Cuero ISD band brings flags to yards

 

Members of the Cuero High School band picked up flags from their Project Patriot fundraiser Sept. 6.
 
According to band director Rick Varela, holidays and calendar days such as Labor Day, Fourth of July and Flag Day are among some of the events included in the subscription. The band boosters, along with band students travel to each subscribing home and place the flag in an assigned place within the yard of the property. In the past, it was only done for a single day. This year, flags will be left in the yards for a week. It is the responsibility of the home or business owner to remove the flag during evening hours.
 
All money raised directly supports the band in all of its endeavors.

NHS students volunteer to reshelve CIS library

 

This past summer, the Cuero Intermediate School underwent some major renovations. Renovations included HVAC upgrades, restroom renovations, asbestos removal, ceiling grid replacement and new flooring.
 
“All teachers had to completely empty their classrooms at the end of school in May, and put everything into storage until the week before school in August when the renovations were complete,” said Cuero ISD district library coordinator Cat Haley. “This meant the library had to be boxed up and moved into storage, too.”
 
The total number of books in the CIS library is 8,903. It took CIS library manager Glenda Gregorcyk 21 days to pack 278 boxes.

YHS Class of 1969 gathers for 45th reunion

On August 8 the Yorktown High School graduating class of 1969 held their 45th reunion at the home of Harland and Judy Schlenker. Nineteen of the original 62 member class were in attendance. The afternoon event was filled with fun, bountiful food, and lots of sharing of life stories which improved as the afternoon continued. Everyone told of their travels through time and how they made their mark in history. Much conversation centered around retirement, grandchildren, and vacations. Schedule conflicts prevented several from the event so phone calls, emails, and personal messages were shared with the group. A unanimous agreement was made that another reunion would be held in five years. The class of 1969. Front row from the left are Nellene (Wehe) Dlugosch, Rayba (Reynolds) Schroller, Brenda (Light) Podsum, Carole (Berkenhoff) Seiler, Theresa (Respondek) Spellacy, Jolene Meuret. Middle row: Barbara (Arnold) Audilet, Jimmy Lechuga, Judy (Metting) Schlenker, Aubry Crisp, Don Dubose.
