Mark your calendars for several fun events in December hosted by Blanco Verde!
•December 10, 6:00pm: Book Club discussion at Redbud Cafe
•December 13, 5-9:00pm: Community Potluck at Old Blanco County Courthouse
•December 14, 3:30-5:00pm: Eco-Club at the Blanco Library
All of these events will take place each month in or around the Blanco area. Blanco Verde’s mission to provide community events grew out of a desire to create sustainability in our community and cultivate fellowship with our Blanco neighbors.
Ramon Ellington, an environmental scientist from Dripping Springs who specializes in issues of the Hill Country, will lead a discussion of The Diversity of Life at this month’s Blanco Verde Book Club gathering. Mr. Ellington stresses the importance that biodiversity plays in maintaining the balance of nature and a man-made environment. The Blanco Verde Book Club meets every second Thursday.
Blanco Verde, in cooperation with The Old Blanco County Courthouse Preservation Society, cordially invites everyone to this month’s Potluck Supper.
The OBCCPS and Blanco Verde share the goal of providing opportunities to enhance community camaraderie.
Bring a dish to share and a musical instrument and come celebrate the season with your neighbors. Who knows—we might even sing a few Christmas carols!
Designed for children (ages 5 and up) and adults alike, Blanco Verde’s Eco-Club features environmental lessons through arts and crafts, cooking, or science experiments. Eco-Club will be held the second Monday of each month at the Blanco Library.
Facilitators Maggie Goodman and Margaret Boswell will demonstrate, at this month’s meeting, how to weave a rug with plastic grocery bags.
The event is free to all, but bring plastic grocery bags. The more colors you have, the prettier the rug will be.
For questions about any of these programs, please call Maggie at 833-0245 or go to Blanco Verde’s website www.blancoverde.org. Blanco Verde is interested in what the community thinks.
