Season's Best Award - Summer

The Summer Season's Best landscape award has been given to Lee and Julie Harrington at 7413 Breakers Lane.

For years, I would travel from Marchman up Mt Vernon toward home and during the stop at Breakers, survey the EMPTY stretch of turf--always with this thought: Please! Just plant at least one tree to soften the hard lines, the imposing structure and to provide a frame for this beautiful house. Well, I never imagined the change to come after Lee and Julie Harrington bought this home.

The Fall award will be given around the end of October.  All HOA member residences can be considered and nominations are welcome by email to


You can find more pictures of their amazing and beautiful landscape on our website by clicking here.


The EFCHOA Board wants to express our thanks for all their efforts to make our neighborhood attractive!

Help North Texas Food Bank Collect

220,000 lbs of Peanut Butter


Every September the North Texas Food Bank hosts a peanut butter drive to help combat hunger in Collin County. According to Feeding America, there are more than 38,000 food insecure children in Collin County.

Plano Neighborhood Services is helping reach the 220,000 pounds of peanut butter goal by awarding the Nuttiest Neighborhood Award to the neighborhood that collects the most peanut butter per household during the month of September.

Due to COVID-19, the drive is going virtual this year. There are 2 ways you can help.

  • Donate virtually through our Estates of Forest Creek NTFB Peanut Butter Team.  Your gift will be used by the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) to purchase peanut butter for the drive.
  • Direct drop off to Plano Campus donation door:

    North Texas Food Bank: HEB Door
    3677 Mapleshade Ln.
    Plano, TX 75075

Direct drop off won't be credited to our team but it is still a great way to help fight hunger in our county!

... And who knows - maybe we will take the title of Nuttiest Neighborhood away from Whiffletree this year!
