Just off the wire from the 1940's!
Tonight - at the Museum. Two hours of history explored and explained about this historic year!
Here is a link to the event!
Greetings Chapter 12 Members and Friends!
We have a slight change for tomorrow's presentation.
Same location, same time, different speaker and topic – New Basic Medical Reform Details – very important since it is almost here! Please read below and we'll see you at the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), 12650 N. Featherwood Dr,. Suite 230, Houston, 77034 at 10AM in the morning!
Please note that IH-45 Southbound will be closed starting tonight through the weekend from basically BW8 to NASA 1. You should expect traffic as the Fuqua exist is just north of BW8. Might look at alternatives using BW8, Highway 3 and Fuqua/Allen Genoa. Google or Houston Transtar are good references.
Don’t forget about the Chapter 12 Meetup – example attached below
