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...

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy summer so far.

The spring bingo event has been scheduled for August 2nd at the Bayland Community Center on Bissonnet St. in Houston. By the time you receive this the event will probably have already passed. For those of you who attended we would like to have your feedback on your bingo experience. What did you like and especially what you didn't like and any suggestions how next year's event can be improved.

We are still working with TI on scheduling the annual BBQ dinner for retirees. With all of the activities at the new site there has been little progress to date on the BBQ.

The official opening of the new building including a ribbon cutting is scheduled for the week of July 21.

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

Mary Brown has scheduled 2 trips for August. The first is a bus trip to Galveston on Sunday August 10th to see Vickie Lawrence at the Opera House. The second is a drive yourself to the Cast Theatrical Company on Friday August 22nd. See the attached flier for details.

The TIHAA Facebook account, TIHAA Texas Instruments Houston Alumni Assoc., is up and running. 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.

Best wishes to all,
