The Chamber Board voted to approve a ‘Gonzales Pendant’, pictured at left, at their meeting Wednesday, following the recommendation of the Come & Take It Association for a special piece to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the firing of the first shot for Texas independence in Gonzales County on Oct. 2, 1835.
It features a western hat atop a G, with a cannon in the curve of the letter and a Texas star in the wheel. Paul Neuse of Storey Jewelers had it designed and it can be seen there or at the chamber office. It could be used as a charm or another piece of men’s or women’s jewelry.

It has been brought to our attention that a local business recently received a bill from a mapping company for an ad. The person in charge called Texas Trails Maps, the chamber’s official mapping company and asked if they had sent this bill. The Texas Trails’ manager said no, they never mail these, they give a pink invoice when personally contacting the businesses. Please make sure you are paying for an ad you have actually approved. This may be a scam to get money for a service that was not delivered.
