The directors of the Polly Texas Pioneers Association will host “Celebrate a Bandera Texas Legend: Jose Policarpio ‘Polly’ Rodriguez” Saturday, April 23. The fundraising event will be held at the historic Polly’s Chapel located off of Privilege Creek Road.
The festivities will begin with an inter-faith service, followed by a luncheon, a history symposium and an auction.
Young people can participate in the event by going to TexasTejano.com to download a picture for entry in a coloring contest.
The organizing group welcomes volunteers to help with the cooking and the auction.
