The panel discussion was part of our General Meeting held on Friday, September 15, 2023, at 7 pm CST at Tracy Gee Community Center in Houston’s Westchase District. Panelists included Evie Larmond, Attorney Michelle Fanger, and Norris McDonald. Evie Larmond, retired educator and actress with the Caribbean Community Association of Tampa, Florida, spoke on the importance of giving back.
