Texas Gathering July 18-20th!

The time has come to meet again Out in our hills so green!

We'll walk and talk, and eat and sleep And laugh and swim and shop!

Come and meet, or come and play, we'll have a lot of fun.

Then in the end, when all is done, you'll know you're glad that you have come!

This year we are returning to Fredericksburg, a friendly little village nestled cozily in the Texas Hill Country. Meeting dates are July 18 - 20th! Last summer we had such a great time we couldn't wait to get back this summer! Check out the city's website at

Is this a good time to go? Texas peaches and blackberries and nectarines will be ripening -- our meeting date is just three days after the big peach jamboree!

We'll meet Tuesday, the July 18th at 2 pm on the town square. (It is easy to find, central in town, and on Main Street.) From there we can discuss preferred events for the coming hours we have to share. There is Lukenbach, Johnson City area, a Dulcimer factory, a toy museum, lots of antiques... if we want to go to New Braunfels there is a great Hummel museum and tubing on the Perdanales River. Check out the Fredericksburg website for more information on what all is in the area!

Our 'home base' will be the Peach Tree Inn again this year. You can read about the inn at:

It was built in the 1940's, has recently been remodeled to reflect its era. It is clean, friendly, and inexpensive!

We've picked as central a location as we think we can ... and still have some fun surrounding us. Please try to join us -- we'd love to meet you!
