New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 18, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Senior Center sends HeraldZeitung g Sunday May iSsra 5A Today 1 would like to thank all the donors and all the purchasers and all the volunteers who helped make the Comal County Senior Citizens Centers first annual Bluebonnet Country Music Fest April 26 a reality and a success Success was limited somewhat After much discussion it was decided that the weather may have been responsible It turned cold that day and rained early on One of the main reasons for not reaching the goal we expected may have been the short time we had to organize and publicize The whole idea was only formulated in January and then location and ideas totally changed in February so time was short for this type of undertaking Also there were conflicts such as a golf tournament Fiesta Lions district convention Eagles dance etc But we did it And to all those who are interested and who worked so hard and to those faithful people who came to the event we want to say thanks again After all expenses we did make approximately and thats not bad Its just that we had expected to make around Oh well just wait till next year It was the live and silent auctions Marie Dawson that really carried the day It was amazing how many people attended the auctions and bought many items Also it was great fun T K Schneider is an excellent auctioneer and I think everyone had fun The grand champion and reserve champion winners for the best German chocolate cake as judged by Mayor Jan Kennady Assistant to the City Manager Don Ferguson Fred Stockwell of and Color Express Karen Cook were Clara Schriewer and Evelyn Friesenhahn respectively Claras cake auctioned for and was sold to Frances BoydHull and Evelyns cake was auctioned to Marlene Thomas for Evelyn is one the Centers very own cooks Arent we lucky Again our many thanks to the HeraldZeitung and to Radio New Braunfels for the fine coverage of the April 26 event Let me tell you about the nice offer made by Color Express Through the month of May they have a special on copies 99 cents each any quantity 8 by 11 inches No minimums The beautiful thing about this is that Adam and Karen Cook are giving 25 cents on each copy directly to the Comal County Senior Citizens Center expansion project Hows that for community spirit Adam says thats the way it works The businesses helping the community and the community helping businesses And believe me we need your help Also Fred Stockwell is planning a Birthday Bash for the New Braunfels radio stations in Gruene Hall on June 8 with bands and dancing and all kinds of things Proceeds from the bash will benefit the Senior Centers expansion fund Well know more about that later and pass on the details Now for a construction
