Corsicana pecans for the 2019 season

Karon Weatherman, Director of the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center, knows that the good cooks of Hopkins County want fresh pecans for their holiday baking, and she is making it easy to get the freshest from Northeast Texas trees. She also knows the community is eager to help with fundraising for the proposed Senior Citizens Center, so here is a great way to do both!

You can place your orders for 1-pound bags of freshly shelled pecans now at the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center. Orders must be in by October 31, 2019 at the Senior Center. Cost is $11.00 per bag. Orders must be pre-paid. One trip will be made to pick up pecans at Green Tree Pecan Farm near Corsicana, during the first week of November. When the pecans arrive back in Sulphur Springs, you can pick up your orders at the Seniors Center at 150 MLK Drive. With questions, call Karon at 903-885-1661 or email her at [email protected] Checks should be made out to Susan Vaughn, the volunteer handling the pecan orders.

These pecans are large and delicious, and come from the Green Tree Pecan Farm located near Corsicana, Texas. All of the proceeds from this year’s Pecan orders will go toward the Building Fund for a new Senior Citizens Center for Sulphur Springs/Hopkins County.
