Greetings! we come!  I know it's barely arrived, but  we have so much in store for the upcoming year.  Look for future newsletters to keep you on top of all the projects that the Texas Plains Trail Region's enthusiastic Board of Directors and I are tackling.  Our continued mission is to find ways to market and promote the 52-Counties of the region. Need a speaker? Have an idea to help regional heritage tourism?  Let us know how we can better serve you.  We value your support and interest in making this the greatest place to live and visit.

Happy Trails,
