Always Stay Positive

Sometimes in life, we think that things are tough and we get upset or down about them. I was watching America’s Got Talent on television this week and I saw a 30 year old young lady nicknamed “Nightbirde” who changed my thinking about myself and life. I’ve had a few aches and pains here recently and not really happy about them. This young lady beautifully sang an original song named “It’s Okay.” The judges, the audience and myself were in tears. She is a three time cancer survivor and she now only has a 2% chance of survival. Yes 2%. She has cancer in her lungs, her spine and her liver but you would never know this when you see her smile and hear her talk. Just before Simon hit the golden buzzer for her she said, “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” As she was leaving the stage she said that “2% is not 0%” and smiled as she said it.

When we think that our lives are tough, look around at the world and realize that God has blessed us greatly. She has given me a quote that I will never forget.

Schools Out for the Summer

Summertime means a lot of different things to different families. Our Teachers get a well deserved break from all of their students but those students are now children that parents have to worry about on a daily basis. Some students are looking for summer jobs. If you or your business has an opening or needs to hire part-time workers then let us know if we can help you find the person that you are looking for. Restaurants are really needing people to go to work and fill their vacancies. Your Chamber can help.

Also if you have any information about FREE events for students this summer, we can help you share those as well. Call the Chamber at 972-780-4990 and let us know how we can help. Everyone be safe and have a happy summer break.

The Sacrifice of Others

As we approach Memorial Day weekend, I ask the question of how can we keep our community great? We are so blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom of speech and opinion. Everyone’s speech and opinion will not be accepted by all, but if the intention is not to harm or disrespect others, I encourage us to simply agree to disagree. SIMPLY…AGREE… TO… DISAGREE.

This weekend, we should reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen heroes and remember that they are unable to enjoy the freedoms that they fought for. We should respectfully not sweat the small stuff. Let us be grateful for what we DO have. Pass on your gratitude to your community. We are the CITY OF CHAMPIONS!

Have A Safe Memorial Day, In Remembrance
Dr. Danielle R. Franklin

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.”

We Are Talking About Masks Again

Governor Greg Abbott on Tuesday issued an Executive Order prohibiting governmental entities in Texas – including counties, cities, school districts, public health authorities, or government officials – from requiring or mandating mask wearing. This has to do with Government Entities only. It doesn’t apply to the local businesses. No matter where you stand on the issue of masks there is one thing that everybody should use, it’s called Kindness and Respect for everyone’s right to do what they feel comfortable doing. If you don’t want to wear a mask then so be it but don’t judge others who do. Also if you choose to wear one, don’t be critical of the ones who do not wear a mask.

We are all in the same waters, but we’re not all in the same boat. My Mother always said “play nice with others.”

Stay Safe and Shop Local.

April Showers Are Still Around

They say that in Texas if you don’t like the weather, then wait a moment and it will change soon. It’s so true for this weekend. We have beautiful sunshine and 80 degrees forecast for Saturday’s Duncan Switch Street Market. But they are predicting rain to come in late Saturday and heavy rains on Sunday through next week. We hope that they are wrong and that we can have good weather to play the golf tournament on Monday, May 17th. We will be watching closely and if we have to postpone then we will call everyone to let them know. An alternate date for rescheduling would be Monday, June 28th.

Say your Prayers but be sure to come out and enjoy our “7” Year Anniversary Celebration of the Duncan Switch Street Market. Be one of the first 100 there and receive a FREE Snow-cone from the Chamber.

April Showers bring May Flowers….

May flowers are here and to me that means an opportunity to blossom from what happened in the past year, month, or day. Even though some days can be hard and seem to be overwhelming and never-ending; we must remember that life is about lessons and we should try to learn something each day. By doing so, we grow, blossom and become our best selves, which then allows us to help others. My challenge for you this week is to find an area in your life where you can blossom and end your week with a smile in your heart.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mothers. You are valued and appreciated.

Four Powerful Words I Learned This Week

I heard a phrase used this week that stuck with me. The person said that as we hear people talk of their political affiliation, their race, their religion, their financial situation or just the place that they may be in their life at the time,

“STOP JUDGING & START LOVING.”

Read this again and again. Do not make assumptions or be too quick to react to a person’s statement or feelings. We may not know anything about them or their current situation but we sometimes judge them too quickly.

Stay Safe and Be Kind To Each Other, And Always Shop Local!

I Want to Share Two Important Words

The much needed rain is coming in today and tonight. I pray that none of it is severe but after the rain passes tonight it is supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

So my two important words that I want to share with you is simply “SHOP LOCAL.” Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and support your local businesses and restaurants. They still need and want your help.

We were disappointed to have to cancel the April Duncan Switch Street Market. But as a reminder the May Market comes soon as the 3rd Saturday is only the 2nd week of the month. The Street Market goes from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Watch for announcements coming soon for the May Market. Hope to see you Saturday, May 15th.

Get Out and Enjoy Spring

Spring is here and it’s time to get out and enjoy being in the world. With vaccines being received, some feel more comfortable about getting out. (But remain cautious and respectful of others and wear your masks.) Check out our area restaurants with patios and enjoy the outdoors. Also take a visit to our parks to walk, play and to have a picnic.

Our businesses have weathered the storms of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the snow storms and are now looking to a brighter and sunny tomorrow. You can help them to do just that by Shopping Local.

We welcome you to come out and shop local at the Duncan Switch Street Market this Saturday (event cancelled due to weather conditions) from 9:00 AM -3:00 PM. It’s a great place to shop local for your Mother’s Day gifts. And you can also enjoy a hot dog, a hamburger, a snow cone or ice cream plus we have some great BBQ by Elite BBQ and the Pynk Pit. Hope to see you Saturday.
