A Message from the President...

I, for one, am looking forward to the cooler days of Fall when we can open the windows and enjoy the breezes. I remember well how my grandparents were some of the original snowbirds. They spent the summers in northern Illinois and 6 months in Florida. I wished that someday I would be able to do it, too. Oh well, Sugar Land is better than shoveling snow.

The annual TI BBQ dinner for retirees has been scheduled for Thursday, November 13th. Watch your mail in late October for your personal invitation.

The annual TIHAA Christmas Party will again be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on US59 south of Gessner and adjacent to the Olive Garden. Thanks to Della DuHart who is handling the details for this always fun event. A flier is on the website with all the details.
