Food was provided with a South Texas cowboy style chuck wagon flavor. There was again a silent and live auction conducted. All proceeds went towards this summer’s “Project Insight Youth Camp”.

Third Thursday is a monthly function held on the third Thursday of each month. It is a self-nurturing workshop beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a social and potluck meal. This event was founded in 1998 by Marsha Gamel Nelson, Ph.D. in her Edinburg home. As the group began to grow, the Third Thursday meetings moved to El Rocio Retreat in 2001. There have been a variety of topics explored by speakers from all over the world.
