Tree planting day a huge success!

The 2018 Tree planting project was a huge success!  On February 10th, a group went up to Iredell, Texas to load 30 Oak trees that had been “dug” and wrapped a few weeks before.  After a long day in freezing cold temperatures, we all made it home with a beautiful load of trees.  Then on February 17th, we had a outstanding workday where we planted every one of those trees and the irrigation to go with them.   It was a great project and a great effort by all!


First “First Saturday” Workday


The first “First Saturday” workday of the year was a huge success.  Everyone jumped in and helped fix up the old barn that is on the new property.  It may not be pretty, but it will work for another 40 years now.  Make plans to come out the first Saturday of April to help out with another project!


Thanks to everyone that came out and helped!

TEDTEA is growing!

In the last half of 2016, the TEDTEA coordinators were hard at work ironing out the details on purchasing 10.5 acres next to our existing grounds.  Thanks to a giant generous donation the deal was closed as the year ended.  Since then, volunteers have been hard at work clearing the land to make it the new parking lot for visitors during the show.

This picture was taken a couple weeks after we closed on the property.  You can see the fence line has been cleared and a new fence going up:

This picture was taken after Sohns Construction donated some time with their D6 to clear the rest of the trees.  

The area in green shows the existing 48 acre showgrounds, the area in red is the 10.5 acres we purchased.  

This new area increases the showgrounds by 20%!  This will allow us to have more visitors come during the show and have room to start some new displays!
