Rain, Rain, Go Away!
The good news is that TARA leaders report that our activists on the Gulf Coast are OK so far.
Chapter Presidents in Beaumont, Corpus Christi, and Houston have been asked if they need aid and, so far, they reply that they are OK.

Houston Chapter President Cheryl Anderson sent her thanks “…to all my brothers and sisters who have reached out to me asking how they can help.” She has already reached out to nearly all the activists there. Anderson says that Houston people are more used to handling situations like this than the rest of us might think.
As a retired teacher, Anderson was saddened that so many children were missing the first days of school. She closes, “We appreciate everyone’s prayers and thoughts. As soon as I can find out how we can be helped I will not hesitate to let you know.”
Labor Day Cometh
All the chapters are working to participate in Labor Day activities. Find the one nearest you to gear yourself in.
