We have had a great summer here in Cuero. School is now back in session, and our Gobblers and Lady Gobblers are ready for another great year.
We finished our summer off with the City of Cuero Tunes ’N Trucks event in Downtown Cuero on Aug. 9. There were a variety of food trucks and live music performances by locals Devyn Whittington, Mitchell Crain and Matt Moeller at the Cuero Market Pavilion. Cuero Turkeyfest announced its 2019 race team members and hosted the turkey selection to select this year’s Ruby Begonia with a race between two feathered friends “that were in no real hurry to get to the finish line.” The new Ruby will be ready to head to the turkey race in Minnesota in September and then race in Cuero on Oct. 12 at the Great Gobbler Gallop to compete for the title of the World’s Fastest Turkey. Fun was had by all ages.
The Cuero Chamber of Commerce unveils its new parade float
The Cuero Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new Miss Cuero Parade float at the Tunes ’N Trucks event with a ribbon-cutting. The new float will represent Cuero and the Cuero Chamber of Commerce in several parades throughout the year. The beautiful new float represents many aspects of Cuero and was made possible through sponsorships and fundraising by the Miss Cuero Court.
The World Series of Cuero
The World Series of Cuero was a successful fundraising event Aug. 3 at the Venue on Church Street. We would like to thank everyone who attended, sponsored and volunteered at the event. Funds raised will assist the Chamber with providing leadership and business development programs in the community along with scholarships for Cuero seniors through the Citizen of Tomorrow Scholarship award. The big winner of the event was Jared Coburn, who won a $2,500 cash value prize and a custom bracelet made and donated by Deutsch & Deutsch Jewelers. This event would not be possible without the help of our sponsors and community support. We appreciate their support very much.
