Good News Stories

We recommend that before visiting a restaurant, retail store or other business or government agency that you call ahead to find out whether they’re open for in-person business and what their restrictions are.

Good News:  We’ve heard of a Wimberley woman showing the true spirit of community and keeping the “neighbors helping neighbors” ethos alive by delivering food to elderly and high-risk neighbors free of charge.  Follow her example.  Check on your neighbors, find out what they need and help them get it even if you’re the one who gets it for them. If you know of similar stories, please let us know.  We can make sure that these good Samaritans get the recognition they deserve, or they can remain anonymous.

Sugar Shack Bakery is making fresh breads as quickly as they can.  Come by and grab a fresh loaf or call in and place your order for a fresh loaf tomorrow.  They will continue baking bread daily. They are taking orders for white sandwich bread only, and any other breads are on a first come first served basis.

Wimberley Ace Hardware offers Face Time personal shopping.  If you need something from Ace and need more hands-on assistance than you can get from ordering online, please call.  

Meals on Wheels will continue to serve their clients with no changes to the schedule.

EmilyAnn Theatre and Gardens is not letting COVID-19 ruin its annual Butterfly Fest.  You can drive through EmilyAnn and adopt a caterpillar to raise, along with three Butterfly Festival crafts to do at home.  You get a caterpillar with a little caterpillar home with food and instructions. As you raise your caterpillars, you can post pictures videos to EmilyAnn’s Facebook page with the hashtag #butterflyfest2020 so that everyone can see your butterflies take flight.

Texas State Parks are Open:  Do you want to get away from everybody?  Thanks to the coronavirus, parents suddenly find themselves with some free time on their hands and kids get bored fast.  Now is a good time to poke around the Texas Parks and Wildlife website. There are 18 state parks around the Wimberley area, and they’re open.  Get out in nature and enjoy our state parks.

While there are no formal activities at any of Wimberley’s five city parks, they are still open.  Being out in nature is just as beneficial to your mental health as it is to your physical health which is crucial to your wellbeing.  Practice social distancing but do it in the parks! Wimberley’s five city parks are Blue Hole Regional Park, Cypress Creek nature Trail, Old Baldy, Ranch Road 12 Rest Area and the Patsy Glen Refuge.

Barnabas Connection is coordinating help for people in the community.  They need volunteers to answer Barnabas Help Line calls and to drive members of the community to medical appointments.  Also, they’re collecting monetary donations for Barnabas Connection and the Wimberley Crisis Bread Basket.
