Thank you for help laying my son to rest

My son Beau Allen Nichols was killed in a motorcycle accident on Oct. 11, 2012. I want to thank everyone for their help in laying my son to rest.

I want to thank Boozers and Shallowater for the benefit. I want to thank all that showed for the bike rally. It was a great tribute to my son.

I want to thank all the locations that allowed us to put out jars for his donations which was Tommy’s, Broadway, La Fiesta, Cici’s, Firehouse Cafe, Ron’s, Willie & Dick’s, Rent-A-Center, Saddlebags BBQ, Joe’s Pasta and Longhorn.

I want to thank all the businesses who donated on our walks which consisted of the square, Hwy. 377, Pearl & Morgan.

Also thanks to all the customers who donated when they heard us speaking.

Thanks to all who fed us in our walks and at my son’s home.

I also want to thank all who donated to the memorial fund at Compass Bank.

I want to thank the Relief Society Sisters, Granbury Cheerleading Booster Club, Granbury New Car Dealers Association, but most of all Martin’s Funeral Home (Dwight) who helped lay my son to rest with honor. I also wish to thank Mark Forrest who performed my son’s service.

I truly am blessed to be a part of this town. My son was truly loved and will be missed by all.

Darlene Franks and family, Granbury

 

A great place to shop and be entertained!

Congratulations to Hood County! This past weekend, the heart and soul of our community, the Historic Hood County Courthouse, was rededicated and officially reopened.

Many thanks to Judge Cockerham and Commissioners Berry, Roan, Heathington and Simpson, whose hard work has resulted in possibly the most beautiful and impressive courthouse in Texas!

Concurrent to the rededication, was the annual Harvest Moon Festival and HALO (Hood Co Animal Lovers Organization) – Bow Wow Trick or Treat.

The Square and the City Hall plaza were bustling with over 10,000 visitors during the weekend. For over 30 years, HGMA (Historic Granbury Merchants Association), the city of Granbury and Hood County have partnered to host six annual festivals per year. Thanks to all involved!

Coming up, the day after Thanksgiving, is the Lighted Country Christmas Parade, co-hosted by HGMA and the Ministerial Alliance. The first weekend of December is HGMA’s 29th annual Candlelight Tour of Homes.

Granbury, what a great place to live, shop and be entertained! Please support Main Street USA. Come to the Square, shop local, Granbury and Hood County, and have a wonderful holiday season!

Scott Young

President

Historic Granbury Merchants Association
