Art Week Dec 14-20
We are Germer Insurance Services happily support the local art community. Here's an update from the San Marcos Art League.
The Hays County Food Bank fundraiser is off to a good start, but many friends and neighbors in our community are struggling even more this particularly difficult year. You can still drop off food donations at the Art Center or snag a holiday ornament or two. Proceeds from these sales go directly to the Food Bank.
Beautiful Christmas ornaments on sale at the Price Center range from $8 to $18 and proceeds from the sale of these classic ornaments (still packed in their original boxes from places like Neiman Marcus and Foley's) will be split equally between the San Marcos Art League and the Hays County Food Bank.
Through December 24th
