15 Wonderful Butterflies!

Last week, before the Thanksgiving break, we released our 15 butterflies that we watched transform from caterpillars to lovely painted lady butterflies. It has been a real pleasure for staff and the public alike, and a wonderful way to celebrate Houston Citizenship Month!

Houston Citizenship Month at Evelyn Meador!

Last Thursday, as a special treat for Houston Citizenship Month, Evelyn Meador hosted Community Relations Officer Rosa Ramirez, and Officer Peter Cheng from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Office. They spoke about the Citizenship process, conducted a mock interview, and answered many pressing questions about the citizenship process. We thank them for  coming out, and being a part of our ongoing citizenship programming.

Also in honor of Houston Citizenship Month, our information desk has been further beautified by not only real butterflies-to-be, but also a butterfly book display, and crafty paper butterflies. Stop by and make one to keep, or add to the display!
