The Corpus Christi Chapter attended the ASCE meeting in January to discuss our entering the Canstruction competition. The theme was “Coastal Living”. The competition was in February. We decided to build Rocky the crab who was once posted along the road in Rockport TX but sustained damage from Hurricane Harvey. We did not win, but we had a great time. I would like to thank our Engineer Member Jenna Clayton for chairing this event.
We held our Block Kids Competition at the end of January. It was very successful. We are now all ready for WIC Week. We received our proclamation on January 27, 2018. We will start with an Escape Room Game on Sunday March 4. We will attend the grand opening of Dress for Success who has a permanent home at the Sunrise Mall on March 8, 2018. We will be donating career clothing there as well. We will also be having our annual Hard Hat Walk on Saturday March 10, 2018.
The Tulsa Chapter had donated $500.00 in gift cards from Home Depot to go towards the effort to rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. After many attempts to give them to a worthy cause, we decided to give them to the AGC who has a Hurricane Harvey fund. They are rebuilding some areas in Rockport. We decided to do this during WIC Week. So, Tulsa Chapter be sure to add this to your WIC Week accomplishments. We thank you again for your generous support.
