Spring Peddlers Market is all set for this Saturday

By Tom Hawkins
The Spring Peddlers Market will be a big day in Groesbeck. The Spring Peddlers Market will be held at the Groesbeck Convention Center on this Saturday, April 2, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Spring Peddlers Market is under the sponsorship of the Groesbeck Chamber of Commerce with the name of the event formerly being the Spring Arts & Crafts Show. With a very varied array of merchandise on sale at the event, the Chamber felt that the new name would be more descriptive of the sales activities at hand.
Vendors from Groesbeck but also from many other places will be present for the event. As of early this week, Scooter Kennedy, manager of the Groesbeck Chamber of Commerce, informed the Journal that twenty-two booths had been rented.
However, the Chamber manager added, “There are still booths available.”
The booths will include both indoor and outdoor booths.

Former Groesbeck couple returns home

By Roxanne McKnight
Staff Writer
A young couple who grew up in Groesbeck – Clayton and Kristin (Jones) Rettig – moved back to their hometown in February, and they have already settled in with new jobs and old friends.
Clayton Rettig bought the lawn service portion of Wilson’s Lawn and Tree Service from Devin Wilson, while Wilson is keeping the tree care portion of the business he founded. The two associates share the Wilson office on J.B. Riggs Drive behind the courthouse.
Kristin Rettig is a physician assistant at Rettig Family Health Care, helping her father-in-law, Dr. Jeff Rettig.
Both Clayton and Kristin said they have warm memories of growing up in Groesbeck and had planned to return to live in their hometown someday.
“My family moved here when I was in kindergarten, so I spent most of my growing-up years here and graduated from Groesbeck High School,” Kristin said.
