Fiesta medal

SA League's first Fiesta medal is almost ready

By LEE H. TINKER

Are you looking for a fun way to support the League of Women Voters and celebrate Fiesta at the same time? LWVSAA board member Linda Arronge has arranged for the first, limited-edition League of Women Voters Fiesta medal, which allows you to do both!

Picture yourself wearing this medal with the words 'Empowering Voters' on a light blue sash. Arronge said members "requested bling," so the background is glittery.

Sporting this pin will make it easy for your friends and acquaintances to ask you about LWVSAA membership and activities.

Only 200 medals will be made, and they will cost $10 each. The medals

are due to arrive by mid-February, giving members who buy them early plenty of time to wear them in neighborhoods all around San Antonio.

 How can you be assured you'll be first in line for this one-of-a-kind medal? They will be for sale at the Animal Defense League's Artsy 

Barksy Fiesta Medal Launch Party on Friday, Feb. 23, 6-9 p.m. The night will include local art, beer and wine sampling and food trucks.

Your dog is welcome to join you at this event, as long as they're well behaved in crowds and updated on their rabies vaccinations.

Consider this your invitation to get your LWVSAA Fiesta medal at the ADL's Petco Pavilion in the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions, 210 Tuleta Drive, San Antonio. For questions about this event, contact Matt at melmore@adltexas.org.

The medals will also be available later, possibly online and definitely at Fiesta Fiesta kickoff event April 19. Details to come later.

As Arronge said, "Viva Fiesta!"
