IMPORTANT CHANGES MADE AT DECEMBER OG MEETING
Beginning with the January 5 Seminar, all OG meetings will be held at the Bayou Manor
Auditorium, 4141 So. Braeswood. This" Is In the southwest part of Houston, and lies
between Stella Link and 610 West. Coming from the north or west, exit 610 West at
North Braeswood, turn left under the freeway and continue to Bayou Manor (North Braeswood eventually divides and the road you are on becomes South Braeswood). If you come
from the east on 610 South, exit at Stella -Link, turn right, continue to South Braeswood, turn left (you are on an esplanaded boulevard, so you must go beyond Bayou Manor
make a U turn and come back to It). There Is parking In the front, and In the back
past the covered sheds. Chairman Dauphin proposed the change, citing numerous request
for a change of meeting place due to reluctance on the part of some to come Into Fonde
neighborhood at night, theft from cars while parked at Fonde, need for a larger meeting place, etc. He had conducted a long search for a suitable, free, place, and the
Auditorium seems to be the solution. The members present voted for the change.
Another proposal which was voted In was to mee+ each month, except June and July, Instead of every other month.
