Here at Lone Star Veterans Association we're celebrating 10 years in 2019 of our mission to build One Veteran Community. We can't thank everyone that has been along this wild ride so far, and has signed up for the next 10 years. There have been delirious highs and depressing lows along the way, but throughout it all we've had YOU our community of veterans driving our mission to where we are today.... over 10,000 members!
We will have a great day to celebrate on March 1st together over lunch where we'll be recognizing our amazing volunteers and that night for a blow out celebration party.
It's been a real honor to serve with this organization since 2012 and in a full time capacity the past few years. It's been easy to run all these activities (we averaged 17 events per month in 2018!), but these simple activities are just a platform for others to use. I've seen you lift yourself up and lift up other veterans. So many great stories of veterans helping veterans and as an organization through the simple act of bringing great people together with other great people. This is the best community to be a part of in Houston, thank you for letting me play a small role as you all lift each other up. It's an amazing thing to see veterans busy in their careers and families take the time to build this community together.
We have a really great lunch planned with Amegy Bank to showcase our thanks to the people that make this community of veterans so successful.... veterans. Our biggest volunteers and supporters from the past decade will be with us so we can embarass them by bringing them on stage.
We'll also be hearing an amazing talk from Donna Fujimoto Cole, the CEO of Cole Chemicals. You don't want to miss out on any of this. If you RSVP this week your seat is FREE. Pricing for seats starts next week, so RSVP now. You've been warned.
It wouldn't be a LSVA celebration if we didn't have a happy hour with our 400 best friends. Don't miss out as we've rented out the St. Arnold's new event space. This place is beautiful and you get to enjoy the wooden picnic benches built by a veteran business, Tree Climber Creations. April and Charles do so much more than just tables, so check their website.
For our crayon eaters out there we will have a cake cutting ceremony. For the non-Marines we will unceremoniously eat cake with our beers. Make sure to tell us if your coming by RSVP'ing here
