Memorial services have been set for a beloved Houston philanthropist.

A memorial service will be held Tuesday August, 6 in Galveston for George P. Mitchell.  Mitchell famously developed The Woodlands and pioneered the development of shale gas exctraction, among many community contributions to Houston and Texas.

The service will begin at 5:30pm at Galveston's Trinity Episcopal Church.  Following the service a celebration of his life will be held at Saengerfest Park.

The Mitchell family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in George P. Mitchell’s memory to the Galveston Sustainable Communities Alliance, Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council, the Galveston Academic Excellence Booster Club, or a preferred not-for-profit organization that supports strong communities, environmental sustainability, or educational initiatives.
