SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a briefing on the Memorial Day Festival in The Woodlands and the Community Covenant Signing Ceremony;
FISCAL IMPACT:
No direct cost is related with the signing of the Community Covenant.
BACKGROUND:
President/General Manager Don Norrell was contacted by Captain Richard Naseer, Commander of the North Houston Recruiting Company with the United States Army to consider a plan to incorporate a Community Covenant Signing into the annual Memorial Day event. Information related to the Community Covenant Program has been provided (Attachment A).
 
The Community Covenant Program is a 2008  initiative of the Secretary of the Army that invited  communities (states, cities, and towns) across America to demonstrate their support for Service Members and their families in this time of war - the longest in our Nation’s history with an all-volunteer force. Over 800 communities around the country have hosted signing ceremonies.  The goal of a Community Covenant signing ceremony is to re-affirm the local community’s support for service members and their families and to showcase partnerships, organizations, programs and initiatives within the community that support them.

Township parks and recreation staff have been working with Captain Naseer, Randall Pais (Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army) as well as other local contacts to develop a Community Covenant document for the Township and establish an outreach plan to engage the many veteran service and military organizations that serve The Woodlands area.

The Joint Community Covenant will encompass all branches of the military and will include the various organizations that serve our local veterans and active duty service members. The Community Covenant Signing Ceremony , including Chairman Gordy Bunch, will take place on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. as part of the annual Memorial Day Festival in The Woodlands at Town Green Park.  The Community Covenant has been prepared (Attachment B).  
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the Chairman to sign the  Community Covenant.
