Chamber Weekly Update – November 20, 2020

There Is Always, Always Something To Be Thankful For

“THANKSGIVING”

Thanksgiving is traditionally celebrated with friends and family, but this year it may be a challenge to do so. It may be harder to get together in person and celebrate as usual because of the coronavirus. Everyone has different opinions on whether to get together with the whole family or not. You have the right to decide what is best for you and your family. There is no right or wrong answer to this so please respect each other’s decisions to do what is best for their family. With that being said, it may even be more important this year to let your friends and family know that you’re still thinking of them and that you’re thankful for their presence in your life even if you can’t be with them.

Many of us have had a difficult time this year with illness, loss, uncertain employment, and isolation due to COVID-19. But we still have a lot to be thankful for. I personally am thankful for my beautiful wife, my precious 91 year old Mother, my job, my health and many more Blessings from God that I sometimes take for granted. We are not promised the future so enjoy the present and all that is around you.

Thanksgiving will be very different for a lot of us this year. But however you choose to celebrate it, please take a moment to say Thanks to God for the Blessings that you have also received in 2020.

Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart


“Keeping Dollars in Duncanville”

“HAPPY THANKSGIVING”

2020 has been a very unusual and trying year.

It has brought us many obstacles to deal with in our businesses, families and personal lives. Although it has been a difficult year we still have plenty of things in our lives to be thankful for. But we sometimes don’t see these blessings because we are too busy dwelling on the negative things that are happening.

Thanksgiving will be very different for a lot of us this this year. But however you choose to celebrate it please take a moment to say Thanks to God about the Blessings that you have also received.

LSW Distinguished Leaders Alumni Award Renamed in memory of Curtistene S. McCowan

The LSW Board of Directors unanimously agreed to rename the DLA Award in honor and memory of LSW Class 2015 Graduate and 2016 DLA Award
Recipient, the Honorable Curtistene S. McCowan. When board members were asked to describe Mayor McCowan, there were plenty of heartfelt
intrinsic qualities shared.

Tamara Sadler, Crescent Strategies, LLC, shared a few of words of wisdom that McCowan shared and definitely lived by.

“Be professional, responsible, inspirational, zealous, and ethical…”
“Be proactive and dedicated to getting things done…”
“Becoming a leader is not for the faint hearted.”
“Be about growing and investing in others.”
“Model excellence and boldness… Tap into your inner greatness.”

Trudy Lewis, City of Hutchins, states Mayor Curtistene McCowan was an incredible leader with a servant heart. She stood as an example of grace,
discernment, generosity, leadership, and commitment to the public good. Her legacy is one that paved the way for so many others; she was blessed to be able to see the fruits of her labor. She cannot be replaced but will be honored by all those who knew her.

Randall Chase, Cedar Hill Chamber, says she was such an advocate for our area and for LSW. Her passion, drive, impact, and enthusiasm will live on in this region for decades to come.

Jason Ruiz, Resource One Credit Union, recalls a time he sat with her during a luncheon. She was so down to earth and genuinely cared about who he was, what he was doing, and his future plans for advocacy in our community. It was so encouraging and uplifting! Being his first time meeting her and to give him the platform. That’s true leadership!

Monica Kenney, Frost bank, says Mayor McCowan was the epitome of genuine leadership and community advocacy.

Corey Green, Oncor, remembers his experiences with her were always welcoming and curious about how she could serve him. She embodies
servant leadership with grace and elegance!

Elizabeth Guillen, Ruiz Financial Solutions, remembers Mayor McGowan as a woman of great valor & courage. A mother to a city that paved the way for others to lead, serve, and build up communities.

The 2020 DLA Honoree was announced back on May 20, 2020. The style of leadership and dedication to this area is just that of what Mayor
Curtistene McCowan lived by and it is absolutely appropriate for Kenneth Govan with Oncor to be the first recipient of the award named in her honor, the Curtistene McCowan Distinguished Leader Alumni Award.

Duncanville Police Department Issues Scams Warning

Duncanville, TX – October 21, 2020 – The Duncanville Police Department is alerting residents to remain vigilant of scams.

The Duncanville Police Department has received reports of a phone and letter scam, which presents itself as coming from Publishers Clearing House. The scam starts with a call or letter saying you’ve won, but to collect the prize you are required to send money by Western Union, MoneyGram, or a reloadable gift card.

Another way this scam attempts to steal your money is with a realistic-looking fake check, which residents may receive in their mail. Recipients are told that in order to claim the prize the check needs to be deposited and some of the money sent back for expenses. The check is fraudulent, and victims will be on the hook for the money they sent.

Still other scams try to lure in potential victims through text message or robocalls that prey on fears related to COVID-19, taxes or the threat of arrest by federal agents. Don’t fall for any of these scams.

Bad actors can create convincing robocalls, text messages, emails and mail. Scams are designed to bypass your judgment by using temptation or fear. There are many scams out there with new ones created almost daily. But by being cautious, not responding to calls or texts from unknown numbers, never sharing personal or financial information, and never clicking suspicious links in texts or emails, you can avoid
becoming the victim of a scam.

The Duncanville Police Department is available to assist.
Call (972) 223-6111 ext. 3, to report a suspected scam or if you’ve
become the victim of one.
