THANK YOU, TRIBUNE!

Dear Editor:

On behalf of my luncheon co-chair Carolyn Wise, FamilyTime Executive Director Judy Cox, the FamilyTime Board and all of the many volunteers, I want to thank you for helping us make the Mothers Are Jewels luncheon a great success. It was a beautiful event which was attended by more than 200 guests. This would not have been possible without the wonderful publicity you provided us. Our heartiest thanks and our sincere appreciation for attending the luncheon. I hope you enjoyed it and it was nice to finally meet you, albeit briefly. Please extend our appreciation to your staff for the great article that was written prior to the luncheon, and I appreciate the follow-up by Cherrie Ledoux. You are supporting a great organization much needed in our community which is well deserving of all our time and efforts.

SHOW RESPECT

Dear Editor:

Flying the American flag on one’s property or business is very patriotic. What isn’t patriotic and is, in fact, very disrespectful, is flying it when it has a hole(s) in it, is in tatters (trailing ends), is badly faded and/or is wrapped around its mast. Please, honor our flag under which countless soldiers and sailors lost their lives for the freedom “Old Glory” represents!

GUESS WHAT’S NEW

Dear Editor:

Exciting news! Precinct 4 residents will have a new community center in 2021. The newly named George H.W. Bush Community Center stands next to the Barbara Bush Branch Library in the Cypress Creek Cultural District, just as the late president and first lady stood side-by-side for 73 years. The property, formerly part of Cypress Creek Christian Church, will serve youth, families, senior adults, civic organizations and other groups. What better way to recognize our former president and first lady! As summer approaches, we have more events coming your way. Precinct 4’s Heritage Festival features historical games and activities, a Civil War battle re-enactment, and archaeological digs. I also join Congressman Ted Poe in May for the fifth annual Police Memorial honoring Texas law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. I hope to see you there! Visit Precinct 4 online to learn more about our road projects and upcoming events available through our community centers, parks department and Senior Adult Program.
