It takes a community

Dear Editor,

Many clubs and civic organizations have raffles, bakes sales, and other types of fund raising activities. The Cuero Young Farmers are one of these organizations. It started back in 1991 when a need was realized to help local youth with scholarships to attend schools of higher education. The annual raffle began and over the years over $100,000 has gone back into the community in the form of scholarship or help with the Cuero Livestock show.

We would like to thank Bill Braden for his many years of heading up the raffle and recently the help of Carl Blank. Also like to thank the members who get out to sell the tickets and of course the people in the community that purchase these tickets. We also are very blessed to have business donate to help with prizes. These donations are critical to getting the most money for the scholarships. We would like to thanks the following business and individuals.  

Full-O-Pep Ranch Center, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, Curtis Koenig, Dewitt County Producers Co-op Assn., Arlyn Seiler, Jody Zavesky, and member donations. Cuero is a great place to live and work. When everyone gives a little and works together it can make a big impact on tomorrow. Support the youth. Support the local businesses.

And most of all support the cooperation of the clubs and organizations that are working to bring it all together.
