Green DeWitt had open house May 2

It only took two years for members of the Green DeWitt community to have their schoolhouse restored but more importantly it brought them closer together.

Sonja Wolf of Green DeWitt said, “We wanted to preserve the schoolhouse. It is the only building in the community as the center of activities.”

Wayne Wolf said, “It brought everybody together. Everybody was working together again.”

The big push to completion was when GBRA gave them more what they had expected.

Sonja said, “We were so excited. GBRA gave us central heating and air, fixed all of the electric, new ceiling lights, new stove and fridge, donated flowers outside and the volunteers who painted. This allowed us to use the GVEC grant to finish the bathrooms. We had a lot of private donations and a lot of people volunteered.”

By the end of March the Green DeWitt schoolhouse has nearly seen it’s completion of restoration. All that remains are the wood floors.

Pargmanns celebrate 60th

As one saying goes, “Behind every successful man, there is a woman. But behind a real woman, there is God.” That does not mean that there were no trails of determination, a path of overcoming failures and disappointments, and several rest stops along the way.

Gilbert and Mary Pargmann celebrated 60 years of marriage a little early on May 9 at the Nordheim Shooting Club. The house was packed with family and friends.

It all started when Gilbert attended a dance at the Nordheim Shooting Hall.

Gilbert said, “She (Mary Louise Pfeifer) was dancing with another girl. At that time the guys stood in the middle and my classmate dared me to clap in with the girl she was dancing with. I clapped in and danced with Mary instead.”

Mary lived in Victoria working as a telephone operator while Gilbert attended Texas State College in San Marcos.

Docents have something unique to offer museums

 

For docents Suzette Dillion, Judy Buenger and Josie Adams it is Christmas every week. Everyday they work, strangers become friends and the world gets smaller. Life for them is never dull since they started working at the museum.
 
Dillion and Buenger are docents at the Pharmacy and Medical Museum since the first day it opened in October 2014. 
 
Dillion said, “Buenger recruited me to help out and it sounded like it was fun. It is so interesting and it is fun. I enjoy working with Joe Reuss and Wayne Adickes.”
 
Buenger said, “I love the old stuff. I was not a history buff growing up but I do have a love for the older things.”

Annual city audit given 'clean opinion'

 

Cuero city council received the results of its annual audit at last week’s meeting at the city administration building.
 
Auditor Steve Van Manen of Victoria reviewed the highlights of the report which covered the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2014.
 
Van Manen opened by assuring the council the audit resulted in a “clean opinion” meaning city financial report is accurate.
The completed audit allows others to review the city financials. That could include creditors and bond rating agencies. They can determine whether the city’s financial condition improved or declined in the last fiscal year.
