Keeping country music alive

Come and be a part of the Floresville Opry Thursday, Feb. 6, in the Floresville Event Center from 5-9:30 p.m. You will love the classic country music by Texas artists, featuring Billy Mata as well as the house band, “Playin’ to Win,” big black hats, and boot scootin’. The goal of the Floresville Opry is to keep classic country music alive, as many of the legends are gradually dying off.

The origination of the Floresville Opry began with a conversation between a few Wilson County Historical Society members in October 2011. They had said there were not many places in this area for seniors and others to get together, dance, and listen to good classic country music. An idea was generated; Viola Henke took charge and started a Floresville Opry to benefit the Wilson County Historical Society.

Pat Fox, originally from Floresville, who plays bass guitar, arranged the house band. Nov. 3, 2011, was their first Opry, and each Opry since just gets bigger and better. They have seating for 700 guests and plenty of room for dancing. The opries are every three months, the first Thursday of February, May, August, and November.

Proceeds from the events go toward community projects, historical markers, providing a grant for a high school student to scan cemetery records in the Wilson County Library, scholarships, and other community projects.

If you haven’t attended one of the opries, please put it on your things-to-do calendar for 2014. You will have a great time listening to the good music, dancing, and enjoying the fellowship.
