UTD Community Appreciation Day

UTD Community Appreciation Day will be Saturday, February 18.

Enjoy a FREE lunch  to cheer on the COMETS Women’s Basketball Game at 1:00 p.m. and the Men’s Basketball game at 3:00 p.m.  (I believe they will be playing the Louisanna College Wildcats)   If you have never watched the COMETS play, I think you’ll enjoy these games- especially if you love basketball – as they are “fabulous” players and very exciting to watch!       So make plans to attend for an afternoon of family fun !!
