President's Message
Our 33rd Leadership Lewisville class is graduating this month so I've had "leadership" on my mind. I ran across an article that this past week that talks about three essential leadership principles from the Revolutionary War that still apply today. If you're interested, check out this link for the article: http://bit.ly/RevolutionaryWarLeadership. I think you'll enjoy it.

I hope you will join us on Tuesday, May 28, for our Leadership Lewisville class graduation. They will showcase their class project that day, too - you'll be impressed!

Be sure and look through the rest of this email and follow u s on  Facebook  for up-to-the-minute information on all the great things happening here!!
 
I hope to see you often! We are, as always, better (and stronger) together !!

Lewisville Talks - City Speaker Series
The City of Lewisville is pleased to present Tom Luce, founder and chairman of Texas 2036, as our next guest in the new  Lewisville Talks – City Speaker Series , on Thursday, May 9, 7 p.m, at the MCL Grand. This series brings national influencers to Lewisville to discuss current events, trends, and ideas that can enrich our lives and create a discussion forum for the future of communities, residents, and community leaders.
