"Heritage Association's 'Home Garden Sale' kicked off at the PSC"
Each May, the Heritage Association of San Marcos sponsors a public tour of historic homes. The Price Center was invited this year to be a tour "home," even though it is not exactly a home -- although seeming like one for those who spend hours there -- and it is certainly historic, dating from 1893.
A garden sale took place outside with entertainment (here by a 14 year old performer) for visiting guests. Inside, activities typical of a regular day were taking place to create an "activity tour." For more photos go to our Flickr page.
"Hands of Hope 'High Tea and Style Show' at the PSC""Hands of Hope" is a volunteer organization that began with several First Baptist Church of San Marcos women who took on a mission of providing job training and basic work skills, as well as social skills, to young women who missed out on such opportunities in their early years. The organization quickly attracted a variety of other teachers and variety dedicated professionals who recognized the need for such assistance and support, donating help to the biannual two-week all-day sessions.
Many of the students were destitute, homeless, withdrawn, desperate, angry or aimless and discover new meaning in their lives with "Hands of Hope" help. The group raises its operational funds with an annual High Tea and Style Show, presented at the Price Seniors Center, where community assistance is a stated aspect of its own mission. With donations from well over one hundred women joining the event each year, "Hand of Hope" is able to literally save lost lives. The Price Center is privileged to provided support.

"Freckleface Strawberry- The Musical on the PSC's Flickr"
"Freckleface Strawberry” is a children’s play with an adult message: Learn to live with you distinctiveness -- good or less so -- and to respect the distinctiveness of others' failings or virtues.
Produced for a three day run at the Price Center, the show was staged with professional panasch by the Black Diamond Cabaret Theatre in Wimberley. It was a very meaningful and classy performance by emerging theatrical youngsters or appreciative seniors and pre-seniors of all ages. Our thanks to Lee Coleé Studios for this production.
"Road Show Will Air in May"
Eight small towns across the country were chosen to exhibit their local talent pool for AMC's "Road Show", San Marcos being one of those eight. The American Music Classic cable channel filmed the auditions, training for the movie, and the final show to select the talent winner for four days at the Price Seniors Center with a crew of thirty movie-makers applauding the Center's adaptable qualities.
AMC's "Road Show" for San Marcos will premiere in May and we'll make sure to keep you updated! Until then, we have photos of the filming on our Flickr page now!
