The regular season begins on January 26, 2023, when Boerne will host the BRITISH INVASION – LIVE ON STAGE as this popular musical group recreates the songs that made up the musical tidal wave known as the British invasion that began with the introduction back in February 1964 of The Beatles to television audiences and the bands that soon followed. The musical scene and songs that emerged from that era will entertain audiences with hits from the Rolling Stones, Dave Clark 5, the Animals, and of course, The Beatles. February 24, 2023, brings a rare opportunity for arts lovers with the colorful sights, percussive sounds, and fancy footwork of the ROYAL NATIONAL DANCE COMPANY from the country of Georgia. Performing the “Fire of Georgia,” this visually thrilling dance troupe combines Georgian folk dances and a modern attitude with exquisite costumes to artfully blend the professional devotion of classically trained dancers with the unique expression through choreography of the traditional dances from the Caucasus region of Asia. They beautifully and powerfully illustrate why dance meets no language barriers in telling the stories of a people and its traditions as they dance, soar and twirl through a riveting performance covering every inch of the stage. Finally, to complete the season, on March 24, 2023, THE PEKING ACROBATS leap and thrill their way into town as they astound, amaze, and amuse in a performance that epitomizes family fun!

A Play Park wi th a Mission by Lauren Stumberg

Swing, slide, jump, climb and play! If you are looking for a place to let your kids burn off some energy this summer (or all year round) Arrows Active Play Park is the place. Arrows offers local families a safe, secure, clean and adventure-filled indoor playground where children ages 6 months - 12 years old can be active and explore. From celebrating birthdays to reconnecting with friends, Arrows was created for fun, food and fellowship for the whole family. Founded by Will and Katrina Ansell, the mission of Arrows Active Play Park is to serve families while pointing their children to the only true source of hope, Jesus. “Raising kids can be tough!” said William Ansell, “The pace of life we are expected to live is fast, busy and often overwhelming. We created Arrows Active Play Park to give parents a place to have purposeful

engagement with their children and make the most of their time with their kids. We want more children turning away from the screens and towards each other!” So how exactly did Arrows come to be? The Ansells found themselves living in Boerne after following Will’s job here about seven years ago. Once here, Will’s company underwent a restructure, followed shortly by an acquisition, and this caused some uncertainty around their future in Boerne. According to Katrina, “We KNEW we wanted to stay in this beautiful little town and weren’t ready to follow Will’s job to another city. The best way we could think of to secure our home in Boerne was to start a business. But what would that be, exactly?” This is where the Ansells dug deep and began the process of figuring out what their next steps looked like. Around this same Katrina and Will Ansell, Founders of Arrows Active Play Park

time they found themselves becoming more and more involved in their local church. “Our children’s ministry was desperately in need of volunteers to help out with all of the kids, so I decided to offer a helping hand and absolutely fell in love. Of course, I have always loved my own kiddos more than life itself, but it wasn’t until this point that I understood just how important it was to me to be able to serve kids and parents within my community. I extended this passion outwards and got involved with a local chapter of the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPs) community. The connection, support, and understanding I was able to provide in this group was life-changing,” said Katrina, “It’s from these experiences that Will and I started to explore the idea of working with children in some capacity.” With this in mind, Will and Katrina reflected on everything that was important to them: faith,

family, community, and serving parents. And from this, an idea was born! They started exploring the possibility of establishing a faith-oriented, parent-friendly play park in Boerne that would allow them to serve the community and remain in the place they loved the most. “It was during this time that God laid Psalm 127:3-5 on my heart,” said Katrina, “Children are a heritage to the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like Arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. That was it – Arrows!” Once the name, Arrows Active Play Park, came to light things moved fast! In 2018, they took a big leap of faith and bought the land and started finalizing details for the park. Things were beginning to unfold, their plans were in the final stages and they had set an official open date in April of 2020. But then came the pandemic and put a halt to it all. “We truly believe that God's timing was perfect because if we had opened any earlier, we’re not sure we would have been able to support the business throughout the pandemic. God was present in every part of our journey to get continued on page 18

where we are today. As we reflect on the rocky beginnings of Arrows amidst the pandemic, we understand that God was not telling us ‘no’. He was telling us, ‘not yet,’” added Will. Fast forward a year, and in April 2021, the Ansells held Arrows grand opening with their nearest and dearest friends and family! Since opening, Arrows has rewritten the normative experience surrounding indoor parks into one that is enjoyable and relaxing for the whole family. When most people think about indoor playgrounds, plenty of negative words and emotions come to mind. Loud. Dirty. Expensive. Chaotic. But not at Arrows! Katrina and Will have worked hard to create an environment that is welcoming to busy families. Not only are safety and cleanliness at the top of the priority list, but Arrows offers a one-of-a-kind design with every detail handpicked by Katrina and Will. The space was even designed with 6-foot clearances so parents can engage and play alongside their children! The space is 8,600 square feet, 3 levels high and complete with multiple party rooms that stretch across the length of the entire building! The indoor playground has fun features like the Ball Blast area with eight air guns and a canon where kids can battle it out with soft foam balls, the Maze which is complete with obstacles, tunnels, slides, climbing bars and more, and the Racer Slides where you can race six at a time down a rainbow of two-story slides! Need even more excitement? Try out the Track Racer where you can race your neighbor across the desert at high speed or the Warrior Course where a mixture of obstacles will challenge your balance and strength!

Most of all, we are overwhelmed by all the ways in which we have been able to serve our community through Arrows.” BBM

Plaxel Plasma Pen Fibroblasting


Revolutionary Skin Tightening without Surgery

As we age we all deal with saggy skin. Maybe it’s those pesky forehead lines, under eye bags or even the skin under your arms or on your knees – but is it really worth the time, money and risk to undergo surgery to do something about it? For most people the answer is no. The good news is that with all the recent medical and technological advancements, plastic surgery is no longer the only answer. The Plaxel Plasma Fibroblasting Pen is a revolutionary device that can tighten sagging skin without having to go under the knife! At The Cottage Door they offer Plaxel Plasma Pen treatments which is a true plasma system. These treatments lift and tighten loose, crepey skin to improve fine lines, wrinkles and more. Plaxel Plasma Pen Fibroblasting is ideal for: • Eyelid tightening/nonsurgical blepharoplasty • Improving undereye bags and wrinkles • Skin tightening of the neck and body (arms, knees, stomach) • Improving expression lines and wrinkles such as smile lines, crows feet, smokers lines, forehead lines, frown lines and more • Improving scars and stretchmarks So how does Plasma work to tighten skin? Plasma is the fourth state of matter. A liquified gas that does not exist naturally, but can be created under specific circumstances by ionizing oxygen. The Plaxel Pen creates plasma sparks that jump from the handpiece to the skin – the pen never actually touches the skin – and stimulates fibroblasts deeper in the dermis to produce collagen. When the tiny plasma sparks enter the skin, they sublimate epidermal skin cells and turn them from solids into gases. This leaves behind a dot of carbon. Skin damage is minimized because the heating is controlled and uniform due to the nature of plasma. When this happens it causes instant tightening! It also stimulates fibroblasts to begin producing collagen and increases blood flow to the treatment area. The final tightening results are visible in about 8-12 weeks. Does it hurt? Numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure so it should not hurt. After the treatment, once the numbing wears off you may have a sunburn like feeling for about 24 hours.


B oerne B usiness M onthly | May 2022

What will the healing process look like? Initially the dots from the treatment will be invisible and the skin will be reddish. In about 24-48 hours the dots will form crusts that will be brownish color. These dots will stay on the skin for approximately 5-7 days. It is crucial to the healing process that the dots are allowed to fall off on their own. Aftercare products will be provided to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment. It is important to note that not all “plasma pen” devices are the same. Many are actually electric pens which burn the skin’s surface and do not actually create plasma. It is recommended that you only receive treatment with a true plasma pen to achieve safe, effective results.BBM To find out more about this treatment or to see if you are a good candidate, contact Claudia at The Cottage Door for your free consultation. or (210) 570-5416 103 E.

“Where experience and service make the difference”


B oerne B usiness M onthly | May 2022


Many Texans have received notices this month that their properties appraised much higher this year than last. Such increases often leave property owners expecting exorbitantly high property tax bills the following year, but an economist with the Texas Real Estate Research Center (TRERC) at Texas A&M University says that’s a misconception. "Many factors complicate how property taxes are calculated, but by and large the increases in property appraisals being reported vastly overstate the average increases in property tax bills that should be expected next January," said TRERC Research Economist Dr. Adam Perdue. Texas’ appraisal districts are required to appraise all real property at fair market value each year, which Perdue said typically leads to manageable and understandable increases in tax appraisals. TRERC’s Texas

real estate

This year’s high property appraisals overstate tax bill increases for many

Home Price Index showed a 3 percent average annual increase in statewide market value from 2007 to 2019, peaking at 7.6 percent between January 2013 and January 2014. However, in 2020 the average increase was over 9 percent, and in 2021 it hit a record high of almost 20 percent. But in the case of such unusually high appraisals across the board, the appraisal process is only the first step in calculating the tax bill. "The second step is deciding on the tax rates," Perdue said, "and these are largely determined by the cost of providing voter-approved government services." Tax rates are recalculated each year. After giving property owners the opportunity to protest the initial property valuations, the appraisal district submits the valuations of all properties to the local taxing jurisdictions which then calculate a tax rate that yields the revenue necessary to continue running the government services voters have requested and approved. "In an ideal scenario, where voters were happy with the previous tax bills and level of government services, even a 20 percent increase in average taxable valuations could be exactly offset with a 17 percent cut in the tax rate and yield the same tax bill for the same level of service, holding everything else constant," Perdue said. Perdue said many other complicating factors figure into the process. For example, the homestead exemption limits growth in taxable value to 10 percent per year, slowing the growth rate of homesteaded properties’ tax bills. An over-65 homestead exemption places a ceiling on the amount qualifying homeowners have to pay in school taxes (the primary component of property taxes). "Relative differences in value increases will still impact your tax bill,' Perdue said. "If your value increased more or less than average, then your bill may increase more or less than average." He said property owners also need to remember that any tax rate that would increase total revenues from existing properties by more than 3.5 percent must be approved by voters under state law.

6 Ways to Use Small Business Loans

Here at United Texas Credit Union, we are proud to offer small business loans to our entrepreneurial members at affordable interest rates and easy eligibility requirements. Here are six popular ways to use a small business loan. 1. Use small business loans for everyday operations Running a business can cost a pretty penny. With responsibilities for covering payroll, to funding daily operations, to paying the rent, there are always new expenses cropping up. A small business loan can help your company cover the unforeseen, as well as stay afloat during its slower seasons. 2. New equipment Purchasing new equipment and machinery can help your business save on everyday expenses by increasing efficiency, but that initial outlay can also cost your business. A small business loan can help make the necessary purchases affordable. 3. Use small business loans for inventory Every retail business needs to keep its inventory well-stocked and in high demand to stay in the game. Sometimes, though, a business will find it challenging to keep up with inventory if the previous stock didn’t sell as well as anticipated or the business is going

through an especially slow season. A small business loan can help keep up with inventory during these times. 4. Debt consolidation Keeping up with monthly payments on outstanding debt while staying on top of other expenses can be difficult for a struggling small business. A small business loan can enable a small business to refinance or consolidate their debt into lower-interest and fixed monthly payments. 5. Marketing campaigns Having a fantastic business model is not enough to make it prosperous; people need to know you exist. Without the right kind of marketing, a business can be invisible to the public; but ad space, branding, commercials and more can be enormously expensive. Let a small business loan help you get your hands on the capital you need to run a marketing campaign that drives real results. 6. Expansion and growth Sometimes, a great opportunity for growth can present itself to a business, but the cost of funding it is prohibitive. A small business loan can help a business secure the funds it needs to grow to its full potential. BBM

If you are ready to take out a business loan or a new business line of credit, we can help! Our business loans and the lines of credit feature favorable rates and easy terms. Call, click or stop by United Texas Credit Union today to secure the funds you need to grow your business. | 1440 S. Main Street – Boerne, Texas
