The Honorable Judge Mike Parrott was honored with the Jim Fonteno “Service to Our Community” Award during Harris County Precinct Two’s Annual Black & White Ball on September 9, 2016 at Sylvan Beach Pavilion in La Porte.
Precintct2gether Youth recently held its annual Field Day and Fun In the Sun events. We had an amazing turnout with over 450 kids participating throughout the programs. They enjoyed days of fun filled activities that included a science expo and sports themed clinics.
Every year inner city, south channel, and north channel seniors participate in a week full of Olympics games and contest. We were especially honored to have in attendance three original South Channel seniors that started with the program 40 years ago!
The East Harris County Senior Citizens (EHCSC) program was founded in 1975 as a response to the needs of the citizens of Precinct Two. County funding was not available for certain services, therefore a non-profit organization was formed with funds from donations and fundraisers. In 1983, the program was expanded to encompass citizens residing in nursing homes. In November 2007, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed formally changing the name of the organization to Precinct2gether, Inc., thereby broadening its scope of community services.
An 11 member Board of Directors oversees this 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
