Wine In The Pines…..THIS WEEKEND!


You seriously DO NOT want to miss the Wine In The Pines this weekend on the Square in downtown Mt. Vernon!

Wine in the Pines is a wine festival held on the picturesque downtown plaza in Mt. Vernon, TX on the fourth weekend in October. This event is open to any Texas winery. This will be the fourth year for Wine in the Pines. We typically have 18 wineries attending from as far south as Houston, as far north as Paris, as far east as Naples and as far west as Wichita Falls.

Admission is $5 per person and tastings are $1 each. Wine is available by the tasting, the glass, or the bottle. Visit the art, crafts and food vendors. Enjoy the live entertainment. Friday evening is especially fun as we stroll among the lights to sip, savor, shop and walk around the square.

Friday – 5:00 – 9:00 pm

Saturday – 10:00 – 5:00



A GREAT BIG “THANK YOU” to A-1 Bug Squad (903) 366-9578 and RC Retaining Walls (903) 588-4553 for dropping everything and coming to the rescue of Eagle Point residents directly after the storm this past Thursday.  Armed with chainsaws, workers and a backhoe, they were able to clear downed trees and debris from residents’ properties.

If you are a part-time homeowner in Eagle Point and are able, you need to have a neighbor to check your property for damage.  There was substantial damage done to many properties from fallen trees and branches.
