Please Take A Moment . . .

For all our friends, family, and fellow Texans caught up in the disaster of Hurricane Harvey, please take a moment to send thoughts and prayers to the communities who have lost so much. Look for opportunities to help by searching 'Disaster Relief Texas' on Google or your favorite internet search engine. We will work together for however long it takes to recover - but recover we will. We are Texans and we are Strong! [please scroll down to see more info on the status of the Fall 2017 Retreat]

While the Austin area had an enormous amount of rain, and more than enough high winds from the hurricane, we are in no way affected as our communities to the south. The Austin-Round Rock area where the Retreat is being held is clear - the highways remain open and the Austin Bergstrom International Airport is also open.
