Wurstfest, begun in 1961 as a tribute to sausage making and this city’s German heritage, isn’t just a party, and its no small sausage fest. Wurstfest is this city’s biggest nonprofit and serviceAUTHORS CONTINUED FROM Page 1AComal students learn to enjoy writing and illustrated their own books and invited family, friends and community leaders to the school Tuesday to celebrate their success. Teachers worked with students for three weeks to collect the stories and drawings before sending them to the publisher. Each student got one book for free, but parents were invited to purchase additional copies. The project, started by (Jetties at her last school in 2000, encourages students to be more proactive in their writing. “Once they see the finished product, they realize how important the revision and cor- organization fund-raiser. It is put on each year by a large cadre of community volunteers noticeable during the festival for their brightly colored traditional German lederhosen and dirndls. Local service clubs and nonprofits run some 40 food and drink concession stands and the Wurstfest parking areas, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for good works — and pumping millions of dollars into the local tourist economy each year. “It’s great for the city,” Heitkamp said, nodding toward the Marktplatz, where most of Wurstfest’s vendors set up. “Fx)ok at all those nonprofit entities. If you go to another county, they say, ‘Boy, you don’t have any problems rection process is,” Gerdes said. “When the books were delivered, their little faces just beamed, and they looked so proud.” Gerdes let her students pick their own topics. Many, like Lehmann, wrote about animals. Jayci Givens made her pets the main characters in her story. “I wanted something to remember my pets by," she said, flipping through pages covered with crayon drawings of dogs, cats, a horse and a canary. “My pets are my best friends." Cassandra Zuniga’s book, “living (Creatures,” had one animal for every letter of the alphabet. “I like creatures,” she said, tracing her finger along the edge of a colorful butterfly. Although the project was supposed to encourage writ- in New Braunfels because you have a great venue for fundraising.’” “Wurstfest is important to the community because of all the lives it touches and all the good it does,” said Director of Wurst Relations Herb Skoog. I leitkamp said he was honored to be selected to a post held in the past by Don Bedford, Larry Kunkel and a who’s who of New Braunfels civic and community leaders. "It’s not something you anticipate,” Heitkamp said, laughing. “I didn’t think I'd live that long. But I don’t know of any greater honor the Wurst Association has." A fifth-generation New Braunfelser, Heitkamp has held every honor the Wurst Association bestows. Recent- ing, Zuniga did not hesitate to say drawing was her favorite part of the process. While the older students produced a b(X)k all by themselves, Lisa Batey’s second-graders worked together to create “The ABC’s of Comal [elementary.” “Each kid had one page, but some doubled up,” Batey said. “We really had tun doing this. I hope it becomes a new tradition.” Batey said she noticed an immediate increase in excitement about other writing assignments after tile children finished working on the books. Alyssa Schuetz did the “M” page. In “The ABC’s of Comal Elementary,” M is for music. “I like writing now,” Schuetz said while sitting on her grandmother’s lap. Would she like to create another Ixxtk? Schuetz txxided ly named an “opa emeritus,” he has been president, vice president and was a trustee for many years. During a distinguished military career, Heitkamp flew 1,300 missions over Vietnam and later commanded the 341st Strategic Missile Wing. He was awarded the Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Meritorious Service Medal and the Air Medal, retiring as a colonel in 1983. He was a vice president of Chase Bank until his retirement in 2000, and has served on the boards or as member of many local non-profit and service organizations. Winner of the Besserung Award in 1994, Heitkamp is president of the Braunfels Foundation Trust. enthusiastically. like the other adults in atten-dance for the celebration, Schuetz’s aunt, Cindy Leissner, received a handwritten invitation from her niece requesting her presence. “I’m just so impressed by the whole thing, especially the quality of the books,” she said. “This will be something she can keep forever.
