Yesterday was a good day for North Arlington. Last night was the Grand Opening of the new location for Texas Land and Cattle on Copeland Rd. The event was kicked off with a remote broadcast of The Hard Line, which is the 3:00 - 7:00 pm sports talk show on AM radio station 1310 the Ticket. A silent auction was held and their guest was Hall of Fame, Dallas Cowboy Offensive Tackle, Rayfield Wright. Mr. Wright is a very engaging individual and was so gracious to my wife and I. We enjoyed the conversation very much. His wonderful benevolent foundation has helped over 50 kids gain financial support through college.
The food at TLC is really remarkable. I don't see how they can provide the amount and quality for the price. If you haven't had the pleasure of this experience, I certainly suggest that you give it a try. I don't think that you'll be disappointed.
On another note, the Neighborhood Walmart that just opened on Wednesday has pledged $1,000 to help the Rocquemore Elementary kids program. Ms. Vandal wants to contribute to the community and participate in the process of uplifting these at risk kids. Another major contributor is Best Buy. Shaun Ogdie is the store manager, and a native Arlington resident. He has contributed two Kindles, pledged to take the families of the top performing girl and boy to dinner, and he has also stated that any apartment complex manager that participates in the effort to uplift these kids will recieve 20% off all appliances that are purchased for the complex. We have been gratified and blessed by the generosity of some of the businesses in our community. I am certain that through the works of good people in our community we can turn our neighborhoods into something that we can all be proud of
