Below is a link to a site which supports proms for special needs students.  Warning: the video will make you cry! This has nothing to do with Hope Village, I just thought I would share it with you.

Hope Village goes to the Rodeo

Every year the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo gives Hope Village tickets to the Rodeo.  If you know anything about Hope Village you will know that we have some hardcore Country and Western fans amongst us.  The rodeo is a real highlight of the year.  The parents group rents a luxury bus so they all travel in style to the big show.  Last night the Villagers got to see a favorite, Dierks Bentley who put on a great show.  Thank you Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for this fabulous treat!













Here are some prerodeo pics:

Hope Happenings March 5 2013

Last Saturday our great friend Maurice and his fishing buddies put on a fantastic fish fry here at Hope Village.  We had a terrific turnout, the weather was good but the fish was fabulous.  Luckily we had enough leftover to have our own fish fry for the Villagers, which we did today.  Thanks Roger for frying up a mess of fish for us!






We are the happy recipients of this great composter.  We throw out a lot of scraps that would be great for making compost, now we can recycle them in this great composter and use them in our gardens.

Hope Happenings

Whats new at Hope Village, glad you asked.....

Thanks to a very nice Village Supporter our pool table has been redone with a new green felt.  We love to play pool around here,  and this is just what we needed.





Our garden is just getting started, hopefully we have had our last frost of the season, oh wait, did we have a frost!  We hope to plant a whole lot more in the coming weeks.



We had a farewell party for one of our favorite people. Leslie is moving out of the country.  While we are sad to see her go, we hope she is off on a great adventure.


So long for now!

An epic epicurean evening!

Every year the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce puts on a Epicurean Evening, showcasing all the local restaurants and their delicious food.  Hope Village is always there to represent our wonderful Cafe.  The staff and residents of Hope Village have a fantastic time showing off our great food.  This years theme was Taste of Space so we got into the Space Alien act. 

We were offering a taste of our new sandwich the 'Village Chicken Salad Club'.  It was a great hit with the crowd.  You can get your own taste by coming by and having lunch with us. We deliver to the local area or will pack it to go.

How does your garden grow?


 We are lucky here in South Texas that we can start our gardens early in the year.  We have weeded the beds and are starting our seeds.  It is exciting to watch them grow.  We are hoping to dry some of our herbs this years and use them in our spice and herb mixes.

Suitcase Safari Diorama


Photo
Our residents have been studying about animals is Africa.  Each group made a suitcase diorama.  This one is a safari scene.  After a week of learning about animals the residents visited a local animal park and got to see some of these animals up close and personal.

Introducing Hope Spice

We have had great success with Hope Soap, our bath and body line of products made here at the Village.  At Christmas we introduced Hope Soup and Hope Sweets, a line of soup and cookie/brownie mix which received rave reviews. 
We are really excited to introduce our new line of Hope Spice. We had a super Chili Mix, it's on the mild side so it is perfect for all tastes.  If you like your chili hotter you can add your own cayenne pepper.  We also have a great Rajin Cajun mix, and a Healthy Ranch Dressing mix.  There will be more mixes to come.  
These mixes are assembled and packaged at Hope Village.  All proceeds benefit the residents and programs at Hope Village. 
Are you interested in purchasing some Hope Spice?  Give us a call at 281-400-2006 for more information.
