without volunteers. The plan is to staff the center with volunteers, of course as a central intake point for those who have time and talents to offer to community initiatives.
If you weren't able to make the casting call we held in Bastrop last month, you have another chance. Following is a recent press release, "Vicky Boone Casting is conducting a state wide search for young African American males, ages six to eight years old, with great imaginations and natural wit for a lead role in "Sweet Cheeks," an upcoming feature film shooting in the Austin area in August. The film is directed by award winning filmmaker Todd Rohal, who also directed "Nature Calls," starring Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt.
The events began with a worship service Thursday evening, followed by the Heritage Jubilee Banquet on the next evening. Pastor Bernie Jackson was the banquet chair and mistress of ceremonies. Mayor Terry Orr and County Judge Paul Pape brought greetings.

"This is a special invitation to all of you who have so generously donated your time and treasures to the Bastrop Main Street Program over the last seven years, so please attend so we can pat you on the back and thank you, thank you, thank you!"
What a great idea.
Saturday morning's parade featured classic cars, floats, a fire truck and mounted riders and was followed by the Blue Flame Cruisers' car show at city hall. That night, a street dance on Main Street had lots of folks "shakin' a leg."

Casting call in Smithville
Putting this all together has been a project of the Organization Committee of the Bastrop Main Street Program which is ably directed by Nancy Wood. Shawn Pletsch is the committee chair and sent the following message, "Well, it's finally here, and I couldn't be more proud!
Through the years, I had an opportunity to attend services at his beloved Mount Rose Missionary Baptist Church. It was there that I got to know R. D. as a powerful preacher of the love of God and His eagerness to forgive our sinful ways. Gwen often accompanied the choir in a roof lifting gospel hymn. He loved his congregation, and they loved him, which was so very evident at the celebration of his 25th year as pastor of Mt. Rose.
Shawn also sends out thanks to "committee members Michelle Adams, Frank Huffman, B. K. Nell, Dorothy Skarnulis, Ann Tankersley, Linda Wilson, Deborah Johnson, Karen Carter, Tasha Shannon, and Warren Pedersen for their hard work, as well as to Mayor Orr, City Manager Mike Talbot, city council, and lots of interested volunteers."
It's known as "the little house by the Convention Center" or "Nancy Wood's office" or "the Bastrop Main Street Program office." Historical records list it as the Historic Laake Farmhouse. Thursday, June 20, we will cut the ribbon and launch its new incarnation as the Bastrop Community Volunteer Center.
Smith was one of those people you expected to always be here. It is hard to imagine our community without him. Rest in peace, my friend.
and by love. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I also was privileged attend the home going of our beloved Jewell Hodges, another giant in our community, where R. D. officiated. He spoke lovingly of Jewell's many contributions to Bastrop, often with a catch in his throat. Little did I know that it would be the last time I would see him.
I first met Rev. R. D. Smith and his lovely wife, Gwen, shortly after moving to Bastrop in 2004. We were at a political function of some kind, which was often the case, and I got to know him as a staunch defender of human rights and an advocate for those who could not speak for themselves.
June is National Fruit and Vegetable Month and the 1832 Farmers Market is replete with fresh organic tomatoes, potatoes, squash, cucumbers, beans and so much more. In addition, there are prepared artisan breads, herbs, soaps, Chinese traditional herbals, baked goods, grass fed beef and pork. Local jewelers and potters are also on hand.
You see, he was a man who loved deeply. He never failed to give me a big hug, as only he could, and would often call me his "girl friend." I was always quick to add that Gwen knew about it. He would always laugh that big laugh of his. I will miss that laugh and those hugs.
Roderick Emanuel joined Rev. Jackson for the awards ceremony. The Early Start Award went to Annie Washington; the Community Service Award winner was Esther Raye Tolbert Owens. Reverend C. A. Williams garnered the Rev. C. L. Franklin award and Detective Tamera Brown received the Christine Nix Award, while the Mary McLeod Bethune Award went to Barbara G. Clemons.

A special note of thanks Omega Constellation Replica goes to Dick Smith who crafted the committee's initial proposal to Mr. Talbot and the city council advocating that the space be set aside and dedicated as a volunteer center. The parades, festivals and all of the numerous events that go on in town and benefit our community could not happen Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Price
The production is looking for extroverted and funny kids who are full of ideas, comfortable around new people and environments and who like hearing, telling or creating stories. Kids with interesting faces and timeless looks are especially encouraged to submit. Though no acting experience is necessary, kids will be paid on the scale of professional actors. Here is the character description: Tyson, aged 6 to 8 years, African American, is a practical joker with natural wit and a mischievous smile. He is a young Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Marlon Wayans. No appointment is necessary. Kids will be seen in the order they arrive. The audition will consist of a short interview with a member of the casting team and possibly a short on camera interview with the casting director. Councilmember Dock Jackson ably serves at the committee's president.
