Stay cool, La Vernia!

Stay cool, La Vernia!
NANNETTE KILBEY-SMITH A crew from Vortex Aquatic Structures International works into the evening hours June 12 to install a splash pad in the La Vernia City Park. According to a crew member, concrete may be poured June 15, and appliance installation may take place this weekend.

Hello, La Vernia!

I’d like to start this edition with how honored City Council, staff, and myself were at the last city council meeting to be in the presence of many Purple Heart recipients as La Vernia, by proclamation, became a Purple Heart City. La Vernia will forever recognize members of the U.S. military who were wounded or gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we live under. The Purple Heart is the military’s oldest Medal of Honor, started by George Washington, and it is the ultimate honor. The La Vernia area has several Purple Heart recipients and you will see signs going up at City Hall, in the city park, and on Hwy. 87 with the Purple Heart emblem.

Thank you to all the Purple Heart recipients and those active duty and retired military personnel for your service to our country!

It’s summertime, folks, and the splash pad in the park will be finished very soon and ready for young and old to cool off! Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the official opening date. I can’t wait!!

This is the time of year that folks go on vacation so now more than ever, be watchful of unusual vehicles driving through your neighborhoods and report any suspicious activity to the La Vernia PD or Wilson County Sheriff’s Office. Remember that you can let our police department know of your summertime plans so that they can keep an eye on your home!

Stay cool out there and enjoy Summer 2017!!

If you have any questions about what I mentioned here or anything else going on in our city, you can reach me at City Hall at 830-779-4541. If you would like to drop me an email, you can do so at

Till next month, God bless La Vernia!
