A Note From THC

Dear Knox County Visioning Team,

I had the pleasure of meeting with Remelle this week in Austin and she told me about a few of the many exciting projects you all are engaged in - the E-Dreams program for the youth, wow; the new Adventure Country ad campaign, very compelling! You all have become an innovative model in community/tourism development that many others in Texas will want to learn more about.

I think several of the Heritage Tourism staff and regional partners will get to be in your neighborhood this March for the Texas Heritage Lakes Trail board meeting. We hope to visit all of Knox County again and see first hand what you are doing.

A special thanks to the Peppers for sending me a very lovely magnet with images of the tractor and mural art that is part of Knox City's identity. Don't you just love the power of art to inspire and provoke emotional connections to place and people. You guys have it going on and I am proud to know you all!
