Artists to swap items they no longer need

The San Marcos Art League invites artists to take advantage of spring cleaning to clear out art and craft supplies they no longer need to swap them for something new.
The Art Supply Swap will take place this Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon inside the Hays County Courthouse during the Art Squared Art Market.
• Organizers said items must be in good shape and from a smoke-free environment.
• Small items need to be placed in Ziploc bags or small containers.
• Artists should only bring items they are ready to part with to minimize their collection of supplies.

VFW donates school supplies

Every August donations are given to schools for underprivileged children.
As these donations are used throughout the year, teachers usually pay out of pocket to fill in the gap of school supplies.
The Maurice T. Suttles VFW Post 3413 recognized this mid-end of year need and donated school supplies to Mendez Elementary School on Friday, April 1.
Educator Adam Voglewede accepted the supplies for the school and some for his literacy lab. He is also able to use some of the supplies in his art class.
The school year is almost over, but there is still a lot to learn.

Bisexual father is hesitant to reveal identity to sons

DEAR ABBY: I am a single father of teenage boys. I have always played an active role in my children’s lives, physically, emotionally and financially. My older son lives with me; my younger sons live with their mother.

KnD’s Resale N More hosted Root Cellar beer last Friday night during the Brew Hop. If you are looking for upscale pre-owned clothing, Della Lucio and her daughter, Kristan Alvarez, are who you need to visit at their boutique located on North LBJ Drive.

Seamus Dauter and Martha Ash were all smiles after a taste of Seguin Brewing Co., beer that was poured for them by Adam Kinyicky from Seguin. The Seguin brew was being poured at Junk in the Truck located on LBJ Street during the Brew Hop that took place Friday night in downtown San Marcos.

The Stellar Cafe was hopping but still found time to pass out beer samples. Danielle Garcia is shown serving Michael and Yvonne Richards on Friday night during the Brew Hop that is the latest addition to Swing on the Square in downtown San Marcos.

KurtMen on LBJ Drive was a wonderfully surprising stop during Friday’s Brew Hop. Kristy Kurtz, right, opened her store Dec. 15 after wholesaling her handbags, belts and accessories. KurtMen products are sold throughout the U.S. and Canada, but KurtMen decided they wanted a shop close to home and chose San Marcos. Kristy chose the name, KurtMen, because it combined her and her husband’s last names, Kurtz and Mendoza. Left, Franklin Murrah represents Middleton Brewing.

Good times at Brew Hop
