When downtown Georgetown shut down in March, Rachel Hancock used her paintbrush to help bring it back to life.
As she watched businesses close their doors, her heart went out to the owners and workers of the Square’s boutiques, stores and restaurants. Many of them she knew as friends. “How are they going to make it through this?” she wondered.
Many activities throughout the world have been put on hold because of coronavirus – 24/7 care for people with dementia isn’t one of them.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is set for October 10th 2020.
Marisol’s Mexican Grill will spice up Georgetown starting around July 7. It will replace Italian restaurant Bella Sera at 603 West University Avenue, Suite 110 off Highway 29. The restaurant is family owned and run, with Marisol and Ismael Sanchez at the helm of the business.
“Hello Georgetown” is the best publication to come along to keep all Georgetown residents informed. It is a great way to cure our curiosity. People like to know what is happening in our town, whether it be entertainment, fun-filled events for the family, road improvements to move traffic, construction of new commercial and residential development.
“You take the guess work out of all that’s happening. Thank you for this publication and keeping us in the know.” ~Maryanne Denison

The Golden Rule Restaurant Opening Soon in Georgetown
We spoke with Cody Hirt, current owner of Mesquite Creek Outfitters, who is also opening The Golden Rule, a restaurant, in Georgetown.
As a result of current Covid-19 statistics, there are limitations on outdoor gatherings.
Therefore, the DGA will not be hosting its July Market Days.
“After having missed out on other popular celebrations this year, we knew that many people, ourselves included, were looking forward to the Independence Day festivities. Filled with a courage that only an adult beverage or two could provide, we decided that “We The People” would organize a parade ourselves. That’s right. We, the people of Georgetown are organizing a Celebration of CommUNITY, by the people and for the people of Georgetown and Williamson County.”
As part of HRN’s “Commitment to Community” campaigns, the station is teaming up with THE LOCKER to promote “Kids Helping Kids Stay Healthy Donate-a-Thon” on August 1. The Locker is a nonprofit organization helping kids in Georgetown with basic necessities such as toiletries, school supplies, hygiene products, and much more. The event on August 1 will be a drive though donation.
With the massive amount of growth we are experiencing here, we continue to see new businesses coming to town on a regular basis. Starting next week, we will begin weekly updates of new businesses coming to Georgetown.
