Houston Center for the Retarded walk on City Hall – learn more at NetSquared tonight!


If you’ve been keeping up with the political drama of the Houston Center for the Retarded (CRI-USA) and the city of Houston, it’s still going down!

Today over 200 people walked on City Hall wearing t-shirts supporting The Center’s fight to keep its West Dallas campus open and out of the hands of government appointed real estate moguls.

Discussions were going on in City Hall regarding the future of the Center today, to be continued for many more days I’m sure.

If you want to learn more about The Center’s plight and learn how to help – don’t miss tonight’s Houston NetSquared meeting at the Stag’s Head Pub ( 2128 Portsmouth St. ) at 7pm.

At the meeting, The Center Board Member (and parent of Center resident) Wilson Wendell will be talking to us about how they are trying to keep the West Dallas campus open to continue their valuable community outreach.

Questions, comments or just a little curiousity? Definitely attend NetSquared tonight where the group will discuss local social issues over beer and munchies. Good stuff. Visit the Houston NetSquared Meetup page here: http://netsquared.meetup.com/3/ for more info.
