September Meeting of the CCO
On Monday, September 24, the CCO had a program on the Coupland School presented by Superintendent Tammy Brinkman and Language Arts Teacher Kathy Hill. They provided many interesting insights on the school and the students. We also welcomed Carlos Salinas, candidate for County Commissioner Pct. 4, and his wife Vicki.
General Meetings of the Civic Organization are open to the public and are held on the last Monday of each month, except for Monday holidays.
National Night Out
National Night Out was on August 7 at the Depot and was possibly the best attended so far. Several candidates for political offices attended and we had presentations by Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Kreidel and Jared Cummings, Chief of the Coupland Volunteer Fire Department.
The Coupland Civic Organization hosted a hot dog supper with all the trimmings plus homemade cookies.
Annual Golf Tournament
The CCO held its first-ever, first annual golf tournament on May 19, 2018, at beautiful Mustang Creek Golf Course in Taylor. It was a successful fundraiser and the proceeds will be used toward maintaining our historic Coupland Depot and restoring the caboose. Thanks to board member Jonathan Jones for organizing the tournament. Things went well for a first-time endeavor, and planning has already started for next year’s tournament set for May 18, 2019. Here are a few images from the event:
