Our Great City
Meet the Hobbs Family!
In 1990 Carolyn and Art Hobbs made the move from Washington, D.C. to the very rural Southlake Community hoping for a slower pace. They enjoyed the quiet life for a while, moving into one of the few housing developments that Southlake had at that time. As Southlake began to grow, life became and still is, anything but quiet for Carolyn and Art Hobbs!
Their footprint began as chairs for the American Cancer Society Gala, then Carolyn worked on the City review committees, the 1709 corridor overlay zone, First Spin Representative, and founding member of the Southlake Newcomer’s Club, Southlake Garden Club, and Carroll Education Foundation.
Art could be found many long nights as a Planning and Zoning commissioner and co-chairing many fundraising events throughout the years. Their commitment to the local community continues through their dedication to the Pro-Players Foundation, Southlake Women’s Club, and Southlake Chamber of Commerce, hosting and organizing many special events including 10 year chairs of the now famous wiener dog races at Southlake’s Oktoberfest in Southlake Town Square.
Carolyn is a past City Volunteer of the Year and most recently was awarded the prestigious Southlake Chamber Citizen of the year.
Carolyn and Art enjoying traveling and spending time with friends at the many charity events they support.
They love Southlake and are extremely proud to be a small part of this fabulous city that a very rural place has become over the years.
So when you see The Hobbs out in Southlake at Town Square or at one of the many meetings or events they attend, be sure to say Hi to our "Family of the Month" and tell them you read about them on OurGreatCity.com!
