APPLAUSE Thursday, October 14,1993 The Big Picture La Marque ; Ramblings i Esther Rice I keep receiving letters from companies telling me to send them money so they can send me a prize I have won. Well, today I received a letter telling me I was to receive $9,770 before the end of the month but that I needed to send them $20 and my permission to continue working on the case. I wrote them back that I would send them the $20 when I received the money. I know that I wasted 29 cents, but I bet that company does not send me any more letters. Chamber garage sate In spite of the hot weather, rain and other little things, the La Marque Chamber of Commerce's annual garage sale was a success. Hundreds of items were sold and lots of clothes were given to several organizations. Gwen Cress, chairman, will need at least two weeks to rest, and so will several of her workers. It was hard work and long hours for some of the workers, but enough money was earned so that our streets will look pretty for the Christmas holiday. Thanks to Gwen, her workers and the people who donated the items. And the nice part is that it is clear profit. Shop at home Most of the stores in La Marque are full of beautiful Christmas things. I have visited most of the stores, and you can find anything you want right at home. Remember that we get the sales tax when we shop here, and our local people stay in business. As all of you know, I am always for La Marque first, so shop at home and keep our money in our city. 93 years young Vera Wakefield celebrated her 93rd birthday this past week with her family. She has four daughters: Estell Neuner, Ethel Ward, Cicile Houghs and Alve Krell. She has lots of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Vera is still Mama to her four daughters and still talks to them like they are 10 years old. All four girls and their husbands are wonderful vrith her. Happy birthday, i!rs. Wakeneld, and keep on making these four girls toe the line. You did a good job rsisiig them New faces at mall Karen Huff is the new assistant manager a: j-caa Star State Factory Stores. She and Betty Bonfoey, manager, have several new businesses about to open. The two girls are doing a great job. Over at the Paper Factory are Tammy Harrison, manager, and Allison "Worthen, associate manager. These two girls are giving me all the wrapping paper that I will need to wrap YAP presents. To Fort Worth Gwen Bulaich spent the week in Fort Worth visiting with her two sons and their families. She helped Larry celebrate his 50th birthday with a big family party. She also got to watch Norman's son play football. Gwen was just like any grandmother as she bragged about her grandson's dash for a touchdown. It is hard to believe Norman has a son old enough to be in high school and following in his father's footsteps. Youthful helpers The young people from the First United Methodist Church met Sunday afternoon and wrapped lots of toys for YAP to give to the needy La Marque children at Christmas. They had lots of fun and did a wonderful job. Gus's Barbecue The people at Gus's Barbecue in Texas City donated chopped barbecue for all the youths wrapping toys. Thanks friends, this was a big help. We all enjoyed the food. Prayers answered Fire Chief Clark Cofer was injured Saturday when a pickup truck collided with his bicycle. Lots of us in La Marque prayed for him Saturday night and Sunday in church. Our prayers were answered; he was not hurt as bad as we first thought. He was seriously injured, however. the aisles Stall photo by Tom Shea Wai " Matrt mana 9 er E ™'* Deffes and section, collecting $500 worth of toys for the annual *' ecXe f Ut!Ve direCt ° r ° f Gulf Coast B| 9 Gulf Coast Bi 9 Brothers-Big Sisters Christmas par- Brothers-Big Sisters, run through the Wal-Mart toy ty to be held Dec 12 Briefly : Sen.
