September for most of the country means the beginning of Fall. In Southeast Texas, the kids return to their studies and we get to enjoy football again- often in 90 degree weather. There are lots of great activities this September to enjoy as a family from festivals to historical reenactments. We've packed them into this month's calendar. Thank-you to all of our clients and readers for a wonderful summer. Daryl Fant

The Fire Museum of Texas traces the history of fire service in the state of Texas and Beaumont in particular with engaging exhibits, fun hands-on activity areas and the exhibition of historic apparatus. The oldest apparatus in our collection is a 1856 Howe Hand Drawn Tub Pumper. Also on display are a 1909 Ladder truck that was used by the Beaumont fire department and a 1931 REO Light Truck. Designed and built by Beaumont fire department personnel in the historic Beaumont Central Fire Station (current location of the museum) the Light Truck was the first of its kind. It responded to numerous disasters in its 50 year career including the 1937 New London School Disaster and the 1947 Texas City Explosion. The Children's Activity center set the standard for hands-on fire learning displays with its miniature two story house and interactive exhibits that teach children and families about fire safety and what to do in the event of an emergency. The museum offers free tours to schools, home school groups, and Boy and Girl Scout groups. Birthday parties are available, please call or visit our website for more information. The museum is FREE, and donations are accepted. Annual Fire Prevention and Family Safety Festival Date: October 5, 2013. 11-3pm. This event is FREE

Tiger Rock Martial Arts

Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City offers programs that take a true multi-level approach to training children (and adults!). Children who join Tiger Rock Martial Arts Bridge City will learn agility training, their focus will improve, and they will learn to set – and achieve- goals. Tiger Rock Martial Arts also helps students with all other sports. First, all four limbs will be strengthened. In some sports, kids only receive focus on their dominant hand or one leg over the other. Tiger Rock will provide increased strength and agility in all of them. Tiger Rock also improves power. This can pay off in soccer, football, baseball, even dance or gymnastics. Returning to focus, students will learn to “aim” their body effectively. This is a key skill when breaking boards, but it is just important when swinging a bat, kicking a soccer ball, or aiming a volleyball serve into the hardest to defend corner of the court. Tiger Rock Martial Arts does build on a lot of ancient techniques and disciplines, but it also incorporates the latest in sports science. Your child can build strength and stamina year round while being protected from burnout, fatigue, and repetitive stress injuries that plague some other sports. They will learn to train safely and to train effectively without over training. One of the most important things we can help our kids achieve is a sense of self confidence. It will help them in school, as future spouses and parents, and in the workplace. Too many of our kids are shy and insecure. As they see themselves growing in skill, physical fitness, and meeting challenging goals, your child will blossom. In addition, Tiger Rock Martial Arts Bridge City will help your child learn to deal appropriately with bullying, both in the school system and beyond. Tiger Rock Bridge City works closely with Bridge City and Orangefield ISD in this area. They have also teamed up with Bridge City PTA and Orangefield ISD to do a fundraiser. For every new member who enrolls between August 1 and October 15th, 2013 $25 will be donated to either the Bridge City PTA or the Orangefield Student Activity Fund depending on the district the new member attends. Tiger Rock Martial Arts can prepare your child to meet the challenges of the world beyond our community. They can even compete in national and world competitions. Tiger Rock Martial Arts offers many opportunities for students to train to become academy leaders. Those who do may also assume leadership positions in the community outside the academy. 1955 Miller Dr, Bridge City (409) 920-1462 www.TRMAbridgecity.com Please say “I found it in The Kids’ Directory.” Thanks!
