Dear Editor:

The Somervell County Heritage Center may be small, but it has a large impact on the lives of the citizens of Glen Rose and the surrounding communities. It is imperative that it be kept open with full-time staffing.

My husband and I have used its genealogy resources for the past six years since our return to the area after retirement. I feel that the Somervell County Heritage Center will be unable to adequately serve the needs of its patrons with volunteer staffing.

Glen Rose is very special to us. My husband's ancestors, the Cavasos family, helped establish the area.

Please continue to keep the Somervell County Heritage Center open with full-time staffing.

Ann King
