Festival of the Arts at Heritage Village March 20

Tyler County Booster

“Toast to Texas” is over. Because of publishing deadlines you will have to wait until next week to read the various toasts written by Texas history students from the school districts in Tyler County. I hope we will have a good turnout to listen to the students and to toast our great state of Texas with branch water. The Pickett House has some new hours on Saturday that you need to know. The restaurant will now close at 6 p.m. to Saturday. It can remain open later with prior arrangements. If you have a party of fifteen or more and need a later closing you need only to call the Village at 283-2272 to check the date. The Pickett House will be open later during our special events. It is approaching “Dogwood Time in Tyler County”. This is the three weekend event that begins with the Festival of the Arts at Heritage Village on March 20th. Beautiful quilts, both new and vintage, will be on display. Various pioneer crafts will be demonstrated. Heritage Village gates will open at 9:00 and admission for this event is $4 for adults and $2 for children under 12. Tickets are now available for the Dinner on the Grounds, Sunday, March 21st, at Heritage Village. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. The ticket will admit you to the Village, give you a great meal with wonderful entertainment, and an opportunity to tour the Village before or after you have eaten. You may purchase your tickets from the Village Gift Shop, members of the Board of Directors, Sullivan’s Hardware, Jarrott’s Pharmacy, and Mary Bee’s Florist. As is true of most “dinners on the ground” or “covered dish dinners” the menu varies according to what is brought. We know that we will have brisket because that is already being prepared by Tolly Lovelace. We know we will have meatloaf, chicken, cornbread dressing, potato salad, various veggies, lots of great desserts and your choice of beverages. We promise that you will not be disappointed. Serving time begins at 11:00 a.m. and continues until 2:00 so plan accordingly. We are already beginning to keep a watchful eye on the weather. Like most of you, I am ready for spring and ready to put the rain and cold weather behind us. We will have our big tent on the Village Green and we have other shelter should we need it. Hopefully, we won’t!
