As you look forward to the many community activities taking place in October, there are several Extension events in particular that I encourage you to attend.
The first event is the National 4-H Week Fashion Show held at David’s Western Wear in Decatur. The annual fashion show is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, and will feature Wise County 4-H’ers modeling those fine western duds from David’s.
Each year we have more than 50 young men and ladies, strut their stuff in the presence of parents, relatives, friends and visitors while celebrating National 4-H Week.
The Greenwood Fall Festival sponsored by the Greenwood Extension Education Club is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. You’ll enjoy a parade beginning at 10 a.m., and immediately following the parade, handcrafted arts and craft booths will be open.
For those unsure of finding Greenwood, it is a short, scenic drive out of Decatur on Farm Road 51 North. Go 10 miles to Farm Road 1204, turn left and travel approximately five miles into the community of Greenwood.
Call today to reserve your spot for our Friend to Friend party at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the newly opened Weatherford College Wise County campus on U.S. 380 between Decatur and Bridgeport.
The purpose of the event is so women can come and learn about breast and cervical cancer and the screening services that are available in the area. There will be food, door prizes and valuable information. Those who call to pre-register and attend the event will be entered into a special door prize drawing.
And finally, the week will conclude on Friday, Oct. 19, with Paint the Town Pink festivities on the Square in Decatur. There will be special promotions, bake sales, a silent auction and the pink line ceremony. All proceeds benefit Mary’s Gift and Women’s Services at Wise Regional.
To obtain more information on any of the activities discussed, call the Extension office at (940) 627-3341.
