Tuesday, December 9th: Holiday Party Features Special Venue, Music, and Silent Auction

Come celebrate with the Alamo Group at our annual Holiday Party and Potluck Dinner on Tuesday, December 9th from 7 to 9 p.m.. This special event will be held at Dorćol Distilling Company, 1902 S Flores St (south of Cevallos, at the railroad crossing). Dorćol‘s diverse and unique elixirs will be available—made with traditional apricot brandy or non-alcoholic. There will be a tour of the distillery at 7 p.m.

Featured contributions are the Latin fusion music of Los Nahuatlatos and great food from Bird Bakery and Panera, among others, and  delightful  potluck dishes we welcome from our members. As in years past, there will be a silent auction of unique donated items and certificates that make great holiday gifts.  Many new donors include 5 Guys Burgers, Arcade Mid Town Kitchen, Capital Genealogy, and Chris Madrid's, and there are many past supporters such as John Hertz Architectural Design, Hearthstone Deli and Bakery, La Madeleine, Paesanos, and K Charles Salon. Our Youth Outdoors San Antonio program will be selling beautiful 2015 Sierra Club calendars. Auction items will be posted on our website's Events page shortly before the event so you can bid on them via email in case you can't make it to the party.

There will be a $10 cover fee at the door. All proceeds go to promote our worthwhile cause. There is free parking on the streets and the public is welcome. Please contact Margaret Day if you have any questions, would like to help, or wish to donate to our auction.

We hope to see you there. Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year!

Environmental Highlights - State & Local

SAWS Vista Ridge Pipeline Deal

City Council approved SAWS' $3.4 billion Vista Ridge Pipeline contract on October 30th. But we remain committed to working on this issue so we can make sure the deal is equitable to ratepayers and environmentally sound.

Visit our Clearinghouse for Vista Ridge Information webpage, where you can find news articles about the deal, comments and analyses about the proposal, and technical studies.


Make your voice heard! City council decisions, regulatory actions, legislation in Austin; we need to be ready to act at a moment's notice to support the good and stop the bad.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple phone call or email message to sway the opinion of our local elected leaders and officials. Contact us and we will add you to our Alamo Sierra Club Action Alert Email List. You don't have to be a Sierra Club member to receive our alerts, (but we do hope you'll join us).
