Week in Review (Ending 12/16/2007)

It seems everyone is getting geared up for the holidays.  After a week of Holiday parties, we were focusing on getting our shopping done.  I am proud to say we got done early this year and the first time in a long time, will not be closing down the mall on Christmas Eve. This week we joined in our community for a few more holiday parties including FC Dallas, Collin County Association of Realtors, and my personal favorite, the Boys and Girls Club.  The young man with the Michael Jackson impersonation had the audience on the floor!  We also realized that we need to find a way to get the Boys and Girls Club a new intercom system.  It was such a blessing to be invited and see so many smiling faces.

West Frisco residents will be pleased to know we had the official grand opening of the Frisco Post Office at Main & Teel.  The Mayor has been working on this for several years so I know he took great pleasure in seeing the doors open.  It was ironic that the stamp machine malfunctioned when he was trying to use it.  Also, the Frisco Thunder hosted a kick-off party for sponsors.  Jake and Vinita Reed are such wonderful people and Dana and I are fortunate to have such a sponsorship party with Frisco-OnLine.com.  We went to every game last year and are looking to the season starting this year.  If you have never been, you need to make a point to get tickets.  It is a great time!

Our meeting schedule was light.  However, I did attend my first Mayor’s Youth Council.  Currently, the Mayor and Council Member Jim Joyner run this Council.  Their purpose is to get a teen perspective on issues effecting Frisco and there were a few dozen teens in attendance.  Since the Mayor and Dr. Joyner are in their final years, I will be attending the rest of the meetings this year and then leading the efforts to carry the program forward.

We also had a joint meeting with the Conventions and Visitors Bureau.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss marketing strategies for Frisco.  We will be doubling our hotel capacity over the next 12 months so we will be proactive in attracting people to Frisco to fill these rooms.

 Our next Council meeting is December 18th.
