Wise County Extension Education Clubs were represented at the annual Texas Extension Education Association (TEEA) State Convention in Beaumont, Sept. 11-13 by Bobbie Ashley, Gerry Galloway and Dixie Range of the Greenwood Extension Education Club. “From Our Past, Comes Our Future” was the theme of the three-day conference.

TEEA members attended workshops, education programs and AgriLife programs at the Beaumont Civic Center, which will be shared with TEEA Clubs and counties. This year Texas AgriLife Extension celebrated 100 years of family and consumer sciences agents in Texas.

Texas TEEA includes more than 7,000 members. The group’s mission is to work with Texas AgriLife Extension to strengthen and enrich families through educational programs, leadership development and community service.

The new year for Extension Education clubs begins soon, and new members are welcome. The only local club currently formed is in the community of Greenwood. As an EE member you make new friends, participate in fun, fellowship and educational programs.

The first activity for the new TEEA year is the Greenwood Fall Festival 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Everyone is invited to enjoy a parade at 10 a.m. and immediately following the parade arts and craft booths will be open. Featured activities will be children’s train rides, food and game booths, plus door prizes. Booth space is available for $10 by contacting Gerry Galloway at (940) 466-7997 or Marilynn Collins at (940) 627-5175.

For those unsure of finding Greenwood, it is a short, scenic drive out of Decatur on Farm Road 51 North for 10 miles to Farm Road 1204. Turn left and travel approximately five miles into the community of Greenwood.
