Thank you to all who came out this past Tuesday for the Mayor Nick Long's official presentation of the League City's Education and Sharing Day proclamation!

Education and Sharing Day focuses on the importance of fostering meaningful, moral education and a spirit of goodness and kindness in our society. Since 1978, the US Congress proclaims Education Day annually and dedicates it in honor of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory. The State of Texas and numerous other states and cities participate, and it is wonderful to have our very own League City be part of it as well.
