Spraying will begin at 9 p.m. in the City of Dallas, earlier in other cities. Residents in all neighborhoods of Dallas should expect spraying to occur sometime between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. According to Dr. Roger Nasci and Dr. Janet McAllister of the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) a second application is recommended to kill the larvae that have hatched since the first spraying event. Until the results of tonight’s spraying mission are known, it is undetermined whether aerial spraying will occur Tuesday evening. CDC Representatives will be in North Texas this week, surveying and analyzing the region’s efforts to combat the West Nile Virus and will make recommendations on how to proceed. #westnilevirus #dallas
The location of the first house, and where you will collect your wine glasses and your VIP wristbands (if you purchased a VIP ticket) is at 5327 Goodwin Ave. (Please scroll down to the bottom of the linked post for a map).
The 2013 Wine Walk is completely sold out, so if you did not already purchase a ticket online, you are going to have to wait till the Fourth Annual Wine Walk in 2014! And next time make sure you reserve your spot earlier!
For the rest of you who bought tickets online, we have your name and we are expecting you. You do not need to bring a printout or a receipt or anything like that, we already have your name. If you look younger than 30, please bring your ID with you. We need to make sure that every person with a wine glass is over 21.
City of Dallas – Due to the spread of the West Nile Virus and high infection rates, aerial spraying will begin tonight in Dallas County. In the City of Dallas aerial spraying will be conducted from 10pm – approximately 1am, and cover the area bounded by Interstate 635 to the north and east, the Dallas North Tollway to the west and Interstate 30 to the south.
We would like to thank the hosts who opened up their porches, yards and homes--Chris and Beth Jones, 5411 Miller Avenue; Huy & Julie Do, 5432 Miller Avenue; Henley and Wendy Quadling 5354 Vickery Boulevard; and Marty and Melanie Buckholt, 5419 Vickery Boulevard. Also, thanks to our volunteers who poured wine and served food and to Julie Do, our 2012 WW coordinator. The food was catered by Vickery Place resident Debbie Simurda and her business partner Pam Barron introducing their new catering business, Fresh Catering DFW.
We are thrilled at the turnout but at the same time saddened that we could not accommodate all neighbors who want to attend. We will hold other wine events in the future, so please watch for your Vickery Place News each month, check our web page, or follow us here.
