North Texas Giving Day

Here’s a great way to hear more about each of these non-profits. We’ve collected our six great Plano Podcast episodes featuring these guests in an easy to listen playlist. Hear why we consider these six “The Giving Bunch” because of their service to our community.

Episode 31: Plano Farm Life

We take a look at Plano farm life, both past and present. Spring brought new life to the Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano this year – as well as a heartbreaking reminder of the struggles that faced the area’s original settlers. We take a look back at Plano’s rural roots in this episode. Plus – if you’ve ever driven by Wells Brothers farm store and wondered what’s inside – you’ll find out, because we take you there to meet Richard Wells for our Plano Podcast Curiosity. Finally, meet one of Plano’s historic characters: a sheep breeder, poker player and national celebrity Ammie Wilson.

Episode 27: Home for the Holidays, Plano

Will you be home for the holidays in Plano? If so, we’ve got you covered with this episode. Guests share the very best Plano offers in food, festivities, faith and ways to give as the season begins. Our Curiosity takes you back to the Great Texas Snow of 1929 – and shares how your family can commemorate that historic event: at Lantern Light at the Heritage Farmstead this year. And finally, our Character is pretty special. In fact, it’s a pair that you’ll want to stay on the good side of this holiday season.

Happy Holidays, Plano!
