2012 Spring Picnic

On March 31, 2012 the second Spring Picnic was held.  Several new activities were added

The loudest and most exciting activity of the the second Spring Picnic was the Bonnie & Clyde shootout.  Everyone also enjoyed the sounds of the E-Flat Porch Band and the vintage baseball games featuring the Houston Babes, the Katy Combines and the Boerne White Sox.

The Antique Car, Buggy & Tractor Parade had a nice array of old wheels, including a number of antique tractors, several antique cars and two antique pickup trucks.

James Toman's collection of antique toys, mostly trucks of all sorts, was on display in the Santa Fe Museum.

Food and drink popular in the early 1900s was served.  

Historical information about all the activities and foods was presented on the signs located near each activity or booth.  

A quilt show was also held in conjunction with the Spring Picnic in 2012.  Nearly all of the quilts were antique hand-made quilts.  There were some very fine, well-made quilts in the exhibit.  Also on exhibit were antique hand-crocheted bed spreads. 

We were very fortunate to have many individuals and businesses come forth to sponsor the event.  We greatly appreciate the sponsors' willingness to help with the first Spring Picnic--it could not have been done without our sponsors.

The "Spoiled Doves" from Austin reenacted a Bonnie & Clyde shootout. They ran through the museum, firing guns, jumped on the running board of a 1930s car and sped away!  Great fun.
