Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/4/10 4:08:49 (1377 reads)

Open in new windowWith apologies for the late notice, we'd like to pass along this invitation that Congressman Michael Burgess sent to Lewisville High School Principal Jeffrey Kajs:

Dear Principal Kajs:

I wanted to extend an invitation to your students and their parents to attend the 2015 North Texas U.S. Service Academies Forum which will be held on Saturday, April 11th at Lewisville High School! This informational forum provides interested middle and high school students an excellent opportunity to learn more about our nation's service academies, requirements for admission and the selection process. School principals, counselors, coaches and teachers are welcome to attend, too. Please share this event invitation with your students as widely as possible via announcements, posting, emails, social media, etc.

North Texas U.S. Service Academies Forum
Date: Saturday, April 11, 2015
Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 Noon; Registration opens at 7:30 AM
Note: This is a "come & stay" event!
Place: Lewisville High School
1098 W. Main Street
Lewisville, Texas 75067

Representatives from congressional offices and all five academies (U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and U.S. Air Force Academy), and ROTC as well as current academy cadets and midshipmen will be on hand. They will be available to talk with North Texas students, parents and educators on a one-to-one basis about the possibilities associated with attending these premier educational institutions and the challenging careers they generate.

This free event will begin at 8:00 AM; registration opens at 7:30 AM. It is not a come and go event but "come and stay!" The Forum will be conducted at Lewisville High School.

In addition, this event is of primary importance to current juniors who may NOW begin the application process to receive a congressional nomination to one of the service academies. My nomination application will be available for pickup by those students interested in entering the academies in summer 2016.

For more information, please contact Robin Vaughan in my Lake Dallas office by email: robin.vaughan@mail.house.gov or phone: 940-497-5031.

It is my privilege to serve you in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Sincerely,

Michael C. Burgess, M.D.
Member of Congress

Faulkner, Hearne, Wood to take Texas Tunes stage April 18

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2015/4/8 13:18:43 (975 reads)

Open in new windowTom Faulkner, Michael Hearne and Beth Wood will take the stage Saturday, April 18, at 8 p.m., as the fourth act of the fifth annual Texas Tunes concert series.

The show will be held in the Performance Hall of Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street. Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for seniors age 60 and older or children age 12 and younger, and can be purchased at MCLGrand.tix.com.

Lewisville residents are able to purchase single-show tickets for $10 each, either in advance at City Hall or on the performance date at the MCL Grand box office. Discount tickets are not available online. Current driver’s license or utility bill will be required to verify residency.

Tom Faulkner brings a unique blend of Texas rock, blues, Cajun and Tejano music. His music is a heartfelt abandonment of musical trends and a passionate embrace of the rich ethnic heritage of "Texico."

What is "Texico?" As Faulkner explains it, the State of Texas grew out of the areas that surround it -- most notably, Mexico, Louisiana and New Mexico. Most of the songs on his latest album were written in, or near, the places to which they refer. They convey a sense of romance that overwhelms him every time he travels through a wonderfully diverse world all its own. Producing his own material meant he didn't have to compromise on any of it, and the result is a solid, full-strength collection of Texas rooted music.

Michael Hearne offers up a guitar virtuosity and a mastery of country swing /southwestern Americana stylings.

Beth Wood is a musical triple-threat: a thoughtful songwriter, a talented multi-instrumentalist, and a supple, colorful vocalist.

The Texas Tunes series features performers from music halls and festivals throughout the state who present great music in a variety of genres, but all with that unique Texas flair that has made the state a hotbed for fans of live music.
