Corsicana —

Organizers of 2014 Derrick Days met Tuesday at the Chamber of Commerce, where Fran Townes, chairman, announced the Oil Baron's Ball has nearly sold out of tickets in only its second year.

The ball, to be held at the new Corsicana Opry, has sold 156 tickets so far and possibly more and will be capped soon. Raffle tickets for the ball, $20 each or six for $100, allow you to choose which of six fabulous prizes you'd prefer.

Raffle tickets are also now available for the bay gelding horse, which will be present at the Derrick Days rodeo and at Derrick Days.

Enterprise Pre-Cast Concrete has agreed to sponsor the Friday night street dance, featuring Ira Bradford and Bustin' Loose.

A current schedule of events for Derrick Days is now available online at
