The Hot Diggity Dog shindig on Saturday, August 29 was a hit! We took in almost $2,000 with sale of T-shirts, renewals and new memberships and the donation box! 150 hot dogs barbecued by “The Man”—Virgil Price were scarfed down with trimmings of delicious chili and sauerkraut. Jerry Lichac cut five huge chilled watermelons which were devoured with equal enthusiasm! Our cute Student Advisors manned a lemonade stand offering a cool drink for 25 cents, their profit going toward student activities. The day was gorgeous with a lovely breeze under the front beach pavilion. Many thanks to Pam Ray for masterminding the fun event and kudos to many others that pitched in for fun and food!

Night Under Texas Stars is rapidly approaching on Saturday, September 19 from 6-9pm at the Sanctuary. Tickets are still being sold for this major fundraising extravaganza and “Friends” will be hosting fifteen Texas authors for an elegant evening of dining and socializing with guests and authors. Please contact Joanie Morgan to get your tickets at The Treasure Chest and plan on spending a lovely evening with like-minded reading enthusiasts. If you have a silent auction item to donate, please let “Friends” know. We would like as many items as possible that are literary related.

Save Saturday, October 24 for the annual Chili/Gumbo Cook-off at Hooper’s Bar and Grill. His new restaurant is still in the process of being completed, but Jim Hooper assures that he still plans to host the event this year as he has for the last several years. Hoop is an ardent supporter of “Friends” and the goal to build a new bigger and better library in little Port O’Connor! Of course, he wants a goodly number of cooks to put their culinary skills to work and silent auction items will be sought and welcomed!
