Editor:

As a retired San Antonio firefighter and public servant, and a recent performer for the Floresville Opry, I would like to take a moment to give my heartfelt thanks and a deep gratitude to the Wilson County Historical Society for providing a much-needed event for the citizens of Wilson County, Floresville, and surrounding areas.

As my fiancée and I first attended for the July 4th event, I was in complete awe, and could not have been happier to see so many of our “junior citizens” having such a wonderful time as they danced the night away as if they were taken back to their “good ol’ days” of dancing and listening to great traditional country music. I say “junior” because they are not “senior citizens”!

It was an honor and a privilege to have been invited to perform for such a great group of folks, and for those who organized the event, much-needed kudos to them as well! And, what can I say about the “Playin’ To Win” band! You are lucky to have Pat Fox and those in the band!

And I must say, little Julia Weaver was absolutely beautiful and sang with such great heart and, she too, must be commended for her performance at such a young age. I thank the society for including a young and talented individual!

As I will be performing at the Leon Springs Dance Hall on Sunday, Dec. 2, I will definitely make it a point to mention the good things you all are doing in Floresville and to make sure they keep an eye and ear out for your event in February.

And, yes, I will mention that I got my big start as a country performer at the Floresville Opry! You all are great and it would be an honor and a privilege to return and perform at your Opry again! I also hope and pray that one day I will conduct a show there in the future!!

Great job to the Wilson County Historical Society!!

Take care, God bless, and always buckle up!

CONRAD M. GONZALES JR.
