RCMP Troop 11 40 year Reunion

In February we had a great time hosting the 40 year reunion for RCMP Troop 11 in Houston, TX. Kathy was able to meet up again with some of her RCMP Troop members from all over Canada. We stayed at hotel near Discovery Green in downtime Houston so we able to easily enjoy city attractions.

On Wednesday we took the Metrorail train down to the Museum District and enjoyed a special Exhibit of Norman Rockwell’s art work. After lunch at the MFAH we walked through the Cullen Sculpture Garden before taking the train back to the downtown area and the hotel.
