Membership Party

Please join us this summer for our annual Membership Party! It’s a great opportunity to join colleagues and friends, old and new:

  • Celebrate the benefits of AGPS membership.
  • Welcome new members and scholarship recipients.
  • Encourage those whose membership has lapsed to re-up.
  • Invite others who are considering joining or just want to learn more about AGPS to consider membership with us.

Lisa Means has graciously offered her home, which is so welcoming and comfortable. We know that even the most introverted amongst us will feel comfortable venturing in, but if you would appreciate a buddy to make it less anxiety-producing, contact Deborah Sharp and she or someone from her team can make arrangements. Deborah Sharp debosharp@yahoo.com

RSVPs are greatly appreciated, as we do provide beverages and food for our guests!
Date: Saturday, August 27
Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m
Charge: no charge
Location: 4207 Sendero Dr., Austin TX 78735
RSVP: Deborah Sharp debosharp@yahoo.com
