Handler/Dog Sponsor - Storms in Hamilton

Thank you to Storm's in Hamilton for not only sponsoring Billie Hall and his dog, Abby, but for also providing a gift card for our silent auction! 

From their website:  "The Storm family has a lot of experience feeding hungry travelers. The first Storm’s in Texas dates back to 1873 when my great-grandfather William Washington Storm built a stagecoach stop and post office in Wood County. I’m not sure the exact menu, but I expect my great-grandmother served up chicken fried steak and fresh catfish — much like we serve today.

But Storm’s Hamburgers and French Fries didn’t become famous until 1944 — the year I was born — when my father Jim Storm owned and operated a diner in San Antonio. Then in 1950, my family moved back to the Hill Country to open The Dairy Cue — a name we changed 20 years later to Storm’s.
We’re in our 50th year in that same location in Lampasas, as well as in Burnet and Hamilton. We’ve been around a long time and have seen many changes in the food industry. Change can be good, but in some areas we still do things the way we did 50 years ago. We’re one of the few old-fashioned places that grind our own beef so we can guarantee the flavor and quality of our famous Texas hamburgers. And for French Fries we still slice fresh potatoes every day.

So I invite you to try a famous Storm’s Hamburger — or order up a plate of fresh catfish. We’ve been feeding folks a long time, and we’re good at it."
