The Houston chapter of ABOTA held their annual gala/black-tie dinner on Saturday, October 26th. Within a matter of 10 days, they changed the theme from black tie to Astros Watch Party and had everyone wear their favorite Astros clothes.  About 100 people watched the 4th game of the World Series on two huge screens as they dined.

ABOTA President, Mike Maguire, came in from Costa Mesa, CA for the event.  He even wore the Astros jersey they gave him!  ABOTA Foundation President, John Rodman came from Colorado to tell the group about the Foundation.

The chapter honored the female members who had practiced law for 40+ years:

Linda Addison
Elaine Block
Carol Butner
Linda Broocks
Suzan Cardwell
Jan Fox
Janet Hansen
Gail Johns
Diana Marshall
Alice Oliver-Parrott

New members were introduced and inducted and sworn in by chapter president, Hon. Erin Lunceford.
They are:

Kyle Farrar
Brian Jensen
Joel Z. Montgomery
Jeremy Newell

Thankfully, the Astros won that night, as the members finished the game by enjoying popcorn and champagne.
