Among the audience enjoying a dinner of Prime Rib and Grilled Chicken Breast with all the trimmings at the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association’s annual Christmas Party were two companies—one a Builder member and the other an Associate member—who were singled out for their loyal and generous support of the RGVBA during its year-long activities and awarded the 2018 Builder of the Year Award and the Association Member of the Year Award.

(L-R): Jay and Jorge Gonzalez, builders/co-owners of Dream Homes, received the 2018 Builder of the Year Award by the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association during its annual Christmas Party.

Dream Homes by J&J, located in Weslaco, Texas, is owned and operated by two brothers, Jay and Jorge Gonzalez. The company has been a long-time member of the RGVBA and is a loyal participant in the organization’s annual Parade of Homes fundraiser.

Jay and Jorge Gonzalez are active members who consistently support the Association’s many activities including other annual events like the fishing tournament and the organization’s Bar-B-Que. They have contributed greatly to the day-to-day operations of the Association, and after many years as members without recognition, are truly worthy of this award.

2018 Associate Member of the Year Award: EPP Marketing, LLC.

Francisco (Paco) Vielma received the 2018 Lester Miles Associate Member of the Year Award, the highest honor that the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association can bestow on an Associate member.

EPP Marketing, owned by Francisco (Paco) Vielma, was this year’s recipient of the 2018 Associate Member of the Year Award renamed posthumously as the “Lester Miles Associate Member of the Year Award” in honor of Lester Miles, an Associate member who exemplified the ideal Associate member thanks to his selfless generosity and kind attentiveness to the needs of the Association.

Paco Vielma has volunteered many hours of his time to help the Association with hardware and software issues. He maintains the organization’s website and is always willing and ready to provide the support that the Association requires to keep its computer system operating smoothly. In addition to his IT support, Paco Vielma is a key volunteer for the Association’s annual Parade of Homes, as well as each and every other fundraiser held by the Association over the year. His technological and marketing skills play a very important role in the success of the Association’s fundraisers. Because the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association does not have a staff to help with its day-to-day operations, it relies on its Associate members to provide much-needed volunteer support. Paco Vielma has been an outstanding source of support throughout the year and well deserving of this award—the highest recognition given to an Associate member by the RGVBA.

 

To become a member of the RGVBA, call Marcy Alamia
