Christmas starts early for FBC Cuero

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Christmas is still five months away, but people in the Cuero community are already starting to get in the spirit of the holidays by preparing shoeboxes with gifts for children around the world.
 
Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child has been a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse where shoeboxes are packed with toys, toiletry items and Bibles. These boxes are then wrapped and sent all over the world to children who would otherwise receive very little during the Christmas season.
 
First Baptist Church in Cuero has already delivered over 800 shoeboxes to the Guadalupe Baptist Association office in Victoria, the checkpoint for OCC in the area.

Saturday was a day of music and remembrances as a large crowd was on hand for the dedication of a Texas Historical Commission marker for Daule School. There marker and ceremonies were at Daule City Park.
 
Cuero Colored High School was founded 123 years ago. The name of the school was changed in 1937 to Daule High School to honor one of its distinguished principals, Eugene Daule.

"God had His hand on me"

When Dwain Harbers tells you his story, he is moved to tears knowing the grace given over and above what he could possibly imagine. Harbors is living a full life, a life where coincidence and music is surpassed by how he said, “God had His hand on me.”

Harbors grew up in Nordheim where he was introduced to play the trumpet in fourth grade. When he entered sixth grade, the high school band was so small that the school combined grades 6-12. Advancing his skill with the trumpet it soon allowed him to play in college. Harbors graduated Nordheim High School in 1964 and went to play in the band and attend Southwest Texas State University in San Marcus, Lyndon B. Johnson’s alumni school.

During President Johnson’s tenure in the oval office, the SWTSU played in numerous of his events including his inaugural on Jan. 20, 1965.

Demolition underway on Cuero City Hall

Citizens of Cuero passed a bond issue in 1903 to build a new two-story brick city hall at the corner of Main and Gonzales streets. In 1954 the second story was removed and city hall was substantially remodeled. Cuero’s administration and police department moved across the street into the new and expanded city administrative building a couple of years ago. Cuero’s original city hall is now being demolished. After it is removed that area is planned for more parking spaces downtown.
