Cuero Community Celebration complete success

Dear Editor,

It is with great delight that we deem this year’s July 4th Cuero Community Celebration a complete success! It was wonderful seeing our community celebrate such a special day with us riding the Bucky Express, playing in the bouncy houses, marching in the Young Patriots Parade, meeting adoptable pets, taking photos, dunking Mr. Varela and Mr. Laird, and enjoying sweets from our local bakers. Seeing our small town’s patriotism was simply beautiful. Children wore their red, white, and blue and pets were even dressed in their patriotic best! We saw families enjoying themselves despite the heat and watched as Cuero came together to make this celebration possible. This event could not have happened without the help of our great community. So many people and organizations aided us to make sure this event was a success. For that, we are truly grateful. We thank all community members and organizations who donated time, funds, baked goods for the Cake Walk, and items to the Bucket Auction.

Thank you to Grace Episcopal Church for allowing us to take over the event this year even though we had less than three weeks to coordinate and prepare. Many thanks to the Cuero Gobbler Band, Ted and Sheryl Winslow for sponsoring the inflatables, Linda Miller for allowing us the purchase of our new grill and popcorn machine, Dee Sager for the use of the Bucky Express, Garcia Lawn Care for the transport of the Bucky Express along with loaning us the riding lawnmower to pull it, Energy Waste for providing the hand washing stations required for this event along with filling the dunk tank, Pet Adoptions of Cuero for sponsoring face painting and balloon art by B. Bob and Bunny, Emily Davis for the dunking booth, Cuero Mayor Sara Post Meyer, Miss Cuero and her Court, Danielle Perales, Veteran Michael Jewell, Boy Scouts Troop 245, Cub Scouts Troop 241, Cuero Fire Department, Cuero Police Department, Cuero EMS, DJ Tony Maldonado, the DeWitt County Republican Party, and Trinity Church.

Special thanks to our fellow Non-Profits who participated in the event: Cuero Christ Healing Center, E’Tosha’s Back to School Drive (Viola Holman), and Pet Adoptions of Cuero. To the City of Cuero Parks Department, thank you for allowing us to hold this event at the Pavilion so we could work with other Non-Profits in the Cuero area along with the cleanup afterwards. It was wonderful connecting with our community and seeing children and their families enjoy a day out with food, fun, and festivities. We are truly blessed to be a part of such a fantastic community that made all of this possible. Thank you for supporting the Cuero Gobbler Band – one note at a time!

With heartfelt gratitude,

The Cuero Gobbler Band Boosters
