Update on the Land Grants Meeting in McAllen on Saturday August 31 12:00 noon. We are past the halfway mark on our seating capacity of 240 people, and running out of seats. Make sure your name is on the list, please do not bring children.

State Senators Ryan Gillian and Juan Hinojosa, authors of House Bill 724, or their representatives have been invited as guest speakers, but no confirmation yet. Governor Rick Perry has called for a third session that is keeping the Senators very busy that may have affected their attendance at the meeting. We are still working on the Speaker list, and will have more information in the middle of the month.
