TACO Community Helps Rebuild After Severe Flooding

Posted on: June 16th, 2015 by admin No Comments


With the recent devastation of flooding ripping through Texas, many communities, churches and organizations have come forward to help those in need as the sun begins to shine on this tragedy.

sunsetThis week’s interview on the Lonestar Sportsman features David Rowley from Pecan Park Riverside RV and Cabins, one of the many places damaged by severe flash flooding. You can listen to the interview below, or visit the SoundCloud channel.

David speaks of the challenges faced during this traumatic experience. During the month of May, Texas saw record-breaking water levels, and the San Marcos River quickly flooded. Thankfully, Pecan Park owners and residents had a few hours to grab their belongings and evacuate the park. But when they returned, they returned to irreversible damage and flooding. Five cabins were damaged and the owners’ home was flooded with eight feet of water.

Though Pecan Park is still open for business, they are in the rebuilding stage, and have seen something truly amazing. Because TACO parks are outstanding with incredible customer service and satisfaction, Pecan Park has created a community of supporters. Many people have stepped forward to volunteer time and money to put toward rebuilding the campground.

Pecan Park is truly a gem of an RV Park near the San Marcos River, providing a peaceful and fun-filled destination perfect for families and children. Faithful TACO customers like you make miracles like this happen, and we couldn’t be more thankful. To learn more about Pecan Park, stop by their website.
