I owe so many people my gratitude for all the wonderful hours that our Citizens put into volunteering to keep Argyle the greatest place to live in Texas.
Last month I was invited to attend the Lion’s Club meeting and loved hearing all the plans they have for future events. I hope everyone will be able to attend their Pancake Breakfast with the Easter Bunny scheduled for Saturday, April 4th. This event will be followed by the Town’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt that will be located at the high school beginning at 11 a.m. The event will include music, food trucks (In-N-Out Burger and snow cones to name a few) and, of course, thousands of Easter eggs. Kids will enjoy bounce houses, face painting, balloon art and a ventriloquist. Parents will have the opportunity to socialize with neighbors and friends. Admission is a canned good that will be donated to the Argyle Food Bank. This event could not happen without the wonderful volunteers from First Baptist Church and Crosstimbers Community Church, and the generosity of Argyle ISD. We can also thank our Town Staff for all of their help and support. Last year was a huge success and we plan to make this year bigger and better.
The next fun day that no one will want to miss is the Shooting for the Stars Fund Raiser scheduled for Saturday, May 9th at the high school. A bike rally, fun run and basketball games will start the day. Later, we will meet at Fuzzy’s for a silent auction and entertainment by the Bird Dogs Band. The money raised will go towards the school in memory of Alex Betzhold. This will be an event you won’t want to miss! This is not just for kids, but for all of Argyle that want to show generosity while having fun. Donations for the Silent Auction are still being collected if you want to help. Contact the school office if you have a donation or need more information.
I attended the Keep Argyle Beautiful Board meeting last week to find their calendar full of events planned to beautify Argyle with recycling and litter prevention. They are working on a brochure that will explain their mission and promote more volunteers for their organization. This is a great way to meet new friends and stay in touch with what is going on in Argyle. If you are interested, please come to a meeting. Currently the board meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm at Argyle Town Hall
The Argyle Chamber of Commerce is another active group which promotes Argyle businesses and contributes to the well-being of our Town. Attending their functions will keep you educated on future plans for Argyle.
On top of all of the great volunteers in Argyle, I need to brag on the Town’s Finance Director, Kim Collins. An audit was performed and presented at the March Council meeting that revealed a financially healthy Town. The auditor expressed how impressed he was with the professionalism and excellent job that Kim has done for the Town’s financial report.
Chief Tackett has been working hard on a Town Plan for any catastrophic disasters that could occur and how the Town will notify and protect the Argyle residents. He has obviously worked extremely hard on finding the most effective way to keep us safe. Thank you, Chief!
