President's Post - Joyce Frey2013 will be another year of challenges and opportunities for our club and we look forward to them with enthusiasm. I would be remiss if I did not look back on 2012 and celebrate.
I am very pleased to have this opportunity to inform our members of the very successful year our club had in 2012 in the area of our charitable fund raising.
Our bi-annual Garage Sale permit sales cleared an impressive $12,651.03. As you know, TCWC is fortunate to be able to sell permits for the only garage sales allowed to be held in our town. I am pleased to report that the TCWC Annual Christmas Tour of Homes cleared an amazing $19,753.98 from ticket sales, ornament sales, wine pull, silent auction, donations and raffle. In addition, we had several other small income categories: pet fest treats, Belks fundraiser, directories and public donations to add up to an exciting total NET of all income for 2012 to be distributed of $33,000.00.
TCWC partnered for the first time with two charitable organizations to advertise our events to their mailing lists and volunteers, and the effect of this partnership was evident by the successful year we had. As a result, we will distribute 50% of our funds, $16,500.00, to Metroport Meals on Wheels and 25% of our funds, $8,250.00, will be distributed to Christ’s Haven for Children. The remaining 25 %, $8,250.00, will be distributed to five charitable applicants to be determined in February by the Allocations & Grants Committee.
Please join me in the spirit of celebration that we can fulfill our charitable goals so successfully and make a major impact on these organizations for the outstanding work they provide to so many dependent lives in their care.
Thank you to all the TCWC members that worked so hard to ensure these events were successful. This has been an outstanding year and one full of new faces and new adventures.

Trophy Club Resident Directories

It includes names, addresses, phone/cell numbers, and email addresses of residents who wish to have their information in it.
The book contains advertisements to make it easier to find a church, realtor, restaurants, and other services in our local area. Also provided are names and phone numbers of city and state offices, a street Home, Trophy Club town map, local babysitters, numbers for NWISD school offices, and emergency numbers, as well as non-emergency numbers for appropriate offices.
