We have arranged tours after the meeting for those that might be interested– the Texas Heroes Museum and/or the Texas Quilt Museum have said that would stay open for us on October 19 at 4:00-5:00 p.m. The Best Western is probably about a mile and a half from the museums. We will probably carpool, we can drop the men and women off simultaneously. They are within walking distance but it’s three blocks between the sites. More details will be made available during our meeting earlier in the day. All the tours will start at 4:00 PM.
Friday and Saturday night dinners– we usually meet as a group for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. All interested parties are welcome to join us. We currently do not have the details finalized for the dinners. The details will be posted as soon as they are available. We are a sizable group and we usually have to eat relatively early in the evening. Please plan appropriately…
