Tribute to Rose Free Dance
Church Picnic Alert: Weimar
The effervescence that was Vlasta "Rose" Bubenik-Wilshire ceased bubbling the first week of July 2018. "Rose" as she was known to the music world of Central Texas finally lost her long battle with cancer with dignity and grace and went to heaven to bring joy to those who preceded her. A tribute dance will be held from 2-6 pm, Sun., Aug. 12 at Taiton Community Center, with music by Texas Legacy Czech Band and Mark Halata & Texavia. Free admission. Donations will be accepted for the Cancer Research Institute. Silent auction. Bring desserts already sliced and ready to serve. Read more of Gary E. McKee's great article on Rose that appeared in the August issue of Texas Polka News.
