So far, most of the activity is on the east side of the site near Murphy Road.

  Upcoming Lunch Meeting:

We're moving!

For those not present at the last lunch meeting at America Buffet, we want to remind everyone that we have moved our monthly meetings from the room on the east side of the restaurant to the meeting room on the west side. This room is a little smaller, but it has doors that can close the room off from the rest of the restaurant and it is much quieter for our meeting speakers. We don't have to contend with the staff cleaning dishes next to us. So, we hope you will join us next time.

o May 11 - Our next Lunch/Business Meeting is at the America Buffet, 12815 Southwest Freeway, at 11 AM. We meet the 2nd Wednesday each month for our lunch meetings.

     * All attendees participate in a free drawing for America Buffet meal coupons and other valuable door prizes.


  Upcoming Day Trips:

o April 23 - Back by popular demand is a Day Trip to Coushatta Casino Resort for a day of fun and excitement. Even if you don't win at the Casino, you are sure to win on the bus back and forth, with Mary Brown making sure to keep you active and entertained. See the brochure for complete details. Anyone over 21 can attend and you can invite all your friends!

o June 11 - How about a FREE Sugar Land Skeeters Baseball game? Thanks to Mary Brown and our good friends at the Sugar Land city hall, we have this opportunity to see another exciting game at Constellation Field. This is a fun outing for the whole family. See the brochure for details. Did I mention that it is completely FREE!

o June 18 - Mary Brown has arranged to bring back our day trip that was rained out last year. It is a historical tour of Houston called Broomstick Adventure. This trip was set up by Harris County and comes with an expert guide, Sandra Lord, who has guided us on several tours in the past. This will be a fun and informative experience of Houston that will probably give you a new appreciation of the city. See the brochure for complete details.


  Upcoming Events:

o May 14 - Our Spring Fling Bingo event is scheduled at the Texas Instruments Sugar Land building. Check the brochure for all the details of how to sign up. Sign up quickly because seating is limited.
