Mark and Becky threw a grand party celebrating 5 years of making wine at Marker Cellars Winery. We have been a fan of Texas Wineries for many years, alway happy to show up for a tasting. However, having a winery in the neighborhood is a real treat. As you can see many of our neighbors and out of town visitors feel the same way.
If you’re looking for a great daytrip from anywhere in the North Texas, DFW area, mark your calendars for the 20th Annual Greenwood Fall Festival on Saturday, October 14, 2017 in Downtown Greenwood, Texas.
Greenwood EE Club Wise Extension Education Association
The mission of Texas Extension Education Association is to work with Texas AgriLife Extension Service to strengthen and enrich families through educational Programs, leadership development; and community service.
Our proceeds raised from the Festival are donated to local groups such as:

The day started out with a light drizzle and a chill, but soon became the perfect Fall day for this year’s Greenwood Fall Festival sponsored by the Greenwood EE Club. The activities, parade, games, silent auction and vendors displaying their crafts, were enjoyed by children and adults alike. The money the club raised will go a long way to help support many local organizations in the Greenwood area.

As with most of Texas, the LBJ Grasslands area has its share of feral hogs wreaking havoc on pastures, crops and lawns. Even with year round hunting allowed, the pig population appears to be growing. This shot, made by a game camera on our neighbors property adjacent to the Grasslands, demonstrates the scale of the problem. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has information about feral hogs on their web page.
