Celebrating a Halliday

Dallas real estate legend Ebby Halliday turned 100 yesterday, which makes her kind of a twin with White Rock Lake because its 100th anniversary rolls up during June.

Halliday serves as honorary chairwoman of the White Rock Lake Centennial Celebration, a 100-day commemoration of the lake that culminates June 26.

The official kickoff event to centennial celebrations takes place from 11:30 a.m. until 1-ish p.m., March 15, at the Lakewood Country Club. The Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the lake centennial committee, pays special tribute to Halliday during a luncheon in her honor.

Tickets for chamber members cost $35 and admission for non-chamber members runs $45.

Contact Tina Yampanis for more information or to make reservations.

Many thanks to Mark Davis for providing the portrait of Ebby Halliday.
