July 2008 Meeting

Thanks to an idea brought forth by River Road resident Hector Gonzalez, RRNA Board member Bill Sibley has asked City Archaeologist, Kay Hindes and Bill Pennell of the City Parks Dept. to address the next RRNA Board Meeting (on Thursday, July 24 – new date!) about the possibilty of identifying and restoring portions of the original 18th century Spanish Acqueduct (Acequia) that exists today in River Road. (Part of the Acequia can be viewed in the southwest corner of Allison Park, crossing Allison Drive and proceeding west, bordering Bob Price’s property.) At one point there were over 50 miles of Acequias constructed in San Antonio. Come learn how we can (hopefully) preserve this important historic legacy still “hiding” in our midst. 7:00 PM – Lions Meeting House – 7/24/08).
