About the Initiative

As an exemplary Hill Country community, Boerne is dedicated to service, excellence, integrity, respect, and collaboration.

By contributing to these qualities, our residents and city staff can remain committed to showing everyone the true Heart of Boerne. Through this initiative, our goal is to encourage the community to be active participants in our successes and help us highlight how they are giving back.

What to Expect

Via the City of Boerne social media platforms we want to spark conversations, educate and engage our community, connect with our audience, and further build on our digital relationships. Through this initiative we will help share the many wonderful things our community is doing to help make it so special in an authentic and honest way.

How to Participate/Submit

We see the Heart of Boerne on display every day around town. Help us highlight the good in the community by completing the submission form at the bottom of this page. Be sure to include any accompanying pictures for us to share on our digital platforms.
