LGNA’s July meeting has traditionally a covered-dish dinner to allow neighbors a relaxed venue for getting to know each other. But this year, we decided to change things up. Thanks to our good friend Matt Mortimer at the Blue Goose, we had a fajita party this year. Blue Goose provided us with fajitas, tortillas, chips, rice and beans. And as if that wasn’t enough, he brought some tasty sopapillas too! In keeping with the fiesta theme, we had a dips/salsa contest with prizes coutesy of Blue Goose. In addition to 12 salsa entries, dozens of tasty side dishes and dessert graced the tables.
About 60 people showed up to catch up with their neighbors and make new friends. Special guests included Neil Emmons, District 14 Planning Commissioner and Ryan Trimble of Rep. Dan Branch’s office. Officer Chris Dorword of the Dallas Police Department who patrols our neighborhood also joined us with Cadet Brandon Sampson.
Our prize winners in the salsa contest were:
First Place: Neil Emmons (Pictured)
Second Place: Allison Kravetz
Third Place: Rusty Daniel
