Helotes Appreciation BBQ Cook-Off and Picnic

August 15, 2018.

The inaugural City of Helotes Appreciation BBQ Cook-Off and Employee Picnic was a success! The event was held Saturday, June 23, 2018 at the Helotes 4H Building. Staff had the opportunity to form teams and compete in a three-meat cook off. Winners received ribbons and specialty trophies crafted by Simply Yours Gifts & More, a local shop located in Old Town Helotes.
Attendees were entertained by the classic crooning vocals of TJ Dolotina and all were treated to amazing door prizes. The purpose of the picnic was to show appreciation for our Helotes first responders and City staff, including volunteers, who work each day on behalf of our community.
