Latest Steady Steps Collectible Ornament Features Cowboy Statue
Wednesday, October 3, 2007 • Posted October 3, 2007

During the last six years, Steady Steps has made a tradition of producing an annual collectible Christmas ornament featuring a Mason landmark. Prior years have displayed images of the courthouse, Fort Mason, the Odeon Theater, the Seaquist Home, etc. This year, the Trail Driver statue on the courthouse lawn is featured.

The ornament will be on sale during the Gem of the Hill Country 10K craft show, around the square on Saturday. It will then go on sale at various retailers around the area later in the month.

The following is the text on the statue.
