Larry Dierker Chapter monthly meeting (Houston, TX)

The Larry Dierker Chapter will hold its next monthly meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 18, 2017. It will be held at the Spaghetti Western Restaurant, 1608 Shepherd Drive in Houston, a few blocks south of I-10, the Katy Freeway. All baseball fans are welcome.

Come early and join us for some great Italian fare — or order when you get here at the meeting. Service is available through our time at the restaurant and, although ordering food is up to you, order something. We aren’t getting this great meeting space for free. If enough of us don’t order, no host restaurant is going to welcome us for long. So, bring your appetite and your wallet. The prices are very reasonable. And the food is bon appetit.

Our guest of honor will be Todd Kalas, Houston Astros television broadcaster, who will talk about the amazing 2017 season capped by the Astros winning the most exciting playoffs and World Series ever. We'll also have discussions about the 2018 Hall of Fame ballot, talk about chapter opportunities like the FanFest preliminary scheduled for January 13th, spring training and trivia by Robert Beck. There may also be a surprise or two that Ira is working on.

We also need to discuss future chapter leadership. With Jim Kreuz moving to Arkansas, we need members to step up to leadership positions such as Event Planning, New Member Welcome, Recruiting Speakers, Updating Name Tags, Agendas, the Trivia Contest, Website Coordination etc. For this chapter to continue to prosper, we need members to step up. What role would you be willing to fulfill in 2018? Please contact Bob Dorrill at bdorrill@aol.com if you're interested in helping out.
