Cowboy Poetry Night

Cowboy on Horseback

Thursday, April 30, 2015
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Meeting Room

Polish your boots and dust off your hat!? Get ready for a rollicking evening with area cowboy poets.

Out west there was a time
When every young man could rhyme.
The cowboy poet tradition grew out of cattle drives and camp fire yarns and is still entertaining camp fire and convention hall visitors. Cowboy poetry usually rhymes but it sure is not serious!
Plan to don your denims and help welcome these traveling bards to Dripping Springs and come on over for a real treat!

Local poet Nancy Fierstien will be on hand to keep things moving along.
"We've got three featured guests lined up for that evening," Fierstien said.

Drippin's own Doyle Fellers will share the spotlight with San Antonio's "Bard of the Blanco" Ernie Lee and Temple poet Tony Blisard.



Mah-jongg!  Mysterious? Maybe?  Fun? Definitely!

2012-Mah-jongg
Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to rattle the tiles and join the fun every Wednesday of each month from 1 – 4 PM in the Dripping Springs Community Library Meeting Room. Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you to other players  and get you started.  Bring a current Mah-Jongg card and your set if you have one.

“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden.  “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding.  It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”

Want to be included in the fun?  Email suzanne@dscl.org to receive email reminders each month!
