The San Antonio River Foundation and San Antonio River Authority are delighted to introduce you to the 4th Annual Mission Reach Flotilla Fiesta’s Royalty: The River Monarchs John and Treva Chadwell.
John and Treva Chadwell love water. Treva was born in Corpus Christi, TX, but grew up along the San Antonio River and has many fond memories of that time. John was born in San Antonio and took his first steps along the Frio River in Leakey, TX. He even swam as a merman at Aquarena Springs in San Marcos, TX where Treva sold tickets to the show! Treva, a recently named H-E-B Woman of Distinction, is a teaching chef at Central Market. John helps food-making entrepreneurs start their business and works with Corazon Ministries providing meals and house to insecure people in San Antonio.
John and Treva tremendously enjoy the San Antonio River and its improvements. On weekends, you may find them cycling along the Mission Reach on their tandem bicycle, strolling along the Museum Reach or having a picnic near one of the dams just to hear the babbling of running water.
The San Antonio River is restorative to the River Monarchs and they are excited to rein over Flotilla Fiesta where YOU can find meaning in the River too.
Mission County Park Pavilions, 6030 Padre Dr, San Antonio, TX 78214. Parking is available in grassy lots on site.
You can do your part to make Flotilla Fiesta green by taking alternate transportation. Instead of your car, you can take the bus, ride a bike, or walk to the event. If you need to bring a vehicle, it’s a great idea to carpool!
Recycling is a way each of us can do our part to be better stewards of the environment as long as we are careful not to contaminate our efforts. Contamination occurs in recycling when non-recycables are placed in recycling. Contamination can include anything from food waste to plastic bags.
When a certain percent of a batch of recycling is contaminated, the whole batch of recycling is considered unusable and thrown away. Therefore contamination can undermine the good recycling habits of others and cause easily recyclable items to end up in land fills.
