Jim has spoken to our Chapter before and is an interesting speaker who is gifted with the ability to paint pictures with his words. he is returning by popular request of our members so you don't want to miss hearing Jim on June 21st and remember this is one of our too semi-annual pot luck luncheons so you not only have a great program but shared fellowship over really good food.


We have all been reading about and hearing on the radio and TV news about the possibility of reducing the effectiveness of the Federal Trade Commission. We are fortunate to have the Regional Director, Dama Brown, as our July speaker. Other upcoming programs include a program on the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Dr. Alan Saxe, UTA professor is also on our list. Please stay 'tuned' for more details and additional programs! Our Chapter will be celebrating its 30th Birthday in October - our board has set up committees, is refining the duties of each committee, and seeking pricing on the meal, its setup, decorations, the big, big cake, and a keepsake booklet. There will be more details as plans are completed. One committee will contact past presidents and another will invite community leaders. This is going to be an event you don't want to miss!. Remember to receive information making you an informed voter, to learn about the advantages of our golden years, and many other interesting topics be sure to attend our chapter meetings.
