Some people are counting down the IRS tax deadline, but the Hill Country Trail Region is counting down the launch of a brochure. This brochure is the final one of the Heritage Trails based on the 10 scenic driving trails created in 1968 by Governor John Connally and the Texas Department of Transportation.
The celebration of this brochure was awarded to Uptown Blanco Arts and Entertainment. The Leadership committee for this celebration consists of the Blanco County Historical Committee - Chair Nell Krueger, the Blanco Historical Preservation Commission - Chair Linda Howard, Uptown Blanco Arts and Entertainment - Director Mary Johnson, and the Texas Hill Country Region coordinator - Ann Branson for the Texas Historical Commission. Under the four ladies’ leadership, arrangements have been made to provide entertainment and food for approximately 300 invited guests, after the launching of the brochure.
Linda Howard was very pleased that the Jeremy Miller Band is going to perform an original song written especially for this occasion. Other entertainment will be a reenactment by the former Texas Rangers and Camp Cookie with his stories and songs.
Blanco County restaurants, catering services, and vendors will be serving a taste of Blanco County to the guests. Dennis Moore has promised chuck-wagon food of beans, chili, and cornbread.
Blanco County and the City of Blanco will send this brochure off the launch pad with the hospitality of the Hill Country and the friendliness of its people. What a great start!
Brochures for the different trails are available at the Blanco Library and will soon be available at the Chambers of Commerce in Blanco and Johnson City.
