KICK “Not wanted borer
I am writing to tell you how much I agree with your editorial opinion regarding the KKR rally.
Although the KJan has a legal right to peacefully gather, I join with you in calling for a total boycott of their activities. I also call on businesses in New Braunfels to not rent their hotel rooms to any known member, to not sell anything to any known member, to not serve any known member of this hate mongering group. I also call upon the media to not give these nuts the attention they so crave.
By our boycott and silent disapproval we will proclaim “New Braunfels DOES NOT WANT THEM HERE!”

The merry month of May is Older Americans Month, and one of the ways we plan to celebrate here at the Senior Colter is with a picnic. It will ye Tuesday, May 14, starting at 11:30 a.m. This picnic will be under the trees on our newly acquired property. Those who want to be inside may do so. In fact, we will probably be using the whole place. The picnic will take the place of the regular Tuesday congregate meal.
The food will be delicious as usual, but it will be picnic type menu.
In addition to senior’s celebration, the event will also be to celebrate Phase I of our expansion program, which is the purchase of the two-acre property and paving with new construction to follow. As Larry Kellerman explained to the group of volunteers who attended the volunteers luncheon on Monday, April 29, 1996, ground breaking for the new construction portion of die expansion will begin Sept 1,19%. The delay, of course, has to do with bids, choosing a general contractor, money, and all the factors that go along with this kind of venture. But, the die is cast; the time is set; and we go forward.
Please plan to attend the picnic. You are invited to spend the remainder of the day playing various games or joining in other festivities of the day. Entertainment is being planned. Mostly it is a time to get together with friends and enjoy the facilities and the food.
Approximately 130 people signed up for the volunteer luncheon last Monday, April 29. About I IO actually attended. The others may have forgotten, or since that was the day of the “big rain,” they may have just stayed home to keep dry. Anyway, it was a very nice affair with beautifully decorated tables. Incidentally, the table decorations were from the “Rain Dance” the Center held on the Friday night before. It must have worked because we had rain on Monday. Maybe we need to schedule many more rain dances.
Merman did, his usual excellent job of presenting the updat
ed expansion plans and explaining the procedure for this undertaking. Once again, we challenge the membership a cd the community to help the Senior Center make this project work.
We are very appreciative of the many donations that have already been made to our expansion fund. Your support is indicative of your desire to have a more workable facility and to be able to provide more services for the community.
Tobin Hoffmann and Les Thom and their committee will be conducting an all-out fund-raising campaign in the very near future. It is neces-saiy for us to know the extent of funding in order to determine what other steps must be taken to bring the renovation and expansion to reality.
In this month of celebration, I look back on all the seniors, and others, who made the current building possible. We called it the “Miracle on Landa Street.” It was a joint effort of people giving dollars, hours, materials, moral and physical support, and just plain old manual labor. They all had a dream and it became reality. Once again, we old-timers have a dream, and if I know New Braunfels, it will become a working miracle again.
Recently, in a San Antonio publication, “Our Ageless Times” (Spring 19%), an article appears entitled “In New Braunfels, Retirement Living is Good.” There were pictures of the court house, the plaza and the Comal County Senior Citizens Center. Also, Ronni D. Hoessli interviewed Gladys Barding about the Center, in which she spoke of die pride we feel for the role retirees play in New Braunfels and, in particular, at the Senior Center. Gladys described activities and services provided by the Center.
Also, you may remember that we have been written up in the National Senior Citizens’ Association Magazine as the “miracle” that happened, and it is recognized that we have one of the best senior centers in the country.
We all have a lot to be proud of here, and I know that if we all work together, we can create a second miracle. I believe in miracles. I also believe that the possible may be hard to do but that die impossible is just a little harder.
