DRHCC Carmen Gutierrez and Connie Mendoza also participated in promoting small business member interests and sharing tourism information at the recent Judge Roy Bean Historical Fair at Langtry, Texas. It was fun and enjoyable to share information about our local business and tourist attractions with the Travel Center visitors; many who were passing through Langtry or who drove in from surrounding areas. The TxDOT Travel Center under the direction of Miguel Zuniga is open year round.
Bringing new business investment to our community is also important to DRHCC. DRHCC Chair Carmen Gutierrez participated in the Mexican Consulate’s “taller” or Spanish workshop on How to Open a Business in the United States. As one of five guest speakers to an audience of Mexican Businessmen and Businesswomen investors, Carmen’s topic was on utilizing various resources in Positioning your Business in the Marketplace.
Mexican Consul Ricardo Santana coordinated in a continuing effort to strengthen economic growth and ties between Del Rio and Acuña. Vice Consul Briseño was on hand to oversee the event held at BBVA Compass Bank in Del Rio.
DRHCC joined the nation and many Veterans organizations and friends, in the City of Del Rio’s Memorial Day Ceremony. Retired Major General Gerald Prather served as emcee while Disabled Vet Commander Bobby Barrera spoke on behalf of those servicemen and service women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Robert Wade’s rendition of Proud to Be an American brought a wave of emotion from the crowd. Mayor Pro-temp Reno Luna and County Judge Laura Allen also spoke in recognition honoring the fallen heroes.
