Decorated from top to bottom in festive holiday fashion, the Dewees-Remschel house was the setting for the Wilson County Historical Society’s Christmas party and monthly meeting.

All members and guests were invited for the informative yet food-, music-, and fun-filled evening. Martha Anne Duran, Richard Chavez, and his daughter from “Courage Under Fire Band” entertained throughout the evening with lovely Western and holiday musical selections.

President LaJuana Newnam-Leus gave the minutes and brief report on the month’s activities, which included the progress of the Floresville Opry plans.

Who can recall listening intently to static and turning the knob on the radio trying to tune in the Grand Ole Opry being broadcast on WSN Radio out of Nashville? The historical society is going full steam ahead for our own Opry on Thursday, Feb. 2, in the Floresville Event Center.

All society members were encouraged to sell the $6 tickets to help make this event even more successful than the last.

This month’s educational speaker was Steven Raabe, who spoke on the history of the Dewees Ranch and many other farming communities of Southwest Wilson County. Raabe is a wealth of knowledge regarding the development of this area along with the formation of our lives here in Wilson and Karnes counties.

The evening concluded with a lovely potluck dinner and Happy New Year wishes to all.
