Please join us Thursday evening, January 9, at 1900 for a very special presentation at the Charles E Hawkins Squadron meeting in Galveston where Dr. Victor J. Viser (above, courtesy TAMUG), Instructional Associate Professor at Texas A&M University at Galveston, will present on economic and tourism as part of Galveston’s current and future development. Dr. Viser is Past Chairman of the Galveston Park Board of Trustees, and has served on numerous boards and committees that are working to shape the future of our island. We will meet at Waterman Restaurant at Pirate’s Cove, 14302 Stewart Road in Galveston (map here). We will be meeting in the Texas Navy Room. Social hour begins at 1800, with the Squadron meeting and program beginning at 1900.

Ordering will be handled as previously, at during the meetings previously at Fisherman’s Wharf. Meeting attendees can order off either the full dinner or, for smaller appetites, Waterman’s lunch menu (see menus here). Checks will be provided individually, and a gratuity built in for separate checks. Suggested pro tip – bring cash in a variety of denominations to settle your check without requiring change or a follow-up signature.

The Charles E. Hawkins Squadron is honored to have the support of the Waterman Restaurant, where the Squadron holds its bi-monthly meetings. With the most spectacular sunset view on the island, the Waterman Restaurant offers everything needed for that special get away dining experience. Expansive outdoor decks overlooking the Galveston Bay along with the finest seafood available makes the Waterman an experience that you don’t want to miss.
