Galveston Bay Foundation celebrates the 2012 Children’s Art calendar winners

Webster, TX – January 25, 2012 – Proud students and families, teachers, and principals gathered at an award ceremony to celebrate the fourteen winners of the 2012 Children’s Art Calendar contest on January 18th at Sims Bayou Nature Center on Sims Bayou.

The Galveston Bay Foundation (“GBF”) estimates that this project has reached over 10,000 fifth grade students in its past 20 years. More than 440 students from 10 different schools submitted entries for the 2012 Galveston Bay Children’s Art Calendar contest.


Students who live around the Bay were asked, “What people, plants, or animals can you find in and around Galveston Bay?” or “Who uses Galveston Bay?” Through their knowledge and creativity, students illustrated their answer to one of those questions.

“This year’s Galveston Bay Children’s Art Calendar is particularly special, as GBF is celebrating our 25th anniversary,” said GBF’s Manager of Education Programs, Rani Henderson. She continued, “The calendar features the students’ wonderful art as well as two new features, The Green Thing tips and QR codes for smart phone users. It is our hope that these new features in this year’s calendar will inspire and create action amongst the many users of Galveston Bay.”

GBF would like to congratulate all of the 2012 Galveston Bay Children’s Art Calendar contest winners.

Crosby’s Stomp returns with big crowd

CROSBY – When American Legion David H. McNerney Post hosted the Crosby Stomp last Saturday night the band played the traditional Texas Swing and the strings were tight and the music smooth for a little tight dancing.

Many of us were able to visit with friends that we had not seen in many years. The parking lot held about 220 vehicles and the dance hall was brimming.

A Live and Silent Auction was held and a drawing for door prizes.

According to Mrs. Guillory the Ladies Auxillary believes that the Stomp (a tradition of street dancing in Crosby dating back to the 19th Century) is revived. Plans are now to host the event every two or three months, probably every two.

The River Road boys played all the favorites and the capacity crowd did the rest.

Admittance was $10 per person or $15 per couple. No word yet when the next dance will be held but there are plans being made.

The American Legion put together the attraction and gathered donations for the event’s features. Keep reading for further developments.
