GFWC Juniorettes of Alpine
In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, the Alpine Juniorettes promoted the Arts, Education, International Outreach and Conservation at their Annual GO TEXAS Fall Festival which was held for the first time in the Alpine Civic Center with the support of City Council of Alpine who granted the use of the Civic Center and waived all fees. The Juniorettes planned various programs including an art lecture by an author on the pioneering women of Modern Art movement of the 19th & 20th century, performances by dancers, singers and martial arts. The club invited businesses, non-profit organizations and schools to participate and promoted products, services, cultures and communities and all Texas has to offer. This festival brings Big Bend community and visitors to come and enjoy this wonderful event in Far West Texas.
Also on Keep Alpine Beautiful project emphasized Conservation and hosted a luncheon forum attended by delegates of Alpine High School Honor Society & Student Council, their sponsors, the Student Counselor & School Principal with KAB Coordinator as guest speaker, promoting the use of reusable totes in lieu of plastic bags, thereby reduce trash in the landfill and highways and preserve our eco-system. This group in cooperation with other civic groups painted the logo/signs to remind shoppers to use their reusable bags on the parking lots next to entrances of businesses in town.
