The Texas German Trails Project (TGTP) will get underway with its first meeting at 10:30 a.m. on January 26th. We will meet at the Blinn College Student Union Building in Brenham. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow time for registration, refreshments, etc. We will try to finish around 12:30.
While the overall goal of the TGTP is to identify, locate, and “map” the more significant German settlements in Texas, the goal of this initial meeting will be to explore and discuss the parameters of the project and how it might be financed. I will present some possibilities, but everything is open for discussion at this point. If you have a particular possibility that you would like to present, you must limit it to a maximum of 10 miunutes and let me know in advance.
Please pass the word on to others who might be interested. The only requirement is e-mail capability, and it would, of course, be helpful to attend at least some of the meetings. Subsequent meetings will be scattered around the state.
If you are planning to attend the meeting, please let me hear from you by Wednesday, January 23rd. All indications are pointing to a large turnout.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you.
