Good Morning, Good Morning!

Happy May and there is a lot going on. So, as I write this, I will grab another cup of coffee, get the sleeping cat situated on my desk, Poncho at my feet and here we go.

First of all, I am thrilled beyond measure to introduce to you… www.katdonnellrealtor.com

This has been a work in progress for two years and is now ready. Of course, being an ongoing website always means ongoing updates. This is not your normal real estate agent site, as I have incorporated stats that people want to know about when moving, including city information, school information and local businesses and service providers. The listings are constantly updated as well. There is a Kat’s Corner too! Go have a look see and let me know what you think. And of course, if you are looking to sell or buy, call me, because extraordinary times demand extraordinary results.

I’d like to take a moment to welcome the newest members of the Round Town News family; Hill’s Precise Bookkeeping and CP Roofing Exteriors.

Hill’s Precise Bookkeeping is a local family owned business that works with small businesses. They offer bookkeeping and payroll services. They also provide profit/loss statements and balance sheets. For more information contact Sherry Hill at 214-918-0719.

CP Roofing Exteriors is a family and Veteran owned and run local company owned by Chris and Debbie Perry. For five years running, they have been recognized as “Best Roofer” by C & S Media for their work in Farmersville and this year, Princeton. For more information visit www.cproofingexteriors.com or call 469-264-3427.

Hey, guess what? Our beloved dentist, Dr. Draper and staff are expanding and moving into the stand alone dental building next to Dollar General and across from the strip center where Dominoes and Lavon Nails are located. They will begin taking patients May 17. The phone number is the same. Yay and congratulations!!

Like many of you, I was shocked and saddened by Dr. Nivens announcement that he had accepted a job offer in Houston. In the six years he was our superintendent, his accomplishments were many. I am grateful for the relationship I had with him, and I like to think I am a better person because of our paths crossing. Good luck Dr. Nivens, you are loved and will be missed. The school district you are moving to don’t yet realize they hit the jackpot.

News from our friends at Liberty Tax is that the new tax deadline has been extended to June 15th. This is for both filing and payments. If you need to have your taxes done, look no further. Liberty Tax has four convenient locations to serve you. 620 N. Hwy 78 in Wylie- 469.459.1701, 158 W.

Okay, now you can breathe. In honor of Spring and the move to their new location, Laser Wraps will be hosting “Blood, Sweat & Gears” on Saturday, May 15 at 704 Parker Road in Wylie. The daylong event will feature the Carter Blood Mobile for blood donations, a Car Show, Food & Drinks (BYOB) and live music by James Michael McLester, Desolation Angels, a popular cover band (think Bad Company) that can be seen at Gas Monkey, among others. This will be a happy and fun filled day. Mark your calendars!

Okay, I think I have covered everything. Happy May and may you be filled with love and light. Thank you for being who you are!

Love, Kat
