The Hays County offices are closed today in honor of Veteran’s Day. The holiday celebrates the dedicated services of veterans who have honorably served the country.

The Veterans Day parade originally scheduled for Saturday, November 7 was canceled due to loss of equipment in the October floods. However, Recreation Programs Manager Lisa Morris says that the City will still honor its veterans, saying “We appreciate the hard work and heroism demonstrated by our police officers, park rangers, firefighters, medics and Parks and Recreation staff during the flood. They continue to work long hours in the aftermath of this disaster when, under happier circumstances, they would be making preparations for our Veterans Day parade.”

To replace the parade, there will be a biscuit and gravy breakfast, with doughnuts, sponsored by Cafe on the Square and Krispy Kreme at the San Marcos Activity Center. The event will be from 8:30-9:30a.m. The City will also honor the Grand Marshals, World War 2 era veteran Frank Auten and Vietnam veteran Guadalupe Flores.

The Texas State University Student Foundation will also hold a commemoration ceremony in the quad. Seating will begin at 10:30a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 10:50a.m. Texas State University student and Navy Vet, Scottie Gordo, says that he is honored by the celebration, after his 21 years of service, saying “We look at our veterans and we say that they did something, but not understanding the sacrifice they had to make to get there. Veterans day is more than just a day. It’s a day of remembrance and people who’ve paved these ways for us.”

Hays County offices will open back up Thursday at normal business hours . For more information can be found at the Hays County website.

Mac wowed the crowd last night at Stubb’s BBQ music venue in Austin for his “Another One” album tour, and left his fans wanting more. The sold-out show gave no disappointment, and a night of extreme jamming to stoner pop tunes gave way. Mac opened […]
