DEL RIO-Del Rio Days topped the agenda at the annual meeting of the Del Rio Community Association on Sunday, November 18. Despite foul weather throughout the festival weekend, the event was a financial success, according to Jeff Revolinski, DRCA Treasurer. Net proceeds came to over $3000, less than Del Rio Days 2011, which enjoyed perfect seasonal weather. This year, Saturday of the festival was cool, damp, and overcast; Sunday had rain throughout the afternoon.
The income from the event will be dedicated to replacing the roofing on the Del Rio Fire Hall and Community Center. Estimated expenses and materials for the project were discussed at the meeting; a special committee, to be chaired by Tammy Haney, was formed to seek grants and to plan fundraisers.
Leslie Gibbens, Del Rio Library Director, reported that AT&T technicians have been installing equipment to provide high-speed internet service for the library, fire department, and community center. A Holston Regional Library IT Specialist will be completing the installation soon, and a formal announcement of the availability of wireless broadband is planned for later in the month.
