Grapevine Historical Society 40th Anniversary Celebration and Veteran Recognition Event Saturday May 24
Fun and festivities are in store at the Grapevine Historical Society Sno-Cone Social as they celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Society charter granted by the State of Texas.
The big celebration will take place at 2 p.m. in front of the replica of the “Grapevine Ice Company” building in Ted R. Ware Plaza at Hudgins Street, which will be home for the new Grapevine Historical Museum, even though it will not officially be open to for the occasion.
A proclamation and remarks from Grapevine Mayor Bill Tate will be one of the event highlights along with a program of musical entertainment and presentation of new artifacts for the new museum.
The community is invited to enjoy a trip back in time with memories of the old Snow-Cone stand on Main Street in earlier days as you delight in the taste of shaved ice delight!
The Grapevine Historical Society will also celebrate and pay tribute to our Veterans who served and fought to preserve our freedom in all our wars and conflicts. This will be a wonderful experience for everyone and set the stage for the coming Memorial Day. An invitation was extended to Congressman Kenny Marchant and he or a member of his key staff will be at the event for the salute to veterans. A presentation of a special flag which has flown over the nation’s capital in Washington, D.C. will be awarded to the oldest veteran present at the event.
