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
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
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.
