“Outdoor events like the Western Swing Spring Fling will offer patrons an entertaining night out that we’ve all been missing so much.

The Quebe Sisters honor the Texas roots of Western Swing, playing the style Bob Wills pioneered in an authentic way by incorporating new genres and songs, interpreting classic styles using their own unique voice through Country instrumentation.

“To us, preserving the tradition of Western Swing isn’t about keeping something alive like a relic. Western Swing has always been about innovation.” offers Grace Quebe. The band’s stripped-down acoustic stylings breathes new life into seasoned sounds once found in Texas dance halls and honky-tonks.

Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, The Quebe Sisters have shared stages with American music legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, Larry Gatlin, and the Gatlin Brothers, Ray Benson, and Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky and many others.

26th Annual Community Trash-Off to Be Held Feb. 27

26th Annual Community Trash-Off to Be Held Virtually

The 26th Annual Community Trash-Off for Orange, Texas, and surrounding communities will take place VIRTUALLY on Saturday, February 27, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Community Trash-Off is organized by the staff of Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center and conducted by volunteers from Orange, West Orange, Pinehurst, and other surrounding communities.

Online registration can be found here.

While the INVISTA Sponsored Community Trash-off is a popular way to get involved and make a difference, in light of the impact of COVID-19, as well as recommendations from the Stark Foundation and government leadership,  this year’s event will be a virtually organized “clean up” opportunity. The sponsoring organizations would love to come together for a day of community service and fellowship, but the safety of our community members is paramount, especially those who are put in harm’s way by the spread of COVID-19.

This year, each registered participant will be provided with their own kit of tools to effectively participate in the clean-up efforts throughout their community, not for just one day, but year-round. Each kit will contain one reusable bag, one trash grabber, one safety vest, one pair of gloves, and four garbage bags. Our hope is to empower our community to continue clean-up efforts year-round by providing the basic tools required for the job.

Participants will register for a Trash-off kit to be picked up at the gardens by the participant or a representative. Participants will head out into their neighborhood or anywhere they like to walk, collect the litter they see and post a photo on Shangri La Gardens Facebook page or on their personal profile with the hashtag #VirtualCommunityTrashOff2021 #TrashOffFlashOn.

This year, if participants are able to transport their own collected litter to the dumpster at the city of Orange Boat Ramp (follow the signs), that they do so. Litter bag pick-up will be available to those who need assistance.
