Week in Review (Ending 10/28/07)

Wow, what a busy and exciting week!

Monday – This afternoon, I met with Scott Sanju, President of the Frisco Rough Riders.  He shared with me their upcoming community initatives and all of the charities they support.  They have been supportive of the Frisco Education Foundation as well.

This evening was the dedication of the fountain in the City Hall Plaza.  The fountain is stunning, especially at night.  We also buried the time capsule that was collected during the dedication last year of City Hall.  After the dedication, we had our Town Hall Meeting.  We do these 3 times a year as a way to keep citizens updated on things happening in Frisco.

Wednesday – Tonight we attended the Grand Opening of Coach Joe’s.  This is a great addition to Frisco.  It is a family-friendly atmosphere that adds in some evening entertainment.  At one seat I was sitting in I could see 8 TVs at once…my kind of place!  Coach Joe was working the room and since he is a former Cowboy Coach, he pulled out all of the stops for his grand opening.  Troy Aikman, Deion Sanders, Too Tall Jones, and other former Cowboys were in attendance.

Thursday – Tonight we had our Eldorado Town Hall Meeting

Friday – Tonight we had our first Halloween event at Safety Town.  It was an overwhelming success!  We were estimating 500 people and nearly 10,000 showed up.  Wal-Mart representatives saved the day by delivering a truck of candy.  The volunteers did a wonderful job and it was the best Halloween event my family has ever attended.  It is the perfect trick-or-treating experience, a safe environment, the houses were only a few feet apart, and everyone was home….no wonder it was such a big draw.  You can expect an even bigger event next year and we will be ready for them.

Saturday – This was a busy day. In the morning, I ran in the Gary Burns Fun Run which benefits the Frisco Education Foundation.  Although I used to be an avid runner, this was the first 5k I had ever run.  Let’s just say I am a little out of shape.  In the afternoon, we went to the dedication of the new Frisco Athletic Club.  I was Member #4 and you have not seen it yet, your family will be amazed.  That night, my family attended the FC Dallas playoff soccer game against Houston.  FC Dallas won the game 1-0.
