The Pasadena Grandmothers, #822 was organized in Pasadena, Texas June 22, 1970. Ruby Sargent is President.
When they visited the Shriner’s Hospital in Galveston, the entourage of Grandmother Club members toured the facility and presented its monitory gift to Megan Sherry, who was the representative for the Shriner’s. In addition, the grandmothers decided to eat lunch at the hospital’s lunchroom.
Right after the first of the year, the Grandmother’s board members gathered for a planning session, deciding what events should be scheduled for 2013. First on the list was the garage sale held in Deer Park. Funds collected from this project were added to others earned to help pay to the annual charities the club supports. All funds are geared for helping children who are seriously ill at various recovery facilities.
Also in January, the grandmothers visited the National United States Armed Forces Museum in Houston. Following that, they travelled to the Terrace in Clear Lake, where they were given a complimentary lunch before boarding a Precinct 2 bus to return home to Pasadena.
In March, it was a trip to Danevang, Texas, to visit the Danish Capital of Texas.
Members toured the church and the cemetery. They visited the Museum to watch a video, then after lunch, went on a scavenger hunt in the Museum, and finally, a tour of the Pioneer House.
April brings the Founder’s Day luncheon, a time to remember and appreciate those
who began as a group of grandmothers back in June 22, 1970. Grandmothers attend a Founder’s Day luncheon at the Monument Inn. They are also reminded how important it is for the club to raise funds to support its work with handicapped children. The grandmothers also enjoyed the luncheon. It is a break from usual tasks and projects, all of which are supported by them.
