A gift for every Club Member who needs us the most is no small goal. For some of these youth, these gifts are the only ones they will receive. Your participation in Reindeer Brigade carries a significance far beyond the gift itself. This year, please consider being a part of this tremendous effort. Email give@BeGreatSA.org to sign up. We will match you with a Club Member’s holiday wish list. Place the unwrapped gifts in a holiday gift bag (suggested spending is $25 per child), attach the wish list, and deliver to the Mays Family Clubhouse at 123 Ralph Avenue by Friday, December 7.

Children’s Vegetable Garden Program SEPTEMBER 8 - DECEMBER 15

The Garden is proud to present one of the nation’s oldest youth gardening programs. Children ages 8-13 get their hands-on horticulture with the help of our partner organizations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners. The Children’s Vegetable Garden Program at the San Antonio Botanical Garden is an opportunity for children to grow their own vegetables and ornamental plants with the help of instructors from the Texas A&M AgriLIFE Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners, as well as other volunteer organizations. Each child is allotted a 3.5’x28’ garden plot. Children will have fun growing different types of seeds, vegetables, and ornamental annual flowers. Children can also earn their Junior Master Gardener certification by participating in fun, hands-on activities each week after they have tended their garden. In order to gain the most from the learning experience and to help ensure successful growing, participants are required to attend all sessions (two absences are allowed). Families are welcome to share the gardening experience with their child. A parent or guardian must stay with their child. San Antonio Botanical Garden

Destino San Antonio @ Briscoe SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 - JANUARY 21, 2019

Destino San Antonio presents, for the first time, selections from the Briscoe Museum’s collection of nearly 600 stereographs of San Antonio, dating from the 1860s to 1930. The exhibition is inspired by the structure of the stereograph─ a picture composed of two superposed images that give a three-dimensional effect when viewed with a stereoscope or special glasses. Artist and guest curator Anne Wallace incorporates multiple perspectives on the image and identity of San Antonio during a time of profound transition after the Civil War until the final days of the “frontier,” inviting us to engage with the past and consider the future of our City.

Members of the community are invited to bring non-perishable food donations with them to help support the food drive. As part of the event, the 20 VFW posts will convoy their food donations to the San Antonio Food Bank and then help sort the food items intended for veterans and military families.

As part of its Bold Goal work to make San Antonio 20 percent healthier by 2020, Humana is bringing the VFW and the San Antonio Food Bank together to impact food insecurity locally.
