Lively Oak hosts benefit for injured girl
By Mollie LaSalle
FRED –The Lively Oak event Center hosted their “Lively May Market and Benefit”, Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6.
There were several vendors, a food truck, shopping, and live music on Friday. Saturday featured a silent auction and blood drive all to benefit little Miss Annabel Stanley, who is recovering from being injured in an ATV accident.
Annabel’s grandmother, Cherie Stanley reports that Annabel is finally home, and posted on this on her Facebook page two weeks ago: “Thank you all for the many prayers. She is up and walking with little assistance, and well, just doing fabulous”. All proceeds from this benefit will go toward expenses incurred since the accident.
The Lively Oak Event Center is located out in the country in Fred amid 25 acres of farmland. Oak, pine, and hickory trees create a beautiful canvas for any special event. It is quiet and peaceful and sure to create memories for any occasion.
Owner Susie Moore grew up amidst theses peaceful surroundings and helped raise a variety of animals. After 25 years of living with her husband in locations from South Carolina to Alaska, they returned (temporarily) to care for her parents. Susie’s hope was to facilitate retirement and have a place for an outdoor ministry, so they decided to stay and build their dream on her part of the family farmland.
Susie had to put her plans on hold when Covid showed up three years ago. Soon after, her husband passed away. She persevered, and with God’s direction and her family and friends help, the dream was completed in June 2021. Her desire to honor her parents and her husband’s legacies have helped her move forward with the completion of the event center on the property and she also maintains Doosie Farm.
The event complex features a groom’s game room, and a bridal/honeymoon suite. There is a large kitchen, a parlor, spacious porches, balconies, and decks. There is also a log cabin on the property for overnight guests. The “main attraction” is a huge live oak tree with a canopy of over 90 feet, and it is an impressive sight, especially in the evening.
The Lively Oak Event Center is located at 840 CR 4900 in Fred, Texas. There are signs up along the way for your convenience. One says, “Turn Here”, another says “Keep Going”, and “Almost There”. You can’t miss it once you start seeing all the oak trees along the road. If you are wanting to get away and enjoy a little slice of Heaven for a few hours, you can’t go wrong here.
