Saint Nikolaus was a 4th century bishop who was known for his good deeds.  The most famous story tells of how he secretly helped a poor man and his three daughters.  Nikolaus was too modest to help in public, and wanted to save the man from any possible humiliation.  Under the cover of night, Nikolaus climbed onto the roof and dropped three pieces of gold down the chimney.  The story goes that the gold fell into three shoes which were upon the hearth.  Another story says that the gold fell into stockings hung on the mantle to dry. In Germany, St. Nikolaus Day is celebrated on December 6th, Nikolaus' reputed birthday.  Many children put a Nikolaus-Stiefel (Nikolaus boot) outside of the front door on the night of December 5th. St. Nikolaus fills the boot with sweets and gifts if the children were good and helpful all year.  If they were not, they will have a Rute (tree branch) instead!

WILD BACON on the hoof! Here's a beautiful bluebonnet photo that was shared by Joe and Barbara, from their visit to the Willow City Loop! But what's that snuffling around in the bluebonnets... it's a feral HOG! Be careful... they can be aggressive, especially when there's a group of them! Texas has a rapidly growing feral hog population which is causing significant problems around the state! You can HELP! Eat WILD Pig! It's DELICIOUS!

Arts Education Must Be Saved!

 Art, Music, Dance, and Drama can Drive Academic Achievement and are Key to Student Development.
"Years of research shows that Art Education provides almost everything,  that we as a nation, say we want for our children and demand from our schools: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity. Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork". - Fran Smith, Edutopia

Introduce your children to LIVE DRAMA!
Support the Future of the theatrical ARTS!

Community theater brings future actors, directors, playwrights, designers, critics, stage managers, audiences and patrons together to ensure the survival of the LIVE THEATER! The production of a theatrical performance requires TEAM WORK, DISCIPLINE, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and HARD WORK! Introduce your children to LIVE DRAMA! Support the theatrical ARTS!
