La Cima is proud to continue its support of the Mermaid Society of Texas, this year serving as a Supporting Sponsor.
The Mermaid Society of Texas, based in San Marcos, is an emerging, visionary organization whose philosophy is simple: “Lets co-create sustainable, shared wellbeing.” The organization believes in helping to enrich the quality of life for all San Marcans by using arts and culture to celebrate who we are, to tell our stories, to promote community engagement and stronger connections and to instill in our youth guardianship for nature and community. The Mermaid Society is proud of San Marcos’ rich heritage and contributes in the sharing of the city’s many cultural identities. The organization serves as grassroots champions for community stewardship of the San Marcos River, Spring Lake and the preservation of our environment as a whole. The Mermaid Society believes that working in the spirit of collaboration and action will contribute to our social capital, thus together creating a more prosperous and vibrant San Marcos for all.
One of the organization’s largest initiatives is the annual SMTX Mermaid SPLASH, an annual city-wide, multi-event festival, celebrating the city’s arts, culture, heritage and our most precious resource, the San Marcos River. This 15-day festival has something for everyone, and is designed to be an all-inclusive community platform to inspire connection in celebration of our creative community and river culture.
