The Christmas Tree Recycling Program is this Saturday (and next). Drop off your trees, free of charge, at the Triangle, located at intersection of Hwy 290 and RR 12, from 8:00AM until 5:00PM on Saturday, January 3rd (you'll have one more chance next Saturday). Mulch made from the recycled trees will be available on a first-come-first-service basis. Individuals picking up mulch should bring their own bags and tools required to carry it away. Before depositing trees, all tree stands, lights, ornaments and other tree decorations must be removed. Please do not illegally dump any other items at the drop off location. If you have any questions, contact City Hall at (512)858-4725 for more information.

On Sunday, January 4th, music superstar Alejandro Escovedo is playing a benefit concert for his daughter's school, Parkside Hill Country School of Wimberley, at Dripping's Memory Lane (from 290 & 12, go 4.3 miles headed toward Wimberley, take a right on KC Memory Lane and go about 1/4 a mile). Escovedo will be backed by guitarist Charlie Sexton, cellist Brian Standefer, and violinist Warren Hood. Hood’s combo will open the show, which also features singer-songwriter Amanda Mora. In Dripping Springs, advance tickets are available at Itsy Bitsy Spider (on Mercer) for $25 (their hours aren't standard, so call first to see if they're open @ 512-858-2688). Tickets will be $30 at the door. Concert doors open @ 4:00PM.
