    I’m sorry to announce that due to the low volume of entries, we have to cancel the 3on3 Basketball Tournament at Comal Park scheduled for Saturday, October 26th. We hope to attempt it again in the Spring. In the meantime, if you’re interested in some pick-up games please let me know, we do have a few teams interested in getting together.

    2011 East Cesar Chavez Holiday Party!

    Another great holiday party has come and gone. It was encouraging
    to see so many new people share in the holiday cheer. We had residents,
    business owners, elected officials and other dignitaries joining in on the fun. Our
    unofficial count was about 110 guests. This would not have been possible if not
    for the generous donations from the businesses below. Please remember them in
    2012 when you are choosing where to spend your dollars. May you enjoy a
    prosperous new year!
