A heartfelt thank you to Representative David Simpson for his celebration of the contributions of Abel P. Upshur to the protection of our Constitutional freedom last Saturday night at Silver Alley Event Hall in Gilmer.
Harry and I enjoyed hearing from everyone, as well as east Texas favorites Representative Bryan Hughes of House District 5 and Representative Matt Schaefer of House District 6.
From great speakers, to the exceptional emcee Jeff Rash, to the beautiful music by the Perkin’s family, it was an enjoyable evening to share with family and good friends.
Finally, thank you for sharing so much interesting history about our beloved Upshur County. I especially enjoyed learning Gregg County was Upshur County first. I cannot wait to tease, I mean share that information with my precious Gregg County family and friends.
