There’s an old expression that “lightning never strikes twice.” How I wish that were true.
Bastrop County has suffered through repeated natural disasters — two devastating wildfires and multiple floods — in the last five years. With help from local, state, and federal funding, Bastrop continues to rebuild and recover.
But as we all know, the needs far exceed what has been provided. Families have been displaced and homes have been destroyed or ruined. Many folks saw their home and their property damaged more than once as disasters struck.
The Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team does extraordinary work. Their goal is to bring the community back to pre-disaster levels. They fill the essential role of coordinating volunteers and financial donations. And they’re putting together a great event to support the ongoing recovery efforts.
Please join me in supporting the Bastrop community by attending or donating to the “Standing Together Through Fire and Rain” concert this weekend. It will be a great event — with friends from across Central Texas and a live concert by Asleep at the Wheel.
Saturday, January 9
5:30 to 10:30pm
Bastrop Convention Center
Featuring Asleep at the Wheel
