Though she is relatively new to the organization, joining as a representative of Kings Hwy Conservation District in 2012, she said she knows non-profits. That is what she does. Her energy & drive will be an asset to the League. She also serves as the current President of the Kings Hwy Neighborhood.

The 1929 Humble Station on the corner of Zang and Beckley and across from the Oswald Boarding House is for sale again.  The station was on our 2012 Architecture at Risk List.  

The asking price is $349,000.  Historic tax credits, the upcoming Gateway zoning matter and upcoming streetcar project are all positives for this unique piece of property.  Just across the street is the Lake Cliff Historic District and including the station in the district would not be difficult opeing the way for historic tax credits.

The station is one of only 2 left in the state of Texas.  It's twin in San Antonio was turned into a restaurant called Bliss.

On December 27th, Ray Porter succombed to a short difficult battle with a rare form of liver cancer.  Ray was a competitive cyclist and member of the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company competing in scores of professional marathon cycling events; some for hundreds of miles across state lines.  Ray was a great friend of the League.   

Ray is survived by his wife Gina Porter who served as both our Treasurer and Secretary and for years as the Neighborhood Representaive frrom Beckley Club Estates.  Our love and our prayers go out to Gina during this difficult time.

A memorial for Ray will be held at the Kessler Theater on January 19th at 3:00 PM.  Gina has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Big Pig Cancer Foundation.  If you'd like to give personally towards Ray's medical expenses there are two ways.  You can purchase a Wristband for Ray or go to GoFundMe and contribute.  Once all of Rays expenses have been satisfied, extra donations will be given to the Big Pig Cancer Foudation.  Thank you.
