    The Nueces County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse Cooked a Campfire Breakfast for Mirador Residents

    Residents and staff of Mirador senior living community were recently treated to a cowboy breakfast of campfire biscuits and coffee by the Nueces County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse. Residents were able to meet the horses and their owners, see a working original chuck wagon, learn the history of the Posse and hear about all they do in the community.

    “The event made for one of the most fun breakfasts we’ve ever had here at Mirador,” said Jenny Sullivan, activities director at Mirador. “Seeing the chuck wagon and the horses was such a treat. The Nueces County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse is such a great organization that does so much for our community. It was fun to learn more about them while enjoying a cowboy breakfast.”

    The Nueces County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse is a law enforcement volunteer group that does mounted patrol, search and rescue, community events, parades and benefits. They have participated in police memorial services, host Cowboy Posse events around the area and provided patrol on the 4th of July as well as at other community events.
