CURRENTS – Feb/March 2020

Happy New Year from South Texas. I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is ready for 2020.

Our banquet committee chairpersons have been very busy organizing our team and we thank all of our board members and volunteers for their services.

Saltwater Grill will be our food caterer with multiple buffet stations and House of Rock, our beverage caterer, will be serving adult beverages all night long!
