Cheryl Tucker, Honorary Regent and Constitution Week Chair for The George Washington Chapter of the National Society of the American Revolution (DAR), Founded on June 17, 1895 in Galveston, Texas, has provided posters to Trinity School students commemorating the 233rd year of the signing of the Constitution and to honor the memory of the brave men and women who secured our nation’s independence and the liberties we enjoy today.
At 2:00 p m. on Thursday, September 17, a Trinity student will ring the big church bell on the garth in celebration of this day in history. All are invited to attend. Proudly display your American flag this week.

The beautiful, ornate stained glass doors across from the organ console were the original front doors from the George Seeligson home, formerly at 1220 Avenue H, where the George Washington Chapter, the first DAR chapter in Texas, was founded in June of 1895. A plaque marking this distinction is on the hall side of the doors.

September 21 - October 4, 2020

The Galveston Chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association, in partnership with the Galveston Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), is hosting a Dine Out for Charity event September 21st through October 4th. This event will feature 3 lunch items and 3 dinner items that automatically will include a charitable donation to be distributed to several local community groups. 

The focus of the chosen charities is feeding, supporting, and enriching the health of the children and families of our community. The event is a beautiful opportunity for visitors to come to our Island, have a great culinary adventure, and continue to support the community just as they would have by attending one of our many festivals (cancelled due to Covid-19). 

Charities receiving a charitable donation: The Grand 1894 Opera House, Galveston County Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House, Resource Crisis Center, Family Service Center, & Teen Health Center.

For more information, a list of participating restaurants, and to donate, visit:

St. Vincent’s House Pantry
St. Vincent’s House has issued a special request for assistance with their food pantry. Please toss a few of these items in your grocery cart and drop them by the church office
Please do not leave items out on the steps.

William Temple Foundation aka "Willie T's" 
Ministers to UTMB Students During COVID 19
Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Willie T’s has continued its support of local college students, though the program has changed to protect everyone’s health.
Before the virus outbreak, students gathered in Eaton Hall once a week for a meal cooked and served by volunteers in the building’s kitchen. Most made frequent use of the Willie T’s “study hall,” a quiet where they could read, research and recuperate away from the campus classroom environment.
Lately, though, the kitchen, dining hall and study room have been closed, and students drive by the west entry to Trinity Episcopal School to pick up a pre-cooked, pre-packaged meal every two weeks. Volunteers wear gloves, and their smiles are hidden behind face masks.
“We serve 40 or 50 meals every other week,” said Larissa Botik, Executive Director of the William Temple Foundation (aka Willie T’s). “We purchase them from local restaurants to help support the Galveston economy, and we work hard to keep everything safe for our students and volunteers alike.”
So far, food has come from Queen’s Barbecue, Gino’s Italian Restaurant, America’s Kitchen, Shy Katz and Sunflower Bakery.
