The Road Trip on Jan. 9 will provide an impactful experience on many levels for up to 100 adult participants who will be transported on chartered buses for a daylong interactive and service field trip. The event fulfills Hassler’s passion to make a difference in the Arlington community even before she opens the doors.

Up to 100 adults will win a digital offer card with a year of free Chick-fil-A meals (52 meals with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries and a medium beverage).

Registration begins at the restaurant at 6 a.m. on Jan. 9th and will continue until 9 a.m. or when 100 people are registered, whichever comes first. The event will last through approximately 5 p.m. on Jan. 9.

-The community event is open to guests living near the restaurant with a list of eligible zip codes and complete rules found at https://thechickenwire.chick-fil-a.com/News/Future-Openings.

The celebration also includes a children’s book drive benefiting a local youth organization reflecting Hassler’s desire to positively impact and support in the community. Since 2014, Chick-fil-A has donated nearly 70,000 books to 341 local organizations in 45 states and Washington, D.C.

Get Your Christmas Lights Put Up By Christmas Lights & Sirens (Local Off Duty Firemen)

Posted by Jennifer Carles on Thursday, November 15th, 2018 at 10:20 AM

If you have been thinking of having Christmas lights put up this year, you know how difficult it can be to find trustworthy professionals that won’t bust your holiday budget! We highly recommend you give the gentlemen at Christmas Light & Sirens a call- these local off duty DFW Firefighters have been in the business for 10 years.

In one simple, affordable quote over the phone, they can provide installation, removal, and year round storage of your lights! This is a great deal because most companies make you provide your own lights and charge you extra when they take them down! Here’s what makes them unique:

Bulbs:

They are exclusively using commercial grade, SMD (Surface Mounted Diode) C9 LED bulbs. The brightest, longest lasting, C9 on the market- available in color or white. Equivalent to 7 diode bulbs making them 40% brighter, they are sealed and waterproof!

Wiring:

They use SPT-2 18 gauge wire. What does that mean? It means the insulation is 0.045” thick not 0.030” providing longevity and UV light damage resistance. It means they care enough to use the highest quality product available to ensure your home looks good throughout the light season and for years to come.

Timers:

Now I bet you never gave much thought to a timer but with 225 customers they do! They use a 15amp 1850watt timer with a photocell. When the sun goes down, the lights come on. And the customer can choose 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours of light. Even sunset to sun rise if they prefer with a simple turn of the dial.

Service:

100% satisfaction guaranteed!
No questions asked!
Unlimited warranty work repair at NO cost!

Just head to their Facebook page to check out their work and read all the positive reviews!  In fact, they came out to my house last week to install my holiday lights and their customer service and workmanship was exemplary!

Don’t wait though, their appointments are booking up fast! Just call (214) 232-2229 and mark one more thing off your holiday to-do list! #ChristmasLights
