Faculty, staff and students at Plano's Faith Lutheran School gathered on Tuesday, September 18 with special guests for a public reading of the U.S. Constitution.

The event was one of hundreds of U.S. Constitution readings conducted in cities and towns across the United States to celebrate Constitution Day.

"This event was a way for us to express our respect for our country and for the U.S. Constitution and to remind ourselves, our students and our community that this document is still very relevant today," said Faith Lutheran School Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser of Wylie. "Too many are not really, truly familiar with the U.S. Constitution, what it says and what it stands for. Reading it aloud is educational and a good reminder for all of us."

The event featured the presentation of a proclamation on behalf of Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere.

The event also featured the presentation of colors by the Sons of the American Revolution East Fork-Trinity Chapter, the reading of the U.S. Constitution by members of the military, friends of Faith Lutheran School and others.

On Thursday, September 20, the Heritage Farmstead Museum, together with the Junior League of Collin County, is co-hosting Plano’s new, signature North Texas Giving Day event, Farmstead Yoga.

On Thursday, September 20, the Heritage Farmstead Museum, together with the Junior League of Collin County, is co-hosting Plano’s new, signature North Texas Giving Day event, Farmstead Yoga.  The event will feature a free yoga session including farm animals (goat yoga plus!), food from Hub Streat, healthy beverages, wagon rides, fun prizes and giveaways from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. as part of the Farmstead’s participation in North Texas Giving Day, a one-day, online giving event that benefits thousands of North Texas area non-profits.

“We invite the community to feel the calm breeze, listen to the sounds of the chickens, goats, sheep, donkey and pigs as well as the hum of the tractor passing by which will bring a smile, a sense of well-being and inner peace. We believe it should be an experience that leaves all of our friends rejuvenated, relaxed and reminded that we are all called together for a deeper purpose, “said Heritage Farmstead Museum Director of Marketing and Development Katherine Strobel.

Toni Farris, past owner of Yoga Tree Studio in Plano, will offer a yoga lesson in the meadow at the Farmstead from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring their own yoga mats. Free swag bags from Altheta Sports and Fitness will be available for the first 300 guests at the event.

“We hope this event will elevate awareness of North Texas Giving Day across Collin County,” added Strobel. “As part of this event, Heritage Farmstead Museum and Junior League are co-hosting Plano’s North Texas Giving Day Donation Station featuring information booths from a variety of area non-profits. Booths will be located across our 4 acre historic site.”

In addition to a yoga class, vendors and North Texas Giving Day donation station opportunities, guests will enjoy music and have the opportunity to take photos with the Farmstead’s chickens, sheep, donkey and pigs.

“Practicing yoga on a historic farm site with animals present is a back-to-basics move that helps you find something deeper,” said Strobel. “And, I’ve heard nature is one the deepest experiences we can have…consider the loveable farm animals a bonus!”

Last year, North Texas Giving Day brought together more than 2,700 organizations and raised $39 million to area non-profits. This year, the tenth annual North Texas Giving Day aims to raise the giving day bar once again to benefit more North Texas nonprofits.
