TI Sugar Land Campus Update

The move of Stafford Bldg 2 personnel has been completed by mid-July and they are getting adjusted to their new home. The Fort Bend Star newspaper has done a good job of publishing stories over the past year highlighting the events. Here is a link to several articles covering events.

  Upcoming Events:

Note that you need to RSVP to Gary by July 26th.

A Message from the President...

Our drive for TIHAA renewals for 2014 has been a disappointment to me and to all the other board members. Currently 175 of 221 members from 2013 have renewed their memberships. I encourage all members to do 2 things to help out OUR club.

First, help us improve our activities so that our members will be anxious to renew, not have to be persuaded each year. Any and all suggestions for bus trips, more events such as bingo, evening meetings, etc. will really be appreciated.

Second, encourage your TI friends to come to a luncheon buffet, join you on a bus trip, or read this website for additional club information.

The move to the new building at US-59 & University Blvd. is scheduled for the May 30th weekend. Plans are being made for a tour of the new building. As soon as more information is available, TIHAA members will be notified.

The Spring Event (bingo) is being planned for late July and the TI BBQ for late September. Pending confirmation from TI, we will publish details on this website.

Mary Brown has scheduled a bus trip for Saturday June 21st to 4 painted churches in the Schulenburg area with lunch at the Oakridge Smokehouse restaurant for $29 per person including lunch. See the flier for details.

By June 1st there will be a TIHAA Facebook account, TIHAA Texas Instruments Houston Alumni Assoc. Feel free to post any information to this group that may be of interest to not only TIHAA members but all of our TI friends. A link will be added to this web page when the account is active.

Best wishes to all for a great summer,

Regards to all,
