It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Cuero.
 
Many thanks to the shops who held their wonderful Open Houses during the Thanksgiving weekend to get all of out and about as we “shop small.” Amazing one of a kind gifts and everything from A to Z. Check out these wonderful retailers right here in Cuero. And shop late ‘till 8 on Thursdays downtown and on Tuesdays at Ful-o-Pep Ranch Center.

Veterans honored at Cuero Headstart

Dear Editor,
 
Cuero Headstart Center honored our Veterans who served for our country by making large flags and saluting them on this day.
 
We learned about the different ways our men and women served to help our country be what it is today and the children had the opportunity to meet a True Veteran who come to our center on this day. The children learned that this Veteran who's name we proudly speak of is Mr. Matt Tarter who served in the Navy for six years and is still serving his country's future children by bringing water to our center. Mr. Tarter is employed at a water company and has been serving us for some time now.
 
 We want to give a Special Thanks to all the men and women who served and continue to serve for our country.
 
Thank you from the Cuero Headstart staff and children.

Proud of our Kitty Kats

Dear Editor,

I have been the head volleyball coach here at Yorktown for quite some time.  Throughout the years, I have tried to instill in the players, that I have had the privelege of coaching, that Yorktown volleyball is more than just about them as a player, or even the team, that we are a program and a family.

Have you ever heard the saying, “It takes a whole village to raise a child?” I know for certain it takes a community to raise a successful volleyball program!  I have always had immense support from parents and community members. With our season recently closing, I wanted to send a special thanks to some of our big Kitty Kat supporters.

'It is not about raising money'

Dear Editor,
 
It has taken six to eight years for the Republican Women of Yoakum Area to change the mind set of the citizens. We have tried to be very open and visible in the community: with program speakers, booths in chambers and picnics, floats in parades, bake sales, large speaking events, putting out campaign signs, establishing election headquarters, sponsoring debates and candidate forums, pages on Facebook, going to the Capitol to testify, speaking, participating at county Republican meetings, conducting voter registration, assisting with candidates campaign expenses, rally's, community prayer vigils, letters to the editors and state government officials, veteran's event services, educating our youth, and many other activities in the communities. We are standing, speaking out, and exposing the Democrat Party, saying, “we are the party of life and freedom, join us, and be proud and bold.” There are more of us, than there are of them.

VFW/Auxiliary gives thanks

Dear Editor,

The Yorktown VFW Post 8136 and Auxiliary wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the communities of Yorktown, Weesatche, and other surrounding communities for supporting the annual Buddy Poppy Day which was held Friday, Nov. 6.

A special thank you to the Yorktown Post Office, Dollar Store, Lowes Supermarket. Also to Aunt Di's, Texan, Leske's Oil/Conoco, Rudy's, Abuelita's and Apple Lumber for allowing us to place poppies and can at their place of business.

The day would not have been a success without the assistance of the volunteers who staffed the stations and walked through the Main Street of Yorktown and Weesatche.

Donations from the Poppy distribution event are used to aid Veteran organizations in various way.

Contact the VFW Post or Auxiliary if you have any questions or would like to join us. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.

Once again, thank you for supporting our veterans.
