Please join The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Heather Quebodeaux of Sabine Federal Credit Union, on receiving the Employee of the Month Award for August 2015. Heather was presented her award, sponsored by Sabine River Ford, by chamber ambassador Wanda McGraw at the August Networking Coffee hosted by Sabine Federal Credit Union. Heather received gifts from the following businesses: Total Impressions Salon, Dupuis Tire, The Record Newspaper, Tiger Rock Martial Arts, Michele Michelle Salon & Spa, Dairy Queen, Sabine Federal Credit Union, Mary Kelone, LMT NCBTMT, The Classy Peacock and Complete Staffing.
Heather is from Little Cypress where she lives with her husband and two sons, Colby who attends LIT and Bay who is a senior at LCM. She has worked in the accounting department at Sabine FCU for four years. Heather said, “I have always had the mindset that you treat people the way you would like to be treated in the public. It’s a choice to put a smile on your face every day, to be polite and grateful for your job and your co-workers because you spend more time with them than you do with your own family. I am very much a people person and enjoy my job very much.”
The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the upcoming re-opening of the historic Cow Bayou Swing Bridge. Mayor Kirk Roccaforte cut the ribbon marking the momentous occasion with over 100 in attendance. Attendees were delighted to be allowed to stand on the bridge during an operational demonstration immediately following the ribbon cutting. According to TXDOT officials, the bridge will re-open for traffic within the next week.
This TXDOT project lasted nearly two years at a cost of $2.55 million. The bridge’s refurbishment included restoring the controls and adding a wheelhouse for opening and closing. Mark Dunn, who was instrumental in getting this project underway said, ‘What a lot people don’t recognize about the Cow Bayou Swing Bridge is that it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places issued by the National Parks Service in Washington, D.C….and a registered Texas Historic Landmark by the Texas Historic Commissions. Only the Stark Home and a couple of other locations in Orange County has that distinction.”
