The origination of the Floresville Opry began with a conversation between Viola Henke, Wilson County Historical Society Program Chairman, LaJuanna Newnam-Leus WCHS President, at the 90th birthday celebration of Mrs Robert (Novelle) Mills at the Floresville SPJST Hall. There was a classic country band providing good old time country music, the dance floor was full of mostly "silvered-hair", enjoying themselves to the Max! Viola and LaJuana commented, " We should do something like this as a WCHS benefit for seniors & others to enjoy". Therefore, the seed was planted; Viola took charge with excellent participation from WCHS members, friends and sponsors. Viola talked with Pat Fox, a long-time school friend who offered to arrange a house band. The first Floresville Opry was held November 3, 2011. Since then the Opry continues to get bigger and better each month. It has not only having good live Classic Country music to dance, but good ole 'boot scoothin' as well.
The Wilson County Historical Society "Floresville Opry" wishes to extend a thank you to the Opry House Band, singers, soundman, emcee, sponsors, caterer and fans attending the Opry to make it a success and memorable event. We also have some incredible members and friends that volunteer their services for each Opry. We are so appreciative of all the continued support from everyone to keep the "Classic Country Music" alive and most of all so the Wilson County Historical Society can preserve it's rich history and help the community.
