Two highway signs were erected October 24 direct tourist to the Mason County Museum. Visitors have had problems for a long time finding the Museum or knowing of its existence. Located off the square, information needed to be made known.
Study by the Mason County Museum Committee cumulated into the plan to place signs to promote the Museum. Donations from the Mason Community Foundation, the Lions Club 2007 10K Run, Hochheim Prairie Insurance and the Clayton and Mable Reeves estate, made the venture possible, Negotiations with TexDot and the obstacles of licensing were overcome and the right to place the signs was acquired. Two land owners graciously agreed for use of their land, the Keith and Sue Kaan property on highway 87S and the Norris McMillian property on highway 87 N.
The services of Nail Head Spur Company of Llano resulted in the professional and attractive signs we now have on display.
Plans are now being made for Tannenbaum, to be held November 29 where shoppers may again find those unique Christmas items. A silent auction was introduced to the activities the previous two years and has been supported by donations from Mason County citizens. This high moving sale will once again be a part of the day. Calls will be made across the county for donations toward this event. Look among your possessions for good things you don't need, have two of or perhaps never fit your decor. You could also choose to give a new item with which to support your County Museum. All will go toward the operation of the Museum for next season. Calling will begin November 3. Items should be brought to the Museum at the Historical Building beginning November 20, 21, and 22. The Museum will be open 10 AM to 12 AM and 1 PM to 4 PM.
