UPCOMING EVENTS IN 2020

The uncertainty created by the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to escalate and evolve and, out of concern for the health and safety of our Members (most of us being in the higher risk group due to age), we have postponed all scheduled events until such time as Housotn is considered safe for group gatherings. 

Thanks for your understanding during this unique situation.  If you have questions or concerns,please use the 'Contact Us' link on the left to let us know or post on our Facebook page.  We will notify Membes and update the SAAGH Events scheudl as soon as we can safely resume.


RECENT PAST EVENTS IN 2020

Spring Member Luncheon - March 11th (pictures)

Our annual spring luncheon on March 11th at the beautiful Junior League of Houston was enjoyed by all attendees. Khambrel Marshall, Meteorologist and Member of the KPRC 2 Severe Weather Team and host of Houston Newsmakers, gave an inspiring insight to his life, career, love of the
Houston area and his personal outreach in making Houston a better place for others. Khambrel is a very approachable, kind and entertaining individual that spent time visiting & talking with many of the luncheon attendees. John Bowser, Linda Durant, Jose Solano and Carolyn Yapp were the
organizers. Thank you!

Spring Cooking Class - March 9th (pictures)
Another sold out Central Market cooking event was held on March 9 where participants explored an Italian Trattoria menu. A trattoria is a casual Italian eatery where the menus are written on a chalkboard, the food is served family-style, and service is casual. The group learned how to make
Italian favorites and create trattoria-style meals at home. Thanks to Steve Paul, SAAGH President,
and Carolyn Yapp, SAAGH Director, for organizing.

The Green Book at Ensemble Theatre - February 15th (pictures)

The Ensemble Theatre's adaptaion and performance of "The Green Book" that was inspired by Victor Hugo Green’s historical “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” the setting takes place during a weekend when the Davis’ are celebrating the arrival of Dr. W. E. B. DuBois for a lecture. The appearance of a white visitor, who turns out to be a Jewish Holocaust survivor, sets off a chain of events showing that racism and anti-Semitism cannot be ignored. This play is an investigation of the impact of Civil Rights on contemporary American issues.


Norman Rockwell Exhibit at MFAH - January 28th (pictures)

Norman Rockwell: American Freedom is the first comprehensive exhibition devoted to Norman Rockwell’s iconic depictions of the Four Freedoms outlined by Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want. The presentation explores how Rockwell’s 1943 paintings came to be embraced by millions of Americans. These works of art provided crucial aid to the war effort and took their place among the most indelible images in the history of American art.

 
2017 (Mostly) Cru Classe' Bordeaux Tasting - January 16th

In the elegant Crystal Ballroom at the Rice Hotel, we joined a spectatular tasting arranged by Spec's at which some French chateau owners, directors and wine makers presented approximately 60 mostly Cru Classe' wines, all from the fine 2017 vintage.  This was our eighth year to join this popular event which is an amazing value and special opportunity to enjoy these well-known and highly regarded wines.
