Ridge Point Homecoming Parade

Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 pm

All residents are invited to Ridge Point High School this Thursday for the Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally.    Kids of all ages are welcome and everyone is encouraged to wear Purple.  The Parade will roll at 7pm sharp.  If you have a little Panther that is a participant in the Gridiron Football program (as a player or cheerleader) you are invited to be a part of the Parade as well.  The Pep Rally will take place after the parade and all are invited to attend.  Once again Legacy Ford is donating an amazing fire works display at the end of the Pep Rally.   Come on out and cheer on your Panthers as they prepare to take on Clements High School in the Homecoming football game that will take place Friday, September 30.

Why I Love This Event

Back when my boys were playing Gridiron football as 3rd and 4th graders, they had a blast walking with their team in the Ridge Point Homecoming Parade.  I remember them watching the Ridge point Varsity team and feeling very proud that they too had on Panther football jerseys.    This event is very fun for little ones of every age and helps get them excited about one day attending this wonderful high school.

Registration Opens for 2017 Texas Sienna 10

One of the many things I love about living in Sienna is that so many of its residents try to live a healthy lifestyle.  The old “when in Rome” saying comes to mind.  If I see people running, walking,  or lifting weights it makes me want to join in.  Lots of my friends & neighbors have been encouraging to me over the years in this regard.  If you would like to get some exercise, have fun with your community and be entered into a drawing to win a few bucks, consider registering for this great event!

Registration is now open for the second annual Texas Sienna 10, slated for April 29, 2017, in Sienna Plantation.

Part of the Texas 10 Series, the race features a 10-mile, five-mile, five-kilometer and kids’ one-mile race. Participants accrue points toward cash prizes in the Armadillo Cup, which awards top point earners in an array of male and female age categories. Those interested can register online atwww.texas10series.com. Early bird costs are $45 for the 10-mile race, $35 for the five-mile event, $25 for the five-kilometer race and $15 for the kids’ one-mile run. Registration fees increase as race day approaches.

 

 

Have a Lemonade and Fight Childhood Cancer in Sienna June 11

I’ve always loved Toll Brothers homes.  They are beautiful.  I was so happy to read that they annually host lemonade stands in several communities in which they build to raise money for childhood cancer research, treatment and cures.   This is called “Lemonade Days” through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).   The parents of Alexandra “Alex” Scott founded ALSF after Alex, diagnosed with cancer at age 1, told her parents when she was 4 that she wanted to sell lemonade so that she could give the money to doctors so they could find a cure.

Sounds like an amazing child with a great idea doesn’t it?   Here in Sienna we get the chance to help keep Alex’s dream alive on Saturday, June 11 from noon to 4 at the model homes in Sawmill Lake (9806 and 9810 Maroon Peak).

Grab your kids, buy a few cups and help Toll Brothers reach their goal of supporting this very worthy cause.
