Several dozen Fannin County residents packed the North Texas Municipal Water District administration building's meeting room during Thursday's gathering of the board. It was their last public shot to persuade the board to change the name of North Texas Municipal Lake to Bois D'arc Lake. Or, Lake Bois D'arc. Anything, actually, as long as it has the name Bois D'Arc in it.

Texas’ newest lake-to-be could be getting a new name.
