Painted Churches of Texas
 Bus Tour
Saturday, April 4

Back by popular demand!  If you missed this trip back in 2017, or want to see them again, join us to tour the beautiful painted churches of Fayette County, built by 19th century Czech and German settlers.  Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, these churches are awash in color, true treasures hand painted with murals and frescoes in Easter egg colors.  While the state has more than 20 of these churches, we will have a guide from the Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce (http://schulenburgchamber.org/tours/churches) taking us through several of the best examples of this unique heritage.   We will break during the tour for lunch at the Oakridge Smokehouse for some traditional food from the area.   Finally, as a special bonus, April 4 is also the Schulenburg SausageFest (https://www.schulenburgsausagefest.com)!  We will stop by after our tour to check out the fun, with local music, crafts, food & refreshment, and of course sample the amazing variety of specialty Czech sausages.  The bus trip, churches tour, and lunch are all included in the price.
