Worship in Johnson Park on April 22

Worship in the Park, a new, old tradition

Johnson Park will be recognized on the afternoon of April 22 with a Lone Star Legacy Park marker, but event on Sunday, April 17, will be the kind of use that created that legacy: a central gathering place for the City of Marble Falls as early as 1887.

The 5th Annual St. Andrew Picnic in the Park will be held there, as gatherings surely were 130 years ago. The St. Andrew Presbyterian congregation will be joined by Fellowship Baptist Church and Trinity Episcopal Church to host an 11 a.m. worship service in the park amphitheater.


Quilts on display this weekend

Quilts of all shapes, sizes, colors and patterns will be on display this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 12-13, when the Marble Falls Quilt Club hosts its 5th Biennial Quilt Show at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista in Marble Falls.

“Made in America” is the theme for the to be carried out in some of the 90 quilts on display, but most especially the donation quilt that will help raise funding for the club's programs, among them: scholarships for local high school students, Anti Ouch Pouches for Breast Cancer patients, Threads of Love quilts, Learning with Quilts for school libraries and quilting promotions in the community.
