Katy Strong; Texas Strong.
We hope that you and your family and friends were untouched by Harvey. If you were, please know that we are here to support you as you repair and rebuild. There are a number of resources available. If you are not sure where to start, go to the Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) at Katy Mills Mall. Many agencies which provide a variety of assistance, from FEMA applications to legal assistance to supply donations, setup information and assistance tables.
As promised, we will begin a "Be The Change" speaker series at this month's meeting. In September, we are welcoming Marie Miglin from the Katy Chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby
. She was already our planned speaker, but it certainly seems timely in this active hurricane season that we would have a speaker on how to affect federal climate change legislation. Please click here

to follow along. If you have a projector and a white screen that we can use for the presentation, please email firstname.lastname@example.orgMEETING, Tuesday, September 19, at 7:15 pm. El Rancho Mexican Restaurant, 17754 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77094.
