ELLEN RETURNS TO TEXAS

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

IMG_5867 This week Ellen returns to Texas where she began her 50,000 mile journey over three years ago.  In March of 2007, Ellen, IN HER OWN WORDS premiered at Clear Lake outside of Houston for the TAFCS meeting. This week the TEAFCS meeting hosts Ellen one more time as they meet to REFLECT, RELAX and RENEW.

 

They had prepared a great stage setting for us to perform and we were welcomed in true Texas fashion.  Many of the state AgriLIFE Extension staff  were there, so we were to pleased to share the history of home economics and Ellen Richards with them.IMG_5871

 

                                                     

We spent the evening in a lovely setting, the Chandor Gardens.  These were designed in the 1930’s by an Englishman, Douglas Chandor. He had established himself as one of the great artists of the 20th Century.IMG_5878                              IMG_5887
