Plano, Texas to Get 4th LDS Chapel Since 1980

PLANO, TEXAS -- Membership growth in Plano, Texas has prompted the LDS Church to build for the fourth time in about 20 years. The Plano Stake held a groundbreaking ceremony Saturday, January 26th for the new building, located on Los Rios Boulevard, across from Plano East Senior High School. "We're getting to the point now where we have second-, third-, and fourth-generation families attending church in Plano," said Harold Richmond, Director of Public Affairs for the stake. Plano currently has eight wards, the first of which was formed in 1970, and eventually met in the first LDS building in the city, built in 1980. The stake also has built a new building in nearby Frisco, and an open house for that building is set for March 22nd and 23rd.
