Sunday
Coach sendoff: If your kids played sports at Lake Highlands High School under Scott Smith – or if you enjoyed watching him coach Wildcat football for nine years at The Boneyard – you’re invited to a reception to honor his service to Lake Highlands and wish him well at his new gig in Plano. The party will be held on the Picasso’s patio from 4:30 to 6 p.m. The event is casual – come and go as you please – and families are welcome. Appetizers will be compliments of the Wildcat Club. Picasso’s, 7215 Skillman, picassospizza.com
