The Texas Plains Trail Roundup was held in Post on August 15 & 16 and brought 100 out-of-town visitors to town, thanks to the hard work of the Caprock Cultural Association. The conference kicked off on Monday evening with a reception at the Heritage House featuring wagon rides through town which included a hold up by "armed" bandits on horseback. Following the reception everyone was treated to a live concert at the Garza Theatre hosted by Post City Celebrations, Inc. Tuesday's meeting was full of information about tourism and the value it is to our area. It was a great two days. Everyone left Post impressed with our community and all we have to offer.
