Texas Friendly and Seven FotoFacts




....and Welcome to my Friendly Home Town of San Angelo, Texas.  

The Texas State Motto is 'FRIENDSHIP' and was adopted by the Texas Legislature in 1930.

 State mottoes may be said to reflect the character and beliefs of the citizens of the state, or more accurately, the citizens of the state when they were adopted.

State mottoes can help us gain insight into the history of a state.
