Lion Bill Dickens says we have plenty of pecans to sell and we need to spread the Christmas spirit by giving pecans to our friends. The decanters make great gifts.

Our program this week was given by Mr. Bruce Burrow, developer of our new Mall at Turtle Creek. He and his assistant, Christy Gibson, had a video presentation of the new mall, which is a total of $100 million investment with 750,000 sq. feet of retail space. It is predicted that the mall will have a total of 1,500 jobs and have a net of 900 new jobs. Projected sales of $225 million annually is expected from the retail businesses in the mall. The target date for the JC Penney store opening is September 2005, with the rest of the mall opening in the spring of 2006.

Next Tuesday our program will be Kristine Blondidillo with the new ASU Bioscience Center.
