Greetings and welcome to the Grayson County Historical Society.

There is much afoot at the Historic Jack Thomas House. As you may know, our long time President of fourteen years, Ken Robinson, recently retired. Both he and his wife Nancy have been the pillars of the Society for many years, and they are both very deserving of a break from the hustle and bustle of our organization.

With the new vacancies in the Board of Directors, we have scrambled to get back on track. We have added a table full of new members that we hope everyone will take the time to meet and greet at one of our general meetings or open houses.

Please welcome the 2014 Board of Directors:

President Scott Carter

Vice-President Scotty Gor

Treasurer Tina Gary

Secretary Rose Booth

Board Members Mike Fleener, Joyce Thomas Legg York, Kelly Stevenson, Denise Embry, Rick Alvey, Allison Helm, Eddie Lampton, Jeremy Logsdon, Greg Bernard, and Robert Wright.

We have a diversified group of directors from teachers and archaeologists, to business owners and councilmen, engineers and carpenters, and everyone in between. We have a lot of great ideas, many projects and events planned, and room for anyone who is willing to help.

Please remember, we are a non-profit; none of our directors are paid. We are all here for the love of Grayson County and its history. Our only paid employee is Phyllis Webb our librarian hostess, and her knowledge of the house and library are priceless.

We are not perfect, we make mistakes, but history is full of them!
