MUSEUM TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL COWBOY DAY

10:30 a.m. to ~11:00 a.m. / 1550 Bandera Highway

The Museum of Western Art will celebrate the 12th annual National Day of the Cowboy on Saturday, July 23, 2016, in conjunction with the Museum’s Family Free Day event. Youngsters, parents and grandparents are encouraged to attend the event, which is free for all Kerr County families. At 10:30 a.m., everyone will be given a special tour of the art in the galleries by Western artist Herman Walker, and will have the opportunity to compare it to aspects of the Cowboy Coe of Conduct. After each buckaroo repeats the Cowboy Code, he or she will be made an honorary Junior Trail Boss with fun things to take home. A craft activity can be created, and refreshments will be served at the Pavilion. Stephanie Turnham, Executive Director, said, “We have begun a new Family Free Day event designed to attract local residents, and since National Day of the Cowboy is on Family Free Day, we thought this would be a perfect activity for all Kerrvillites to enjoy.” “The art in the museum illustrates in many ways the characteristics of the Code of Conduct for the American cowboy and cowgirl,” she added. “A visitor can walk through the galleries and view examples in canvas and in bronze that illustrate cowboy characteristics of bravery and courage, love for the land and animals, and tolerance and respect of others. The event will reinforce what children are taught in school and at church.” For more information about this event or about the museum, please call 896.2553, or visit the museum’s website at www.mowatx.com.

FURRED, FINNED & FEATHERED FRIENDS / View Archive
Levi
Levi is a recent rescue puppy, energetic, sweet, and smart. More than anything else in the world (besides eating), he loves running, playing, and being hugged and petted. Levi is ready to find his forever family. He’s about 10 months old, 45 pounds, and has been neutered, wormed, and vaccinated. He even comes with his own bag of food and a new collar. Total cost for all that puppy’s love and devotion: Love him back, and love him well. He currently lives with Ginger Coleman in the Union Valley area. Thanks to Patsy Vigil Scherrer and Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter in Nixon, for their dedication to saving the lives of dogs like Levi. For more information, text Ginger at 281-414-2363.
