TEXAS FENCE ASSOCIATION
Spring Meeting
The Texas Fence Association held its Spring Meeting March 8-9,
2018 at La Toretta Lake Resort in Conroe, Texas. On Friday night

there was a fun St. Patty's Day-themed dinner, and everyone was
decked out in their best green garb while the live band played.
Thanks to Southwest Automated Security's sponsorship, the chapter
was able to offer CAGOI & CAGSD certification tests on Saturday
morning, while other members enjoyed a round of golf. With help
from Master Halco, the group took over La Torretta's Sports Bar
Saturday night to party at a crawfish boil. Lots of great memories
were made.
Donations to Hurricane Harvey Victims
As many know, TFA members were hit hard by Hurricane
Harvey. The chapter wanted to help its members that were hit
the hardest, and therefore decided that its chapter project this
year would be to donate funds to help as many TFA members as
possible who sustained major financial loss by this natural disaster.
As unfortunate as it is, the association cannot help everyone, so it
created an application system to allow families to share their stories
and amount of damages. After reviewing all applications at its last
board meeting, the chapter selected four families to receive funds.
The Texas Fence Association hopes that all have recovered or are
well on their way to recovery. ■
