Statues all over the state of TEXAS serve to focus our attention on our rich heritage and proud history. None stands taller than our own San Jacinto monument. One of our local students has made a wonderful model for your thoughtful consideration and it along with dozens of others will be on display inside the Hood County courthouse over the week-end.San Jacinto

CourthouseNo countyseat in the state of Texas has a more majestic and beautiful courthouse than Hood County. Tonight it takes on even more of a majestic presence as the flag of our state surrounds that very building. Each flag pole proudly and honorably bears the name of one of the fallen heroes of the Alamo. Thanks to all who have had a hand in this important phase of this year’s event. Your efforts and your undying devotion to our state will not go un-appreciated. Take the kids and grandkids up to the flags and let them read and learn from the attached cards that tell a story like none other.

In four short days and nights, Buck and his stagecoach will hit town. Coming with him will be his wife, and the team of nip and tuck.

There is no truer hero of the Alamo era than David Crockett. David Crockett was a, farmer, hunter, marksman, frontiersman, author, and representative to the United States Congress. Born in Greene County, Tennessee on August 17, 1786, Crockett left his mark wherever he traveled. He married Elizabeth Patton in 1815, and forged his way to the point of no return….the Alamo on February 8, 1836. Eye witness accounts place his death inside the Alamo on March 6, 1836. Texas will forever be in debt to the family of David Crockett for his meritorius service on behalf of our state. Help us honor him the week-end of March 2nd and 3rd in Granbury, TX. A special memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 3rd at the gravesite of Mrs. Elizabeth Crockett in ACTON. That service will begin at 1:00 PM.574578_159968320823103_36908177_n
