For anyone who has an interest or a passion for gardening, we offer seasonal garden news, information, and “tips” you can use to indulge your inner “Mother Nature” or “Johnny Appleseed.” The Garden Corner also offers you opportunity to share your own experiences, information or questions about all things lawn and garden-related! We welcome your comments/ pictures OR ideas for articles. This Garden Corner is all about going wild - planting wildflowers and an update on our Blackland Prairie neighborhood project.
Christmas Meal for DPD
Wednesday, December 25, 2019, TBD at DPD Substation, 9915 Northwest Hwy, Dallas, TX 75238
For the tenth year in a row, Lakewood Trails provided a Thanksgiving meal for the Station 55 fire-rescue personnel who are on duty that day. We will also provide a Christmas meal for the Dallas Police Department Northeast Substation, both 1st and 2nd shifts.
Every year, our LTNA neighbors have generously contributed either food or cash donations to help make these efforts a great success and have helped deliver the meals. Needless to say, our support has been much appreciated by our firefighters and our local police personnel who work during the holidays.
If you would like to contribute money to the meals, you may either drop off or mail cash or check (payable to LTNA) to Bethany Andres at 7064 Chantilly. You can also donate online (Contact Us/Online Payments) using PayPal. Either way, please consider renewing your LTNA Membership for 2020 at the same time ($20 per household; $70 for a Friend of Lakewood Trails membership). An added benefit with your 2020 membership is the LTNA Partners Card that will be sent to your home, offering discounts to sixteen local businesses.
If you would like to donate food or would like to help deliver (kids are welcome!), please email Bethany at email@example.com or call/text her at 214-287-5700 to find out how you can help. The date for delivering the Christmas meal to the police is TBA.
Thanks again for your help in this worthwhile cause!

Councilmember Paula Blackmon: Help for Sable Ridge Apartments Fire Survivors
Posted on Dec 5th, 2019
Early yesterday morning, a fire broke out at the Sable Ridge Apartments on Abrams just north of Northwest Highway. This four alarm fire displaced approximately 90 residents who lost their homes, clothes, belongings and children’s toys. The Dallas Fire and Rescue teams did an amazing job of helping the families get to safety without any injuries and keeping the fire contained to a single building. (KTVT)
The City of Dallas - City Hall is working with The American Red Cross, The Salvation Army of North Texas, other nonprofits and churches to provide housing, clothing and other services for these residents.
We are asking for donations of gift cards to local retail outlets so we can help these families rebuild their lives. Any gift cards can be dropped off in the District 9 Council Office in City Hall, the teller line of Veritex Bank Lakewood Branch at 2101 Abrams Road between the hours of 8:30 am – 5 pm, the administrative office of Wilshire Baptist Church at 4316 Abrams Road between the hours of 9 am - 4 pm, and Lake Highlands Automotive at 10702 Audelia Road between the hours of 7 am - 6 pm.
Thank you for your generosity. My office will be in touch with further details as they become available.
Yard of the Month Update
Posted on Oct 24th, 2019
December will be a special Yard of the Month celebrating the spectacular holiday decorations in our neighborhood (which we notice some of you have already started on!). As such, the Beautification Committee will give you a little extra time to get your yards festive. Judging will take place around December 8, 2019. We will award several yards for this special holiday month include a first place, second place, third place and honorable mentions.
We can't wait to see all the beautiful lights and creative decorations!! For inspiration, check out some of our beautiful holiday yards from 2018 in our PHOTOS.
Remember you need to be a current member of LTNA to be considered for Yard of the Month. The First Place Winner will receive a $50 gift gift card from CENTRAL MARKET, and a sign to display in their yard for that month.
Sadly, North Haven Gardens, our generous Lakewood Trails Yard of the Month sponsor, suffered severe damage from the October 20th tornado. Visit North Haven Gardens’ website https://www.nhg.com to to learn more on their rebuilding progress.
