The Moore Community Improvement Club hosted its Moore Country Christmas event over the weekend with an assist from the Frio County Sheriff’s Office.
“We want to thank everyone who showed up and showed out this past weekend at the Moore Country Christmas event,” MCIC representative Shelley Delgado said. “Santa had hundreds of toys to give away and all of the kids on the nice list were able to get a gift early this year thanks to the many generous donors.
“We are also proud to report that we had over twenty vendors who braved the early weather and stuck it out all the way thorough to finish successfully,” she said. “A special thanks to Sheriff Mike Morse and Chief Deputy Peter Salinas for bringing this event to Moore, however, this event would not be possible without the time, effort, and donations of our many patrons.”
There were 16 entries in the cookie contest and Melani Malsbury’s hot cocoa cookie won first place and Erica Salinas turned in both the second and third place entries. Mario Martinez donated the first place prize for the contest while the Moore Volunteer Fire Department donated the second and third place prizes.
Nine contestants were entered in the tamale contest and Trisha Riveria won top honors while Concha Flores came in second and Freddy Morales finished third in the contest. Rueben and Irene Rodriguez donated all three prizes for the event.
“We’s also like to thank everyone who helped with the logistics of the event,” Delgado said. “Laura Dominquez helped coordinate the vendors, Martin and Brandy Perez donated use of the port-a-potties, the sanitation stations were donated by Chavera’s and trash services were donated by Johnathan Cubriel.
“The Moore Volunteer Fire Department also donated the light plant while entertaining many, along with Bigfoot VFD by providing the S’mores and a warm fire.
“Cassie Brewer, Madison and Rayann Pike truly transported everyone that walked into the community center and made this experience so much more special with their Santa Workshop decorations,” Delgado said. “Thank you, Colter Finto and Wes and Mary Meyers for your jolly ‘special part’ of our holiday magic. “Myers, Butch and Claudia Sturdevant, Thelma Rodriguiez, Yolanda Castello, Robert Herrera, and his wife, Rosa Cubriel, Richard and Donna Rigdon, Jesse Carrasco, Bobby and Johnnie Evans, Madison Pike, Laura Dominguez, Scooter Brewer, and Meghan Finto all stepped up and helped out the day of the event and we could not be more grateful for all of their continued support.”
On Sunday, Laura Dominquez and a crew of helpers prepared 122 tamale dinner meals for local seniors. Dominguez extended their thanks to those that helped coordinate the meal and donated gifts for the seniors, the hall decorators, the food preparers, and the entertaining elf servers.
“What a great turnout for our seniors and great way to start out Christmas week,” Delgado said. “Thank you, Laura, for all you do.”
Monday evening Richard and Denise Graff were escorted around Moore to look and judge the ‘Be the Light’ entries. Eight houses were entered in the contest and a link is available on the MCIC Facebook page with the list of entries and photos of the homes. The Jacksons took first place in the event, the Rendons were second and the Villareals finished third. Suzanne Finto donated the first place cash prize while an anonymous donor provided the second and third place prizes.
The next monthly meeting of the Moore Community Improvement Club is scheduled for January 5 at 7 p.m.
