The Moore Community Club Summer Fest Committee met last week to discuss additional details of the event and extended its thanks to those who have donated items for the festival.
“Thank you to those who have already been so gracious and have been donating,” MCIC representative Shelly Delgado said. “We are asking anyone who can donate to please do so! This donation can be in the form of supplies, monetary, time, or services. The success of this event is determined by the vital participation of our community, and we appreciate any and everything sent our way that can help us out.
“Laura Dominquez is coordinating through Facebook the items we need donated of and of course we could always use extra helpers the day of.”
The Moore Summer Fest is slated for July 9-10. BBQ cookoff contestants will set up for their night of cooking on July 9, with a Chief Cook meeting to follow. Anyone interested in participating in the BBQ Brisket cookoff can contact Shelley Delgado at (210) 889-9350, Bobby Evans at (830) 355-7564 or Jesse Carrasco at (210) 326-6320.
Briskets will be judged on July 10 but the MCIC will also be hosting a sausage plate sale. Pre-sale plates are $8 and $10 on the day of the sale. Drinks will be sold separately. Pre-sale plates can be ordered by calling Laura Dominguez at (210) 947-5629.
Other festival activities include a cornhole tournament, ticketed carnival games and cash prizes for the tournament and cook-off. Vendors will also be food and other items. Anyone interested in being a vendor, can call Delgado or Dominguez at at the numbers listed for the official rules and regulations as well as to submit the $40 payment.
There will be another Moore Summerfest Committee Meeting on June 17 at 7 p.m.
“It’s not too late to join the Summer Fest committee and we highly encourage anyone with any ideas or questions to attend and/or contact one of our club officers with inquiries,” Delgado said. “The committee meeting is also a good time for anyone to drop off their forms and payment for the cook-off or vendor slots.”
Anyone unable to attend the committee meeting can drop off paperwork and payments at the Community Center on June 26 at 9 a.m. As the grounds are prepped for the event and the organization hosts a sign-up party.
“Don’t wait too long though,” Delgado said. “We may have to cap the number of entries due to space constraints so hurry and sign up while space is still available.”
Along with its planned summer events, the MCIC is still hosting its food distribution service, the Moore Senior Box Program.
“We are still working with residents to get enrolled in this food distribution program for the elderly,” Delgado said. “We ask that you continue to spread the word so all qualified seniors can benefit from this program. Anyone wishing to sign up can call (830) 931-1740 for information.”
Additionally, Delgado said anyone wishing to receive Frio County commodities can call (830) 931-1740 to be added to the list.
“Thanks to the hard work of Rosa Cubriel, Butch and Claudia Sturdevant and Jerry Moya, Moore will be receiving assistance from the Frio County Food Bank Distribution Pop Up, slated for June 14,” she said. “Distribution should begin sometime after 1 p.m., watch for more informational announcements on our Facebook Community Page.
“Volunteers are also needed to help coordinate this event as well. Reach out to Claudia Sturdevant if you would like to help.”
The next regular monthly meeting of the Moore Community Improvement Club is July 7 at 7 p.m. at the Moore Community Center.
