The Community Builder Award was designed by the Grand Lodge Texas to enable a Lodge to recognize outstanding non-Masons who have distinguished themselves through their service to the community, to the local, state or national government, to their house of worship, or to humanity. Thus, the award is presented to individuals who, although they have never been initiated into Masonry, have followed the same precepts, ideals and standards that have been established for Masonic behavior.

The Texas 'liberty cities' rebellion
Texas is known for its low taxes and limited government - but its big cities look a lot like big cities anywhere, with their own rules and regulations. As they spread across the neighbouring countryside, some unhappy rural residents are drawing a line in the sand.

Kingsbury may officially become a city; Incorporation election set for May 9th
(Kingsbury) -- Guadalupe County may one day welcome the City of Kingsbury. Guadalupe County Judge Kyle Kutscher Friday morning ordered the call for a May 9, 2015 election to decide the Kingsbury Incorporation Committee's (KIC's) request for an “incorporation” election for the proposed City of Kingsbury.
Judge Kutscher says the Kingsbury Incorporation Committee delivered its application package to his office last Monday morning.
KIC Committee Chair Shirley Nolen says the group is excited about giving the citizens on the east end of the county the opportunity to have their voices heard.
Nolen says the May election will, no doubt, be a historic event for the Kingsbury community which has a 130 plus year history. She says the focus now of the committee is to get the word out to all eligible voters.
According to the committee, 296 people currently reside in the proposed city limits. Of those individuals, 170 are registered voters. To be successful, they'll need 50 percent plus one voters to come out in favor of the new city. That's approximately 86 people.
