Breast Cancer, Bulldogs & Bad…Cars” All In One Weekend Of Heart & Soles”


Texas City took full advantage of the slight cool breezes that began our mornings this weekend. Hinting of cooler weather to come, the breezes were enough to energize the city to get up and get going; even though the cool was not lasting. Saturday morning early, Moms and Dads, kids and pups, came together in solidarity against Breast Cancer. Ladies in pink tutus, vendors selling dramatic jewelry and homemade quilts, plus a group leading warmup workouts before the Walk, made for a high energy, celebratory occasion. The highlight of the morning was when Ashley Rivera, a cancer survivor, walked up to the podium and shared a little of her story from diagnosis to cancer free. As her husband, Bryan Rivera and their three beautiful children looked on, Ashley spoke about the fear and the joy inherent in the journey and the importance of staying active and positive.
Texas City’s Finest were represented by both the Explorer Program and Citizens on Patrol plus TCPD’s newest venture, The Bike Patrol which rode alongside the Kid Run participants to ensure their safety.
  Sunday was the All In One Car Show and apparently there was a Bulldog parade (they were everywhere) along with all the amazing cars to be seen. The Doyle Center was packed with people … and Bulldogs … and vendors ranging from Bulletproof Mustangs making gorgeous vinyl stickers for the crowd, to The Cupcake Lady, selling cupcakes topped with everything from bacon to bananas! Our own Doc Amey was on hand sharing his story of transformation through Jesus Christ and as the music, provided by Alfaro Motors, thumped out across the yards, incredible cars transformed into works of art were on display.
Earlier in the week, TCPD celebrated National Night Out. An annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, seeks to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
