Mark Your Calendars for the Plant Thyme Fall Luncheon and Plant Sale October 12th
Keep Pearland Beautiful (KPB) invites all to the 9th Annual ‘Plant Thyme Fall Luncheon’ in conjunction with the Annual Herb and Plant Sale – at the Pearland Community Center, 3523 Liberty Dr., on Friday, October 12. All proceeds will be benefiting the Joe Miller Environmental Scholarship fund and the future Delores Fenwick Nature Center.
Our speaker, Chet Garner, is host to the PBS television show, “The Daytripper”. It’s no secret that Texas is big. Alright, more than big. Texas is HUGE!! According the Chet, exploring Texas ain’t no small vacation, it’s a lifetime endeavor. But what if you only have one day? Well that’s where Chet comes in. From the well-known landmarks to the completely obscure dives and hideaways, Chet explores them all, and all within a day’s reach.
“The Daytripper” was created to inspire folks to get out and explore the Lone Star State. So make your plans to join KPB supporters and your friends on October 12, 2012 at the Plant Thyme Fall Luncheon to hear about Chet’s latest travels.
Keep Pearland Beautiful will be seeking corporate and individual sponsors to help make the luncheon a success. Contact the office of KPB, 281.652.1659, for information on how you can become part of this exciting event.
