DON'T STORE THOSE COATS...
You know you'll buy a new one next year anyway!
Bring that winter coat, jacket, hoodie and all those gloves, scarves & hats to the Llano Chamber and Visitor Center.  

Our Chamber is the Llano Junior Woman's Culture Club distribution center for the Coats for Kids event in November and would like to encourage everyone to donate all year long!  Needy local children benefit greatly from this cause and your donations help keep it going.  Please consider helping if you can by looking though your winter items as you do your Spring cleaning.

If you would like to join the Llano Junior Woman's Culture Club, please contact Kim Webb at 325-247-5354 and attend a meeting or volunteer with the group.
