Message from the Mayor of Hurst
I hope you and your family have had a wonderful summer. It was great seeing so many of
you at our recent events; including the Belaire Pop-Up event and Hurst Stars and Stripes! It’s
hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close, and we will soon be thinking about the
upcoming holiday season.
We have many opportunities for you and your family to make the most of the fall and holiday
seasons this year. We offer a wide variety of classes and programs through our Recreation
and Senior Centers, even some new ones you will want to check out! We will have our fall
Heritage Village Presents events starting with Salsa y Salsa in September, our 3rd annual Fall
Festival in October and our annual Christmas Tree Lighting on December 3. We’re also excited
to add a new event this year, a Veteran’s Day Parade! You can find information on all of our
upcoming events throughout this issue and on our website.
We recently celebrated the graduations of this year’s Hurst 101 and Youth In Government
programs! These are excellent programs, and if you’re looking for ways to get involved in the
city and learn more about our budget process and departments, this would be a great place to
start. We will begin accepting applications for next year’s programs later this fall. You can find
out more information on page 18 and 20.
I am proud to work alongside this group of city council members again this year as we
continue to follow our Strategic Plan and make decisions on behalf of our residents. These
decisions affect not only what our short-term goals are, but they have a lasting impact on
what’s to come decades from now, and your input helps shape our future.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones and make some great
memories. I look forward to seeing you at some of our upcoming events!
– Mayor Henry Wilson
