Blanco State Park Climbs the Ranking in Live Positively Grant Competition
Wednesday, July 27, 2011 • Posted July 28, 2011

While the state park cookbook is currently at the printer’s, we as a community and as individuals have an opportunity to help our park in another way: We can push forward and win one of three grants for our Blanco State Park.

Coca-Cola’s Live Positively program is holding the “Vote for Your Park” contest and Blanco State Park is in the running for a grant. We were ranked at 105 as of last Friday, July 22, and, as of press time, are ranked 47.

With community involvement, we can do this! Go to, click “Vote for Your Park” on the bottom left, enter 78606 in the zip code box, click Go, and click the marker on the map.

The contest allows you to vote numerous times. We will also get extra points for uploading pictures; your pictures will be on the site for all to see. Pictures can be old ones from long ago, or go right on down to the park and take some today to upload.

The deadline is September 6, 2011. I know we can do this; come on, everyone, let’s make this happen for our community and our park.

Remember that you can still volunteer at the park, check out all the activities the park offers, and be sure to go buy one of the really cool t-shirts the park has for sale now. The cookbooks will be here soon.

Everything you do helps our park and, in turn, helps our community.
