Members of the Henderson County Bar Association and local Judges took turns reading the Declaration of Independence today at noon on the courthouse steps.  Defense attorneys across the state of Texas have started to do this annually.  

Attorney Danna Mayhall said why this event was important to her, “It is a collective, I'm a proud American, I've always been a history buff.  American history was my favorite subject, I just love this country." She hopes to help with the even as long as possible and that someone will step up to honor the reason for the season when she cannot.
