Old River-Winfree Founders Day a real blast

State Rep. Mayes Middleton, center, gets ready to fire a reproduction of French Long Naval 8-pound gun with the help of member of the 1st Texas Naval Squadron.

The annual Founders Day in Old River-Winfree gave plenty of patrons a chance to partake in various distractions and learn a little bit about history on a beatific Saturday afternoon with hundreds of people enjoying the festivities.

Music, food and plenty of odds and ends to purchase were available throughout the day as kids enjoyed the activities to burn off energy and others took the time to take in a few opportunities to learn about the years that came before today.
