Lone Oak schedules two events this week

LONE OAK — The City of Lone Oak has two big events scheduled this week.

The city will be taking part in the National Night Out Tuesday and on Saturday will be hosting a festival in honor of its namesake tree.

The City of Lone Oak will be participating in the National Night Out crime prevention program starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the town square pavilion. The night will include a hot dog supper, games, door prize raffle, music, and giveaways.

The second annual Lone Oak Oak Tree Festival is scheduled all day Saturday. Lone Oak is at the intersection of U.S. Highway 69 and Farm roads 513 and 1567 about 10 miles southeast of Greenville in southeastern Hunt County. The first settlers arrived in the area in the late 1850s. By the eve of the Civil War a community had developed and was named for an impressive oak tree that stood alone on the grass-covered prairie.

The festival will be held outdoors in the downtown square, with activities including food, games, live bands, a bay pageant and more.

Those wanting more information about either of the events can contact Nikki Jacks, City of Lone Oak Event Coordinator at 903-413-9830 or nikkileighjacks@gmail.com.
