Greetings!
    What time is it?  It's time to register for the 3rd Annual Texas Plains Trail Regional Tourism & Preservation Round-Up.  Being a regional organization, the TPTR Board of Directors has decided to  give other communities within the region an opportunity to host our yearly event.  So after two successful events in Plainview, this year we are excited to be GOING TO POST!   We've listened to your suggestions, and this year's conference will be greater than ever.  The TPTR Organization strives to find ways to market the region on a tightened budget, offer beneficial resources to aid our counties, and creatively bring visitors to this greatest chunk of Texas. Our desire is to share ideas, spark interest, and inspire our communities to join forces with other like-minded entities in the region  to better share our wonderful spaces, places, and faces.  We've come a LONG way...and together...we can get there a lot quicker.   
  
We're very excited to see you in Post,

 Deborah Sue McDonald, TPTR Executive Director
