SWA Palestine Paint-Out March 31 – April 1

Dogwood Trails Celebration
Palestine, Texas
March 31 – April 1

The weekend for our Palestine Paint-Out is March 31-April 1, to coincide with the 80th Annual Dogwood Trails Celebration. David Tripp, who is coordinating this event, has arranged a special rate for paint-out participants at The Redlands Historic Inn. The Redlands, built in 1914 and extensively renovated, is located downtown, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Each of its 20 available rooms is uniquely furnished. The hotel has quite an interesting history and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a preserved structure of historical significance.

According to a Palestine Visitors Guide, “Palestine is a charming East Texas town that boasts more than 1,800 historic sites, including the Main Street District.” In other words, plenty of painting opportunities as well as fun events during the dogwood celebration!

Our flexible itinerary looks like this.
(Participants can always feel free to choose their own activities):
• Arrive Saturday morning and rendezvous at The Gallery of The Redlands Hotel.
• Disperse and paint ‘til lunch.
• Meet somewhere close for lunch.
• Paint ‘til dinner.
• Meet at the hotel restaurant for dinner.
• Sunday – Paint as long as we want, then head home.

Anyone interested in attending the paint-out should contact the Redlands directly for hotel reservations as soon as possible to insure availability, at 800-550-5445. Please also let David Tripp or Bill Dale know that you will be participating in the paint-out. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact: David at dmtripp2000@yahoo.com or Bill at bill@billdaledesign.com. Flyer: SWApleinairPalestineflyer
