The Gonzales Convention and Visitors Bureau (GCVB) board of directors voted to allocate up to $2,500 in funding for signs welcoming the Sisters on the Fly to Gonzales. Calling itself the “largest women’s social organization in the United States,” Sisters on the Fly is a women’s adventure group with only one rule: “no men, no kids, be nice and have fun.”
The sisters are planning to venture down to Gonzales the week of Sept. 28 through Oct. 6. Roughly 650 women in campers will descend upon Gonzales for a week of outdoor adventure that coincides the city’s Come and Take It Celebration.
The signage, which simply says “Welcome Sisters on the Fly,” was originally meant to be placed in the windows of downtown businesses to promote shopping and dining, however the GCVB opted to place the signs not only downtown, but all over the city.
