The 2018 TCCWB Board Meeting was held in September 2018 in Austin & was well attended throughout the State. Immediately following, the TCCWB Awards Luncheon was held honoring this years’ statewide recipients. Over 50 attended this luncheon & all honorees attended & received their plaques. The guest speaker was Hunter Beaton, founder & brain child of Day One Bags, an organization to provide high quality duffle bags for children entering the foster care system so they can store their clothing & possessions.
The theme of this year’s luncheon was “Texas World Series of Champions” as the Houston Astros are the World Series Champions. The motif & decor were of baseball & the World Series.
The Houston Astros organization were contacted about the event & donated official Astro duffle bags filled with official memorabilia of the team. These were donated by the Astros to be presented to the male & female foster youth of the year. The foster youth also each received a hand made quilt to take with them to college from the Texas Star Quilters Guild of Van Zandt County.

Many thanks to the TCCWB Awards Committee who worked throughout the spring & summer to make this event possible.
