From "Can-struction" to Construction

We are approaching the middle of September and our SAGO efforts are not slowing down! In case you missed it, on Monday was our annual "Canstruction" grand opening event. It was a great event and lots of impressive structures all built using cans. More than 12 architectural and engineering firms competed in the annual event. Remember, the people's choice winner will be set up in our lobby for a whole year! This year's winner is Pes"Can"tarian. Remember, you can check out all the structures located at various points in North Star Mall.


And speaking of "Can"struction, the New Braunfels Food Bank is moving along as well. We are finally seeing the dirt being moved around and the pouring of the pillars. The recent rain has pushed us back some on deadlines but still looking good for summer 2017. Exciting!
