Historical Galveston Bus Tour - March 10

40 Shell retirees had a grand time exploring the history and attractions of our neighboring Galveston island. The tour included visits to the Texas Seaport Museum and Tall Ship Elissa, the Ocean Star drilling rig, story of the Great Storm of 1900, or a walking/shopping tour of the historical Strand district in the morning. Lunch was at the Fisherman’s Wharf, followed by a boat trip on the Historical Foundation’s Seagull II for a tour of the harbor to learn about the history of the local waters and a trip to Seawolf Park and the American Undersea Warfare Center for guided tours of the USS Cavalla, a World War II submarine that sank a Japanese aircraft carrier involved in the Pearl Harbor attacks, and the USS Stewart, the only Edsall-class destroyer escort preserved in the United States. Many thanks to Val Brock and Rick Swain for organizing this wonderful day.

Spec's Bordeaux Wine Tasting - March 6

Seminar "Downsizing Made Easy" -  January 24

Sixty Shell Alumni attended the first SAAGH event of 2018 held at the Jungman Neighborhood Library. It was a very informative session on 5 easy steps to a downsizing move. We learned the 5-steps for a successful move are 1) create a plan that fits your lifestyle, 2) communicate with your family and friends, 3) surround yourself with highly qualified professionals, 4) dealing with a house full of possessions, and 5) celebrate your new lifestyle. Attendees had many questions that Liz McNeel, a certified senior housing professional, was glad to answer. If you missed this session and would like to find out how to make a downsizing move easier, Liz will be presenting this topic and other related topics to the public as part of her Houston Senior Living Series. You can contact her for more information and the schedule at lizmcneel@kw.com or (713)826-2731. You will not be solicited for any sales or services by contacting Liz.
