Chamber of Commerce annual banquet brings a record crowd to the Civic Center
The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce pulled off another successful annual meeting and banquet. A record crowd was in attendance, completely filling the Civic Center.
The Chamber has perfected a fast-moving, entertaining evening of Chamber accomplishments and awards. This year’s program included two separate slide presentations. The first had to do with Chamber programs and their successes. Herb Skoog was the commentator. The second was a quick review of Sesquicentennial activities, coordinated by the Chamber. Don Ferguson was the commentator.
Chair of the board awards were presented to Linden Anderson, H.E. “Easy” Hall, Morris “Moe” Schwab, Raymond “Skip” Bartram, Jan Kennady and the New Braunfels Little League with Ricky Bueche and Tim Mundt accepting the award. Those being inducted into the Hall of Honor were Jean Pfeuffer, Betty Richter and Tommy Zipp.
In other activities, the monthly Membership Mixer cash drawing was held. Susanna Harrison, whose name was drawn, was not present to win the $ 150 award.
The drawing for one of the Sesquicentennial quilts was held. There was a collective sigh of relief when Comal County resident Ann Kuehler’s name was pulled out of the hopper. We were all jealous we didn’t win but pleased to know that the beautiful, historical work of art will stay here in the New Braunfels area with a faithful community supporter.
Another important happening was the sealing of the Sesquicentennial
Time Capsule. The capsule will be buried on the Civic Center grounds and will be opened exactly 50 years from now — on Jan. 26, 2045, our community’s 200th birthday.
Herb Skoog was recognized for his leadership as chairman of the Sesquicentennial Commission. He received a highway sign that had been used last year designating New Braunfels a Sesquicentennial City.
Two big moments of the night belonged to the Purdums. Tom Pur-dum ended 30 years of service to New Braunfels as head of the Chamber of Commerce. A travel gift certificate in the amount of $5,300 — contributions from friends and chamber members — was presented to Tom and his wife, Bobbie. The gratitude of the chamber was expressed by outgoing president Carter Casteel. Tom received a spontaneous, extended, standing ovation. The audience clearly agreed with Carter’s words of praise.
Bobbie Purdum received the prestigious Besserung Award. Bobbie is certainly well deserving of this recognition. She has given years of volunteer service to the community, being especially involved in historic preservation. Just last year her work as historical chairman for the Sesquicentennial steering committee resulted in many permanent reminders of our community’s past and our Sesquicentennial year observations. THREE CHEERS FOR BOBBIE — and then some.
The evening ended when O.A. “Skip” Stratemann assumed the chairman of the board position for 1996. It was a great evening. Michael Meek, new Chamber president, can be proud of the evening’s success.
Some members attending the evening’s activities were Mildred and Ralph Reed, Cash and Dennis Hermes, Jack and Marty Lindley, Darlene and Jerry Cook, Lupe and Irene Castaneda, June and John Doster, Robert Konkel, Elena and
Tommy Hovestadt, Kathy and Ted Cook, Judy and Tobin Hoffmann and Rev. Judy Miller and her husband, Tom.
Traveling to Plano last weekend was a group of New Braunfelsers. The occasion was the baptism of young Lindsey Caddell Berger (age 22 months), daughter of Cindy and John Berger. The baptism took place at St. Andrew United Methodist Church. Donna and Scott Schepper, of Dallas, stood by as Lindsey’s godparents. Amy and Chad Maisel, Linda Allure and Andy Henderson, of Dallas, were “Lindsey supporters.”
Attending the baptism from New Braunfels were Lindsey’s grandparents, Linda and Lynn Caddell and Janelle Berger. Also present were Joy Caddell, Lindsey’s aunt, and Jason Hahn. Aunt Teresa Berger and Uncle David Berger, plus John Berger’s godparents, Roxolin and Doyle Krueger, also attended.
John is with the Special Events department at EDS Corporation in Plano and Cindy does private court reporting.
Good news for the northwestern part of New Braunfels. The renovation and expansion of the Landa Plaza Wuest’s store is continuing. According to Bobby Wuest, president of the Wuest Corporation, the expansion into the old Winn’s store space will be completed in about three months. The store will be an extension in everything — space, variety and products.
The Wuest Corporation is a family-owned and -operated corporation. Bobby’s brother, Buddy, and Bobby’s son, Phil, are vital parts of the family business. The corporation headquarters is in Seguin.
Some Wuest management people that we get to claim as New Braunfelsers are Johnny Buesche, director of security of all grocery and convenience stores for the Wuest Corporation; Manard Ivy, grocery buyer for
the corporation; Ray Scalek, director of all grocery store operations for the corporation; and James Weidner, manager of the Landa Plaza Wuest’s store.
The Wuest Corporation has been a supporter of New Braunfels activities for many years. They were early contributors to the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture and the Hummel Museum.
The Leadership Conference for Mary Kay directors was held in San Antonio recently. Directors Ann Kuehler, Shari Kasburg and Kathy Jankowski, of New Braunfels, were present. They were among the 6,500 in attendance.
The personal appearance of the firm’s founder, Mary Kay, was an awesome event for the local directors. She emphasized her close feelings for her directors, calling them her “family.”
Mary Kay is the second most recognized name in the U.S., next to Coca Cola. Mary Kay cosmetics are now in 25 countries of the world.
This winter weather the U.S. is having was great for a couple of avid skiers from New Braunfels. Carol and Richard Glenville flew to Aspen, Colo., for a 7-day vacation. According to Carol, the snow was terrific at Snowmass, where they skied. There was plenty on the ground when they got there and plenty came down.
The only problem occurred when they tried to return home to Texas. The weather had closed the airport completely and an avalanche had closed the road to Denver. A day later it was only through a brief window of sunshine that the two got to fly out.
Richard is retired from the Exxon Corporation in Houston and Carol was in public relations with the Hill and Knowlton Company before her retirement.
(Roxolin Krueger is a New Braunfels resident.)
