Golden Heart and RITA news!!
News from RWA Headquarters in Houston Texas:
The RWA office remains without power following outages due to Hurricane Ike.
The latest timeline from Centerpoint Energy indicates that the RWA building is located in a section of town that is expected to be without power at least through early next week.
The corporate staff is now able to run essential equipment by using gasoline powered generators from approximately 9 AM - 4 PM Central Time on weekdays. The RWA office telephones and fax machine will be operable during those hours only, until power has been restored. All RWA e-mail addresses are working and staff members are responding to member inquiries.
The Golden Heart and RITA contests will open, as scheduled, on Monday, September 22at 8:00 AM Central Time for online sign-up.
Until power is fully restored, faxed forms will only be accepted during the temporary business hours listed above. We appreciate your patience. Please check the RWA Web site for any changes or updates
