It's getting close, you can feel the excitement all over San Antonio as 101 Community Organizations prepare for FIESTA SAN ANTONIO 2009! The members of The Woman's Club of San Antonio are busy putting the finishing touches on their Official FIESTA Events and participation in the FIESTA Parades.
The Woman's Club's FIESTA Pins & Medals were designed in 2008 by a committee, which I chaired! They are now officially for sale. You can contact The Woman's Club directly, contact me or you can purchase them at the FIESTA Store on Broadway.
The Fiesta Teen Queen has been selected and has already begun attending pre-FIESTA Events. The FIESTA Queens' Reception is scheduled for Thursday, March 26, 2009, at The Woodward House (by invitation only). We spent the day today preparing food and decorating the house -- tomorrow we add the finishing touches and will open the doors to welcome the Queens of FIESTA to a beautiful reception...be watching for photos.
