Editor, the Advocate:

The patriotic Warrior's Weekend sand sculpture is still on the front lawn of the Port O'Connor Community Center. It stands 15 feet tall and consists of 130 tons of sand. It took 12 days to build and was a labor of love for our wounded heroes who have sacrificed so much.

We would like to thank the following people and businesses of Port O'Connor who helped us in so many ways: Roger and Karen Krause, Bridget Sprague and Darrell McMahan, Mack and Peggy Elliott, J.R. Lange, Virgil Redding, Commissioner Kenneth Fenster, Kathy Yearwood, Bill Tigrett, Joyce Rhyne, Marilyn Giessel and Shelley Gasch, Kim Sonnier, Paul McGee, Martie Gonzales, Joanie and Erny McDonough, Emma Jean Dumas, Ann Pesek, Art's Barbecue, Captain G's, Cathy's, Hurricane Junction, Josie's, Mama's Pizza, Mini Mart and Speedy Stop.
