When: 7:00 PM

Where: Fratelli’s Ristorante – 1330 Wirt Rd, Houston, TX 77055

Mark your calendars…

An annual tradition of the NPSOT Houston Chapter is it’s Holiday Dinner Party. This year you can join fellow NPSOT Houston Chapter members and friends at Fratelli’s Ristorante at 1330 Wirt Rd, Houston, TX 77055 on Thursday December 15, 2016. Fratelli’s has been called an Italian outpost with an old-school vibe serving homemade pasta, brick-oven pizza & classic entrees.

The event is a “Dutch Treat” meaning that everyone orders from the menu and covers their own expenses for meals and drinks.

We will also be collecting any donations of canned foods for the local food pantry.

To RSVP, contact Judy Thomas by email at judy.thomas@txgcmn.org.

We hope to see you for our Holiday Dinner!
