Quality of Life
“A good place to live and raise your kids” is a statement many folks make about Seminole! There are a lot of activities to keep the kids busy year-round, not only within the school system but in the city and county as well. That’s not to say adults are left out, since there are plenty of civic clubs and recreational facilities to please everyone. For the whole family, there are activities planned throughout the year that whet the appetite. In January, the annual Gaines County Junior Livestock Show spotlights the talents of 4-H and FFA youth. Youth basketball takes the stage in February, and during the summer youngsters can stay occupied with youth baseball, softball, and T-ball leagues, while the older youth can join the M.S. Doss Youth Center. The annual Seminole Drifters Riding Club Rodeo is held in June, along with the annual Gaines County Pro-Am Golf Tournament. In July, there is a fireworks display that culminates a full day of festivities, and throughout the summer months residents can participate in Summer Community Theater, either as a cast member or an audience member. In September, the Chamber hosts the annual Ag and Oil Appreciation Day to salute Gaines County for being the top cotton producer, top peanut producer and top oil producer. The year ends with December’s annual nighttime Christmas parade traveling through the main streets of Seminole, heralding Santa’s arrival on the square!
