A Night Under the Stars Your invited

Only a 100 seats available.  Call me to reserve yours today. 210-415-1912  See you there.

Annual Meeting of Friends

Letting you know how the meeting went.  Although not many
people in attendance, we accomplished a lot.  The minutes of
the last meeting were read, a treasury report was given, and a committee report of future fund raising events for Casa Navarro.

I will be posting one of those events that is scheduled for November.  Hope some of you will want to attend.  It will be
an exciting night of music, food and drinks.  The Symphonic Band of San Antonio will perform for a concert under the Stars at Casa
Navarro.  Watch for my invitation to you all.

At our meeting we learned of exciting things that are happening
in and around the Casa Navarro.  Most of you know that the San Pedro Creek development is coming along very well and will be a big asset to the Casa.  Across the street on Nueva St. will be the new Federal Courthouse.  What some of you might not know is that the University of Texas at San Antonio will be building at least three new buildings.  One will be where the parking lot is now, the other will be where the white jail is and the third will be on the other side of the San Pedro Creek, behind the Casa Navarro.  The Casa Navarro grounds will be extended all the way to the Creek now, making it acquired land for us to use for a building of our own, plus parking, and access for busses to drop of tours.  These are all great news for our organization as it will keep us in the lime light of what is happening in San Antonio.   The new Federal Building has not been named yet.  We are diligently working
to get it named after our ancestor Jose Antonio Navarro.

Anyone, who is familiar with this process and is willing to help us 
get this done.  It would be greatly appreciated.

I hope that these new future happenings will encourage you to
join us and be a part of all that is happening.

Annual Meeting just a little over 2 weeks away!

If your reading my blog right now you must
be thinking why is she letting me know again
about the annual meeting?

It's because it is a very important meeting.  We will
be discussing things that will impact the site for
the next few years.  What, with the San Pedro Creek
Liniar Park on our back door and the new Federal
Building to be build across the street from Casa
Navarro on Nueva St. there is a lot to talk about.
We will be presenting nominees for officers of the
Board of Friends and discussing the possibility of
moving the dues date for membership to Mr. Navarro's
Birthday February 27th.  We will need your input.
I personally anticipate everyone wanting to participate in
our family heritage historical site.  Did you know
that the Francisco Ruiz's home, was the first school
house in San Antonio?  Mr. Ruiz was a school teacher
for our city.  His home is presently at the Witte Museum
on Broadway St. in San Antonio and is used as the
gift shop for the museum.  We are on a mission to
get it moved back to where it originally stood and that
is on Dolorasa St. which was bounded by the San Pedro Creek. 
The San Pedro Creek not only goes behind the Spanish
Governor's Palace, and the Casa Navarro, it should also
pass the Ruiz home which is a part of Texas history that
needs to be preserved and put in its proper place.  
We are going to petition the City of San Antonio to get it moved
back to where it belongs.  We are also petitioning the
City to name the new Federal Building after our esteemed ancestor Jose Antonio Navarro.

You can see how valuable you working with us can be.
I know that many of you have talents that could be
utilized by the Friends Organiztion and what a better cause
for you to participate in but this.  Please join me.  I need
your help.
