My wife and I are strong supporters of local and small businesses. Dannell has worked as a professor for Sam Houston State University for over ten years and has worked full time with ESC Region 6 for eleven years, in Safety, Education and Training. Dannell serves on the POP committee through the Huntsville-Walker County Chamber of Commerce and chairs the Broiler Committee for the Walker County Fair Association. Dannell is a graduate of HLI Class 35.  

   I, Sam, serve on many different organizations in Huntsville and Walker County. I sit on the board of the Walker County Fair Association and the Huntsville Walker County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Executive Board. I also serve as the Vice Chair for Crime Stoppers and chair the Supervisory Committee for the Walker County Federal Credit Union.

  My wife and I are lifetime members of the Walker County Fair Association through our Business Silver Spur Membership. We were awarded the "Outstanding Service Award of an Individual" through the local Chamber. I have been recognized as "Director of the Year" and received an "Outstanding Service Award" from the Chamber. I was an HLI Class 34 graduate and received a commendation from US Rep. Kevin Brady.

   We own two other businesses in Huntsville, Rockin' D Services, and Rockin' D Nursery. We are so excited to add The Patio to the list. We invite you to stop by and spend some time here. We hope you love this place as much as we do.
