Fall Banquet

Texas State FSA hosted its first ever Fall Banquet at the LBJ Ballroom on Nov. 18. New and old FSA members came together to celebrate FSA. We had a buffet style dinner that consisted of dishes and drinks made by many FSA members and to top it off a roasted pig also known as Lechon in Tagalog. The night continued with a special guest performance by Brent Ramirez and a karaoke session. We want to thank all of those who attended and those who made it possible for us to have this great event.
