TMRS Keeps Growing
The cities of Horseshoe Bay, Aurora and Palm Valley became the newest cities to join TMRS on December 1. The additions bring TMRS’ total participating cities to 918.
The City of Horseshoe Bay rests along Lake LBJ and the southern branch of the Colorado River in the Texas Hill Country. Located in Wise County, Aurora bills itself, “a legendary western town” due to its role in one of the most famous UFO sightings in US history. The City of Palm Valley located in Cameron County is home to the Harlingen Country Club retreat.
TMRS Welcomes Three New Participating Cities
TMRS adds three new participating cities in November: Rio Hondo, Saint Hedwig, and Beverly Hills.
The Cameron County city of Rio Hondo is home to its iconic Yellow Bridge, which is the only lift bridge built in Texas between 1945 and 1960 and is still in operation today. The eastern Bexar County city of Saint Hedwig was settled by immigrants from upper Silesia in Prussian Poland. By 1890, this farming community was the largest Polish community in Texas. Finally, the City of Beverly Hills, located near Waco in McLennan County, proudly touts itself as “A Small City with Big Heart.”
With these additions, TMRS now has 915 participating cities.
