Plans are underway for an expanded scholarship program for those ageing out of the CPS system. Also, a full-blown drug prevention and awareness program is being set up to supplement our “Not Even Once” meth awareness programs at the county’s schools. This expanded program will include school classroom presentations and materials regarding various drugs and help for the children facing these threats and temptations.
Our two major fund-raising events for this year have been planned and scheduled:
The Western Heritage Roundup at Bowie, Texas will be held on the last weekend in September, the 28th and 29th. Full details are available at http://www.westernheritageroundup.com or at the Bowie Chamber website. Two ranch rodeos are planned for the two days, and a full array of western-themed events….chuck wagon cooking, Cowboy Christian Symposium, Trail Ride and Chuck wagon breakfast, bicycle race, kids tractor pull, western displays and vendors, etal.
The Plein Air Art Event in conjunction with famed artist Donna Howell-Sickles is planned for the weekend of October 26th, with southwest artists coming to Saint Jo, Texas for various painting displays and events. The event will feature a Gala night at an area ranch on Saturday night, October 26th, complete with band and charity auction of art and donated items.
