Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Houston Missouri City Domino Club
From its humble beginning in 2008, the Houston Missouri City Domino Club (HMCDC) has established itself as an icon within the Houston and the Missouri City communities. Its philanthropic activities, coupled with its dedication to maintain the cultural heritage of their members, have set it apart from other social clubs in the area as they continue to meet and play dominoes for over twenty years.
Recognizing the need to address the significant social challenge to maintain their cultural heritage, a group of Jamaicans united to continue a major part of the Jamaican culture in the US. They decided to get together to continue the tradition of playing dominoes as a pastime. The effort started in the 80’s with a small group getting together at each other’s home on a rotation basis. The trend became very popular and expanded into playing virtually every weekend. As time passed and more individuals joined, the most favorite spot became the Dennis’ residence. This residence served as the meeting place for a number of years. In an effort to accommodate their growing membership, they later relocated to 510 Texas Parkway, Missouri City. When it became apparent that the current clubhouse would not be large enough at the rate at which the club is growing a new location was sought.
This new facility was an abandon fire station situated on 1.98 acres with a building approximately 1600 square feet. According to President Leslie Weir, “This is just the beginning.” The members of the HMCDC are looking forward to moving because this location is more open and spacious, with immense capacity for growth.
