Featured Event

Share-a-Bear Family Movie Night

Date(s): 10/10/2014

7:00 pm

Uni-Trade Stadium
The Webb County Sheriff’s Office has set a new date for the Share-a-Bear movie night. We invite the community to join in the fun at UniTrade Stadium Friday, October 10, at 7 p.m. for the family movie night, featuring the popular Disney movie Frozen.

The event held by the Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit is part of Share-a-bear, a project benefitting children who have been victims of crime and/or natural disasters. Families are asked to donate one new stuffed animal for this great cause.

The goal is to collect hundreds if not thousands of new stuffed animals which will then be distributed to the children who have experienced a traumatic event in the Laredo and Webb County area. With the stuffed animals, we hope to bring a smile to the little ones during their time of crisis.

The stuffed animals will not only be given to law enforcement agencies to disburse, but all first responders and hospitals in our community.

Students who donate for this special project will be eligible to receive community service hours for each teddy bear donated, with a maximum of 10 hours.

Bring your blankets and join us for this family outing with our friend Pancho from the Laredo Lemurs and Eddie Eagle!

NOTE: Coverage in advance and at the family movie night would greatly be appreciated.

TAMIU Science Center and Planetarium 9th Anniversary

Date(s): 4/12/2014

11:00 am - 8:00 pm

TAMIU Science Center and Planetarium
Family fun and the Disney movie, “WALL-E” will be featured presentations at Texas A&M International University’s 9th Lamar Bruni Vergara Planetarium Anniversary celebration Saturday, April 12.

The celebration will take place from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. at the Planetarium and will include food, music, crafts, face paintings, and presentations by local dance teams. “WALL-E” show times will be every two hours, from 2 -8 p.m., with $3 general admission. Entrance to the event is free and open to the public.

Funds generated at the Anniversary will help support the Planetarium’s educational outreach initiatives, said Peter Davis, Planetarium director.

“For years, the community has supported our Planetarium through thousands of individual and school visits as well as birthdays and other social events,” Davis said, “As we celebrate this anniversary, we would like to encourage everyone to bring their families for a day of both outdoor and indoor fun as well as invite friends who might not yet be familiar with our impressive and modern facilities.”

The TAMIU Lamar Bruni Vergara Planetarium is a one of a kind teaching, learning and special occasion space located at TAMIU. The Planetarium is open to the public for shows, star gazing events, field trips and private functions. It is one of the most sophisticated planetariums in the State of Texas and operates a state-of-the-art digital projection system. Its technology allows not only a view from planet Earth, but from any part of the known universe, taking audiences to structures unseen, except by highly developed telescopes.

The Digistar 3 projectors use powerful graphics hardware and software to generate immersive full-dome images on the interior surface of a dome, integrating all-dome video, real-time 3D computer graphics, and a complete digital astronomy package.
