MikeLucenteOPEN HOUSE at the new CCGS Headquarters

I am so pleased to announce that we have completed the “move-in” to our new Headquarters. This is a first for the Society and the Coastal Bend Geophysical Society (CBGS) will also be users of this facility.

Previously, our Society had ALL OF OUR STUFF in various “storage sites”. This was inconvenient because most of the “oldie but goodie” stuff was buried in boxes. Sebastian Wiedmann has been exposing many of our old bulletins to the first light of day in decades. Now our members can review old bulletins for long buried research articles or read about past members and their contributions. Rick Paige and I have busily assembled shelves to house our rock and mineral displays and house our extensive Pleistocene bone collection. We will be adding a large conference room table courtesy of Dennis Moore of Baker Hughes. I have contributed a small refrigerator for our kitchen. OH YES. We have a kitchen. We still need a small kitchen table and chairs. We can now have our board meetings or committee meetings at our own facility. Same for the CBGS.


DECEMBER 7 from 5 to 8 PM. Food and soft drinks will be provided, “surf and turf”. The Address is 1231 One Agnes Plaza located 5 minutes from downtown. Drive W on Laredo street (one way) and go past Staples Street. (Guess Lighting on the Right). Make a left on 10th street and a quick left on Agnes Street. (One way). Go E on Agnes and move quickly into right lane to address. Questions? Call me or Dennis Taylor or Rick Page. SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!
