Addison Pacesetters (the 50+ group of Addison TX residents) meet the first Wednesday of each month at Dunn Bros. Coffeehouse on Beltline Road and learn about the Town of Addison.  This month, Brandon Graham from the Addison Streets Department, spoke to us.  Here are some interesting tidbits from his presentation.                     Brandon is responsible for the traffic signals and street light systems. There are 3 other people in the Streets Department and each of the 3 have worked 25+ years in Addison. Addison is the first city in Texas to use the automated computerized traffic control system that is in use here. What used to take 3 hours at one intersection can now be done in 45 minutes.

The city council election in Addison, Texas this year was a non-event.  With 3 candidates vying for 3 seats, the election was cancelled and the candidates sworn in as the code allows. Next year, in 2011, in addition to council seats up for grabs, the mayor's position will also be open due to current Addison Mayor Joe Chow being term-limited and unable to run again. Don Daseke, Addison's current Mayor Pro Tempore, has been quietly holding exploratory conversations with city leaders, past and present.  Don is an entrepreneur and businessman and he held various positions in Addison before serving on the town council. He was the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the WaterTower Theatre; is a past Vice-Chairman of the Town of Addison Planning and Zoning Commission; was a member of the Add...

Addison Pacesetters (the 50+ group) meet the first Wednesday of each month at Dunn Bros. Coffeehouse on Beltline Road and learn about the Town of Addison.  This month, Neil Hewitt, member of the Addison Arbor Foundation, spoke to us.  Here are some interesting tidbits from his presentation. In April 2009, the Addison Parks & Recreation Department conducted a survey. A community garden ranked 3rd on the wish list of the participants. Attendees at the Addison Arbor Foundation pledged to participate in the community garden. The Addison Pacesetters have informally discussed the community garden concept and displayed enthusiastic support. The design and project plan for the community garden is 80% complete.  In order to maintain Addison's high standards, time and money are required to comple...

I try to never miss attending the annual Taste Addison festival.  This year, I went the last day of the event, Sunday, May 23rd.  There is always delicious food to sample, arts & crafts treasures for sale, and great people-watching.  It's the place to learn about new restaurants in the Town of Addison and to find out if you like the food they serve. My 2 favorite take-aways from this year's Taste Addison are The Italian Club of Dallas and Ziziki's.  Who knew the Italian Club has weekly Friday night "Cena" dinners and weekly Wednesday pasta nights?  I didn't, but I do now and I plan to dine there after sampling the pasta with meat sauce at Taste Addison.  Cena means "Evening Meal" in Italian, and at the Italian Club it is a 4 course Italian style dinner.  It includes a first and second c...

Addison, Texas now has a farmers market!   Less than a month ago, Four Seasons Market Addison began a farmers market at the south east corner of Belt Line Road and the Tollway (in the former Bed Bath & Beyond parking lot).  Originally open only on Sundays, the Addison farmers market was so successful that they are now open on Saturdays and Sundays.  The hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. I shopped there yesterday. In addition to the produce, vendors were selling honey, plants and herbs, cupcakes (kids were decorating their own), barbeque, crafts, and more.  The tomatoes and peaches looked so irresistible and I bought some from Little John's Plants and Produce. I'll have to make room in the refrigerator for the watermelon that's on my shopping list for next week. Stop by Village on the Parkw...

If you find yourself with a free evening between now and June 20th (2010), head over to the WaterTower Theatre at 15650 Addison Road, Addison TX for a real treat. Black Pearl Sings! is a live theater performance of a Frank Higgins play, directed by Terry Martin, featuring two powerful performances by Diana Sheehan and Liz Mikel.  These women can sing!  I attended last night's performance and am still thinking about the play. Set in the mid 1930s, the play's only characters are Susannah Mullally, a Library of Congress employee who travels the country recording lost traditional songs and Alberta "Pearl" Johnson, an inmate in an east Texas prison.  Black Pearl Sings! is the powerful and wryly funny story of these two women from radically different backgrounds and the music that unites them...

The on-again off-again rain last Sunday did not deter the residents of Addison's Midway Meadows subdivision.  Despite the damp and wind, about 100 of us used the shelter of the tents to get to know our neighbors.  The live music along with subs from Jimmy Johns lightened our spirits and filled our tummies. Addison Police, Fire & EMS personnel joined us. Koby, our K-9 pup, and his handler provided a demonstration, and an Addison police officer on his Segway zigged and zagged through the crowd. Several members of the Addison Town Council were also in attendance.  All in all, a good time was had by everyone, despite the weather!
