2013 Texas Legislative Awards Celebration
Mercury Hall - Austin, TX

The Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club

presents the

2013 Texas Legislative Awards Celebration


Celebrating the Chapter's Legislative Accomplishments


Honoring the Legislators who made a positive (!) difference for our Texas environment


During the 83rd Legislative Session, our Chapter relied upon two critical ingredients to make progress:

#1     Dedicated, effective Lone Star Chapter staff and volunteers working with legislators, and

#2     Dedicated, effective Legislators who work with us to protect our air, water, and land (see the impressive list below)

This event gives us an opportunity to highlight the Lone Star Chapter's work during the session, and honor the Texas State Representatives and Senators whose efforts and leadership advanced legislation on our issues.  It also gives our members and supporters an opportunity to make a difference in our state, by helping the Lone Star Chapter continue to work with our lawmakers for a better Texas.

Please join us in Austin on November 7th at Mercury Hall, 615 Cardinal Lane.

We will have drinks and appetizers to enjoy while mingling with legislators and fellow enviros and applauding the awardees.  Even if you cannot attend, show your support with a "ticket" purchase, or better yet, be a Sponsor!  We have an array of opportunities to support your Sierra Club Lone Star Chapter.
