Blanco Needs Your Help

June 9, 2009

Remember that great little town you rode your bike through a few weeks ago.  Well they need our help.  I received a call from Mayor Tina Gourley today asking if we knew any one who could volunteer at their upcoming Lavender Fest.  The festival is this weekend and they are in desperate need of covering some key shifts.

Volunteers will be stationed at key locations to direct visitors to available parking areas (maps to be provided).

Parking Shifts (4 Volunteers per Shift)

Fri. 5PM-8PM          Sat. 10AM-1PM and 1PM-4PM     Sun.11AM-2PM and 2PM-4PM

Trash Pick-up:

Volunteers will make rounds to check on trash cans and recycling bins and empty contents into larger dumpsters and recycling containers as needed.

Pick-up Runs: (Volunteers: 2-4 volunteers per pick-up (2 pick-ups per “shift”)

Fri. 3PM, 6PM, 8PM, 10PM     Sat. 11AM, 1PM, 3PM and 6PM   Sun. 11AM, 1PM, 3PM, 6PM

All volunteers receive a free Lavender Fest T-shirt and Bicycle Sport Shop t-shirt, one bottle of water per shift, a chance to win a gift certificate to Rock’n R Steakhouse (which is amazing BTW.  This is the same person who owns Riley’s BBQ) and the towns undying gratitude.

If you would like to join me in Blanco on Saturday or if there is another day you can volunteer please email your desired job/shift and contact information to or call the chamber office at 830-833-5101.
