October Business Meeting

We aren't a serious bunch, but we do try to have a business meeting (aka not at a happy hour) once in a while!

Tomorrow, Monday 10/20, we will be holding our 1st business meeting of the year at the Bunker Hill H-E-B's community room. The meeting will run from 6pm-8pm. No outside food or drink is allowed but you can purchase food and drink from the store and bring it into the room. H-E-B has an excellent prepared food counter (hello, Orange Plate special!).

We will be discussing a variety of subjects including fundraisers and upcoming events. Please bring your ideas! If you have never attended a meeting, this is a great opportunity to meet us.

The address for H-E-B is 9710 Katy Freeway, Houston 77055.  Hope to see you there!
