At last - 'Welcome to Bandera'

It took private enterprise to do what city government seemed unable, or unwilling, to accomplish - offer a "Welcome to Bandera" to the municipality's lifeblood, tourists. Russell Hevenor, owner of Hevenor Lumber on 16 South, recently installed a lighted, scrolling sign that includes a warm welcome to those visiting the Cowboy Capital of the World. Additionally, Hevenor uses the sign to publicize local fundraisers, returning members of the military and other community-centric activities.
The Courier extends a heartfelt thanks to Hevenor for his civic-minded contribution to the community.
