Fall Fly Days is this weekend at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison.  The event coincides with the Pontiac Southern Nationals Car Show.  Attending this event is always nostalgic for me, as my dad was a WWII Navy Pilot.  The Cavanaugh Museum was always on his list of places to visit when he was in Dallas. Dad was stationed in the Pacific and flew TBM Avengers.  I will always remember how excited he was to the the Avenger at the Cavanaugh Museum. Warbird Rides will be available for a fee.  Visitors are also invited to take cockpit tours of some of the aircraft.

You've heard of the "dog days of summer" but now the Town of Addison is putting a twist on the phrase. The outdoor pool at the Addison Athletic Club is scheduled to close (for humans) on Labor Day.  However, the annual doggy splash day will be held on Saturday morning, September 7th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. If you are an Addison resident with a membership card to the AAC (one-time $10 fee for as long as you live in town), come out and support the dogs! All participating dogs must have a current rabies tag or proof of vaccination. The fee is $5 per dog. Humans will not be allowed to swim.

Addison Pacesetters (Addison, Texas residents 50+ years of age) meet the first Wednesday of each month at Dunn Bros. on Belt Line Road and learn about the Town of Addison. This month, we had two presentations at the monthly gathering. First up was Carrie Rice and Levi, followed by Neil Gayden from the Health Department. Communications and Marketing Director Carrie Rice introduced the new CodeRED emergency notification system that will replace the Reverse 911 alert system. If you are currently signed up for the Reverse911 system, you will have to re-register for CodeRED.  It is a geo-targeted system that provides the most current, up-to-date weather alerts or other emergency notifications (including West Nile spraying) and more.

There is a special government Home Renovation Loan Program with Addison TX FHA 203K Loans.  Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). A home buyer or existing home owner can remodel or update their home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program. "Luxury items" such as a hot tub or a swimming pool are not allowed with this FHA loan program. You can repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, replace appliances and flooring, add wallpaper, or even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of your home because of more square footage). The biggest advantage with this government loan program is that instead of having...
