The College Station Historic Preservation Committee and the Senior Advisory Committee have developed an outstanding Exploring History Lunch Lecture Series for 2012.  

Each month speakers are invited to share their knowledge of local history during a light lunch.  Each program is taped and broadcasts weekly on CSTV-19.

The luncheon is $5.00 per person and begins at 11:30 AM in the College Station Conference Center located at 1300 George Bush Drive.  There is a new shuttle that you can reserve a spot that will leave from the Southwood Community Center, located at 1520 Rock Prairie Road, at 11:00 AM.
