TI Sugar Land Campus Update

Our April 12th update shows the building site is almost complete on the exterior.

As work on the inside progresses, we might expect our TI friends to be able to move into their new home in May or June. Check back here often and we will show you some more photos as soon as we are able to go inside.



If you haven't already renewed your 2014 membership, then you are LATE. Please mail your check for $10 (covers member and spouse) made out to TIHAA as soon as possible to our new 2014 Treasurer:

Jean Houston

  Upcoming Day Trips:

o April 26th - Shop until you drop at the San Marcos Outlet Mall in San Marcos, TX. Mary has arranged for us to ride the Harris County bus for a day of bargain hunting at 140 outlet stores! See the flyer for complete details.

o May 3rd - Are you ready to win some money? Well, are you ready to have some fun on the bus there and back? Mary Brown has organized another of her world famous Coushatta Casino Day Trips. You need to be 21 to get on the bus, but that shouldn't be a problem for most of us. Check out all the details on the flyer.

A Message from the President...

Can summer be far away? As I write this in Scottsdale, Arizona, the sky is a clear bright blue and the temperature is 85 degrees.

On behalf of myself and all the TIHAA members, I want to wish past president Lucy Salas a quick recovery from her recent back surgery.

We are nearing the end of our drive to get everyone to renew their TIHAA membership for 2014. Please remind your friends that if they have not done so, to send their $10 to treasurer Jean Houston as soon as they can. Emails and phone calls will (have) be going out to all those who have not renewed yet.

For those who do not renew, this will be the last issue of of the Vigor/eVigor that you will receive. You can still access our website www.tihaa.org to obtain information about upcoming TIHAA events.

Mary Brown does a great job scheduling bus trips. Please take advantage of all the hard work she puts in arranging these trips. The next trip is to the San Marcos outlet malls on April 26. My wife and I have been there several times. Many, many stores with everything you could want.! Please see the flyer in this newsletter for details.

It is discouraging to me that it is hard to get more than 15 people to sign up for the bus trips. Remember to "Invite a Friend" to join you. Your friends do not have to be a TIHAA member, just over 55 years old.

Regards to all,
