The commission wishes to thank everyone for coming to the fish fry on Sept. 17, pur- chasing books and T-shirts, and for their generous dona- tions. They also wish to thank all their volunteers and those who donated baked goods for the auction. Also big thanks go to author Rachel Bryson who donated her books to the com- mission to sell. The BCHC is working to place Texas Historical Markers at the entrance to each bridge and to have both labeled as "National Treasures" by the State of Texas and to place both on the "National Register of Historic Places". If anyone would like to purchase T-Shirts or books, there are still some available and maybe ordered on the Burnet County Historical Commission website: https://sites.goo- gle.com/site/burnetcohist- comm/.
