Chicktime Bulverde started the New Year off with its annual Chicktime calendar and t-shirt designing workshop. The calendar hi-lites all the Chicktime workshops and events and even gives them something to color each month. Next, the designed a t-shirt with a “word of Inspiration” to live by for the next year.
There are a lot of talent with this group. We wrapped things up with lunch, consisting of tamales, chili, rice and queso. A big “shout out” to our wonderful volunteers who gave their Saturday morning to these kids.
Please join us next month as the Alamo City LX Modern Mopar Group shows the kids at SJRC basic car maintenance.
We will not be having a December workshop.
We will see you in the new year.

Thank you Liz and Cora for leading the children of SJRC through the “My Amazing Self” activity.
The Children are very inspirational and truly amazing. It was so wonderful to hear them share their messages of what is important to be successful with each other…such amazing courage. They also enjoyed making their own Halloween desserts!
September’s workshop was a blast. We had the kiddos think about what their goals were after finishing school. They made envision board and/or notebooks, talked about career choices and even did some cooking. They enjoyed each other’s company while snacking on sliders, chips, brownies and cookies. Chicktime Bulverde is so blessed and honored to have such amazing volunteers who come out and love on these awesome kids.
Please come out and join us every third Saturday of the month from 9:00 am to noon.
We are also looking for volunteers to host a workshop in the year 2020. Please let us know if you are interested or have any questions. Your workshop is simply sharing your passion with the kids at SJRC. When you are excited about what you do, others will share along with your joy. Come try it out with us!
Our September Workshop activity has changed. We will no longer be participating off campus in the Bulverde Jubilee Parade.
We are planning some wonderful life skill activities at SJRC!
We would love to have as many volunteers as possible to help us with the workshop, but mostly to share love and encouragement to these kids that need it!

Merry Christmas from Chicktime Bulverde!
This month, we had so much fun with both SJRC Texas campuses as we celebrated Christmas at Peter Piper Pizza and Santa’s Ranch! Over 60 kids from the ranch ate pizza, played games and drank hot chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkles while taking the most beautiful light tour in Texas. Thank you to everyone who donated to make this night so special. Kids in care want to be with their families more than ever this time of the year so by volunteering and maintaining an established relationship with an organization you make such a difference in their holidays. Chicktime does it by showing up and giving them a familiar joy every month that brings smiles, peace, and a sense of family. We hope you will join us at Chicktime January!
What a beautiful chicktime this month! Julie and her son Jacob taught everyone how to make a gorgeous flower arrangements and paper flowers. She owns a flower shop called Artistic Blooms Inc, and donated buckets of fresh flowers and over 40 baskets for everyone to take with them. What a treat it was to see this amazing chick and her little dude shine while doing what she does best!
Chicktime this weekend was INCREDIBLE!! Will, who is in high school was the leader this month. The stations were well thought out, fun and educational. It was the perfect back to school chicktime, everyone was participating and having fun!! We made super bubbles, testing buoyancy, made lava lamps and 3D structures. Thanks to Will, his Dad, and all the volunteers that made Saturday so special!
The St. Jude’s Children and volunteer cooled down by playing water games; the cool down began with relay games and ended with water balloons and water guns. With all this fun we got quite hungry; so the kids and volunteer shared pizza, salad, lemonade, funnel cakes and delicious watermelon. We are so blessed to have such wonderful leaders every month. Thanks everyone. See you all next month!
It’s was a fun day at the carnival! Who doesn’t love a day of fun, games and good eats? We had a blast bringing an exciting day to the kiddos at St. Jude’s. They lit up with excitement as they played at the Water Gun Takedown booth, Balloon Dart Pop, Pie FACE, Wiffle Ball Toss, Guess How much in a Jar, Hula Hoop Toss, and Whack-A-Tin! There was a happy buzz of laughter in the air and bellies were full. The food was awesome as we all ate too much Cotton Candy, Popcorn, Hot Dogs, Mac n Cheese and tons of Candy! The lucky winners of the Cupcake Walk even indulged in cute little cupcakes which were donated by our amazing volunteers at Chicktime Bulverde! I am blown away by the effort, thought, preparation and care of the leaders this month and the joy we all shared as volunteers. We hope to see you this month at The Picnic.

The kids of all ages enjoyed spending time with the volunteers and making other creative items with all the great paper and stickers that were brought for the lanterns.
We had a wonderful Christmas Party this December Chicktime. The kids got to decorate cupcakes that sparked much creativity. There was also a photo booth for pictures with fun outfits that accompanied the Christmas cheer. Before the games started we passed out Christmas presents which included monogramed towels and Chicktime shirts. It was a great Chicktime thanks to all the volunteers and wonderful kids who allowed this all to be possible! We can’t wait for next year!
November was filled with great craft activities that everyone enjoyed.

We treated the kids to a fun swimming party at the Canyon Lake Country Club. Although splashing in the pool was a great time, we really enjoyed sitting on the deck eating the delicious hotdogs and visiting. It was a nice relaxing day at a great locations for basking in the sun with a little bit of rain to cool off the day.
Lots and lots of bubbles this August Chicktime! Thanks to Jane Nelson we had lots of fun blowing bubbles, making buttons, and playing with a huge parachute. The bubbles were a big hit for the kids and volunteers! We had many tools available to make bubbles of many shapes and sizes. The giant parachute helped us out with a-lot of games and other fun activities. It also easily turned into a fun dome to sit under with a rainbow of colors. The button maker produced many buttons with pre-made and personal sayings. The kids loved putting their own creativity into their buttons! Overall a great Chicktime! Thanks to all the kids, volunteers, and staff for making this all possible!
Who would have thought etiquette and sports agility would go hand in hand. We had such a wonderful day. A special Thank You goes out the the Harty Family for making this day possible and wonderful! We learned how to properly introduce yourself, set the table, and table manners. It is easy to have proper tables manners when you are served delicious fruit salad and mini cakes with frosting and sprinkles. Outside on the basketball court is where things really heated up. A quick warm up consisted of jumping and squatting before the real fun started. It takes a lot of concentration to move your feet: in in out out, without touching the squares on the ground. Everyone enjoyed the friendly competition during the medicine ball relay races. Thank you Harty Family and all the volunteers!
June was made possibly by Tara Johnson and the members of her book club. Thank you! We had a wonderful morning at the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library. Everyone enjoyed making journals, bookmarks, and ice cream. The library gave tours of the beautiful facilities, and donated a special gift to each child. The kids were ecstatic when they were told they could take a book home. What an awesome gift! Thank you again to all who helped make June such a joyful experience for the kids as well as all the volunteers.
What a wonderful morning!! A special thank you to Bonnie Cheatham, Carole Nelms and the staff at Paint Palooza. So many laughs, smiles, dirty paint brushes, and creative dolphins were generated during the May event. All the kids, staff, and volunteers enjoyed the activity. The morning was completed with snacks and drinks.
A special Thanks to Kelly Vizzone and all the volunteers for helping make February a sweet success. The morning started off with an informative history of the origin of Zumba. Then it was time to get busy busting out the moves. We jumped, twisted, spun, shake, ‘made soup’, and ‘washed windows’. After our heart rates were up and the sweat was pouring we slowed down our breathing and stretched our bodies with yoga. What a great way to spend the morning!
We had an amazing event with the girls in June. We did manicures and pedicures and had an awesome time. A huge thanks to all of our volunteers who showed up to make it a success. A special thanks to our national founder Lori Rhodes who donated the supplies and came to participate as well. Everyone came out of the event with beautifully painted nails and a great feeling of fellowship.
Our May event was truly spectacular at The Centre for Emergency Health Sciences. The girls had fun while learning all about how our bodies work. They learned CPR on dummies and they learned the Heimlich Maneuver by practicing on each other wearing specially made vests. We even learned the right way to wash our hands! We had a wonderful time at the Bulverde/Spring Branch EMS station and give big thanks to Candice Thompson, Capt. Scotty Bollitier, and Anatomy Ally. They really know their stuff and know how to make learning it lots of fun.
What a great time we had with the ladies of University of Incarnate Word basketball team and coach, Taylor Carter, Candice Chaney, and Michelle Hale. They showed the girls some basics on the court, advanced moves and we played some challenging games. The girls loved it and wanted them to come back soon.
Please come and join the Chicktime Glory Girls on April 13th from 9-11 at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, 1400 Ridge Creek Lane, Bulverde, Texas. We can’t wait to see YOU there!

I would like you all to welcome our wonderful new co-leader Betsy Fontaine to the Glory Girls. What a blessing Betsy is to Chicktime!
The Glory Girls event in March was an event to remember. It was hosted by Anna Schnabel and Carole Nelms. A big thank you to Bonnie Chetham for inviting these wonderful ladies to host. The theme was Mardi Gras. Carole did some great research, and taught everyone about the history of Mardi Gras, while the girls made colorful beaded and feathered masks. I think everyone there learned something. Carole is a great teacher. Anna had a wonderful selection of masks to choose from, and all the girls personalities and artistic abilities shown though in their decorations. Thanks to the gentlemen for making a very tasty low country shrimp boil. What a wonderful group of ladies we had there that day. A huge THANK YOU to all of you that came and helped. Please join us on April 13 from 9-11 for another exciting day.

Our February event was full of fun and laughter as we began the day decorating cupcakes and then Kari Surovik taught everyone how to play Bunco. With 6 tables of 4 each, the room was full of smiles and laughter and lots of shouts of “Bunco” as the girls rolled 3 of a kind on their dice. There were lots of winners – most wins, most losses, most Bunco’s etc; but the biggest win was watching all the smiles on the faces of the girls and hearing their laughter. Thank you Dee Patterson for planning the day and Kari and Lesli for making it happen when Dee needed to step in and help with a family event. For those of you who are reading this and have never come out to a Chickime event, we meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month and would love to have you join us. If you have a passion to share, or are creative, or just want to sponsor a month please contact one of the leaders of the Bulverde Glory Girls Chapter. We would love to have you.
Our January event was the best ever. The girls gave of themselves by serving at the CRC Food Bank in South San Antonio. It was such fun and rewarding for them, they have asked to help give out the food on a monthly basis. This day was a blessing for all involved.
