Recapping 2016 and Excited About 2017
Dear Friends of the Granbury Square,
As 2016 came to a close, I’d like to recap the highlights of the HGMA (The Historic Granbury Merchants Assoc.) year. There were 10 successful events produced and sponsored by HGMA, promoting Granbury, the Square, and tourism –
Gen Granbury’s Birthday celebration (March)
Cruisin’ Granbury Memorial Day Weekend (May)
LakeFest Labor Day Weekend (September)
Granbury Community Carnival (October)
Harvest Moon Festival of the Arts (October)
Country Christmas Parade (November)
Santa’s House ( November – December)
Sip and Shop Thursday Nights (December)
Granbury- A Candlelight Tour (December)
HGMA sponsors “Girls Night Out” every second Saturday of the month, February – December.
HGMA advertises the Historic Business District and special events in the Hood County News, 360 West Magazine, Indulge Magazine, Weatherford Democrat, The Glen Rose Reporter, Cleburne Times-Review, Ft Worth Star Telegram, Tarleton Public Radio, Lake Granbury Area Chamber weekly E-Flash and E-Blast, Show Case Magazine, Granbury Unlimited Marketplace. HGMA, also, actively promoted Social Media Platforms, Face Book, Instagram, Twitter, various online Calendar of Events i.e. DFW Guide Live, Texas Monthly, Texas Highways, and Good2CU text promotions.
HGMA keeps members informed as to what is happening on the Square, at City Hall and Commissioner’s Court. HGMA is also the “voice” of the merchants that is heard better than any other voice.
HGMA creates posters for all events and handout information for point of sale.
We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at Babe’s. 8:30 am, except the 1st of each quarter, there is an evening social meeting with a short business meeting.
Please consider renewing your membership, or joining, if you have not done so. We need your support, ideas and participation! Contact us at 682-936-4550
Happy New Year,
Scott Young, President
Historic Granbury Merchants Association
