We had a beautiful day last Thursday for the ribbon cutting and lunch at the new Onion Creek Senior Center in Buda. Our thanks to all who attended and to all the wonderful volunteers who helped with the event. Thanks also to the Buda/Kyle Girl Scouts for the Valentine decorations, cards, balloons and the cookies.
A giant indoor garage sale will be held at the “old” senior center on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Our membership as well as residents of the community have donated many treasures, so there will be something for everyone. Since the sale is indoors, it will be held rain or shine. Join us on Saturday at FM 2770 and Bartons Crossing, behind the Justice of Peace and Tax Offices in Buda.
Tete Rodriquez had the first birthday celebration in the new Onion Creek Senior Citizens Center last Saturday night where family and friends gathered to celebrate his 80th birthday. About 200 well- wishers enjoyed a barbeque dinner, with cake, entertainment by a mariachi band and dancing to DJ music. Pictures and Rodriquez history was displayed and the honored man was well dressed in his favorite Longhorn orange shirt and black hat.
Birthday wishes go out to Linda Doherty and Dorothy Smith on Feb. 22; Linda Reeves on Feb. 23; Billie Franke on Feb. 24; Jacinto Castro on Feb. 26; Harold Christian, Kayrin Jones and Frankie Haberer on Feb. 27; 91-year-old Jud Brodie on Feb. 28.
Best wishes go out to Alex and Irene Barrera of Kyle as they celebrate their 67th wedding anniversary on Feb. 24.
Precinct 2 county offices in Kyle will be closed beginning at noon on Thursday, Feb. 21 and all day on Friday, Feb. 22 so that the offices can be moved to the new county building. The new building is on FM 2770, just south of Barton Middle School. The Buda Tax Office has not moved yet and WILL be open for vehicle registration and other tax business. The Buda office is located at 500 FM 2770 (Jack C. Hays Trail).
Start looking for the first bluebonnet and let us know where you see it.
Don’t miss the annual Buda Elementary School Carnival this Saturday from 11a.m. until 4 p.m. There will be food, tons of games, live performances, karaoke and the ever popular silent auction. Bring the family for all the fun and support Buda Elementary School.
