LTNA Supports Police and Fire-Rescue during the Holidays
Thursday, November 28, 2019, 10:00 am
For the tenth year in a row, Lakewood Trails is providing a Thanksgiving meal for the Station 55 fire-rescue personnel who are on duty that day, and 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. The following items are needed for the Thanksgiving meal: Turkey, potatoes, dressing, gravy, vegetable sides, salad or jello molds, rolls, and desserts. We usually deliver the meal to the firefighters on Thanksgiving morning around 10:00 am. The date for delivering the Christmas meal to the police is TBA.
Thanks again for your help in this worthwhile cause!

LTNA Board Smokin' at the 55
Posted on Oct 24th, 2019
Our Lakewood Trails Neighborhood has a history of supporting our brave firefighters at “The Double Nickel”, Dallas Fire Rescue Station 55. We have purchased several BBQ grills over the years and have provided Thanksgiving meals for our guys on duty and away from their families on this special holiday. Recently at their request, we bought them a heavy duty smoker which they immediately put to use. They showed their appreciation by preparing a delicious BBQ dinner for the LTNA board members and their families. Smoked brisket, pulled pork and smoked sausages along with many sides provided by the board members made a scrumptious meal and a great opportunity for us to meet and socialize. PHOTOS
We are thankful for the service of these brave men and women and as a neighborhood we are committed to continuing to support them in any way we can.

But we will have a Holiday Lights YOM in December. Visit North Haven Gardens’ website https://www.nhg.com to to learn more.
