Trophy Club celebrated 30 and 40 year-anniversaries at the Founder’s Day Reception, which was held at the Trophy Club Country Club on Saturday, January 17th. Approximately 240 guests enjoyed historical vignettes, food, drinks, visiting with neighbors and a ceremony with several dignitaries. Dignitaries included numerous current and past Mayors, Town Council Members and TC MUD 1 Directors, Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads, State Representative Tan Parker, NWISD Superintendent Karen Rue, Detroit Tigers outfielder Tyler Collins and Trophy Club Country Club General Manager Erik Keyser. The Trophy Club Country Club and Trophy Club Utility District No. 1 (TC MUD 1) celebrated 40 years and the Town of Trophy Club celebrated 30 years of incorporation.

“The Founder’s Day event exceeded the Committee’s expectations and feedback from attendees has been extremely positive. From our sponsors, to the history vignettes and art submissions, the music provided by our Medlin and Byron Orchestras, our special guest, Tyler Collins, and the food & atmosphere of the Club, it was a perfect evening.  We want to remind everyone that this is the first of several events we have planned this year so if you missed this one, you will have an opportunity to attend others.  Like our Facebook page so you can see what’s coming up next!”
 — 30th Anniversary Chair Susan Edstrom & Vice-Chair Charisse Foy

The 30th Anniversary Art Contest received submissions from residents and students enrolled in Trophy Club schools.

Out of 23 submissions, four winners were declared and their artwork is featured on notecards commemorating the 30th anniversary. The notecards are available for sale ($12 for a set of 12 cards, three of each design) and the funds will go towards other 30th anniversary events held throughout 2015.
