HHGA Supports St. Thomas Episcopal School Flood Rebuilding Effort

As we all know, areas of Houston were devastated by Hurricane Harvey this year. St. Thomas Episcopal School located in Bellaire area was hit especially hard as the entire first floor of their facility and church was flooded.

St. Thomas has always been the star of the Scottish-American community in Houston and a great friend to HHGA. Their Scottish arts programme has done Houston proud on a global level.

The board of the Houston Highland Games Association was pleased to donate $1,000 to the Scottish arts programme to help replace what was lost. We encourage you to make individual donations as you are able to make sure this programme continues to be the force it is.
