Staff Writer The Dublin Bottling Works birthday celebration is just around the corner and with it comes the annual Dublin reunion. The reunion, now in its 27th year, is a large affair. The event is billed as the place for anyone who has ever lived in Dublin or just wishes they had. The reunion will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Dublin High School cafeteria with a barbecue lunch served by the Historical Society from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. However, the reunion wasn’t always an indoors event. Few still remember that the event was born alongside the Historical Park tabernacle in the Texas Sesquicentennial Celebration in 1986. Dublin native Betty Culpepper spear-headed Dublin’s campaign to join the statewide project. Culpepper had always been historically-minded and inquisitive so it was only natural that she would be a founding member of the Lion Pride Historical Museum and even more natural that she would go to the state capitol to learn the ins and outs of the business from those who would know. The connections she made there spurred her involvement in Texas’ 150th birthday.

“I got a call from a friend in Austin who said, ‘Betty, you haven’t sent in your form for the Sesquicentennial yet,” she related. Culpepper found out that the forms had been sent to the city and absent-mindedly thrown away so she was sent another form- which had to be received in Austin three days later. To get Dublin involved, she had to organize a committee and develop a program which adhered to the 1986 Sesquicentennial Commission’s guidelines. Somehow she managed to get the paperwork back in three days of little sleep and lots of phone calls. On November 30, the state committee reviewed the documents and officially sanctioned Dublin as the site of Erath’s Sesquicentennial memorial. The committee she organized as chairperson included many local men and women representing various organizations around Dublin from clubs to churches to the historical society and all of them were unified in the outlined plan which was sent to the capitol. In the plan, the Dublin Committee vowed to build a tabernacle on the site of Robbins Mill and W.M. Wright Memorial Park grounds in honor of the day, to write a local history for present and future generations to read and observe, to promote citywide participation and to develop a permanent Sesquicentennial project unique to Dublin. Senior citizens were also called on for a special project and beautification work was planned as well. Finally, the committee set up provisions for an old settler’s reunion called

“Pioneer Days” in honor of the celebration. “The rules called for one ongoing project which would carry over into future years,” Culpepper explained. “That was the Pioneer Day Reunion which was later just called the Dublin reunion.” She put Betty Hightower in charge of the program which was set around the mill and historical park and featured a lunch prepared by the historical society. Although not quite as big as recent years, Culpepper remembers a big turnout for the inaugural event. “It seem like we had 600 or 700 registered,” she reported. The event was such a success that the bottling company’s birthday which

was then set for the first Saturday in June moved to the second weekend to coincide with the reunion. Since then, Hightower got Mary Yantis involved in the project and they ran it together for many years. Three years ago, the event was finally handed off though and now, the Dublin National Bank is the corporate sponsor for the annual local meeting. Although it has become larger and the origin is not widely known, the annual reunion is still dominated by the spirit of Texas hospitality and small-town camaraderie. So take a break from the other June 8 festivities at the high school and be greeted by a sea of Texas smiles.

Tour dePepper returns Saturday By PAUL GAUDETTE Staff Writer The return of the Dublin Bottling Works birthday celebration Saturday, June 8 also gets the wheels turning for the annual Tour dePepper bicycle ride. The event sponsored by

Celebrate Dublin Bottling Works 122nd Birthday by competing in the

10-5-2K Irish Stampede

Kids Across Cultures and Dr Pepper has grown a lot in its scant five years of existence with ride organizers reporting over 500 riders from all over the country and even New Zealand participating last year. All proceeds from the event go to Kids Across Cultures’ mission work. While these riders got to participate in scenic rides around the Dublin area: hungry kids in Africa and Mexico got to eat, trafficked children in South East Asia got the chance for education and susceptible kids in Zanzibar were able to sleep without fear of malaria thanks to mosquito nets. Three courses are available in well-tested and received 9-mile, 34-mile and 64-mile courses so the Tour dePepper has something for everyone whether you want a small trip or a bigger test of your endurance. Regular rest stops will be set up offering free water and Imperial Cane Sugar Dr Pepper to all riders. This all comes with the chance for the top men and women finishers in every course to win bragging rights and prizes - the Dr Pepper bottle cap award and Imperial Cane Sugar Dr Pepper. The top three finishers under the age of 18 will also get commemorative bottle cap

awards and a case of Dr Pepper bottles. Early registration for the ride closes at midnight on June 6. However, riders can still register for $40 from 6:30- 8 p.m. on Friday, June 7 and from 6:30 a.m.-7:45 a.m. on June 8 at the Dublin High School. Packets can also be picked up during these

times. At 8 a.m., the ride will begin with a briefly staggered start. After all riders finish, the awards ceremony will be held at the downtown staging area near the finish line. For more information or to register, visit www. tourdepepper.com.

across the street from the plant. A highlight of the event is always the huge sand sculpture created by Jon Woodworth of Leander. This year’s sculpture marks a salute to recycling because the artist will create a new work of art from the 30 tons that still stands from last year’s creation when the original seven New Kids were introduced. The awardwinning professional sand sculpture refers to his work as “granulized engineering.” Free entertainment on the Celebration Park stage will be highlighted by the music of perennial favorite Layne Golden and his band. The official cutting of the special Dublin Bottling Works cake will be at noon. The flavor of this year’s big cake will be the new Dublin Black Cherry created by Debbie Moerman of Debbie’s Specialties. The Dublin Lions Club’s annual race, this year named the 10-5-2 Irish Stampede, will begin at 7:30 a.m. from S. Grafton at E. Elm, adjacent to Celebration Park. The race benefits local and area Lions Club projects. Registration is available online at www. dublintxlions.com. The Tour dePepper bike race will begin at Dublin High School at 8 a.m. The event benefits Kids Across Cultures. Registration is available online at www. tourdepepper.com. The popular Alley Fest arts and crafts show and sale will be open Friday evening from 5 p.m. until dark and continue all day Saturday in Hogan’s Alley across from the bottling plant. Booth reservations are still being accepted. For more information, contact Laura Gambino at 254-4850997. The community’s other museums – The Ben Hogan Museum, the Dublin Historical Museum, and the Dublin Rodeo Heritage Museum – will be open all day for free tours.

TREAT - One of the major highlights of every year’s Dublin Bottling Works birthday celebration is the cutting by DBW owners of a birthday cake made with sodas produced in Dublin, giving it a distinct hometown taste. The cake is free to all party guests and while it is huge, it does go fast. Be sure to be present at Celebration Park next to Old Doc’s at noon on Saturday, June 8.

Ronny’s Tire Service wishes everyone a great weekend in Dublin for the big Celebration.

The history of Bill Kloster and Dublin Bottling Works By KAREN WRIGHT Bill Kloster never studied marketing. The words goals, objectives, strategies and tactics weren't part of his vocabulary. He didn't promote his product from a textbook; he promoted it from his heart - a concept that would have left marketing gurus cringing. Except that it worked. Bill Kloster operated on

instinct that was so on target that his tiny threecounty Dublin Dr Pepper franchise was continuously among the top 10 producers in per capita consumption. Bill knew his business. He started at the bottling plant when he was 14 years old a job necessitated by the death of his father and his need to help support his mother and four siblings. For the next 67 years,

including the day he died, he put in long, hands-on hours, focusing on quality control, community involvement and his own unique style of sometimes blustery, sometimes covert public relations. Bill started as a bottle sorter for 10 cents an hour. He got his first painful lesson in economics when he dropped a pallet of glass bottles. After the damages were deducted from his paycheck, he took home mere pennies - his first paycheck. Before long, plant owner Sam Houston Prim took the young man under his wing, becoming a surrogate father as he watched Bill grow into manhood and into a selfstyled promoter of Dublin Dr Pepper. From the bottle sorting chores, Bill worked his way up to production manager. After a tour of duty in Europe during World War II, he returned to become general manager of the plant which was then operated by Prim's daughter, Grace Prim Lyon. Mrs. Lyon died in 1991 on the dawn of the plant's 100th birthday celebration, leaving the Dublin plant in Bill's capable hands. As the owner, Bill continued to emphasize those same values he had learned as a young man. He held on to the original drink formula, the antiquated bottling equipment, and a massive assortment of Dr Pepper collectibles which became his passion. Through the years, he used those elements to develop a successful enterprise and a popular tourist attraction. And most important, he built a fiercely loyal following for Dublin Dr Pepper around the world. The media were drawn to him like bees to honey and dubbed him "Mr. Dr Pepper." When bottom line indicated the tiny Dublin plant should give up Imperial Pure Cane Sugar in exchange for less expensive corn sweeteners, Bill balked. He continued to subscribe to the country theory of "dancin' with who brung ya," refusing to change the recipe which has always given the local product its unique taste. Bill Kloster, the Dublin bottling plant, and Dublin Dr Pepper remained true to themselves. The story was widely told that when his wife Iona told Bill he was drinking too much sugar and should switch to the sugar-free variety, he secretly had the regular Dr Pepper put into diet bottles which he stocked in his home refrigerator. Residents of the community and the region enthusiastically supported what they considered "their" Dr Pepper. But Bill was no less enthusiastic about giving back. Seldom did a community event take place without Dr Pepper, usually

provided as a donation to a worthy cause. Most of the major projects in the area had a Dr Pepper signature somewhere, even though many of Bill's contributions were done inconspicuously and, by his choosing, without fanfare. Bill always spent long hours at the Dr Pepper plant. But following the death in 1995 of Iona Kloster, his beloved wife of 54 years, he dedicated himself to the expansion of the museum collection and the promotion of Old Doc's Soda Shop. The years took no apparent toll on Bill mentally, but he deeply resented the physical limitations caused by arthritis. He wore out the knees he came with, and several replacement knees as well. He rarely fussed about the pain, but he fussed often about the inconvenience, particularly when he had to take time out for surgery and rehabilitation. In the summer of 1999, he underwent his last knee surgery. As he began the therapy which would put him back on his feet, he suffered a severe heart attack, followed by several more. His doctors were not optimistic about his survival, much less his recovery. But miraculously, Bill survived and returned to work, leaping headlong into the development of the commemorative 2000 calendar. He wanted this millennium calendar to be a tribute to the four young ladies who had worn the title of Pretty Peggy Pepper, his favorite advertising icon. Bill died suddenly on Sept. 27, 1999 after a full day at the bottling plant where he had spent the day approving designs for this 2000 calendar. He is gone only in the physical sense; the echo

of his chuckle and the shadow of the wide grin that accompanied his favorite Dr Pepper stories will always be felt around Dublin Bottling Works. Bill Kloster was a man of conviction. When small bottlers have been gobbled

up by conglomerates, the tiny, independent Dublin plant remains. Bill wasn’t afraid of bucking marketing trends because he believed in the unique quality of his product. No, it wasn’t the textbook way of doing things.

For the last 39 years George Boutwell has been touring Texas showing his Art and looking for interesting things to paint. George got inspired with the diversity of Texas when he was Art Director of Texas Highway’s Magazine from 1966 to 1972. George has just published a book about his life and travels to over 2000 Art Shows titled “Texas in my Windshield” which features 182 Paintings and 192 pages of stories! In 1986 he got the Idea to produce a Texas Calendar featuring his art work and publish it himself. The calendar has become very popular because it changes themes every year and portrays a different aspect of the State of Texas. George’s calendar for 2012 features famous trees that all have a story from the days of the Republic of Texas and the Texas Revolution Era. He also produced a Classic Cafe’s of Texas Calendar for 2013. George grew up a “Redneck Kid in Texas in the 1950’s!” He became aware that much of the culture of the 1950’s was rapidly vanishing. Neon signs were being replaced by back lit plastic, businesses that reflected the personality of the owners were being replaced by ones that all looked alike and it all would soon be lost. George has embarked on a quest to chronicle this fading era that he had lived through, with the gas stations, drive inns, motels, dancehalls and the other icons of the disappearing culture. Every other year, George produces a calendar that has the vanishing 50’s culture theme and in the alternating years the theme is more scenic (as in this year’s Republic of Texas Tree Calendar) his 2011 Calendar had paintings of Classic Texas Motels with lots of Classic Cars. George has produced over 100 Paintings depicting the “Vanishing 1950’s Culture and will have prints of them available at his show. In 2005 George was chosen by the Texas State Legislature and the Texas Commission on the Arts to be the 2006 Texas State Artist in the Category of Two Dimensional Art! George will be showing his work at George Boutwell “2006 Official Texas State Artist “ Showing at Dublin

Ask any rodeo or cowboy enthusiast from years past, and they’ll be the first to tell you, “The World Championship Rodeo used to be headquartered and held each year in Dublin, Texas.” And many rodeo historians will tell you that Dublin’s history is actually the history of the development of the sport of rodeo today. Many of the practices used for the Rodeo in Dublin came to be part of the foundation of the sport of rodeo. But what does that mean for tourists attending the area today? The Rodeo Heritage Museum of Dublin, Texas, located at 118 W. Blackjack Street, is filled with memorabilia from the 1940s and 1950s cowboy days. That memorabilia includes not only information on local heroes and heroines, but also mementos and photos from Madison Square Garden, rodeos across the country, and famous icons such as Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and others.
