“MEET OUR DONORS” – G. Grant and Kathryn (Long) Brown were married in 1937 and were blessed with four children, George, David, Beth and Bettina. Grant served in the European Theater in WW II. Following his return, Grant and Kathryn opened the infamous “Brownie’s Drive-In” restaurant in Bryan. Grant and Kathryn had deep-rooted interest in Bryan which led them to serve their community in many ways. They were active in Wesley United Methodist Church among many other service organizations in the Bryan community. Grant served on the Bryan City Council, the Bryan Chamber of Commerce, the Williams County Board of Commissioners, the Bryan Rotary and the Bryan Hospital. Grant was also a Charter Member of the Bryan Area Foundation and is credited with the very first donation to the Foundation in 1969. For his many contributions to Bryan, Grant was recognized as the 1985 Good Citizen of the Year. The G. Grant and Kathryn Brown Memorial Community Fund was established to honor their commitment to the Bryan community. ... See MoreSee Less
