WHEREAS, Proud residents of the City of Buda are gathering
  in Austin on February 27, 2019, to celebrate Buda Day at the State
  Capitol, and the delegation includes representatives from the
  City of Buda, the Buda Economic Development Corporation, the Buda
  Chamber of Commerce, and other community businesses and
  organizations; and
         WHEREAS, Established as a new depot on the
  International-Great Northern Railroad in 1881, Buda was known
  as Du Pre until the post office requested a name change seven
  years later; one explanation for the unique moniker is that
  "Buda" comes from the Spanish word viuda, or widow, and refers
  to the two widows who cooked at a local establishment, the
  Carrington Hotel, in the 1880s; and
         WHEREAS, The town's early economy centered on supplies and
  services for the nearby ranches and dairy farms, and local
  businesses formed a chamber of commerce in 1928; the City of Buda
  was incorporated 20 years later, and in 1967, its schools joined
  the Hays Consolidated Independent School District; Buda's
  population began to grow in earnest in the 1980s, and today, the
  city is home to approximately 17,000 people; and
         WHEREAS, Designated the Outdoor Capital of Texas by the
  Texas Legislature, Buda is located at the edge of the beautiful
  Texas Hill Country and is known for its preservation of the
  area's open spaces and natural landscape; and
         WHEREAS, Visitors to Buda can enjoy the appeal of Onion
  Creek and Buda's pristine parklands, the quaint local shops in
  the historic Main Street district, and the community events, such
  as the Downtown Buda Farmer's Market; the city's festive
  occasions include the Red, White, and Buda Independence Day
  Celebration, Boo-da Halloween, and the Buda Fest and Buda Trail
  of Lights; other notable attractions include the outdoor shop
  Cabela's, the Buda Lions Country Fair, and the Wiener Dog Races
  held in April; and
         WHEREAS, The citizens of Buda are building on an impressive
  tradition of achievement and public spirit, and they may indeed
  take great pride in their contributions to the story of the Lone
  Star State; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 86th
  Legislature, hereby recognize February 27, 2019, as Buda Day at
  the State Capitol and extend to the visiting delegation sincere
  best wishes for the future.
        President of the Senate
        I hereby certify that the
    above Resolution was adopted by
    the Senate on February 26, 2019.
        Secretary of the Senate
         Member, Texas Senate
