“The Key to getting things done is connecting people. Often the right people are already in place, they just need to be energized, utilized, and encouraged to work together.” ~ Miles Atkins.
As the New Year begins, we reflect on the tremendous good-will found throughout our community in 2021!! The thoughtfulness and compassion of so many in and around the Trophy Club area brought forth a successful finish to meeting the goals for the year. It cannot go without saying that many have given generously their time, talents and monetary gifts this year in a variety of ways, which brought opportunities for us to continue to connect as a community. From overcoming the frozen challenges of Snowmaggenon which brought neighbors together like never before; to the Christmas in the Park Celebration which created a glow of community Christmas spirit, including a very successful Touchdown for Toys! To all who planned, organized, participated in and attended….we thank you!!!
For the 2022 year ahead, planning and maintenance will be a focus for several goals. The council continues to envision more opportunities development which are important to Trophy Club’s residents. Our council wants our families and residents to have options here to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as walking/hiking/biking, kayaking/canoeing, and parks and recreation.
Throughout 2021, the council continued to seek opportunities for improved infrastructure. We will continue to take on this challenge and forge ahead by seeking opportunities and progress to help make improvements in our community.
“Creativity is just connecting things…connecting experiences to synthesize new things” ~ Steve Jobs.
Thus, Town Council and I hope to continue to engage inspiration and talent and motivation that already exist within our community to make us stronger, better, and prosperous. We are excited to begin this New Year with you and are ready to take on the adventures that lie ahead.
“A New Year….is like a new sunrise….of Hope, of Prosperity, of Happiness. It’s like a new beginning...of Thoughts, of Words, of Actions; It’s like a new day...of Energy, of Strength, of Ideas; It’s like a bunch of whole new things...of Prayers, of Friends, of Love!!” ~ Anonymous.
Mark this as a new start, a new journey! On behalf of the Town Council and staff family, we wish you and your family the most enjoyable adventurous year ahead!
Happy New Year!!!

As 2021 comes to an end, it’s a perfect time to reflect. Though there were challenges for many, the year also had life settle into a new normal. I’m optimistic that 2022 will be better and I’m also so thankful and proud of our community. I saw many acts of kindness as we came together to help those in need and support each other through business closures, loss of loved ones, financial hardships and so much more. The holidays can be very difficult, so we want you to know that you’re not alone…you matter…you are important…you are appreciated…you are loved! Let’s continue to be there for our community and be the light for one another as we enter 2022!

Happy November Trophy Club!
As we head into this month, it is certainly one to reflect on the things we are thankful for! Things I know I am thankful for this month include; a healthy fiscal budget for the year ahead, the new Town Council leadership taking their place at the dais, our dedicated community veterans who have served to provide us our freedoms, and of course the holidays themselves which hopefully everyone is able to spend with their loved ones.
As we know, in August, Trophy Club Town Councilmembers Gregory Wilson (Place 2) and Michael Geraci (Place 5) both resigned from Town Council resulting in the calling of a Special Election November 02, 2021. While I was happy for both gentlemen and their endeavors, it was bittersweet to say goodbye as they both had such an impact during their time at the dais. Thanks to those who ran and congratulations to those who won. I am looking forward to having both Jeff Beach and LuAnne Oldham on Council. This is a great way to go into the new fiscal year, with new ideas and new perspectives to help us on the path of success.
Last month was the start of our new FISCAL year. The FY 22 Budget is the collective efforts of all departments to meet the clear vision for our community, as laid out by your Town Council and you, our residents, as reflected in the 2021 Citizens’ Survey. You’ve spoken and we’ve responded by maintaining the high level of service that you’ve come to know and expect while holding our current tax rate steady, enabling us to focus on the long-term health and stability of our Town’s economic position.
Please join us as we honor those who have served in the US Armed Forces at our Veteran's Day Celebration on November 11, from 11am-12pm at our Military Veteran's Memorial Park, courtesy of the Metroport Veterans Association and GallantFew, Inc. Veterans Day is a time to respect and celebrate the people in your life who have served in the military and have been discharged. It’s different from other holidays that focus on military members like Memorial Day, Armed Services Day, Women Veterans Day, and international holidays like Armistice Day and Remembrance Day.
In 1863, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving as “the last Thursday of November next” and implored “the all mighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment peace, harmony, tranquility and union.” I hope you remember these words as you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving! A reminder that all Trophy Club Town offices will be closed beginning on Wednesday, November 24th at 12 PM through Friday, November 26th, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services will remain in operation at all times. In addition, there will also be NO collection of trash/recycle/bulk materials on Friday, November 26th. The weekly schedule will be delayed by one day, with all collections being completed on Saturday, November 27th.
