It's been the buzz the past week on Twitter when Sir Richard Branson of Virgin had written a blog article this month about his family history. See this link-https://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/reuben-s-branson-the-original-entrepreneur
Very exciting news for a small town that is transforming for a new era of visitors. Sir Richard found out that his Great-great uncle is actually Rueben Branson, the founder of Branson, MO. While researching his geneolgy, Sir Richard was very interested to know that one of his ancestors had built a town that has had a successful history now hosting millions of visitors a year.
His hopes are to visit soon and I quote "Paint the town red" As you can imagine, it's made the news and all the newspapers! Everyone is very exited to see what the Virgin group has planned, or what their ideas mean for us? A breath of fresh air, ideas &creativity for the town of Branson we hope. The opprounities are just here waiting for you Sir Richard! We have started painting the town red for you already... I love famous country music artist Billy Dean's picture he tweeted-
Very interesting indeed Sir Richard! We will all welcome you with open arms!
