One that stood out the most was Lone Star Maps. They are currently in the process of selling their business but seems to be taking the time to find the individual who will love and care for the business as much as they have invested in our Cedar Creek Lake community the last almost 20 years, since 2000.

A flyer on their table reads:

“Kathy and John Kendrick have owned and operated Lone Star Maps since 2000. They have produced and distributed detailed and accurate maps of the Cedar Creek Lake area, including the thirteen cities near the lake. They have also produce detailed and accurate maps of the cities of Athens and Canton, Texas. Revenue was generated through the sale of advertising space on the maps. The maps themselves were free to the public.

35,000 copies of the Cedar Creek Lake area maps have been produced and distributed annually. 25,000 copies of the Athens maps and 55,000 copies of the Canton maps have been produced.

We want to sell our business to someone who will continue to produce and distribute these maps and perhaps expand the business to produce and distribute maps of other East Texas lakes and cities.”

These maps are well known in the area and can be picked up at strategic points around town.

The business expo drew a large crowd and Tuley did a fine job of keeping the music flowing and the atmosphere light and fun filled with lots of giveaways at most of the tables!

If you missed this one, be watching local advertisement for next years!
