Hey Frisco!  Your friendly nature has been noticed!  Rand McNally and USA Today  have named you as a finalist in the Best of the Road Rally contest.

Frisco is a finalist to be named Friendliest Small Town.  (”Small towns” are apparently any place with a population of less than 150,000, which seems like an overly broad definition.)

A two-person team will be visiting the finalist cities between June and mid-July, when they will announce the winners.  You can bet that our city leaders will be rolling out the red carpet.  I hope the residents will all offer a firm handshake and a warm smile to welcome the judges as well.
