Join Us for a Trip to Austin Continued from page 1 Grapevine alumna, to give me her thoughts on the value of the program. Susan said, “Leadership Grapevine provides a tremendous opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of how Grapevine works, its infrastructure and all the wonderful amenities the City of Grapevine has to offer. This class is vital to anyone who works, lives or plays in Grapevine. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for this city and the people that run it. The passion for this community is evident in the actions taken by our city leaders, businesses, education system, outreach organizations and much more who all continue to work together to make Grapevine thrive. I challenge anyone who thinks they know Grapevine to take this class.” Legislative Day is a great opportunity for business leaders; and when the legislature is in

session, the Chamber takes a group to Austin. This day really allows you the opportunity to see how state government really works. Bruno Rumbelow, Grapevine City Manager said it best, “The Austin trip is important for our Leadership Grapevine group because they get a ‘front row’ seat to learn about the issues of the day, the importance of those decisions made in there for all of us and get to meet those elected leaders from our area who represent us and who ultimately help shape the future of our State. What happens is Austin affects Grapevine; our schools, our city, our residents and businesses. If you didn’t have a great appreciation for how the State of Texas impacts many parts of our community - you will when we return.” The current agenda of the Texas Legislature will have a great impact on our community, our

Grapevine Community Award Winners Member of the Year Winner Allied Waste / Republic Waste Services Allied Waste / Republic Waste Services have been an active member of the Grapevine area since 1977. They have been active in all aspects of our community from a monetary and volunteerism to the Chamber, City Projects and Civic Organization. 2012 Chairman’s Award NJ Graphic Design Inc. NJ Graphic Design, Inc. is a chamber member business that works hard for the Grapevine Chamber and our community. They “donate” their services to produce our monthly newsletter at no cost, and produce our directory at a tremendous discount – all the while increasing the quality of our image. It doesn’t stop with the chamber, as they also donate to several area non-profits – giving of their time and talents to make this community even better. 2012 Don Ramey Community Spirit Winner Chris Reyher Chris Reyher has served as the Chair of Citizens for a Better Grapevine, a volunteer group that created and organized citizen based Vote Yes efforts in 2011 and 2012 for two very important City Council initiated referendums that will benefit Grapevine for many years to come, 2011 Crime Control Prevention District (CCPD) Election and 2012 Bond Election. Chris is also a member of Grapevine 4B Economic Development Board, member of Volunteers in Police Service, Past President of Grapevine Runners and Walkers, Alumnus of Grapevine Citizen’s Police Academy, and Volunteer for 9-11 Firefighters’ Memorial. 2012 Business Hall of Fame Winner Panda Embroidery, Paul & Dennis Slechta Panda Embroidery is a second generation business that continually strives to support and improve the community. Through support of festivals, events, the Grapevine Convention and Visitors Bureau and Grapevine Chamber, as well as several other organizations in town, they believe in community service while still maintaining a high quality business that reaches well beyond Grapevine borders.

2012 Ted Willhoite Legacy Award Winner Tricia Wood Twenty-five years ago the vision and leadership of Tricia Wood spearheaded an initiative and motivated multiple civic groups to form an alliance that would later be called GRACE. It began as a network of churches helping people who were experiencing a crisis in their lives in Grapevine when the population was only 16,000. It was a humble beginning that grew to our organization now covering the three cities of Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake and surrounding communities in Northeast Tarrant County. Tricia helped form the mission grounded in faith, and GRACE continues to help our neighbors with programming leading to self-sufficiency. 2012 D.E. Box Citizen of the Year Winner Rocky Gribble Rocky Gribble, president of Yellow Rose Productions and producer of the Grapevine Opry, started the Grapevine Opry in 1987 when there was nothing else on Main Street and has continued his dedication for over twenty-five years. His tremendous success with the Opry has supported the economic and cultural growth of the city. He donates much of his time and musical talents to numerous organizations and has been a profound influence on countless up-and-coming performers. Women’s Division Woman of the Year Paula Wilbanks Paula came to Grapevine in 1965 when she was hired by the district to teach high school English and French. Shortly afterward she became a high school Guidance Counselor for the high school students. Even though she has been retired for several years, she is still very much involved in education. She is a member of the GCISD Education Foundation and has co-chaired the New Educators’ Luncheon for the past five years.
