HOUSTON (CBS Houston) It’s no surprise to many that the summer days in Houston are hot, humid but can essentially bring about great times outdoors.
As summer draws to a close, one group is calling upon friends—old, new—supporters, and community members to join them for an “end of summer celebration”.
The Wesley Community Center which builds and strengthens community connections while raising critically important funds for community endeavors that benefit Houston and surrounding areas is planning a benefit.
“Let’s take this opportunity to reflect upon and celebrate the growth and transformations afoot at Wesley Community Center with a fun, exciting and REFRESHING after-work get-together,” said organizers, close to the event.
“Saint Arnold’s Brewing Company will offer six of their best brews on tap for your enjoyment. Quench your thirst with an ice cold brew or sample a variety. Be certain to partake in Saint Arnold’s famous sweet, flavorful old-fashioned famous Root Beer! Lady Bird Food Truck will be onsite serving an array of sizzling hot summer bites so you can quell your hunger, sit back and enjoy the cool vibes from the music of the Junior Jazz Quartet. Be certain to take a Tour of the Brewery and check out the ol’ tank farm. Don’t stay gone too long or you will miss your name being called as the winner of one of those fabulous Sports-Themed Raffle Prizes!
Based on the Settlement House model, Wesley House was established in 1904 in Houston’s Northside Village neighborhood by the women of First United Methodist Church with the goal of improving the quality of life and strengthening outcomes for the community’s mothers and their young children. A full 109 years later, Wesley Community Center continues to strengthen the lives of children, youth, women and families in Houston’s Northside and in various low-income neighborhoods throughout the metropolitan area. Wesley Community Center engages individuals, children and families with a comprehensive array of programs and services along the circle of life—from early childhood education, youth development programming, senior and social services, community outreach to economic development services—and is dedicated to realizing human growth, developing positive outcomes, and working to fulfill its mission to help people help themselves and each other.”
