Plans are underway for a evening of tropical fun, food, and fundraising at the third annual Friends of the River San Bernard "Escape to the Tropics" event. This year's theme "Blue Hawaii" pays homage to Elvis Presley's 1961 movie.
Upon entry, you'll receive a colorful lei and a taste of the island's complimentary drink of azure-colored Blue Hawaii punch served on the lanai (Hawaiian for porch). Elvis will be there to meet you and have your photo taken with him. You’ll then pass through burning tiki torches on your way to a huge party tent where an island-style meal and lively live auction takes place.
It all happens Saturday evening, Oct 1, 2016, 6:00 pm under a huge tent at the FOR Community Center on the banks of the San Bernard. So dig out your wild tourist-in-the-tropics clothing and make plans attend in October. Elvis may have left the building but he is heading for the river!!! (Elvis lives through impersonator Billy Wayde.)
“Escape to the Tropics” is a once a year event to raise money to support FOR San Bernard projects and activities. We are looking for sponsors, auction items and volunteers to join in this event to help keep the San Bernard the greatest little river in Texas!
FOR San Bernard is grateful for the generous support and participation of its friends. FOR will pursue its mission of stewardship for the San Bernard River watershed by continuing to offer programs such as river and road cleanups, River Ranger 5th grade watershed education, environmental education presentations, scholarships, advocating for opening the river mouth, and conservation easement.
