DeSoto is a diverse community, rich in culture, steeped in a vibrant history and a deep rooted heart for service.  

In a time when it seems the world is ever shifting and dividing, we have been reminded of the things that make DeSoto a great place to live and raise a family, work, play, and serve. We want to do our part to cultivate a community fit not just for you, but for your children and their children, and we know that such a goal can only be accomplished if we come together, and work together.

A Heart to Serve is an event that is created to educate, empower and unite the citizens of our community. It is a celebration of who we are and our heritage.  It is a commitment to investing who we can become when we work together in unity, focused on the forward trajectory of our community.

"My vision is that DeSoto, more than any other city, will become that special place where citizens are inspired to use their God-given talents to make a difference wherever they are and whatever position they're in,” said Mayor Curtistene S. McCowan.  “My prayer is that our upcoming Heart to Serve event will inspire and energize more of our citizens -- of all ages -- to get involved and, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, 'be the change that you wish to see in the world.’  Through this kind of transformational engagement, our All America City will soar to new heights!"

Join Mayor McCowan as she celebrates her birthday at the first annual community event for Heart To Serve on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 11 am to 2 pm in the DeSoto Civic Center.  Bring your family for an afternoon of interactive learning and lively conversation among neighbors, friends and community leaders.  The event features hands-on activities and breakout sessions designed to help you learn more about your community  and the people in it and how you can commit to being a part of creating solutions for generations to come.   

Heart to Serve is a free event and DeSoto families are encouraged to attend.  Refreshments will be provided and seating is limited.  Please  register your attendance by following the link here or calling 972.230.9648.
