honored with Oprah's O-List twice and most recently created custom local gourmet milk soaps for the December O Issue that include local Sunnyvale Honey, Celina-located Cartemere Farms-grown heirloom cucumber extract and more. FarmHouse Fresh was founded by Shannon McLinden, once a Frisco resident, who began looking for a solution for her cracked heels. Her first product was a sea salt exfoliation trio created in 2005, that Oprah selected for her O-list proclaiming "Here's a trio of foot scrubs that smell so good, I want to serve them over berries!" The team built a corporate ranch on a hilltop in McKinney that’s designed as the company’s creative headquarters and also a sanctuary for once forgotten, neglected, and abused farm animals. A host of goats, miniature and standard donkeys, ponies and horses live out peaceful forever lives at the ranch where the employees care for them. Today, the company serves their delectable spa treatments at thousands of hotels, resorts, spas and boutiques across the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Middle East. This year, FarmHouse Fresh was voted by spas, hotels and resorts as their Favorite Body Care Line, through American Spa Magazine's Professional's Choice Awards (having been among the Top 5 Favorite Bodycare Lines over the five years prior). And their new

EXCITING GROWTH IN OUR CITY CALLS FOR SOME EXCITING OPENINGS. And nothing could be more exciting than the opening of the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center. Spa Director, Heather Tindell, alongside her center partners concluded that nearly twenty-two percent of their client base were making countless trips back and forth from Dallas Fort Worth to their location in Los Angeles for over six years. They decided it was past time for them to bring the center to North Texas. Heather spent over a decade in a career in film, modeling, television and sports broadcasting, and the medical field. She decided to combine her passion for wellness with the information she learned about the Hollywood elite to bring North Texas a spa like no other. Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center now has locations in Southlake, Flower Mound, Highland Park and now fresh for 2018...Frisco! BHRC’s medical director Dr. James Kadi is one of DFW’s leading, board certified plastic surgeons and oversees the skilled medical spa/hormone clinic team. The staff includes an experienced nurse practitioner, registered nurse, and licensed medical aestheticians who use the latest technology, nonsurgical techniques, and quality products to deliver dramatic yet natural-looking results. Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center brings state-of-the-art Los Angeles practices to Frisco. Their top-notch medical providers are pioneers in the industry. Heather spoke to me about some of the services patients can expect to transform their look just like A-list celebrities such as Dean Cain, Mel Gibson, Morgan Fairchild and Joanna Krupa have enjoyed. Fractoro - Many may have seen this featured on the E! Network's program Giuliana and Bill. This is a skin resurfacing treatment that is the answer to younger, tighter looking skin. Fractoro is a revolutionary technology that uses radio-frequency energy and micropins to achieve optimal results. Unlike CO2 treatments, with Fractoro, a patient can opt for resurfacing their neck, chest, and all other areas of the face. Fractoro allows treatments to target superficial areas of the skin (fine lines, lesions), as well as deeper tissue areas such as wrinkles and acne scars. This treatment offers very little recovery time and more visible results. Voluma XC - One of the major reasons we lose the youth look is due to volume loss in our cheeks. Voluma XC are injectables that are designed to add volume to your cheeks and cause you to look five years younger. This procedure is non-surgical and will last for two years. Body FX - If you're looking for a method to get rid of unwanted cellulite, or uneven fat areas, this exclusive procedure to Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is the perfect solution. The combination of various radio-frequency pulses work to smooth out dimpled areas in the skin and tighten the tissue in the deeper areas. The heat from the radio-frequency waves reduces the overall amount of fat cells which will then shrink the fat under the skin. Biodentical - Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as BHRT is available to clients. BHRT is designed to test and regain proper hormone balance using the lowest dosage possible to achieve optimal results. The center uses a holistic approach CONTINUED >

and only uses Bio-identical hormones and never synthetic ones. This therapy can help with weight regulation, stamina, anxiety and libido, just to name a few. Ultherapy - Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a non-surgical option to lift your neck, chin and brow? Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center offers this. Ultherapy incorporates focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin tissue without downtime. The results give you tighter, rejuvenated skin. This FDA approved method has produced wonderful results in those hard-to-treat areas such as under the chin and skin on the brow. In addition to these services, they also offer advanced injectables, including botox, chemical peels that take years off your skin within a weeks time, a HydraFacial™ that provides cleansing, exfoliating and resurfacing of the skin. This noninvasive procedure has no downtime and offers immediate results. Coolsculpting is an option for clients to freeze their fat cells with no surgery, is non-invasive and offers no downtime. Each service is specifically constructed for each client's needs. Dr. James Kadi is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon that is alongside to facilitate. Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center follows safety regulations, are HIPAA compliant and only work with top-notch medical providers, world-famous plastic surgeons and hormone specialists. Make 2018 be the year of transformation. The Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center wants to help you feel and look your best. Owner Heather Tindell stated: “My goal is that my clients experience the same level of care and treatments that actors, celebrities, and the wealthy choose at an affordable price right here in North Texas,” she says. “The Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is an anti-aging and wellness center specializing in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, vitamin supplementation, and cutting-edge aesthetic treatments.” For more information on the center and to learn about all of their services visit here: http://bhrcdallas.com/ or call 469-353-8821. 22

Frisco’s Farmer’s Market ARTICLE CINDY JOHNSON
LOOKING FOR FRESH OPTIONS FOR BRINGING FARM-TO-TABLE OPTIONS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY? Frisco Farmer's Market offers quality choices in keeping your family's health in mind. Started in 2007, the Frisco Farmers' Market continues to grow in popularity. The market was founded by the Frisco Noon Lions Club for the benefit of our community. Today, the market is managed by the Rotary Club of Frisco. Local growers offer juicy melons, peaches, vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh corn on the cob and lots more. Also offered are baked breads, meat from local ranchers, honey, arts and crafts, and various other products.The market allows consumers to have access to locally grown, farm fresh produce, enables farmers the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their customers, and cultivate consumer loyalty with the farmers who grow the produce. In 2018, The Frisco Rotary Farmers Market will strive to improve the quality and freshness of their products by enforcing rules that require that vendors grow or produce the product they sell themselves or source it directly from other farmers. Our goal is that the product purchased at each market will come straight from the field, butcher or kitchen, thus improving freshness and nutrition value.

The Frisco Rotary Farmers Market will be held on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. The first 2018 market will be held Saturday, April 21st and Saturday markets will run through October 27, 2018. Winter markets will be held on the third Saturday of November, December, January, February and March from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. As the new Frisco Rotary Farmers Market Manager, I am committed to providing the Frisco community with a source of locally grown and produced food products in a family friendly setting. Local entertainers and artists will provide entertainment each Saturday and seasonal events will be offered. The 2018 season calendar of events will be posted on the website by the end of March. As part of our vendor vetting process we ask vendors to answer various questions as a part of their application process. The vendor profile and answers to these questions will be available to customers at the market each week to facilitate contact with the vendors and meet customers special requirements for organic or chemical free products. By including any additional venues that the vendors products are sold through, we will help customers source additional products from their favorite vendors if they cannot make the Saturday market. We are currently in the process of becoming a member of Go Texan (http://www.gotexan.org/) and implementing SNAP at the market. Come grow with us!

MAYOR’S TURN M AY O R ' S M U S I N G S
ARTICLE MAYOR JEFF CHENEY PHOTOGRAPHY BRANDON FRAKES
WHEN PEOPLE THINK OF COMMUNITIES WHO ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS, WHAT COMES TO MIND? Do you think of cities in California, or western states or even Austin? Most people would not initially think of Frisco as a city who has a strong track record of protecting our environment. This is one of the surprising attributes of Frisco. We are committed to protecting and conserving our natural resources. Several mayors and many councils back, all while under the wise supervision of our City Manager, George Purefoy, we began requiring a higher standard for all home builders. Little did we know, we were setting the pace not only for North Texas but for all of America. In 2001, Frisco was the first city in America to require Energy Star standards for new single family home construction. The end result for the homeowner is a home built better from the ground up, delivering better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs. We pushed our home builders to deliver this standard because it was the right thing for families who were moving to Frisco. In 2006, Frisco began the Green Building Program. It requires all commercial and multi-family housing builders to reduce energy and water consumption, reduce pollution, protect ecosystems, and, ultimately, build sustainable developments. Because of Frisco leading the way on these building requirements, it led to Texas changing it’s building codes which resulted in more sustainable construction statewide. North Texas is a dry region which is prone to prolonged droughts. We know we need to conserve water. As recently as 2000, we used 299 gallons per capita per day (GCPD) and now we have almost cut it in half to 155 GCPD. We have reduced our water use through free sprinkler check ups by irrigation specialists for our residents and commercial properties which resulted in a reduction of 10.5 million gallons of water in 2016 alone. Also, we have decreased our water usage by incentivizing our residents with a rebate if they install a smart controller on their irrigation system. Frisco has been awarded the 2017 People’s Choice Award by the EPA for maintaining a low GPCD in a growing city. And, Frisco ranks third on the Texas Water Conservation Scorecard which is maintained by the National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club and the Galveston Bay Foundation. Now let me introduce you to the Frisco Environmental Collection Center. Tucked away at 6616 Walnut, just north of downtown Main Street, we recycle cardboard, styrofoam, motor oil, household batteries and plastic bags, just to mention a few items. We sell moving boxes at greatly reduced rates, provide paper shredding services, give away free compost, recycle household chemicals, dispose of electronics and metal appliances. Our efforts saved Frisco $850,000 in 2016 by recycling rather than sending to the landfill. We diverted 30% of overall household waste, giving Frisco one of the highest recycling rates for cities in Texas. If you are around me much, you know that I talk about quality of life for our residents. Frisco is approximately seventy square miles. We need to respect and protect this precious land because it is our home. I want to be a good steward of our environment and preserve it for future generations for their quality of life.
