Greetings Double Oak. At the Town Council meeting on Oct. 3rd the Council appointed me as mayor to fill the vacant seat until the May 2023 Municipal Election.
I appreciate the citizens and Council’s confidence appointing me to serve as mayor. I wish to thank our town citizens, Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Johnson, Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Connie Schoenrade and Council members Scott Whisenhunt, Casey Parsons and Jean Hillyer. I look forward to working with everyone for the good of Double Oak.
On this special day, let us honor and thank our military veterans for their service. Double Oak appreciates the men and women who are actively serving today and those who served in the past protecting our nation and our freedom. Please take a moment on Veterans Day to remember these Great Americans and God Bless them for their service.
Double Oak Town Hall will be closed on Friday, Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day.

Double Oak Christmas Tree Lighting
Please join your neighbors at the annual town Christmas tree lighting on Monday, Dec. 5, 2022, at 6 p.m. The famous Double Oak Women’s Club Choir will be performing. Our Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department always delivers “A Very Special Someone from the North Pole.”
The families of our town’s fallen First Responders have been invited to be the honored guests to light the tree. Let’s come together as the Double Oak community and let these families know we will never forget them. Watch for communications from the town and our partners at the DOWC for opportunities to support these families. We will be accepting monetary donations that will be split between the families to go towards Christmas gifts for the wives and children of these fallen First Responders.
