We enjoy this time of year when schools are back in session, football is in the air and our calendars are overflowing with things to do.
After a long, hot summer — which officially ends Saturday with the start of autumn — we’re just glad to know the hot temperatures will soon be a mere memory.
It’s the busy season in Denton — where community is all about education, helping others, planning fundraisers and celebrating holidays. It’s when the temperatures begin to cool that we see more people out and about, listening to music around the Square, out tending lawns and chatting across fences along our neighborhoods or cooking up a tailgate specialty at Apogee Stadium before a University of North Texas game.
This is also the time of year where we have several dining cards to use almost anywhere in the city, we’re stocking up on giant candy bars and we’re busy buying tubs of cookie dough from all of the endearing youngsters knocking on our front doors.
And each fall, we find ourselves cheering for our football teams — the Mean Green, the Broncos, the Raiders and the Wildcats not to mention the Argyle Eagles, Aubrey Chaparrals, Calvary Lions, Krum Bobcats, Lake Dallas Falcons, Liberty Warriors, Pilot Point Bearcats, Ponder Lions and the Sanger Indians. And that’s just a few of the teams and sports we enjoy covering and reading about.
So as the evening temperatures begin dipping — and staying — at 50 degrees, we’ll see you in the stadium stands. We might stop for a chat as we begin raking the colorful leaves falling from many of our Denton trees. And we’ll be seeing you at the many events coming up — whether it’s an event at one of the schools or on Denton’s downtown Square or a fundraiser for one of our many groups that support our community.
We’ll be seeing you around this season.
