Band, choirs perform at Christmas Tree Lighting
The 27th annual Christmas Tree Lighting was held Dec. 4 on the corner of Courthouse and Esplanade streets. Holiday entertainment was provided by the Cuero High School band and area choirs. The event began in 1986 as the primary fundraiser for the Cuero–DeWitt Community Center Development Corporation. The organization dedicated the star on the community Christmas tree to Frederick “Freddy” William Fischer, who donated $1 million to the Cuero ISD Education Foundation toward the building of a performing arts center.
