Welcome to normalcy! Well, closer to it, anyway.

Welcome back to the first “open” HPOU general membership meeting in at least a year – the COVID-19 year of infamy.

The fajitas were once again served in the Breck Porter meeting hall on the first Thursday in April of 2021. Normally that wouldn’t be any big deal but after the Year of the Mask those fajitas never tasted better. They were at least one major sign that things at the Union are getting back to N-O-R-M-A-L!

And, as HPOU President Doug Griffith pointed out, there is yet another sign of normalcy that will unfold this month: Griffith has been present at too many scrambles to count and is looking forward to seeing this number go up more. Despite the cancellation of yet again another Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the annual Calf Scramble will in fact take place in Katy. Read the details.  Basically, this show will go on as usual – minus the big crowd to root for individual scramblers from all over the state of Texas.

We still have a long way to go to get to the “old normal” but these are signs HPOU and the rest of the world are getting closer to the new version.
