Wassailfest gives city that Christmas spirit
j There's no better way to catch the holiday spirit > than by enjoying an evening of music and wassail in downtown New Braunfels. More than 200 talented musical groups will perform downtown from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday — celebrating the fourth annual Wassailfest.
f There will be everything from bell choirs to | barbershop quartets, from choirs to dancers, from i bagpipes to Mariachis to German music. Stroll • from business to business (there will be more than ‘ SO wassail stops and open houses), sampling I wassail and listening to the strains of Christmas I music in the clear December air. Groups will \ perform at various times in 17 downtown locations. In addition, several merchants will have
their very own special music inside their stores.
Pick up your program and map at any merchant downtown that evening or at the plaza. Guests can collect stamps from various businesses in order to vote for the best wassail and enter for great door prize packages. Mr. and Mrs. Santa will be available for photos at the Hinman House on Caste!! Avenue.
A special sneak preview of Glowfest — set for Dec. 14 and 15 — will be a hot air balloon display at the plaza, illuminating downtown like a beautiful Christmas ornament.
Catch the wassail bus, courtesy of Bluebonnet Motors, to go from one end of downtown to the other — or take an old-fashioned horse and buggy
ride or hay ride through the streets of New Braunfels and feel the hometown spirit.
The Brauntex movie theater will have a special holiday showing of “Miracle on 34th Street” (new version) for the kids — and chaperone service will be provided by the Rotary Interact Group frqm New Braunfels High School.
Cast your vote at 8:30 p.m. on the plaza for the best wassail and be eligible for a great variety of door prize packages. As you depart from the plaza, the courthouse bells will ring out the holiday chimes.
Contact Lynn Fountain at 608-2100 for information.

Reach for a Star aims to bring holiday to needy
The Christmas season is upon us. This means a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, give thanks for the year past and the year ahead. A time to spend with family and friends. Also, during this time children anxiously await the arrival of Santa Claus.
But unfortunately there are those children who wouldn’t have a Santa or dinner on Christmas without the help of “Reach for a Star” and other organizations in the community.
Reach for a Star is asking that community members reach out and help give local children a Christmas.
This-can be done by dropping off new or used toys at Red McCombs Universal Motors, or taking a star off of one of the trees at Wal-Mart and purchasing a
gift. Church or school groups could volunteer their time and earn some community service hours by helping to wrap and deliver to those in need.
Reach for a Star will be wrapping and sorting starting at IO a.m. Dec. 21, and will deliver to families in need starting at noon Dec. 22. This will take place at Red McCombs Universal Motors.
Those who would like to volunteer, make a cash donation or have any questions can call Randy Kasberg t 629-9387 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Corbee after 5 p.m. at 608-9406.
There is nothing more rewarding than to see the smile on a child’s face when presented with a gift.
