See the brochure for complete details and sign up early.

Hilton Garden Inn Sugar Land has just notified us that they have reduced the price of guest rooms, if you want to "take the elevator home" that night. A King Room is now $89.00 and a Double Queen Room is $99.00 - a $10 reduction in the normal cost.

The old TI Stafford Building #2 is now history. Here is a video showing the demolition in progress. It's sad to see our old buildings disappear, but perhaps the replacements will be of value to the community. Stafford Bldg.2 demolition.
