Box 1-35, Boston, MA 02113 The Salesians Boys and Girls Club on Byron Street in East Boston fill the nine- week program with weekly themes, including Mass themes, weekly religious themes, and camp themes. The staff orchestrates ath- letic and creative activities to reflect the themes Of the week and keep the mem- bers, ranging from 6 to 14 years old, enthusiastic about the camp-wide events. Staff from the three age groups organized age appropriate activities for Service Week. During this time, the mem- bers show appreciation for those who help them every day, such as parents and friends. They also paid special attention to recogniz- ing those who can help in an emergency. Cassie Cardenas cooked homemade donuts with her Junior Group for the police officers of the East Boston District A-7 Police Department and received a tour of the facility from an off-duty officer. The juniors also made cookies for the East Boston Engine 9 and Ladder 2 Fire Department on Sumner Street. The group is very thankful to the officers and fire-fighters who were more than happy to take time out of their busy schedule for the kids. Service Week has also given them the opportunity to recognize those who are less fortunate. Renee Elliott planned a car wash and a bake sale with her Senior Group of 11- to 14-year-old members, donating all pro- ceeds to Children's Hospital in Boston. Renee's group raised over $700 during the two fundraisers! The younger group made place- mats for the Meals on Wheels program at Spinelli's Cater- ing for Elder Services. Each drawing is unique for an equally unique person who might need something spe- cial to brighten up their day. Cat toys were also made to donate to Boston's Forgotten Felines. Service Week at summer camp has shown that even though they are young, they can help others and brighten their day, even ff it is through small steps. by Sal Giarratani "You can go to hell, but as for me I will go to Texas." -- Davy Crockett The Texas Tyler Rose. I just got back from my annual vacation to America down in Austin, Texas. Our nation seems to be becom- ing what it never was before. Once Boston was America, where we were proud of our heritage and rather than run from it, we embraced it. They still embrace America in Texas, even liberals in Austin. You see the Ameri- can flag flying everywhere and you see just as many Lone Star flags flying, too. People down there are proud of America and proud of Texas. You can feel the un- bridled spirit of indepen- dence in the Texas wind. The iconic Frost Bank Tower on Congress Avenue in Downtown Austin. make our own luck.* I also saw a poster of the City of Austin stating, "Austin: A place that will get into your blood and stay forever." This was my ninth trip to Texas. The first trip was in- voluntarily. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and landed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. After that, my trips were by choice. Dallas, Wichita Falls, San Antonio Here's Sal searching for his inner cowboy. a "Billy Jack" hat. The guy took his order and soon the hat will be his. He told me Billy Jack wasn't me, but I would look great in a Butch Cassidy hat. I took his card and am stilling thinking about it. By the way, I already have two cowboy hats. I bought the first one up in the Panhandle over 30 years ago, and the second at a cowboy supermar- ket three years ago. So do I really need a third hat? I will return there again and may not even wait until and finally Austin. My nephew and I traveled to a San Antonio flea mar- ket to meet a hatter. This guy is well-known for his work and my nephew wanted next July. After all, Christ- mas is nice and warm down there and no one ever has to own a snow shovel, which is a big plus after last February here. i
