October Branch Meeting

Memorial Drive United Methodist Church
12955 Memorial Drive
Houston, TX 77079
Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher,
“Freshman and Female”
We feel especially privileged to have Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher as our speaker for the October 19th AAUW general program. Ms. Fletcher announced her candidacy for this office at the home of our previous president Sharon Jorgeson, and we have proudly followed her path from Houston citizen to her role as our representative in Congress. This will be your opportunity to meet her and hear about her transition as freshman and female in this Congress.
Memorial Drive United Methodist Church has generously offered to host this event for us, and we are grateful for their hospitality. Please use the parking lot on the east side, and enter the East entrance, turn right at the intersection of hallways, and proceed to the auditorium where you will be welcomed by our members. You are welcome to bring special guests. If you would like to propose a non-political question for our speaker, we will have 3” x 5” cards available. Time will be limited, and we ask that you keep your questions brief, remembering that not all questions can be answered.
We would suggest you arrive on Saturday morning at 9:30 for meeting and greeting friends and new members, with the meeting starting promptly at 10:00. If you are bringing refreshments, please have them there at 9:00. We look forward to this occasion and feel fortunate to have this opportunity of meeting our Congresswoman.
Cynthia Hickok, Program Vice President
