Thank YOU!

We are so grateful for your overwhelming response to TEAM-PRZADA's Annual Food Drive!  Because of YOUR generosity, we were able to donate multiple car-loads-full of food and supplies to both The Plano Food Pantry and The Second Chance SPCA.  We know there are many appreciative Plano citizens and canine and feline recipients.  It is truly a blessing to get to serve so many wonderful clients and friends that never hesitate to give back....and for that, we are THANKFUL {FOR YOU}!

As a small appreciation, I would love to share one of my treasured recipes, just in time for Thanksgiving.  It comes from my beloved sister, Joyce, who makes the most divine pecan pie. 


·       3 eggs

·       1 cup sugar

·       1 cup white Karo

·       1 t. vanilla

·       1/2 stick butter

·       1/8 t. salt

  • Mix ingredients and pour into prepared pie crust;  cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until set.
Indulge & Enjoy!

Name Change....From Haggard Estates to West Park Estates

*****Update*****  As of 2013, this development is now named West Park Estates.

Many of us, especially our children, grew up driving past the Haggard Farm while running afternoon or Saturday morning errands!  What city the size of Plano has a real farm with cattle lazing in the pastures, llamas grazing under the trees and a field of maize waiting to be harvested, always reminding us that Plano was once a farming community?  Seeing the windmill has long been a favorite announcement of our three year old grandson, Little Man L, as his mama’s car approached the farm, “I see the windmill!”

Not too long ago we began hearing rumors that the Haggard Family had decided to sell this scenic spot, located on the corner of Custer Road and Park Boulevard,  a piece of prime real estate for sure.  And soon, construction equipment arrived on the North corner of this historic and once proud pasture, as the rumor turned to reality. Toll Brothers had purchased the land!  This future site of Haggard Estates is comprised of 59 acres on the northern half of the farm.  The project is currently in the land prep-stage, with an anticipated opening date of the Spring of 2013. 

Toll Brothers is a fine home builder, known nationally for quality workmanship, style and the finished product.  One of their more recent and sought after Plano neighborhoods, that you may have seen, is Preston Lakes located off Ohio and Parker Road.  No doubt, like other Toll Brother communities, Haggard Estates will be a much sought after home site in the near future.  For more information, please click on the link… Toll Brothers/Haggard Estates

TEAM-PRZADA's Annual Food & Supply Drive

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
This is the season, isn't it? It is the time of year when we verbalize what we are thankful for. There is much to appreciate year round, but it seems especially appropriate to take this time as the holiday season begins to count our blessings and to think of what we can do to help others. There are always opportunities to help, in both big and small ways. In fact, it has become a yearly and well-loved tradition for TEAM-PRZADA to organize a food and supply drive for both The Plano Food Pantry and The Second Chance SPCA in Plano. It is hard to believe the year is flying by so quickly and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Since our little drive has become so successful and very much appreciated by both agencies, our team is reaching out to YOU, dear readers, to help make this year's drive an even bigger success. TEAM-PRZADA will collect and deliver donations before Thanksgiving. If you would like to participate, browse the list below. You can make a donation one of two ways:
1. Please bring your items to Christ United Methodist Church, room N158, The Family Living classroom during the week of November 5th, 2012, Sunday, November 11, 2012 will be our pick up date. If you plan to leave your contribution in our SS classroom before the 11th, please mark them TEAM-PRZADA.
2. Email Nancie@ and she will coordinate a local pick up on Monday, November 12th, 2012.
