AAA...bulletin.....Vet Day float.......11/2/15

 
 
WHAT CAN I SAY, I HAD THE ARTICLE WRITTEN FOR LAST WEEK'S BULLETIN, BUT FAILED TO CHANGE THE CODE FOR LAST WEEK, SO THAT'S WHY IT IS IN THIS WEEK....SORRY!
 
No, the weaher was not pouring down rain, thank goodness, but in spite of 
the fact that the Veteran's Day Parade itself was cancelled, the Parks & Recreation got togeher and put on a fantastic replacement at the San Marcos City Activity Center.  The place was packed with veterans and other individuals, and KIDS!  We had probably close to 30 kids that might otherwise have ridden in the Kid's Brigade, but instead was paraded around the Center with pinwheels which they made prior to the festivities began.  Our club was able to bring two new bikes & helmets, donated by the San Marcos Academy store, and after the 'parade', names were drawn, a girl and a boy, who won those two new bikes.  The girl's bike was won by Valentine Dominguez and the boy's bike was won by Diego Quintanilla.  Congratulations to both of you.  We hope to see you riding in next year's parade.  
      We also had a great turnout from our Kiwanis club, all decked out in their new Veteran's Day T-Shirts.  They were: Kelli Whigham, Steve Whigham,Frederick Case, Rob Martin, Moe Johnson, Del Brown, Gary Nelson, Gary Strunk, Doug Balkman, Tracy Herman, Beverly Crumley, Randy Cook, Pam Cook, Jude Prather (he did a lot of the announcing),Ted Breihan, Marcie Burleson, Veronique Hahn, and Chester Banks.
