The message below was sent to us by Friends of Garner State Park. As most of you know, Garner is the jewel of the Texas State park system, and is just 8 miles up the road from us.
Garner State Park Official Texas Historical Marker Dedication Ceremony:
1. The dedication ceremony will be held at the Concession Building, Garner State Park, Concan, Texas, February 17, 2008, at 2:00 p.m. Please join us in honoring the Civilian Conservation Corps “boys” (CCCers) who constructed our beautiful park. I will appreciate your passing the word along to others you consider to be interested in attending.
2. I’m still finalizing exact details of the ceremony, but it should unfold as follows:
a. Eagle Scouts will lead the group in the pledge of allegiance to the United States of America and Texas flags.
b. Uvalde County Judge William R. Mitchell will speak.
c. Special guests, such as former CCCers, their descendents, the park manager, etc., will be introduced.
d. CCCers will unveil the marker.
e. Reading of the marker inscription.
f. Short entertainment program (if available).
h. Closing of the ceremony.
i. Invitation to the Tower Room (if available) for refreshments and visiting. (If Tower Room is not available, we will just move to the Covered Porch on the east side of the Concession Building.)
3. Thank all of you who have contributed so much in achieving the marker goal!
4. If you have any questions, please contact me at 830-741-8601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. See you at the Pavilion.

This should be a very interesting ceremony, and will be a great reason to come to the Frio Canyon for a visit. There's a good chance the Mountain Laurel & Agarita may be in bloom by then also.
Below are links to some history of Garner State Park...very interesting.
Well, the beautiful sunny days we were having for the last several weeks are history. Now it's damp, foggy, cool, and expected to get real cold later this week. But who am I to complain, I'm livin here and lovin it!!
I hope all is well with you & yours, and that 2008 is treatin yall ok.
Take care, FrioMan
