Chamber mixer a success

Dear Editor,

Many “Thanks” to all who attended the first Yorktown Chamber Mixer on Thursday, April 23. Those who attended enjoyed refreshments courtesy of the chamber.

The organizations and businesses that were represented were the City of Yorktown, Pioneer Natural Resources, Conoco-Phillips, Finch Funeral Home, Yorktown Economic Development Corporation, Yorktown Western Days Association, First National Bank-Yorktown, Citizens Bank, Yorktown Nursing & Rehabilitation and The Cuero Record/Yorktown News-View.

We are happy to bring this event to the community of Yorktown and anticipate the next Chamber Mixer. The event provides a great networking opportunity for the community and we encourage everyone to attend and make connections with their peers.

Board holds off decision to build/remodel until new tax values are released

Yorktown Independent School District is in the beginning process of a facilities study and needs analysis. We are looking at developing a master plan that will insure that our facilities will handle our children’s needs for the present and in the future. As president of the board I would like to start by addressing three crucial points.

First, the Board wants to assure everyone in our district that we have not made any decisions regarding building new or renovating any of our facilities. We will not move forward until tax values have been adjusted to account for the drop in oil prices, a survey of the community and teachers has been completed and all facility options have been explored. Intelligent decisions can only be made when all this information has been compiled and studied.

Dear Editor,
A big thank you to the following businesses and indivduals for helping the cancer aid and research fundraiser held last Friday. Unfortunately, we did not have a huge number in attendance due to the thunderstorms but we were still able to raise $2000 and a fun time was had by all. Again thank you and God bless you.

Texas Independence Day in DeWitt County

 

Dear Editor,
 
I would like to emphasize that the DeWitt County Historical Commission celebrated Texas Independence day on March 2. The settlers that were recognized at the event had all participated in some way in the fight for independence, and their service to the Republic of Texas was enumerated.
 
DeWitt County and Cuero were not names known in 1836 like Gonzales and Goliad, but the settlers in this area were very much a part of the move to independence. Their descendants are proud of their ancestors’ participation, and we were proud to honor them.
