A Word about Recycling — June 7

But first we want to thank all the volunteers who came from out-of-state to help with the flood recovery. At lunch, met three Red Cross workers, one from California, one from Tennessee, and one from Oregon. They reported they had met workers from all over the country. Wonderful to see how in the time of need, concerned citizens  from all over join in to help.

Central TX Ballet Conservatory students accepted into prestigious summer programs

Students at the Central Texas Ballet Conservatory have been accepted, through national and international auditions, to many of the best ballet summer intensive programs in the nation. Several students received rare, prestigious merit scholarships after auditioning.
Most grade school students look forward to the summer break as a time to relax, socialize and catch up on sleep. Instead, students at the Central Texas Ballet Conservatory (CTBC) will instead rise before dawn this summer and dance all day for four to seven weeks at top ballet intensive programs all over the country.
