Fredericksburg Texas Homes Alive with Sparkle of Small Town

For residents of Texas Hill Country homes, the Fredericksburg Standard—Radio Post Newspaper congeals the unabated sparkle of the marvelous small-town America quality of life we enjoy.  Just this week, a series of news posts cannot help buy endear anyone who is pondering relocation to Fredericksburg TX real estate or nearby Texas ranches.

Deliver right to the front door or computer of subscriber homes, the trusty Fredericksburg newspaper combines three historic papers—The Fredericksburg Standard, the Radio Post and the Harper Herald—to connect our communities and activities.

This week, we read about children from Fredericksburg and Harper schools who will be participating in the University Scholastic League Region XI Marching Contest in Hondo TX.  Anyone who missed the contest can experience these talented ensembles during halftime at varsity football games.

Another story highlights the youth Gold Star winners in 4-H who exemplify leadership, citizenship, community service, and excellent 4-H projects.  We are proud of the students recognized at the 2011 Gillespie County 4-H Banquet held at the Gillespie county Farm Bureau Center and the marching bands.

Fredericksburg’s interesting weekend events offer samplings of activities unfamiliar to most city folks.  The Annual Lone Star Gourd Festival opened yesterday at the Exhibition Hall and Peddler’s Pavilion at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds.  It continues through Sunday.  Artisans from across Texas are displaying their artworks and children will find hands-on arts and crafts activities at the Gourd Fest.

In addition, the Annual Fredericksburg Indian Artifact Show is happening in Pioneer Pavilion at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.  This show includes 70 tables of fossil displays, some dating back to 10,000 B.C.  Texas collectors travel here to show off their ancient treasures for the benefit of buyers, sellers, traders, and all interested parties.

On Sunday, October 16, 2011, residents and friends of Fredericksburg homes will take steps to relieve world hunger.  The Hill Country Hike for Hunger and annual walk begin with registration at 2:30 p.m. from the Kinderhalle at Marktplatz.  Three quarters of the proceeds go to the church World Services and the remainder to the Fredericksburg Food Pantry.  Events include a 5K walk through residential areas (3.1 miles) and the Golden Walk, a shorter version.
