Local businesses such as restaurants, shops and golf courses look forward to wooing the winter Texans business. Besides staying in New Braunfels, winter Texans visit area attractions and participate in local activities.
Bill Halbert, golf pro at Sundance
Golf Course, said winter Texans were good customers for his course.
"We have a nice influx of winter visitors,” Halbert said. “We have a few already who are playing on a regular basis."
Ward Watson, assistant golf (no at Landa Park Golf Course, said winter Texans brought increased revenue.
"It is our busiest time of the
year,” Watson said. “For 20 rounds, it jumps from 120 people a day to 165 in the winter."
Brian Vauter, geologist at Natural Bridge Caverns, said winter Texans helped business, which slows after the tourist season ends September.
"You definitely see an increase in them," Vauter said. “Right around Christmas, it picks up.”

Memorial Elementary, a new program site might open.
"Nothing is definite,” Eanes said. “They (the children at Memorial Primary) can walk over to Memorial Elementary and can participate in the program "
The children recently set up a pen pal program with the children in a Ugandan village who are involved in a cmio-care program mere
The YMCA also is establishing a summer camp program, with information being released in the spring
The after-school program, which runs from 4 to 6 p m Monday through Fnday, began Aug 18, and 50 children ages 4 to 13 are enrolled The YMCA provides services at three sites: Memorial Elementary, Carl Schurz and Seek Elementary The program is open to all children in the county, and the charge is $5 40
per dsy. However, the YMCA adjusts fees according to a family's ability to pay, and no one is turned away.
“We are competitive with any other program in the community,” Eanes said of the $5 40 daily charge
Eanes was hired as program director of the YMCA in June, following the May decision to establish an after-school child-care program. The idea for the program was established last fall by Joe Bueno, executive director of the northeast branch of the San Antonio YMCA, who worked with Tim Briefly, chief operating officer of McKenna Memorial Hospital, to get the program started. Even though Comal County (SD had an afterschool program. New Braunfels ISD was in need
The Comal County Y first used an office at the McKenna Memorial Hospital complex, but has since moved into its own office, 144
Clemens Ave., Suite C. Questions about the after school program can be directed to Eanes at 606-9622.
The program is licensed by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services and provides a 1:10 teacher-to-child ratio. The state only requires a 1:24 ratio
The after-school program encompasses five components: academic enrichment, physical fitness, academic assistance (tutoring), social development and nutrition/wellness
A curriculum director in San Antonio sets up the monthly lesson plans for the children, so Eanes said the seven hired child-care providers for the program don't just sit and play games with the students
“You really have to see (the curriculum book) to realize the extent of the education activities,” Eanes said “The staff is outstanding The kids get a lot out of the program.”
