled and rescheduled for a later date.
   Serve Outdoors Matagorda’s annual fundraiser and banquet was scheduled for Friday and Saturday Sept. 14-15 but has been canceled and moved to next month.
   “Due to impending weather we will be rescheduling our fall Serve Outdoors Matagorda fundraising banquet to Oct. 26-27,” said Serve Outdoor Matagorda volunteer Clint Hewitt via Facebook Tuesday afternoon.
   “The safety of our community and our participants is our first concern. Mother Nature has her own plans and we must adapt. Mark your calendars for the new dates. Be safe my friends and keep an eye on the gulf. Look forward to seeing you there.”
   This year’s Relay for Life Matagorda County was set to kick off Saturday, Sept. 15 downtown, but has changed date with a venue to be determined at a later date.
   “We are going to postpone relay until Nov. 30. We are securing the date a location and will let you know as soon as possible. Sorry guys but to make our event successful I think this is best. Gives us more time to raise more money, more teams and more sponsorships.”
