Thursday's thunderstorms rolled in along with a cold front. This great photo by Heather Lee shows the Old Town Park Plaza under construction in front of Lewisville City Hall with ominous clouds rolling in above.

The Lewisville High School feeder zone students have submitted photographs in "The Spirit of Old Town" photo contest. Works will be displayed Sept 25th - Oct. 25th at Tierney's Cafe & Tavern. Prints are also available. You can preview the show here at their website.
There are some great photos here, and miraculously, none of them included the dirt pile.
We notice a lot of people who live in Lewisville and are on Facebook have other cities listed in their profile - either because they moved here recently, or they just never put in a city and Facebook picked one for them based on their internet provider.
If you pick a city, Facebook can show you advertising for local businesses that you could actually shop or dine at, rather than the places you probably wouldn't go.

On the evening of Sunday, July 27, Lewisville Public Safety Dispatcher Stephanie Smith (pictured) received a phone call regarding a female who was suffering from heat stroke. Just minutes into the call, the female went into full cardiac arrest. Stephanie provided a family member with CPR instructions, counting the compressions with the family member until paramedics arrived. The paramedics credited Stephanie with saving the woman's life. Good Job, Stephanie!
