What a week we have had in Texas. Bastrop had almost 16 inches of rain courtesy of Harvey but no flooding. Our new community of La Grange did not fare as well with around 500 homes and businesses flooded by the Colorado River. However the waters stopped about 30 yards from the back door of the new gallery space so you can see that progress is going forward. And we have heard from all but one of our Houston area artists that all are safe and dry. Prayers for all those in Texas and Louisiana who are struggling to put life back together. If you are looking for a place to donate I highly recommend United Methodist Committee on Relief. This organization is known internationally for their disaster relief work and have already started sending volunteer teams to start the recovery. Every dollar you give goes directly to the recovery and rebuilding efforts. www.umcor.org.
