The latest estimates put it at 20,000 plus in Dallas and Collin Counties. That would include our Executive Editor, Joanna England, and frequent contributor Karen Eubank, both of whom live in East Dallas. Jo has been texting me since her house went cold Friday.

I Heart Dallas Realtors: MetroTex Young Professionals Bring Holiday Cheer to Jubilee Center in Fair Park
Do you know what the Jubilee Community Center is? The Jubilee Park & Community Center was founded in 1997 when a group of caring people figured out that families and children had no place to safely congregate in the South Dallas/Fair Park neighborhood. The mission of “Jubilee Park” is to improve the quality of life of families and kiddos living in the 62-block community bounded by I-30, Fair Park and East Grand.
