With the Frost Tower constructing the office floors and the big announcement about XTO leaving Fort Worth, it is a wonderful time for a Forum Meeting.  That day is less than two weeks away.  The forum meeting is scheduled for June 30th at 11:45, or so, at Benito's on Magnolia.

This is a reminder that the forum meeting is one week away.  It will be on June 30th at 11:45 at Benito's on Magnolia.  I'm hoping that someone will definitely show up.  I would prefer to not eat lunch by myself.

I have been spending alternating weeks in my Midland and today is my last day here. I will be fulltime in my Fort Worth office starting Monday (except occasional business trips to West Texas and other project areas). I will be there.

Andy, that shot is not too bad, except you didn't catch your co-worker in the photo.  Austin, we did not talk about First Flight Park.

First Flight folks have raised a portion of the money for the artwork, and they are proceeding. The first stage is to pour the concrete support pylon that will hold the sculpture. The foundations for the pylon were previously incorporated into the landscaping. Money has also been raised to cover materials for the aircraft part of the sculpture, aluminum tubing structural steel etc. They are still trying to raise funds for the sculptural portrait of Roland Garros, the pilot.

It can be difficult to raise funds for public artwork in this climate.

I do want to thank everyone for coming.  I always enjoy these lunches.

 

The Downtown Walking Tour may be cancelled in September.  I was wondering, if it is, would anyone be interested in doing a photo shoot/walking tour?

The September Downtown Walking Tour will be cancelled.  Dylan has already said that he would be interested in doing a forum photography shoot instead.  How many others are interested?  We will be doing this on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 9:00 AM.

I know I'm a little late, but I wanted to thank everyone for coming.  It was nice to have District 9 Councilwoman Ann Zadeh eating lunch with us, as well.  It was a fun discussion and I hope everyone can attend on the last Friday in September.  The date for that meeting will be September 29th.
