Wild Women Dish It Out
Wednesday, May 29, 2013 • Posted May 29, 2013

Wild Women Weekend was able to distribute a total of $28,000 earned during the Wild Woman Weekend last April to members of the Blanco Non-Profit Coalition. On Wednesday, May 22, Linda Nash and Cyndy Granberg gave each organization a check for $7000. Thank you to all of the volunteers and the Blanco community for making this first-time event such an outstanding success.

Rhonda Norville, president, and Candy Cargill Wenzel, treasurer, accepted the check for Blanco Library, Inc., and they said the money would be used for maintenance items such as carpeting and painting. Marilyn Lageman, president of Friends of the Blanco State Park, accepted her check, and she thought the money would be used to support the recent LCPA grant the park received to develop visitor attractions such as nature-scapes and an activity center for children. Alan Cooper, Board vice-president, accepted his check for Gem of the Hills Senior Community Center, and he knew right away their money would be used for new air conditioning and gym equipment. Andree Barnes, Board member, and Lesley Griffon, Courthouse manager, accepted the check on behalf of the Old Blanco County Courthouse Preservation Society, and they said they have not decided how to spend their gift. These non-profit organizations work hard to support and enhance the Blanco community.

Wild Woman Weekend has started planning for their second, ultimate gal-pal road event to be held the first weekend of April 2014. With such a fantastic beginning and with Blanco women working tirelessly for their community, the expectations are high they will be able to achieve even more the second time around. Mark your calendars and come join the fun. Ladies if you would like to help this action packed weekend achieve even greater heights contact Connie Barron at or Bette Vest at, and they will be glad to put your talents to work for the benefit of the Blanco Non-Profit Coalition.
