"North Pole of Texas"
Hosted Only One More Weekend
by: Bobby McDonald
The Alan and Kim Screws Family, along with a host of family and friends, have once again opened their farm to the public for what has become a tradition in Hopkins County and Northeast Texas, "North Pole of Texas." There is only one more weekend and then the nights just before Christmas through December 23rd, for this season's event. You'll want to mark you calendar to participate in the "Pine Forest" hospitality and share the joy of Christmas with your family, as you make the trip to Screws Farm.
What began as a hayride in 1997, added the train in 1998, and continues to add additional features, the North Pole of Texas, just keeps growing with more and more people to entertain. Kim's Chocolate Factory is the perfect place to "chase away" the winter cold and make the trip just that more enjoyable.
Alan and Kim, along with their helpful crew, just keep making the experience better and better, each year.
Sponsors for this event include: New Beginnings Fellowship Baptist Church, Pizza Inn- Sulphur Springs, Farmers Electric Co-op, Allrounder Dairy, City National Bank, Lone Star Milk Producers, Alexander's Tractor Parts, ABC Auto Plex, Hopkins County Vet Clinic, Winnsboro Vet Clinic, East Texas Line-X, AG Power, BC Sand & Gravel, Brandon Gunn Plumbing, Shawn Massey Welding, Dairy Queen- Mt.Vernon, The Propane Company, S & J Contractors, Kramerica Outdoor Advertising, and Randy & Denette Berry.
