Successful Easter Egg Hunt
Posted on Apr 22nd, 2014 Comments (0)
It was a fun and fast Easter egg hunt at the FOR Community Center on Saturday, April 19. In less than 15 minutes all the eggs were collected neatly in baskets or bags. View and/or purchase photos of egg hunt at
Pete Rabbit, the taller second cousin of Peter, arrived by boat and started the mad scramble for the colored eggs filled with goodies. This is the third year for the annual egg hunt hosted by the Friends of the River San Bernard. The cookies, cupcakes, milk and orange juice that were served disappeared as quickly as the eggs.

A Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) Texas Stream Team training class was held at the FOR Community Center on Thursday, April 10, 2014. Volunteers completed two phases of 
a three phase training program using test kits that measure physical and chemical parameters of the water of the San Bernard.
Volunteers are asked to monitor their site on the river monthly at the same time of day each month, for a two year commitment.
They submit their completed information to the H-GAC Texas Stream Team Coordinator. The data is forwarded and analyzed to create quality assured scientific reports. Read Valroy’s monthly reports.
Established in 1991 as Texas Watch, Texas Stream Team is administered through a cooperative partnership between Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Where in the world has the FOR flag been?
Posted on Apr 14th, 2014 Comments (0)
The FOR flag made an appearance, in what is regarded as the second, third or fifth most beautiful beach in the world, depending on who you’re talking to. The beautiful white sandy beach stretches along the entire bay on one of the gems of the Caribbean that lies between Puerto Rico and Saint Thomas.
Where in the world is the FOR flag? Look for answer next week.
