SERVE 300 SA is a community service initiative designed to directly and positively affect the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Every one will have an opportunity to participate and contribute toward improving our city. San Antonio thrives on connection and compassion, and Serve 300 SA poses this challenge: How will you make your community better?
San Antonio values its history; its citizens wear their pride and passion on their sleeves. SPARK 300 SA reflect the city’s commitment to education at all levels – public, private, charter, and collegiate – and can be found in all parts of our community. It’s little wonder then that History and Education would play a central role in the city’s Tricentennial celebration. We imagine featured exhibits, a commemorative book, interactive learning opportunities, thrilling reenactments of events in their original settings, and many other learning opportunities.
Our city’s multicultural roots are reflected in today’s multifaceted fine art, music, festivals and theater; some are long-held, beloved traditions and others are innovative new ideas. SHINE 300 SA will highlight creative expression in its many forms will honor San Antonio’s arts and culture, including public art projects, educational opportunities, and performances.
A year of festivities and celebrations will culminate in a week of commemorative events, topping off San Antonio’s 300th year. Events will take place in various parts of the city and include an interfaith celebration, history and education day, and a Founder’s Ball, and neighborhood events.
