Even though activities for youngsters at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bandera County have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has partnered with Bandera County Produce and Market to bring fresh fruit and vegetables to Bandera beginning on Friday, April 17.
Fruit and vegetables will be for sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the club pavilion, 715 Maple St. in Bandera, information on the clubs’ website said. Cash and credit card purchases will be available.
Officials hope to continue the market every Friday.
Since the club operates on the same calendar as that used by the Bandera Independent School District, it does not plan to resume activities for youngsters until May 4, officials said.
Director Amy Ouellete said, “I have been in contact with national organization and other clubs to learn about anything the club can do virtually with our limited resources. I am still awaiting information to move forward.”
“We have had to place some of our staff on furlough, however through dedication, many are still offering voluntary support,” she said. “We are in the process of planning for our return. Staff has done some planning for summer day camps. Like everyone else, we are waiting week by week on information during these difficult times.”
The organization provides activities for youngsters ages 5-18 at three locations in the county.
