New Boston enters HGTV’s “Hometown Makeover” contest


NEW BOSTON, Texas (KTAL) – Residents in New Boston are entering an HGTV contest to win a “home town makeover.”

A rally was held Saturday morning at the Pavillion downtown, in order to encourage citizens to be a part of their entry video.

People were asked to wear maroon or their business shirts.

Sue Anderson, a New Boston councilwoman, says she learned about the contest by watching tv.

“I went to different businesses and said I want to enter New Boston. They said ‘That’s great! What can we do to help?’ So everybody’s been excited so I’m hoping we have a good turnout.”
