Thank you for your new or renewed commitment in making the P artners and the Pavilion one of the most enjoyable non-profit organizations to be involved with in The Woodlands. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and volunteer alongside each of you as we start this amazing season together.

Social Committee: 

Please join the Pavilion Partners for a truly unique experience at B52 Brewery Co. on Saturday, April 2nd from 12-5pm in Conroe. 

Most of us are familiar with many local restaurants and bars in The Woodlands serving B52 beer, but this month you can experience where all the brewery magic takes place. The B52 Brewery will have cold, top-rated craft beer on tap to sample, live music, outdoor games, a few different food trucks and if you thought it really can’t be much better, they will be hosting “Feast of Artisans Farmers Market” on the day we are visiting. 

The social committee will be there a bit early to secure a spot, so look for a Pavilion T-shirt or a friendly face when you arrive. The brewery does have a few picnic tables, but we recommend bringing a lawn chair just to make sure you can carve out your own spot of heaven.
