Home On The Range
We are getting excited about Home on the Range! It's less than a month away now!
On Saturday, June 8th, pack up your family and time travel with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame. The first stop on your adventure is the Texas frontier in the 1870s. What did the early Rangers cook and eat in the field? How did Ranger clothes and gear help them get the job done? The Texas Top Guns will demonstrate skills Rangers needed to survive on the frontier and as early law enforcement officers. Demonstrations will include chuck wagon cooking, branding, roping, leather working, and rope making.
Texas Top Guns activities include roping (above), discussion of tools and weapons (left), cooking biscuits from the chuck wagon (right)
Then, flash forward two centuries to the life of today‚Äôs Texas Rangers at a  Texas Ranger Talk!    At 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, Texas Ranger Major Corey Lain, Co. "F," will discuss their training and responsibilities, law enforcement in the 21st century, and answer your questions. This is a rare opportunity to meet Rangers from two centuries and make priceless memories.
