2019 was greeted with fireworks at Reunion Tower in Dallas and to a smaller degree in Commerce and Greenville. Daylight dawned cloudy and cold in Eastern Hunt County, but that did not keep several residents from christening the first day of the new year with a flight to Palestine in Cherokee County for lunch.
Russell Armstrong, Financial Advisor from Commerce, said, “I am excited about the new year and the places that we will visit and the new friends that we will meet.” Bill Russell, a student at Texas A&M University at Commerce, said, “2019 can only get better (than 2018).”
Brandon, customer service specialist at McDonald’s, has every intention of “making an effort to go to the gym more often.” Jim Carradine, the nephew of “Uncle Fu” Carradine, said “It is going to be a great year. I will turn 70 in a few months.”
The staff at Hunt County News wishes everyone a happy and prosperous New Year. It is you that has made us successful.
