Dedication signs have been placed in the 5300 block of Highway 21 West and near County Road 779 coming from Douglass. Everyone attending the event should meet at the Goyens Hill Baptist Church located at 4740 Highway 21 West. You will be shuttled by the Sheriff’s Office to the ceremony, which is just past the church. To ensure safety, we encourage all citizens to please park at the church. TxDOT and Law Enforcement will provide traffic control during the event.
