Story of The Dragonfly
HEART & SOUL
To breathe new life into two buildings (1909 and 1913) in downtown Wharton, TX.
The Dragonfly Cafe will offer a variety of comfort food as well as healthy fair for the lunch crowd. Nights and weekends will showcase tempting culinary delights artistically arranged to gain the approval of even the most stubborn critic.
A stage has been built to offer local talent an outlet to share their music in a wide variety of styles. Art and Photography Shows, Poetry Readings, Comedy Nights, Karaoke and other weekend events have been showcased here.
At the moment, the buildings are being used for Private Parties to those who enjoy that special touch of yesterday.
The kitchen stands silent awaiting funds to bring it back to life. Until then, these buildings are lending their charm and beauty for Private Parties (baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, communions, graduations, wedding receptions and so much more).
I strongly believe in the power of One. One is a mighty number. But sometimes, “One” needs a little help. Just as it takes a Village to Raise a Child, it takes caring people to invest in keeping the past alive. By helping the Dragonfly spread her wings, you will also be helping the entire Community. I believe in life, we are to give back, thus there are many who will benefit from the completion of the Dragonfly Cafe. Most definitely, downtown merchants… but also others both individually and as a group will be helped. Women’s Crisis, SPOT, Scholarship programs, and more will benefit as well.
My interest is in giving back to the Community, not solely in making money.
Why the name “Dragonfly”?
Because the dragonfly is born as a fish that swims in dark and murky water. After a time, the wings begin to grow and the Dragonfly crawls out of it’s shell and onto a leaf. The wings begin to open and soon the Dragonfly (as often called) becomes the Jewel of the Sky.
