lonestarcarolA Lone Star Christmas Carol will be playing on December 18 from 8 – 10:15 p.m. at the Brauntex Theatre. Enjoy this entertaining twist on the classic story, “A Christmas Carol” written by Charles Dickens. The story often follows Scrooge, a grumpy, stingy man who doesn’t understand the spirit of Christmas. After ghosts show him Christmas past, present and future, he just might have a change of heart.

This annual production is a bit different every time, and this year it has a Texas twang! A Texas band and singers from Dallas and Austin will accompany a storyteller throughout this heartfelt Christmas tale. Tap your boots along, and feel the joy!

Hill Country for the Holidays!

holidays

Earlier this year, Bryan Kastleman of Kastleman & Associates released two press releases explaining the benefits of staying at a rental accommodation like Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort instead of just a regular hotel off the IH 35 corridor. Some of Bryan Kastleman’s favorite things about the New Braunfels area are the numerous events and the community life the city has to offer throughout the year. The Christmas and New Year’s season is filled with wonder around New Braunfels with plenty of entertainment in historic Gruene and downtown. From wassailing around town to lighting ceremonies and meeting Santa Claus out and about – there are plenty of reasons to want to be in New Braunfels this holiday season!

Bryan Kastleman and Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort are expanding to make way for all the travelers wanting to be more than just “tourists” in New Braunfels, but rather looking to stay a while and take part in all the charming features of this intriguing city tucked between San Antonio and Austin. They are now offering more than 100 cottage rentals, including both park model RV’s and locally manufactured homes. The cottages range in style and can accommodate between two and eight people. And, because they want you to feel at home during your visit and stay as long as you can, the cottages are all fully furnished for your maximum comfort.

Bryan Kastleman and his team greatly appreciate the community life here in New Braunfels and believe that is what makes this place so special. So in designing a community life at Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort, he wanted to inspire that same “family atmosphere” you find around town. Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort provides recreational facilities for the entire family to enjoy and plenty of space to roam and relax. If it weren’t for the vibrant opportunities around town, you might not even want to leave the grounds! For more information check out http://www.hillcountryrvresortnb.com/. We hope that you have a very special Christmas season while visiting and if you can’t make it to see us this year, we hope to see you in 2016!

Spotlight: NB Housing Partners

Did you know that in America on any given night there are approximately 643,067 people experiencing homelessness? 238,110 of those people are in families; 25% suffer from mental illness including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression; 17% are considered chronically homeless; 13% are fleeing domestic violence; and 12% are veterans. You may think that homelessness is only in larger cities but it touches smaller cities like New Braunfels more than you may realize.

In New Braunfels a non-profit organization called Connections offers a secure alternative to the “streets” for homeless, abused, or at-risk youth. Another successful example of helping the homeless is Green Doors in Austin, Texas. They are a non-profit organization that owns and manages 28 properties throughout Austin. They are serving more than 300 residents annually, which includes managing 50 rental assistance vouchers for low income households in Travis, Williamson and Burnet Counties. Through these opportunities Green Doors is able to serve a variety of people struggling with poverty and homelessness, including veterans, persons with disabilities, and single parent families.

In February 2013 a group of locals formed NB Housing Partners: a non-profit set out to build the first transitional living shelter for the homeless right here in New Braunfels. The organization hopes to provide short term housing solutions to both individuals and families who may be facing a housing crisis. Key directors of this organization include Kellie Stallings from the before mentioned Connections Individual and Family Services and seasoned real estate professional Bryan Kastleman. If you are interested in assisting in the efforts of the NB Housing Partners or know someone needing transitional housing please e-mail bkastle@kastleman.com.
