2013 arrives with a toast


Cold temperatures and heavy fog didn’t stop the New Year’s Eve activities in Hood County Monday night.

Some partied at Celebration Hall, following a late showing of “Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings” on the stage at Granbury Live. Champagne, refreshments and live music kept the crowd going into the New Year.

Across the street at the courthouse, numerous county officials were sworn-in to office at midnight. The oath of office was given to some on New Year’s Eve, and others on New Year’s Day.
