A Heartfelt Thank You From
Harriet Latimer, Luncheon Chair
along with
Honorable Annise Parker and Andrea White, Honorary Co-chairs


We send our appreciation to our incredible honorees Nita Vandiver Jackson, the recipient of the first William J. Hill award and the Descendants of Sam Houston, Nancy Burch, Anne Kennett, Penny Remick and Charlotte Taylor. We also send a special thanks to our knowledgeable speaker, James L. Haley for sharing the story of the connection between Sam Houston and Charlotte Baldwin Allen.

We are appreciative of the support from our city and county officials for the special recognition of Nita Jackson Vandiver. And a special thank you to Mayor Sylvester Turner for his letter of support that was delivered by Andy Icken, Chief Development Officer.

 We are thrilled with the luncheon’s success. It was the largest amount raised for our Annual Luncheon since 2011 and also gave us a chance to share our mission and to make many new friends.

 Most of all, we are thankful for your generous support for the luncheon, your memberships, and your donations through our annual fund.
