Happy Founders Day Burleson TX

Founded on this day, October 10th 1881, Burleson began when the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad planned a railroad from Fort Worth to Hillsboro in 1881 and established a depot on the townsite. In it’s first fifty years Burleson was a stable community organized around agriculture and livestock raising. By 1890 it had a population of 200, grocers, druggists, a general store, and several cotton gin-gristmills. Ten years later the community had a newspaper, the Burleson Banner, and an artesian well and waterworks that supplied water to area homes and businesses. In 1899 Burleson shipped 2,000 bales of cotton, eighty cars of wheat and oats, and thirty cars of cottonseed. (courtesy of The Texas State Historical Association)

Sonny is a huge supporter of Cook Children’s Hospital and the Cara Young Fish for Life, a 510(c)3 Foundation and we appreciate his service to the community and our kids. Speaking of Burleson TX, we also have a Cook Children’s Pediatrics as well!

Wanted to share a message I received from one of my clients, she beautifully sums up why we do what we do, giving the Lord ALL the thanks, praise and glory…

Steve, My prayers are with you as you prepare for Cara’s Fish for Life event this weekend. May God grant you much success in this worthy endeavor that honors Cara’s life, proclaims your own life of faith and service, and seeks to help other children have a healthy future.Fish4Life ck9-26-13
