Letter to the Editor

Thanks for the donation


Dear Manager,
The Waelder Homecoming Foundation Inc. is a non-profit community service organization. Over the last several years, we have donated over $20,000 to the Waelder area. The donations received will continue to help the Waelder Volunteer Fire Department, Waelder Community Center, Waelder Public Library and Waelder High School scholarships.
This year we awarded seven scholarships at $500 each to Kashanna Durst, Fabiola Flores, Ke’Sha Moore, Auturo Morales, Ashlynn Noyola, Malorie Puente and Laisha Paramo Rangel, 2018 graduates of Waelder High School. We also awarded funds to Cheyanne Caballero, to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum. This is a great opportunity for an aspiring medical professional. Upon completion, Cheyanne will received two college credits.
We had over 100 items in our silent auction this year to help raise funds at our annual Waelder Homecoming on June 10 at the Waelder High School gym. Your donation of a one-year subscription valued at $42 helped our silent auction raise over $3,400. Thank you so much for your help.
