The Mother’s Day Tea scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 18 has been cancelled. We will pick another month for it again, I promise. Due to the increase in COVID cases in Kerrville, we felt it best to hold off for a while.
Our “Round to Remember” Golf Tournament this weekend was a great success. Matt, Annette and the crew at Riverhill Country Club provided an exceptional atmosphere and the weather was perfect.

Whew, that is a lot of people and organizations that helped us make this a successful event. We could not do this without your help. Our Dementia Care Advocates program will hit the ground running to make your support spread to the whole community. Thank you.
Many thanks to all the wonderful players and teams that came out to support the Dietert Center and our Dementia Care Advocates program. Also, we couldn’t have pulled this all off without our great friend and partner – Rick Perry and his Caring Senior Service of Kerrville.
Thank you, Dietert staff, Peggy, Patti, Shelly, BK, Nick, and volunteers, Bethany Brown, Darren Dreyer, Karen Martin, Ted and Donalie Murray and Albert Vasquez and his family for pitching in to help us out as well. We had a very special moment of prayer and acknowledgment of Patriot Day with a musical tribute by George Eychner on the trumpet and Tivy High School student Sydney Robinson singing the National Anthem. It was a touching remembrance of those lost and affected on 9-11-2001.
The fresh air did everyone some good and made it a great day for those who took home the prizes. First Gross went to Garrett Kaiser, Conor Baehre, Sean Stumbo and Billy Thomas; First Net went to team Happy State Bank – Tommy Daniels, Tabor McMillan, Bubba Bowsorth, and Tony Martino; Second Net went to team Chris Avery – Shawn Jones, Bill Renfro, Jeff Fierst, and Kelby Rule; and Third Net went to team Terminix – Kyle Bond, Doug Johnson, Rowdy Hambrick, and Kenneth Early. Closest to the Pin winners were Hut Smith, Chuck Swallow, and Jeff Harris. Congratulations to all the winners.
