Activity directors were treated to a show and lunch on Monday to show how much they are appreciated for all the work they do for the Rio Grande Valley RV and MH parks. Here at the Winter Texan Times we know that without them, we wouldn’t have much of a paper. We are all so very thankful for what you do for the community.
Mission Bell hosted the event where they served lunch and activity directors were entertained by Leslie Blasing, Helen Russell and Company, Rick McEwen and Brenda Coin and Sheila and Denny. There were several vendors on hand as well, including Winter Texan Times, Go With Jo, Sky Med, Beach Park, Ron Hoover and Pickpocket Gene.
Leslie Blasing, as always, kept the crowd entertained with her beautiful voice. Helen Russell and Company had the crowd rolling with their comedic take on the classics. Rick McEwen did some Kenny Rogers and brought the crowd to laughter as well with his jokes. Brenda Coin joined Rick on stage for a few songs with her lovely voice – she and Rick will be booking shows together and separate for next year. Sheila treated us to a sample of their Dolly tribute with Denny’s deep bass really filled out their version of Elvira. Their last show this season is today at VIP-La Feria.
All the wintertainers did a great job keeping the activity directors entertained with their lively music and banter.
In between the entertainment, vendors were able to draw numbers for door prizes that were provided by the vendor. Winter Texan Times had three winners that were able to take home some gift cards, gift certificates, mugs, treats and a variety of other goodies.
At the end of the event, those in attendance were finally able to touch the boxes that tormenting them the entire time – they were strictly forbidden to touch the boxes when they arrived. Inside the box were some tokens of appreciation including candy and a scratch off. When getting to the scratch off, attendees were instructed to scratch theirs all at the same time. Several people won one to 20 dollars.
Again, we here at the Winter Texan Times want to express our thanks to the activity directors throughout the Rio Grande Valley. We are so thankful for all your hard work to bring people to your parks and to keep them engaged – to keep them coming back. We depend on you a lot and look forward to every opportunity we have to get out there and enjoy some of your activities.
