Reptile Show Review

We were so pleased with the turnout at our first “Super Saturday” children’s event!  80+ residents and friends of Scofield came to the pool today to be educated and entertained by Michael Foux and his Austin Reptile Show.  Thankfully the rain stopped in time for the event and cloudy skies kept things cooler.  Everyone enjoyed the presentation, which included several lizards, turtles and (non-venomous) snakes.  Those who were brave enough even had a chance to touch the reptiles!  Many thanks to all of you who came out as well as those who helped with setup/cleanup.  Don’t miss our next Super Saturday event on 8/31!

Reptile Show at the Pool – Saturday, July 27

lizardThis Saturday July 27, come to the pool from 10-11 am for a visit from Michael Foux and the Austin Reptile Show.  He will be presenting his “Reptile Adventure” program featuring a hands-on look at 12 live reptiles from around the world.  Mr. Foux has shared his love of reptiles with children of all ages at many schools, libraries and events throughout the Austin area.

A couple of notes:

  • Please refrain from eating and drinking during the presentation.  We’ll serve refreshments afterward.
  • Bring towels and/or blankets for children to sit on.

Don’t miss your chance to meet the reptiles!

4th of July Party Recap and Thanks

A great time was had by all at the recent 4th of July party!  The festivities started with a parade down Braided Rope and Scofield Farms Drives led by an Austin Fire Department truck. Volunteers gave away red, white, and blue bandannas, hats and tiaras for participants before the parade.

The pool party began shortly thereafter. Refreshments included hot dogs, chips, cake, watermelon, and freeze pops. Everyone also enjoyed games including the ever-popular coin toss and watermelon relay.

A special thank you is in order to all the volunteers, with special recognition due to Maria Shelby who has done such an excellent job organizing this party for the past several years. Alan Shelby also kept the festivities on track as the emcee. Other volunteers include: Isaiah and Marina Butts, Dan Frasier, Mike, Wynn and Wesley Hutter, David and Leigh Ann Brunson, Laura Nattinger, and many others at the event who stepped up to help bring the party together!

Feel free to bring your lawn chairs for the event, and make sure your kids have their swim goggles for the coin toss!
