Lil’Wranglers was formed in 1999 by Sharon Toups when she noticed that her two children had the potential to begin learning country western dancing. Sharon was part of the Aggie Wranglers organization while in college at Texas A&M. She gathered together a few children and started Lil’Wranglers, modeled after the Texas A&M Aggie Wranglers. Aggie Wranglers is a country and western jitterbug dance group at A&M that performs at various events in the community and internationally. To date, Lil’Wranglers have performed at more than 350 events.
Lil’Wranglers and Aggie Wranglers are part of a deep rooted tradition that is rich in history. It is something that families can share, and parents like Sharon can pass down to their children.
This organization enables children and youth to learn, perform and compete across the state. The individuals involved cultivate a love for dance and spread the spirit of Aggieland wherever they go. The program blesses those who participate and those who have the privilege of watching the performances.
Lil’Wranglers could not exist without the support and donations of local businesses and individuals, specifically those listed below.

What do you get when you throw together paint, wine and creativity? A pretty picture! Painting with a Twist is a new local art studio that is the perfect idea for a night out. Have you ever wanted to decorate your house with original artwork? Or have you wanted to save money by making your own painting instead of spending hundreds on a professional’s work? Have you wondered how close you can get to forging the famous Starry Night? Maybe you need an outlet for all that stress from work. Or maybe you just have a desire to slap some color onto some canvas. If you relate to any of this, then Painting with a Twist is the solution that will bring your dreams to life.
The studio’s motto is quite catchy: “It’s a little bit of paint, a little bit of wine, and a whole lot of FUN!” Who does not love paint, wine and fun? Painting is one of my favorite creative outlets. And I do not know about you but I always want instruction when doing something for the first time. This studio has thousands of pieces of artwork for inspiration, materials like canvasses and paint brushes and lessons taught by local artists for anyone in the community who is interested. Customers can pick from the studio’s calendar what picture they want to paint and call in reservations for that night. The lessons will be guided step-by-step, and upon completing your work of art, you can take it home!

Early in the morning or late in the evening, a cool breeze hits College Station and people are reminded of the beautiful fall weather that is on its way. Although fall technically begins September 22 this year, the College Station City fall activities have already begun. Youth programs, adult programs, senior adult programs, special events and all types of parks are open to the general public.
The city offers many different sports to youth in College Station between the ages of 5 and 18. Kids love to be active, and the best way to teach them a healthy lifestyle is to teach them to love working out! Sports like flag football, volleyball, basketball, and tennis are all offered on different days for kids of all ages. There is even a soccer team for children with special needs. The cost of the program ranges from $15 per child to $105 per child. Practices are a couple times a week and each team will participate in games in the community. If you are interested in coaching one of these sports, you can apply to volunteer at cstx.gov/sportsvolunteer.
There are also youth programs other than sporting events. Kids Klub is available as an after school program for any child enrolled in College Station ISD elementary or intermediate schools. Kids Klub strives to teach children to develop their physical, social, emotional and Read the rest of this entry »

The campus alone has several options for those looking for the perfect reading spot or a strong cup of Joe. In the newly renovated MSC, there is a Barnes & Noble shop with a spacious sitting area near their Starbucks coffee bar. The glass walls and bright contemporary furniture give the shop a mod feel. It is very well lit and has a nice variety of cushy comfy seats and tables to appeal to all sorts of potential customers. Whether you are looking to curl up in a large chair, sit down and study at a table, or spend time lounging and chatting with a friend, the Barnes & Noble Starbucks can cater to all needs.
Poor Yorick’s is a coffee bar tucked away in a corner of Evan’s Library on main campus. There is a long bar where customers can sit and drink their coffee or pull out something to work on. Tall and low tables and chairs are also available for the coffee seeker. The best part of this spot is that nearby there is a study area with square booths. The back of the booths has walls that reach about five feet up to block out sound and provide privacy.
Bernie’s café is a cute little place tacked onto the side of Sbisa Diner. With glass display counters and tall stools Read the rest of this entry »
