Congratulations Spicewood Fred!

Congratulations to longtime Spicewood resident Fred Paul, on winning the raffle for the guitar autographed by Willie Nelson. Fred’s parents, A.L. (Lee) Paul and Mary Paul, served as EMT’s (Emergency Medical Technicians) in Spicewood years ago. How appropriate for Fred to win it!

And here’s an interesting story on the Willie Nelson signature on the guitar. When Willie went to sign the guitar, a peculiar wrinkle occurred. The pen he had was not working properly when he started to sign, as it wasn’t bright enough on the guitar. He tried to wipe it off, as noted in the above photo. Someone obviously assisted him in replacing the pen. He wrote “Love” over the small smudge, and signed his name underneath it. Thank you Willie!



What a wonderful evening we enjoyed on September 25 at the Firehouse Feast!

The outpouring of love of each individual that volunteered, donated funds and goods is so appreciated! And a huge thanks to the Spicewood community that came to eat delicious barbecue from Texas Firewalkers and sides from Thundercloud Subs, dance to the music of Kim and her Bad Habits, purchase raffle tickets for an autographed Willie Nelson guitar donated by Musicians Woodshed, and bid on our live and silent auction with donations from local businesses.
