Founder's Day: Celebrating the Texas Lyceum

Forty years ago, a group of young Texans from the business, professional and academic communities came together at Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas to discuss an idea. The idea: that Texas was at a turning point in its history and had an opportunity—indeed, a responsibility—to become a great state. These leaders concluded there was a need to bring together the various segments of state in a nonpartisan, nonpolitical and non-adversarial setting to solve the problems facing Texas.

The result: The Texas Lyceum.

Forty years later, the “Lyceum concept” endures. Among its alumni, the Lyceum counts those who have served our state and our nation at its highest echelons. In celebration of the founding of The Texas Lyceum and the continued contributions of its Directors and Alumni, we are excited to invite you to participate in our Founder's Day Celebration. The celebration encompasses many events, in an effort to maximize participation, including a Founder's Day Brunch at Bent Tree Country Club and Celebrations Across Texas (happy hour events) throughout our great state. See below for the various events, RSVP information, and other details.
