Finally! The moment so many Tyler, Texas residents have been waiting for is coming soon. The grand opening of the gorgeous new W.T. Brookshire Conference Center is coming up on April 13.

Although many of us who grew up in East Texas felt some sentimental pangs regarding the teardown of Harvey Hall Convention Center. However, as we have seen the plans and subsequent construction of the beautiful Rose City Complex we have to look forward to, some of the pangs have turned to happy anticipation. Especially as we have been hearing about the green spaces and food truck areas that are planned.

Seriously y'all--this place is going to be gorgeous. But even more importantly than that, Tyler has been in need of a more modern conference place in East Texas.

Brookshire Conference Center in the Tyler Rose Complex is April 13, from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m. The ribbon cutting will commence at 6:45 p.m. The event is free and totally open to the public.
