Christmas season is a special time in Burnet

The Christmas holiday season brings back a plethora of memories from my childhood as I’m sure it does for many of you.  Those memories somehow help to soothe the hectic pace that is our modern-day experience. I wonder if our parents and grandparents felt the same way in their time. 

Where we hasten to pick out the perfect gift for our loved ones I know my own parents hastened to create the perfect gifts. My mom would sew new clothes, make dolls, and other gifts for us, often starting months ahead of time to get them all done by Christmas.  So maybe what seemed like a slower pace to us kids, for our parents it wasn’t really that much different than what we experience today.


Coffee Talk

Savanna Gregg/Burnet Bulletin


Members of the community joined the Burnet Chamber of Commerce, City of Burnet Mayor Crista Goble Bromley, and County Judge James Oakley at a Breakfast with the Chamber event held at Unshakeable Grounds Thursday, Nov. 21. During the meet-up, Bromley and Oakley discussed happenings in the City and County with their citizens in a friendly environment, in which they enjoyed complimentary coffee and breakfast items.


City projects lending modern appeal to Burnet

The long-awaited Badger Building renovation is finally coming to its conclusion. Wedding Oak Winery is slated to occupy the space in early fall. If you have had a chance to drive by, you will see that the windows are all in and the masonry work is almost complete. Inside, most of the walls are painted, light fixtures are installed and many of the decorative features are either installed or onsite. It will be a wonderful attraction for the square and for Burnet in general. The Burnet Economic Development Corporation (BEDC), and the City of Burnet who assisted with the project, should be proud of this endeavor. Also, many thanks to the Robertson family who donated the building to the BEDC. Once the project is completed, the Jackson Street parking lot will once again be open to the public and will have a connecting pathway to the Vandeveer Street Parking Lot to facilitate ease of access.


Mayor: Business is booming in Burnet

Burnet is booming in a lot of ways but especially economically.   The Burnet Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) along with the City of Burnet and sometimes other partners can be very proud of their accomplishments as well as their plans for additional development.   

Oftentimes citizens see the results of this type of work but may not be aware of the many months, even years, that are invested in making these things happen, not to mention the dollars that it takes to do so.  

An example is the ribbon cutting ceremony that was just held for the improvements to John W. Hoover Parkway which was a partnership between the BEDC, the City of Burnet, the Burnet Industrial Foundation and Burnet County.  


Bluebonnet Festival will bloom soon in Burnet

This year’s State of the Community was a huge success.  If you didn’t make it, save the date on your calendar for next year.  It’s typically on a Wednesday in early March. Watch the Chamber website ( and/or the City website ( for details.
