Currents - Apr/May 2013
January and February were extremely busy months for this chapter, as we prepared for our earliest banquet ever, and I am proud to announce that all the hard work paid off. The 35th Annual Dinner Banquet, held on March 7, 2013, proved to be another highly successful event for the Corpus Christi Chapter. Selling out an entire week prior to the banquet allowed us the opportunity to fine-tune the facilities, auctions and raffle items without having the added pressure to simultaneously conduct table sales. I want to thank you all for your attendance and support, as they are vital in securing the future of Texas’ coastal resources.
A special thanks to all of our sponsors:
GOLD: Academy Sports & Outdoors, Andrews Distributing, Champion Dealers, Corpus Christi Caller Times, and L & F Distributors.
