Thank you to our Wonderful Sponsors

TID2015-1Dear sponsors, I would like to thank you for sponsoring the Texas Independence Day fair. The money that I earned is going towards college and for future investments in my schooling. I hope you sponsor this day as well as many other Texas day events in the future to support our young adults with futures in Texas as well as the world.

Thank you

TID2015-60Thank you again for putting on the Texas Independence Day Celebration and the Student History Competition. I really liked working on my art project and studying about the history of Texas. I was born in Fort Worth but my parents are from California and Canada. Texas is so different from both Canada and California, but I love living here. I appreciate winning prize money for my project and have put it away towards my college fund. I am looking forward to being a part of the history competition again this year. I hope my friends enter some of their projects too.
Thank you, Keri Kittleson

John Coffee Hays

list-texas-rangers-hays-ESan Antonio in 1837, John Coffee Hays came from Tennessee Hays shortly after Texas won its independence from Mexico. By 1841, he was a Texas Ranger captain at twenty years of age. A fearless fighter and skilled leader, Hays became famous for defending Texans against raids from  Native American (Comanche) and Mexican bandits. Hays would come to symbolize the Rangers of the Texas Republic era. In Mexican War (1846-48), Hays’ Rangers scouted, defended U.S. supply and communication lines from attacks by Mexican guerrillas and fought alongside regular U.S. army troops. He earned a national reputation for their bravery.

The Texas Heroes Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization with goals to educate and involve children in Texas history. Our mission statement is: It’s All About Texas!

The vehicle that we have used to spark that interest has been the Texas Independence Day Events of North Texas in Hood County. The Texas Heroes Foundation (THF) invites you to “Stroll Through Texas History” on March 2, 2016 from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM, beginning at Acton Baptist Church at 3500 Fall Creek Hwy in Acton. Children can meet Texas Heroes, portrayed by the THF Team, partake in Elizabeth Crockett Memorial Ceremony, make period crafts, see black powder demonstrations, enjoy period music & performing art winners, view the Student History Fair, vote on People’s Choice Award and more.
The cost of time and finances needed to invest in our children’s interest in Texas is high. The Texas Heroes Foundation has given almost $15,000 to students in the last few years for their project-studies in Texas history. In addition to student scholarships, other significant expenses include supplies, school packets, advertising/marketing and special events and presentation. Presentations of historical music, musicians and cultural demonstrations by Native Americans, Frontiersmen, ranching and bull riding . This is where we hope you might join us. We are asking for your support so that this event can continue to grow and meet the goal of getting our kids interested in preserving the rich heritage of Texas History.
Please look over the attached Sponsorship Levels and see if you can contribute to the worthy cause of maintaining the knowledge of Texas history. It starts with our kids… and You.

Thank you,
