Sesquicentennial Celebration Team thanked by City Council

Mayor Jim Jarratt asked the leadership of the Sesquicentennial Celebration Team to be recognized at the Dec. 7 City Council meeting. He said, "Our community has a great history filled with many significant events, but you only get one chance at a celebrating a sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of the founding of Granbury. The people standing here, and dozens of others, made our Sesquicentennial a fantastic occasion.

--They did an outstanding job retelling our history in an informative and entertaining way, 

--They provided music, poetry, art, re-enactments, food, and a one-of-a-kind laser show that “wow-ed” everyone who saw it,  

--They engaged people of all ages, including the youngest generation of Texans, and they appealed to Granbury residents and visitors, alike.

A large planning team put the Sesquicentennial event together; led by Tammy Dooley, Vicki Risinger, Scott Young, Jack Martin, James Dickens, and Ron Sutton.

They were supported by leadership from the City, the County, the Merchants Association, and many others who are passionate about Granbury’s past and present. Would you join me in thanking all of them? 

The Sesquicentennial celebration is complete, but it will have a legacy itself. During the event, through Christmas ornament sales and very generous donors, ten thousand dollars was raised for the Snider Cabin Preservation Project. Those funds will go toward rebuilding and preserving the Cabin. That means in fifty years, at Granbury’s Bicentennial Celebration, new generations can not only read about, but see and touch a piece of the community’s history.

Again, thank you all for your leadership and contributions that made our Sesquicentennial a great event!
