We have been busy this summer, and looking down the road it does not look as though we will be slowing down anytime soon.

Texas811 membership reached another milestone the morning after 811 Day - 1,600 members! We are humbled by the faith our members put in Texas811.  From our first member over thirty years ago to number 1,600, Texas811 remains true to our founding charter as a non-profit public safety entity - to protect and serve our members and the public.

811 Day 2016 was a big one! We stopped by Great Day Houston to explain to viewers the importance of using the 811 system, then we headed over to the block party in downtown Houston. While the Swag'n was passing out snow cones in Houston, we made an appearance with free shirts at the San Antonio Missions game. Our biggest event had to be the Texas Rangers game with Atmos Energy, where we passed out over 2,000 free shirts to spectators. To wrap up the night we lit up the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas with the Texas811 logo to welcome passersby to the DFW Metroplex.

The end of August means it's back to school time! A school supply drive was held at the Texas811 Contact Center and the supplies were passed out to our employees who could use the extra help. The generosity of our employees never ceases to amaze me! I was gratified by how the Texas811 family came together to support one another.

I want to congratulate our two contest winners: Greg Pennington and Glen Cooper! They each won a custom cedar beer tub by participating in our Facebook giveaway. Keep checking our social media pages for our next giveaway!

September is already looking to be a busy month, but thankfully, with cooler weather!

As always - thank you for your continued support and dedication to damage prevention.

President, Texas811
