Petey Chalico Honored at Barbecue Benefit
On December 13, volunteers served up barbecue to help curb medical expenses for Petey Chalico, Blanco High School sophomore.
Chalico was injured during a JV football game, suffering a concussion that severed a major artery in his head in two places. Doctors were able to repair the artery, but Petey is having to relearn some motor skills that he lost as a result of the injury. Friends and family of the Chalicos came together on December 13 to support Petey on his road to recovery and also to help the family with the medical expenses. The event was deemed a success by all of those in attendance.
Donations are still being taken at Security State Bank in his name.
Christmas Toys for Children a Success
The Blanco Lions Club is pleased to give back to the community in any way they can. This year, the club was able to donate to both the Good Samaritan Center and the Christmas Toys for Children. Lions Club works hard all year long to make money to then be able to give back to our community. Volunteers and new members are always welcome. Please be sure to drop your cans in our can bins, because that is one of our biggest projects. All cans are appreciated!
Come to our next meeting so that you can get to know your local Lions Club and help us better serve you.
The Blanco High School Student Council and Leo Club gathered gifts and worked at the Blanco Methodist Church to help hand out toys to families in need at the Sixteenth Annual Christmas Toys for Children. The toy drive and subsequent giveaway was such a huge success.
Everyone who volunteered or donated is greatly appreciated and we are already planning next year’s drive. There were plenty of toys and volunteers.
