Club Luncheon and Business Program
Immediate Past President Rick Tarbell introduced our guest speaker, Connie Gonzalez. Connie is the Director of Strategy and Community Relations and oversees the Brooks Team. She was the weekend anchor in Fayetteville Arkansas and San Antonio.
She said that she is discovering the south side of San Antonio.  Brooks began as center for tech and research. It is only 10 minutes from downtown and is a mixed use community. Houses two international companies.  Treasurer Fred wondered if it would be possible for our club to hold an off site meeting there.  Connie welcomed our club to visit and any member who wishes to visit could enjoy a tour. 
Just a FEW interesting facts about Brooks:
  • One of the fastest growing neighborhoods in San Antonio
  • Becoming a hub for small business entrepreneurs
  • One of San Antonio's fastest growing mixed use communities
  • New drive in theatre set to open at Brooks September 2020

  • Plans for extending the San Antonio River Reach
