The end of 2021 is just about here, and what a year it's been! As we take time to slow down and reflect, it may be difficult to see past the hardships we've encountered. But remember, there's always good to be found.

Rounding out my first year as Commissioner, I have an immense sense of pride in our communities and hope for the future. This year, I witnessed the goodness in hearts of all those who responded at the drop of a dime during the Winter Freeze. I witnessed the resilience in businesses and teachers as we maneuvered year two of the pandemic. I witnessed passion from our little league coaches, park naturalists, and other volunteers to spread joy with the hobbies they love so much. Regardless of all that's happened this year, there's still a lot to be grateful for.

If you're fortunate enough and are looking for ways to brighten up someone's holiday, we currently have a Toys for Tots donation drive underway. If you're looking to give your time, call 281-531-1592 for outdoor volunteer opportunities at our nature and education centers. If you're looking for fun activities to enjoy the holiday season, stop by one of our community centers!

There are a lot of wonderful things happening around Precinct 3, and much more in the works. On behalf of my team at Precinct 3, thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones!

-Commissioner Tom S. Ramsey, P.E.
This holiday season has us in the Christmas spirit, and what better way to celebrate than to gather for festivities?

Harris County Precinct 3 Community Centers are hosting a variety of events throughout this month. Stop by any of our locations to participate in holiday crafts, food, movies, and performing arts. (And yes, there will be events to ring in the New Year!)

For all the details about times, dates, locations, please visit here.
At Precinct 3, we love our trees! You can enjoy the beautification and environmental benefits of trees anytime you drive through the precinct, as many are planted along medians, hike and bike trails and parks. Recently, we received 1,500 native shade trees, thanks to the 2021-2022 Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program, which partners with TreeLife Farms to provide native/indigenous species for local geographical areas. By the time 2021 comes to an end, we'll have received 6,000 trees for replanting.

We thank our local volunteers who enjoy helping us with tree planting. This has become a popular activity for community groups and high school students to complete their community service hours. To participate in tree planting volunteer opportunities, contact the Harris County Precinct 3 Parks Department at 281-531-1592. For more information on how our Tree Planting Program works, check out the video below!
