To the Editor,

I and the members of The Final Showdown Band just wanted to thank everyone for their support.

We had a sold-out crowd for the annual New Year’s Eve Dance at the Optimist Club, but everyone had a seat. It was a wonderful party.

Thanks to Neal White with the Waxahachie Daily Light and Ken Roberts with KBEC Radio for the publicity they gave us. We couldn’t do without you.

Also a big thanks to Jeff Frazier with Vintage Bank, Mark Singleton with Citizens National Bank of Texas for the cash donations. And thanks to the donations from Cotton Patch Café and Ryan’s Buffett Restaurant.

There were 50 prizes given, with amounts ranging from $12.50, $20 and the grand prize of $50. The excitement was always running high at each break when Dave started calling out names for the door prizes.

Again, thanks to the city for supporting a place where there is no alcohol drinks and it is close in so all our friends can get home safely.

With the good Lord’s help, we will see you next year and try for a bigger show. Thanks again.

Dave Eder

with The Final Showdown Band
