All proceeds benefit the Comal County Senior Citizens Foundation expansion fund. Starting at noon, there will be barbecue (brisket, chicken and sausage), beer, hot dogs, funnel cake, frozen yogurt, homemade baked goods and lots more. The New Braunfels Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) will have a booth with something special in the way of food; we just don’t know what it is yet. It may be turkey legs or fajitas, or tacos, or something else just as good. We’ll all find out on that day. Anyway, we appreciate their support and their enthusiasm for our cause. T. K. Schneider will conduct the live auction from I to 2:30 p.m., and that should prove to be very exciting. Some of the items to be auctioned are a mink stole, crystal chandelier, eight-place setting of Royal Doulton China, Victorian gentleman’s chest, electric coping saw, glass-top Duncan Phyfe table, Horsman (1964) black doll, Waterford Crystal biscuit barrel, antique silver coffee and tea set, large Masonic Bible, I I/2-ton Bryan heat pump, opal jewelry, two George Strait embroidered jackets, Hank Aaron autographed baseball, two George Strait autographed pictures and 11 George Strait collector cards. And that’s just the top of the barrel. There are many, many more items: antiques, furniture, dishes, jewelry, gift certificates etc. Come join the bidding fun for some terrific objects. The best German Chocolate Cake contest will be judged between 12:30 and I p.m. with Mayor Jan Kennady, Assistant City Manager Don Ferguson and KNBT 92:1’s own Births ■ Bom to Sabrina Guerrero and Christopher Espinoza of New Braunfels at 3:49 p.m. April 7, 1997, a son, 8 pounds 8 ounces.

Incidentally, those Grand Champion and Reserve Champion cakes will be auctioned off after the judging. Other wonderful homemade baked goods will be on sale all day until sold out. The doggers and the line dancers will perform from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., and you are invited to line dance along with them, and then to keep on dancing from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. to the Gruene’s Crossing Western Band. All day there will be face painting by Jean Wilson, and the Clown Corps will be entertaining with balloon sculpture. And, in addition to all that, the big attraction is Clay Blaker and the Texas Honky Tonk Band performing for your listening and dancing pleasure from 9 p.m. until midnight. Thanks are in order to the Greatei New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, China-n-Things, Jak’s Food and Beverage, and Countryside Veterinary Clinic for their help in selling tickets for the Clay Blaker dance. Tickets are now on sale also at the Senior Center, $7.50 per person in advance; $8.50 at the door. Thanks also to Al Bickham, Frank Fleischmann, Clifford Wilson and Buzz Mann for doing the cooking. Al Bickham, food chairman, has really worked hard to make this event a success, and we all know by now how great the barbecue is. In fact, he is becoming renowned as a brisket cooker. And, the guys couldn’t do all this cooking without the marvelous oversized smokers lent to us by Hunter Industries, Don Anderson and James Stoelte — thanks to everyone. To those businesses that gave us donations to make this event possible, we are extremely grateful: Carlton Foods Inc., H-E-B, Schwab’s, TCBY, Alliant Food Service, Sysco Food Service, Maters Paper Co. and Star Awards. The overall committee for the Music Fest was chaired by Floyd Ball. Committee members were Al and Minnie Bickham, Dave and Lyra Hochanadel, Rose Hooker, Doris Wells, Margie Johnson, Jackie Scott, Peggy Patterson, Muriel Mooney, Ruthanna Ball, Ramon Chapa, Jim Roe, Paul Hammaker, Arlene Scheer, Mary Lowrie, Marie Dawson, Gladys Battling and Lonnie Carpenter. Many thanks to all these people, especially Floyd Ball who has worked so hard, and to Dave Hochanadel for appearing in our television commercial. Dave is such a ham. Last, but definitely not least, are the many volunteers who signed up to work the f6od line, the auction floor, the bake sale and the gates. What a dedicated bunch of people we have here at the Center. Volunteerism is definitely the name of the game in New Braunfels, as witnessed by last weekend’s VolunteerFest. It is especially so at the Senior Center, where more than 250 volunteers each month work collectively roughly 3,000 hours. If you don’t come to Wursthalle Saturday, beginning at noon, you are going to miss a great day with lots of good, good dancing and fellowship. Don’t disappoint us; we need you. Now, some special thanks to , I \ ff 4 =3, Her,. businesses and organizations that have contributed to the Expansion Fund as a result of our current drive. I will begin listing them each week and plan to list a number of individuals also who have contributed $1,000 or more. For this week, we are proud to report that the Downtown Rotary Club donated $6,000 to our cause. It certainly has lived up to its motto, “Service above Self.” Thanks also to the Noon Lions Club members, who showed they cared by contributing $1,000. Thanks to Zoeller Funeral Home for pledging $6,000, and again to Don Maxwell, who made a $1,000 donation. Also, at this time, thanks are in order for those contributing materials or labor and a listing of thosewill be presented when all the information is in. That’s the New Braunfels community spirit at work. Thanks to all. (Marie Dawson writes a weekly column for the Herald-Zeitung on matters of interest to senior citizens.)
