Tree of Honor

Christmas in the Park 

Preparations for the December Events Committee’s (DEC), an ad-hoc committee of the Cuero Development Corporation, Christmas in the Park, began several months ago, and continues, with the changing out of the light bulbs, and putting together new scenes, by volunteers, the City, and the Community Squad from the Stevenson Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. This is a huge task, but hopefully will get better as the DEC established that all new scenes purchased will only include LED bulbs. Further, funds have been budgeted to continue the conversion over to LEDs.

My time has come to say good-bye

BY TIM O’MALLEY

They say that all good things must come to an end. What some don’t say is there are many good things to come. I write this column with mixed emotions of excitement and a heartfelt loss to all those who have crossed my path and made this life journey an adventure worth while.

'I write to correct a misunderstanding'

Dear Editor,

As the Priest at Grace Episcopal Church, I write to correct a misunderstanding about the sponsorship of the July 4th Celebration. It is no longer a ministry of our church alone. Rather, it is a gift to the community from a group of Cuero churches, organizations, and individuals. The purpose is to provide a free, fun filled, and celebratory event for the boys and girls of our community. There will be a bucket auction and cake walk which will raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club, but everything else including the food and drinks will be provided at no charge. Come and have fun!

A Cuban Adventure

By Jim Moser

Editor’s Note: Jim and Suzette Moser are residents of Brenham, Texas and own and manage community newspapers throughout Texas. Their involvement in Southern Newspaper Publishers Association (SNPA) led them to join a group sponsored trip to Havana, Cuba. The trip was organized by Suzanne Carlson of Carlson Travel.  

A few weeks ago my wife, Suzette, and I embarked on a once-in- a-lifetime trip to Cuba and it was immensely interesting on several fronts. Many Americans have viewed Cuba as a “forbidden land” for more than 50 years and I think that is the biggest lure for most of us. My wife and I had talked about wanting to visit Cuba for as long as I’ve known her so, when the chance arose, we jumped. Well, I guess we flew, actually.

Project Graduation recognizes sponsors

Dear Editor,

The board of directors wishes to acknowledge the following additional sponsors to Project Graduation:

Anders Auto Supply

Ful-O-Pep

Donut Palace

Cuero Pecan House

Woodhouse Day Spa

We are thankful for all of the sponsors, for Paul and Leslie Campos on cooking the welcome dinner, and for the cooperation of the weather. The event was held in the park and the students were able to participate in all the scheduled activities as planned by our committees. This would not have been a success without our community effort of volunteers and donations.

Sincerely,

2016 Project Graduation
