Join us on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 for our last regular meeting of the fiscal year. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. at Sunnyvale Town Hall, 127 North Collins Road in Sunnyvale, Texas.

We’ll have a lovely dinner before the program, which is entitled “Horticultural Therapy.” The program speaker is Susan Morgan of Horticultural Link, LLC.

Her company helps clients:

  • CONNECT with the surrounding world [and the people & plants in it],
  • LEARN new things,
  • EXPRESS their voices & creativity,
  • EXERCISE the muscles of the mind and body, and
  • CREATE positive meaningful moments with what *grows* on outside.

After the program, we’ll install the new officers for 2017-2018.
