About The National Vietnam War Museum via nationalvnwarmuseum.org:

 
“The National Vietnam War Museum project was formalized in 1998 to develop a national venue that would create an atmosphere of learning about the Vietnam War era, and engage people of all ages, nationalities, and political points of view.
 
 
In 1999, the museum was incorporated as a 501(c) (3) corporation in the State of Texas and purchased a 12-acre site in Mineral Wells, Texas, approximately 50 miles west of Fort Worth. In addition to establishing a Board of Directors, the museum established a Board of Visitors, prominent individuals selected to advise the Board of Directors and promote the museum’s cause. The museum has also established sponsorship relationships with a number of local and national veterans’ organizations to promote the museum to their memberships.
 
 
The museum will be designed to tell the unbiased story of the more than 5 million servicemen and women who served there; the civilian contractors who supported their efforts; the Vietnamese people, their culture and history; and those on the home front, both those who supported and those who protested the war.”

Community event time! Coming up in September, there is a great community event going on right here in Arlington, Texas, to promote women’s cancer awareness and bring hope to the community. The first annual Pink Teal Luncheon is an opportunity for guests to hear about survivors and their journey with cancer. The goal is to make this an annual event raising awareness of cancers that most often affect women – Breast and Gynecologic Cancers. 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and 1 out of 100 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer by age 70. Though it is less common than breast cancer, ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
 
 
You’re invited to come participate in the inspiring dialogue between two amazing survivors – Shannon Miller, Olympian & ovarian cancer survivor and local coach, Sam Morrow, breast cancer survivor.

As a small business in Arlington, Texas, we take great pride in our local community. Each month, we like to feature an upcoming community event or an outstanding local business in our blog post. This month, the Courtyard Villa is in the spotlight!
 
 

 
 
Our owner had the privilege of working with the great staff at The Courtyard Villa a few months ago for a family member’s wedding reception. The beautiful venue offered a convenient location, full-service catering options, and a friendly and professional staff. It was the perfect place for a reception, as the amenities included a large dance floor, audio/visual equipment, quality table linens and décor, a flat panel display for a slideshow, and seating for up to 250 guests. The outside courtyard was landscaped beautifully and really set the tone for the special occasion.
