    October 2, 7:30 PM @ Courtyard Theater
    1509 H Avenue
    Plano, TX 75074

    It didn't make any difference how Zane Williams went about writing a song, it just came out country. You might say Zane didn't so much find country as country found him. And that suits him just fine. "Everything I wrote just sounded country because I was telling stories that I could relate to; that other people relate to," he said. "I believe that's what makes a great country song." You don't have to listen to Zane's music long to recognize he reaches deep within his soul to pour out songs like, "Pablo and Maria." But if you listen to his, "99 Bottles," you also know Zane likes everybody to kick up their heels and have a good time on a Friday night. Zane is also one of the featured artists on Troubadour Texas, a television show documenting his rising career. "I can honestly say I'm doing what I love," Zane says. "And I'm where I need to be."

  4. National Night Out

    October 7, All Day @ Local neighborhood

    National Night Out is an annual event hosted by the National Association of Town Watch and occurs the first Tuesday in October this year. The Plano Police Department participates in National Night Out and is proud of the commitment our community has to this program. The primary purpose of National Night Out is to get neighbors to leave their front porch lights on, showing their support with their local police departments in the fight against crime. Neighbors are encouraged to get out of their houses and meet other neighbors in the area and get to know them. The theory being that if neighbors meet and get to know each other, they are more apt to report suspicious activity in their neighborhood rather than “look the other way” when they see something noteworthy. When you know your neighbors and watch out for them, overall crime in the area is reduced.

    National Night Out is an annual event hosted by the National Association of Town Watch and occurs the first Tuesday in October this year. The Plano Police Department participates in National Night Out and is proud of the commitment our community has to this program. The primary purpose of National Night Out is to get neighbors to leave their front porch lights on, showing their support with their local police departments in the fight against crime. Neighbors are encouraged to get out of their houses and meet other neighbors in the area and get to know them. The theory being that if neighbors meet and get to know each other, they are more apt to report suspicious activity in their neighborhood rather than “look the other way” when they see something noteworthy. When you know your neighbors and watch out for them, overall crime in the area is reduced.
