The July issue of the Advocate will focus on women and girls in our neighborhood.

We’re limited by space, so we couldn’t fit everything in the printed magazine this time around.

This month, neighbors will read about Jodi McShan of McShan Florist, which has been a family-owned East Dallas business for over 70 years. We profiled Forest Hills resident Christa Sanford, who’s the current president of Junior League of Dallas. And there’s also a story on the Lakewood Service League, celebrating 40 years, and Casey Cutler, the outgoing director of Good Local Markets.

Keep an eye out for those stories (and more) on your doorstep and on our website. In the meantime, here are a few fun facts about some of our neighborhood’s leading women.
