Thank you for your help

GREENVILLE — To the editor:

It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville. I had been eager to light up the courthouse for a specialty event for some time.

I started by asking John Horn months ago for his approval for the project. After granting me approval, I had to come up with a plan. Everything just seemed to fall in place.

 I would not have been able to accomplish this without the dedication of John Horn; his assistant, Amanda Blankenship; Jeremy Case and the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office Security Detail, Judge Beacom’s 354 District Court and especially Donna Meeks, Judge Tittle’s 196 District Court; and Cindy Ware.

Most importantly, I would like to express my appreciation for the skills of my former boss and Maintenance Director Jimmy Moore, Scott, Phillip, Sandy, and staff for helping me with the electric detail and lawn sprucing prior to and following the event.

Your efforts are truly appreciated. Also, a shout out to the Hunt County Auditor’s office for winning county office with the most attendance during the Jack Ingram concert!

Lastly, I would like to salute Tim Kruse of “lining the Audie Murphy Overpass with flags fame” for assisting me with technical support, artist and musician David Zvanut of Commerce for donating the lighting equipment, and Milton Babb with the Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and staff, and all of its members and sponsors. You are all awesome and appreciated.

I love assisting Greenville and Hunt County in making our events more technologically advanced and monetarily successful.

Gratefully submitted,

Byron Taylor
