Do You Have Your Derby Day Party Tickets?

Get them NOW.


We're less than three weeks away from post time for the third annual KWVH Kentucky Derby Party Presented by Ozona Bank! The hottest party in the Wimberley Valley is Saturday, May 4th at the Videre Estate.

 

The event is likely to sell out, so click the button below to secure your tickets before they're gone. The air conditioned party features great food, mint juleps, a live and silent auction, lovely hats, and the 150th Run for the Roses.


Are you (or is someone you know) a Swiftie? Then this event is for you! We'll be auctioning off a Taylor Swift concert package that includes four concert tickets, airfare, and hotel to see her perform this November in Indianapolis. You even get an autographed Taylor Swift guitar. That's a prize package you'll likely never, ever, ever see again.

Wimberley Good Neighbor Volunteer of the Month

Congratulations to Jon Clayton, this year's State Farm Good Neighbor Volunteer of the Month! Jon was nominated by Amigos de Jesus for his service to their bi-weekly food bank. He orders all of the groceries, and makes sure the shelves are stocked every week. In addition, he maintains a database that tracks the number of individuals and families that Amigos de Jesus serves. Jon is bilingual and works whenever is necessary to support those in need.

 

The KWVH Volunteer of the Month is John McGimsey. Johnny Mac hosts the Wednesday morning wake up club and produces the Friday wake up club show. He’s a member of the KWVH technical and engineering team. He’s been married to his wife Leslie for 32 years—and you know his son, Scott Baker – aka Mr. Mac!

 

The Wimberley Non-Profit of the Month is the Wimberley Birding Society. Founded in1986, the Wimberley Birding Society began as a Bluebird Society. A year later the group had 88 members, and today has hundreds of members who enjoy the many projects completed to save wetlands and make birding a year-round hobby for many in the Wimberley Valley!

RR 12/3237 Road Update

Hays County is scheduled to begin night-time paving operations on Ranch Road 12 in Wimberley. A lane closure will be set up each night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Sunday night, April 14, until Friday morning, April 19, weather permitting. RR 12 will be reduced to one lane with two-way traffic control in place. Flagging personnel will maintain traffic flow in the remaining lane.

 

Access to all driveways within the work zone will be maintained at all times and no impacts to traffic are anticipated. Travelers are asked to drive with caution and watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the work area.

 

Hopefully this means we're getting close to wrapping up work on that intersection!
