Going Greek for this year's Holiday Party

The guest speaker at the BAND 2017 Holiday Party at Sokol's Greek Deli and Cafe on Wednesday, Dec. 13 will be Dr. John Jacob, director of the Texas Coastal Watershed Program.

Dr. Jacob is also a professor and extension specialist with a joint appointment with the Texas A&M Sea Grant Program and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service through the Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism Science. His current project, Coastal CHARM (Community Health and Resource Management), focuses on enabling coastal communities in Texas to improve quality of life in cities and towns while preserving and enhancing the natural coastal environment. His topic will be Hurricane Harvey.

Tickets for dinner are $25 per person, and friends and family are welcome. The restaurant is in a shopping center next to Petco at 2410 Bay Area Blvd., near the intersection with Space Center Boulevard.

Ticket prices include a choice of four entrees with salad, pita bread, choice of tea, coffee or water, dessert and a tip for waitstaff. Wine and beer may be purchased and will be charged to individuals who order them. To see the choice of entrees and to purchase tickets, visit
Purchasing tickets in advance helps us plan for seating and food.

BAND customarily hosts a party in December instead of a meeting, and the club collects donations for a charity each year. This year, BAND will honor Bay Area Turning Point and Bay Area Habitat for Humanity. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Attire is holiday festive. See you there!
