Concert for Classrooms

Dear Editor, 

On behalf of the Cuero ISD Education Foundation board of directors, I would like to thank the community of Cuero for its support of the 2016 “Concert for Classrooms,” which was held on November 12, at the Cuero ISD Performing Arts Center. Proceeds from the event will benefit Cuero ISD in the form of grants to educators for resources, projects, and programs outside the scope of traditional school funding as well as help the Foundation grow its endowment and cover its operating expenses. We are thankful for the sponsors who went out on a limb with us, the community members who purchased tickets in support of our endeavor, and the host of volunteers who gave of their time and talent to both help and encourage us along the way. We are grateful for the community in which we live and look forward to hosting future events in the Cuero ISD Performing Arts Center to generate funds in support of Cuero ISD.

Dear Editor, 

Just a note to let you know some of the “happenings” in the Yorktown Fire Department during the Year of 2016. We completed planning, design, and construction of an additional fire station across the street from the original station. We accomplished this through a very generous donation from BHP Billiton in the amount of $50,000. We also utilized other generous donations from the community and surrounding rural areas. This new building will allow us to store all of our equipment indoors, therefore, having protection from the South Texas elements.

Dear Editor, 

On behalf of the VFW Post 8136 Auxiliary, we want to thank everyone involved to make our Bunco fundraiser a success. Businesses in Yorktown, Cuero and Victoria supported us through raffle and silent auction items as well as monetary donations. Also, thank you to those individuals who brought care package items and participated in our Bunco. We know we could not do this without you. We are grateful for your support and I know that all the veterans that receive packages, gift cards, etc., appreciate your kind gesture and support.

Christmas in the Park starts next week

Christmas in the Park 

Thanks to the untiring work of the Community Squad of the Stevenson Unit, the City of Cuero and the December Events Committee, an ad hoc committee of the Cuero Development Corporation, Christmas in the Park will open for the 17th year Monday, Nov. 21 and run through Monday, Jan. 2, 2017 from 6-10 p.m. Several new items have been added and the scene that should create quite a fuss is the Ski Slope Santa. This 66 ft. long by 25 ft. tall should be a show stopper. It is located at the end of the tour as you are exiting the Park.
