Thanksgiving week marks the time of year when your calendar fills up with holiday happenings. So, get out your pen to mark your calendar because PFLAG Houston’s December 8 meeting will be our Holiday Social.
We invite all of our members, interested parties and satellite small groups to join us. Doors open at 1:45 p.m. At 2 p.m., we will start with small groups, where you can share your stories, receive moral support and be there for each other. Following small groups, at 3 p.m., we will have our social. We’ll share finger foods and snacks. Bring your favorite treat, savory or sweet. PFLAG will bring the sodas and paper goods.
We will hold small group facilitator training on December 14, 10 a.m. to noon. Anyone interested in learning how to facilitate a discussion in a small group setting is welcome to attend. It’s valuable training, no matter what sort of support group you may attend.
We meet in Room 113/114 at The Montrose Center, 401 Branard Street.
Our membership drive, which started in October, is still ongoing. You can find the membership form on our website or at one of our meetings.
Board elections. During our November general meeting, we held board elections. Our 2020 board members are president, Janice Anderson; vice president, Brenda Godsey; secretary, Gwendolyn Lambert; and treasurers, Lydia Middents and Cort Werntz.
