Businesses in San Marcos see their ‘shadows’ Feb. 2

Groundhog Day didn’t reveal any more about the weather than local residents already know — fruit trees are budding out, and there’s likely to be one more freeze coming.

But the day did bring other insights. Groundhog Day is when San Marcos High School students leave the campus to visit local shops and learn about the real world of business.

This year some 22 businesses including the San Marcos Daily Record participated, and all shadow shops and students were treated to lunch by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce.

16 teams vy for quidditch title

Donavan Jackson - News Intern

Sixteen collegiate clubs showed up to San Marcos last Saturday to compete against one another.

Were they here for soccer? No. Lacrosse? Not quite.

All 16 clubs were up bright and early for the fifth annual quidditch Diamond Cup.

It has been 20 years since J.K. Rowling introduced the world to Harry Potter. Seven books and nine films later, we are surrounded by the world of magic.

Harry Potter has made its way to universal studios, Broadway stages around the world and most recently, the quidditch pitch.

Spring Break Camp returning

The school break is quickly approaching and can be stressful for working parents to find childcare. 

The city of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department encourages residents and non-residents to take advantage of Spring Break Camp, March 13-17 from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the San Marcos City Park Recreation Hall.

Dentistry with a Heart returns with free dental care Feb. 10

Dr. Donnelly and San Marcos Gentle Dental will host its 4th annual Dentistry From The Heart-For the Love of Chance event – providing a free day of dental care to more than 75 residents.  

As a growing number of Americans lack dental insurance, Donnelly believes this is a great way to address many health problems and give back to the community.  At last year’s event, San Marcos Dental provided more than 70  people in the community with free dentistry valued in excess of $30,000.  The goal is to provide dental treatment to even more of those in need this year.
