The word “beloved” could be used about a hundred times when talking about the events of this week. Namely the Holiday Lighting and Wassail Fests which will occur the Friday and Saturday respectively. There are multiple fundraisers if you want to get involved and give a helping hand this time of year. Heck, you might even feel good about yourself. There’s plenty out there to keep you busy and to give you more reasons to use the words “beloved” in the same sentence as “Denton." Hashtag #WDDI and show us your Denton and we just might pick your pic to be featured in our beloved What We Did post on Monday.
