Kiss the ‘Dog Days’ of August Good-Bye on Saturday, August 31st at the Wallis American Legion Dance featuring Charles & the Fabulous Four with plenty of A/C and cold adult beverages!  Then hopefully we can start putting away the summer clothes and start getting ready for Fairs and Football Season!  Our neighbors, Fort Bend County Fair runs Sept. 27–Oct.6th, followed by the Austin County

Fair “Aiming for the Stars” taking off  Oct. 4-13th.  Both Fairs showcase great traditions, offering great Family fun with carnivals, music, food, livestock and farm exhibits and Rodeo excitement, while supporting our youth too.  Check both websites; and for schedule details of all the action.  One more way to wrap-up August is to take time this Labor Day weekend to enjoy the “SEA of MUD” Archeology Exhibit featured at the San Felipe de Austin Museum, it ends September 2nd with special presentations to close this exhibit, or call 979-885-2181 for information.  Meanwhile GO BRAZOS COUGARS!!
