TRIP TO THE HISTORIC CITY OF GONZALES
COST: $80 INCLUDING LUNCH
DEADLINE: MARCH 12
Come and visit the “come and take it” historic Gonzales Tx. This is a Centennial Historical Memorial Museum that commemorates the Immortal 32 who died in the Alamo. Memorabilia from the founders of Gonzales is prominently displayed. The Come and Take It Cannon which fired the first shot for Texas Independence on October 2, 1835 is prominently displayed. No single statement sums up Gonzales, Texas more than “Come and take it!” Why? Because that single defiant phrased uttered about a tiny but powerful cannon is believed to have launched the Texas Revolution in 1835. Rarely has such a small piece of hardware launched such a contentious battle.
The Pioneer Village: The Gonzales Living History Center, often referred to as “The Village,” houses a collection of 1800s and early 1900s era houses and buildings from Gonzales County. Visitors strolling through the village often feel as if they have just stepped the same era as that of the original occupants. All are manned by costumed volunteers. Admission $5 per person and is included in the cost above.
We will leave from in front of the Quads at 8:30 a.m. The exhibits are open from 10-12 a.m. On our way back we will stop and grab a bite to eat. We will need at least13 to make the trip for $80 each.

DEADLINE: APR 11
Written by Dale Wasserman; Music by Mitch Leigh; Lyrics by Joe Darion
Dream the impossible dream full of adventure and music led by the storyteller Miguel de Cervantes as he portrays the ultimate Knight Errant, Don Quixote! The wild winds of fortune have swept Cervantes into the Spanish Inquisition where he sits in jail awaiting trial. There he entertains his fellow prisoners with tales of chivalry and battles with evil (and windmills). We’ll meet his side-kick Sancho and the serving girl, Aldonza, whom he imagines is the beautiful lady Dulcinea. Both the prisoners and the audience will be deeply affected by the sweeping story and the soaring music of this timeless tale of adventure and love in unexpected places.
We will meet in Georgetown at the Theater at 1:30-1:45. Please register with your money by April 11. Following the play we will eat a meal together at a place to be determined at your cost.
MAGNOLIA MARKET IN WACO (Chip and Joanna Gaines)
DR. PEPPER MUSEUM TOUR
COST: $80 INCLUDING LUNCH AND THE DR. PEPPER TOUR
DEADLINE: MAY 5
There's a little something for everyone at Magnolia Market at the Silos. Shopping, games, the garden and even a bite to eat. The Market itself is staged and set up with one goal in mind: to inspire you to own the space you're in. We hope that you'll come to visit and leave excited about your home. We can't wait to welcome you to Silos Baking Co., our on-site bakery filled with Joanna's personal recipes and hand-picked favorites—like "The Silos Cookie", "The Prize Pig" bacon and cheddar biscuit, and the "Nuts & Bolts" cupcake. So, grab a treat and enjoy our eat-in patio, or if you're on the go, grab a quick bite at the Silos Baking Co. Airstream in the food truck park. We don't want you to miss this little corner of the Silos—it's definitely the sweetest!
Dr.Pepper Museum Tour: Our most popular tour, Waco: Home of Dr. Pepper, tells the story of the invention of Dr. Pepper and the growth of the soft drink industry.

We will leave from in front of the Quads at 9 am and return around 4 pm. The cost includes the bus, lunch and the Dr. Pepper Museum Tour.
