I know I speak for everyone when I say WELCOME 2021! We’ve been waiting! Last year was one for the record books, but if I have learned one thing about this great community, it’s that Snyder is no stranger to taking the good with the bad! Resilient, down to earth and hard working are just a few of the characteristics I see every time I’m out and about. Stay the course Snyder, the best is yet to come!
I hope you enjoy this issue as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. There are a ton of great stories showcasing what makes Snyder such a great place to live!
We will be delivering extra copies each month, so if you want to request extra copies for your business, just call our office and we will put you on the list! Also, feel free to drop by the Chamber of Commerce downtown and grab some extra copies there!
Our family loves all things outdoors, which includes hunting. We strive to teach our children to be responsible and respectful. This is the idea behind our new section Hometown Huntin’. We invite all of you to share your outdoors photos with us this season. Whether it’s a dove hunt with the boys, youth weekend, or the buck of a lifetime, we know hunting is about so much more than the harvest. It’s about enjoying God’s great outdoors and sharing the experience with others and taking the time to get away. As the adage says, your kids won’t ever remember their best day watching television. So whether you go for a hunt or go for a hike…just go.
Another year behind us and a fresh slate is before us. Instead of focusing on the traditional resolutions, let’s each instead resolve to BE PRESENT; thankful for where we live and the advantages it brings.
Let us choose to focus on all the good. For anyone who has ever watched Pollyanna you’ll remember the basis for her positive outlook no matter what life brought her way was to be glad. ‘If you look for the bad, you’re sure to find it, but if you look for the good it is there too.’ So let’s resolve to look at the bright side, be glad, and live in the now.
We so appreciate the warm welcome we received after our first issue of Snyder Lifestyles hit the street last winter! We are thrilled to showcase yet another coffee table quality magazine containing features of neighbors and organizations succeeding and making Snyder even better than before.
One such triumph is in the milestone celebrated by WTC beginning fifty years ago in ‘Success for Westerners.’ The founder’s goal of creating a college for rural West Texans rang true as a welcoming version of higher education. My older brother attended WTC in the ‘90’s and loved every minute. I think his only complaint was that he couldn’t stay there longer. A sentiment shared by many undergraduates I’m sure.
