News & Upcoming Activities...

  Upcoming Lunch Meeting:

o September 13 - Our September Lunch/Business Meeting will be held at the China Bear Buffet at 12755 Southwest Freeway. This is a one month only event to give us a break from our current venue. It is a newer restaurant located a few hundred feet inbound toward Houston on the US-59 feeder road. Some of your board members have already checked it out and enjoyed the experience. China Bear Buffet has a large meeting room in the back that we will use for our meeting. So don't forget to join us. You will be glad you did!

  Upcoming Day Trips:

o November 04 - Join us when the TIHAA membership ventures to downtown Houston for Jean Robertson's "Rocking Chair Tour". Mary Brown has arranged for us to enjoy dinner (out of pocket) at the Spaghetti Warehouse prior to the performance. See the brochure for complete details. Don't delay to register as the cutoff date is September 13th.

  Upcoming Events:

o December 10 - Lola McMann has arranged for us to celebrate Christmas on this Sunday afternoon back at the Crowne Plaza Suites on the Southwest Freeway. This is our annual Christmas Party, and it is always a pleasant experience. We were able to make a good deal with Crowne Plaza, where we have held them in previous years. This is a convenient location right on the outbound side of the Southwest Freeway. We have a live DJ and some nice prizes to raffle off to attendees. See the brochure for complete details. The cutoff date for registration is Dec. 4th.
