Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Heroes,
What a fantastic example of love and community we have all experienced after Hurricane Harvey. Throughout the last year we all have grieved the loss and devastation Harvey has caused, but our community is growing stronger afterwards because of all of you. This is first and foremost our gracious thank you to each and every one of you for the support that we have received. Each of you were our heroes after Harvey. It is because of your support that every one of our Fulton Volunteer Fire Department members has been able to safely return to their families after the hurricane and after every tragedy that we have responded to since.
Our 100% volunteer department is funded primarily through your support during Oysterfest, and what a fun event that was this year. The second major fund raiser that helps to ensure your Fulton Volunteer Fire Department is capable of providing the community with prompt and safe Emergency Response is this letter drive.
This year we will be using your generous donations to help the fund the following safety and rescue
- 2 New Thermal Imaging cameras $16,000
- 4 new Self Contained Breathing Apparatus $28,000
- 7 New VHF Mobile P25 radios for apparatus $28,800
- 1 Mobile 800MHZ lnterop Repeater for Communications Trailer $8,300.00
- Capital Savings for new scheduled Engine Replacement in next 3 years
As always, we appreciate all donations and want to thank you for your continued support. We risk what we do because we are all proud of what this community had been for decades and are excited to continue protecting our recovering and evolving home.
If you are interested in contributing your time to our community by joining our fire department family, please attend any of our weekly Thursday meetings at 7:30.
Rickey McLester, Fire Chief
And the members of the Fulton Volunteer Fire Department

T. Kaye broke into the music business in Corpus Christi in the 90’s and has been the female force in front of high energy live shows with her own band ever since. T. Kaye recorded her debut album in Nashville in 2002. The title cut, Texas Weather, received some regional airplay, as well as strong international exposure, charting in 19 countries from The Netherlands to Australia. Texas Weather held #1 on the Belgium Country Music charts for 14 weeks. The success of Texas Weather launched T. Kaye onto the international stage where she has headlined several concert tours in Skandinavia and Europe. T. Kaye welcomed the opportunity in 2007 to record some great traditional country material for the overseas market. The project is titled One Bridge Left To Burn and did very well internationally.
Now a resident of Bulverde, Texas, T. Kaye has been performing regularly at shows all over the San Antonio area as well as in Central and South Texas. The high energy group has entertained at many fairs and festivals, including the Houston Rodeo kickoff Bar-B-Que, Fulton Oyster Fest, Cancer relay Walk For Life, Freer Rattlesnake Roundup, Rockport Harbor Lights, Aransas Pass Shrimporee, Cuero Turkey Fest, and Yoakum Land Of Leather Fest to name a few. T. Kaye has opened shows for Lee Ann Womack, Johnny Rodriguez, Frenchie Burke, Darrell McCall, Ricky Skaggs, Scott Wiggins, Honey Browne and Aaron Watson.
The Sweetfire band radiates a spirit and energy on stage that compliments T. Kaye’s brand of hard drivin’ country music.
This collaborative effort has truly been a journey of heart and soul for all of the members. ” Our music comes from the heart…and we put our souls into every performance.” Each member brings a specialty and personality all their own to this project. The dynamic end result is ………..
T. Kaye and Sweetfire…………Fire’d Up Country Music……………..Texas Style!
A Native Texan born in Amarillo with his childhood home in Aransas Pass, Darrin’s passion for traditional country music started at an early age while listening to his father, Gene, sing tunes by Roger Miller and Buck Owens. Darrin started playing guitar at the age of 8 and started his first band at 14. Fate took him to Alaska where he played clubs on the weekends and began to learn the music business. Moving back to Texas in 1976, he started the Make Mine Country Band, with his dad on bass, while his popularity as a hardcore country singer grew across South Texas. One of his proudest career contributions was donating his band to play the very first Fulton Oysterfest in 1979.
Darrin started his solo career in 1980 and was the headliner at the legendary Western Palms in Corpus Christi for 3 years. Darrin recorded”/ wish I had the Job Paycheck told them all to shove” and “Pretty Papers” both received regional airplay and he soon became the premier opening act in South Texas for country super-stars like Merle Haggard, Gene Watson, Conway Twitty, Ricky Skaggs, Vern Gosdin, and Barbara Mandrell.
In 2011, Darrin, his brother Cash, and Gene recorded their CD “That Brown Charm” at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Recording Studio in Spicewood, TX. The CD covers great traditional country songs, a touch of southern rock as well as originals songs written by Darrin and Gene. Country Legend Johnny Bush said “That is one of the best country CD’s I have heard in years”.
In 2014, Darrin was honored with an induction into the Texas Country Music Association Hall of Fame.
