A Message from the President...

A few months ago here, I wrote: "I for one am looking forward to the cooler days of fall when..." I hereby rescind that statement after a week of 40 degrees and wind. Bring back summer.

An enjoyable evening at the TI/TIHAA BBQ was had by more than 250 retirees and their guests at the Stafford Centre on November 13th. This is the 25th anniversary of the founding of the TI Retiree Club - predecessor to the TIHAA. Special guests were surviving members of the original 40 people who formed the club.

The annual TIHAA Christmas Party will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on US59 south of Gessner on Friday, December 12th. Thanks to Della DuHart who is handling the details for this always fun event. Please sign up with Della as soon as you can.

At the November luncheon meeting, 2015 Club officers were voted on. President Gary Luckett, Vice-President Mary Brown, and Treasurer Jean Houston were reelected for another year. Mary Gomez has graciously agreed to continue as acting Secretary.

Mary Brown has scheduled two bus trips. Sunday, December 7th, there is a bus trip to Navasota to see the play The Christmas Express. The price is $27 per person. On Saturday January 31st there will be a bus tour to see Artwork, Fountains and Statuary around Houston. Details, with times and sign up dates, are in the attached brochures.

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

Best wishes to all for a Merry Christmas, a great holiday season, and an even better 2015.
