Council Approves Beer And Wine Resolution For Friends Donor Appreciation Event
Friends of West University Place Parks will be serving beer and wine at an event at the recreation center, following approval from council last night.
Council unanimously approved a resolution authorizing a waiver to allow the consumption of beer and wine at a donor event at the rec center on Sept. 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. This is the second event with beer and wine to be held at the rec center. Council approved the consumption and sale of alcohol for a Harris County Mayors and Councils Association meeting on Aug. 19.
“This is not an event where alcohol will be sold,” Parks and Recreation Director Tim O’Connor said.
The event will honor outgoing Friends Chair Joni Hruska Fichter for her 10 years of service. Friends will also honor long standing benefactors and will have the opportunity to introduce new members.
“Having them in a parks facility makes sense,” Councilmember George Boehme said. “I’m certainly for this.”
