As you look forward to the many community activities taking place in October, there is one event in particular that I encourage you to attend.
The 21st Annual Greenwood Fall Festival sponsored by the Greenwood Extension Education Club is scheduled for Saturday, October 13 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. You’ll enjoy a parade beginning at 10:00 am and immediately following the parade, handcrafted arts and craft booths will be open. Featured activities will be children’s train rides, food and game booths, silent auction items and door prizes. Booth space is available for $10 by contacting Gerry Galloway at 940/627-7999 or Linda Hood at 940/389-8497.
Prior to the event contact a Greenwood EE member to purchase raffle tickets on a $750 Cabela’s Gift Card, $500 Walmart Gift Card or a beautiful ‘Garden Glory’ Quilt.
Proceeds from the event are donated to the following local groups and more: Angel Fund, Greenwood Buyers Association, CASA, Wise County 4-H, Greenwood/Slidell Fire Department, Slidell School Library, Sonflower Camp, Wise Hope Crisis Center and the North Texas Stockings for Soldiers Campaign.
For those unsure of finding Greenwood, it is a short, scenic drive out of Decatur on Highway 51 North for 10 miles to FM 1204, turn left and travel approximately five miles into the community of Greenwood.
To obtain more information on any of the activities discussed, please telephone the Extension office at 940/627-3341. I hope to see you at this Community Event.
