valentine's business social
The Silver Eagle Distributors building on Lowe Dr. was the site of the Del Rio Hispanic Chamber's February monthly membership meeting and Annual Valentine Social. Sponsors for the event were Silver Eagle and Border Federal Credit Union, both of whom did an outstanding job in giving the event a festive and inviting atmosphere! Our thanks to Ms. Maria Martinez, BFCU CEO, Mariana Zuniga and their staff and to Mr. Carlos Ayala of Silver Eagle Distributors for their outstanding support!
President Otila Gonzalez welcomed the sixty plus persons in attendance and introduced new member, former School Superintendent and former Mayor of the City of Del Rio, Bobby Fernandez, before the festivities began.
The attendees enjoyed a spread of finger foods and a variety of Valentine candy in a setting of red and white décor and lively background music. Door prizes were awarded and refreshments were plentiful.

gregorio arrambide - director of education
Mr. Gregorio Arrambide has been working with Gateway Apartments since 2013 as Property Manager. Mr. Arrambide has also been volunteering with the DRHA Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program for approximately 3 years as Site Coordinator and advanced Tax Preparer. Mr. Arrambide works diligently with the DRHA VITA Program and believes that Financial education is important. Not only by providing a free service which normally would cost a tax payer $150-$300 but also to save their refunds to earn interest in saving accounts or to start a IRA through the IRS program of myRA. Educating people through VITA plays an intricate roll in providing options to families who are low to moderate income base. Mr. Arrambide quotes “The best thing about helping others is that it costs nothing.”
