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 slated for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 13.

You’ll enjoy a parade beginning at 10 a.m. Immediately following the parade, 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 calling Gerry Galloway, 940-627-7999, or Linda Hood, 940-389-8497.

Prior to the event, Greenwood EE members are selling raffle tickets for a $750 Cabela’s gift card, $500 Walmart gift card or a beautiful Garden Glory Quilt.

Proceeds from the event are donated to several local groups, including 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 Farm Road 51 North for 10 miles to Farm Road 1204. Turn left and travel approximately five miles into the community of Greenwood.

For more information, call the Extension office at 940-627-3341. I hope to see you at this community event.
