Former NASA Astronaut Sid Gutierrez will be visiting Cross Plains on Monday, Nov. 26. The Cross Plains Public Library will be hosting a Texas Bar-B-Q, catered by Bubba's Smokehouse, in his honor that evening at 6:30 p.m. in the First Baptist Church Family Life Center. Gutierrez will be the keynote speaker and share his experiences aboard shuttle missions STS-40 and STS-59. Cost for the event is $15; reservations may be made by calling the library at (254) 725-7722. Remember that the library will be closed for the Thanksgiving holidays, so the deadline for reservations is Wednesday, Nov. 21st.
In honor of his visit, the City of Cross Plains will proclaim this day as “Sid Gutierrez Day” and award him a key to the city. Students from Cross Plains, Coleman, Baird and other area schools will attend elementary and high school level presentations by Gutierrez that afternoon.
