Pioneer Days
PIONEER DAYS 2013
While the weather did not lend itself to large numbers of people coming to this year's Pioneer Days, the people who did brave the elements were treated to a different kind of event.
There was BUTTERMILK JUNCTION performing their acoustic music in the Nolan River One Room School. There were historians in the Stage Station, Courthouse and Nolan River School holding people spellbound with stories of days gone by. Terry's Texas Rangers even fired a cannon or two and The Ghost of Buzzard Flats had a gunfight to the delight of those who came out.

RAFFLE WINNER!!!
At 5:30 PM on Saturday eight year old Brian Depaiva, from Keene, drew the winning ticket # 0168 which belonged to the lucky Paul Adlof from McKinney. Paul and his wife Shelly came back to Cleburne on Monday and met with John Schultz, the gunsmith who prepared this years gun. They all met at the Cleburne Courthouse to transfer ownership of the rifle and have their picture made with John Schultz, Randolph Garner, President of Johnson County Heritage Foundation and David Murdoch who sold Paul the ticket. The reason they met at the Courthouse is Paul was the man who removed the stone from the Courthouse to recover the Time Capsule on Nov. 16 and purchased $50. worth of Raffle Tickets.
CONGRATULATIONS PAUL!!!

This is what Paul won.
