Clear Lake Lunar Rendezvous Festival is dedicated to providing community based support including scholarships for higher education, youth development and educational programs, funding for the arts and historical preservation in the Bay Area Houston/NASA area.
The Lunar Rendezvous Festival Advisory Board is pleased to announce Jana Jacobs Miller has been selected as Chairman for the 2015 Lunar Rendezvous Festival, “The Golden Jubilee”, celebrating 50 years of commitment to the Clear Lake-NASA Area.
Jana and her husband Richard have resided in League City since their marriage in 1987. The Miller family has a rich history with Lunar Rendezvous dating back to 1966 when Richard and his twin sister Jackie won the Lunar Rendezvous Festival Beautiful Baby Contest. Jana and Richard have two children, Cameron and Trey. In 2006, Cameron was selected to reign as the Lunar Rendezvous Festival Queen and in 2009, Trey was selected as Captain of the Royal Court.

The Millers are also members of Lakewood Yacht Club, Bay Harbour United Methodist Church, and Sam Houston State University Alumni Association.
The Lunar Rendezvous Festival began in 1965 as a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization formed to preserve the rich history and many accomplishments in the space sciences made in the Bay Area. The first Festival, which took place over two weekends in June of 1966 and included more than two dozen events, was a salute to the space program’s historic 1965 rendezvous of Gemini VI and Gemini VII in space. Since its inception, Lunar Rendezvous has hosted fun and entertaining festivals enjoyable for the entire family. Each year hundreds of volunteers join together to promote charity, celebrate, and honor our community. Festival proceeds are used to maintain the Bay Area Museum, award college scholarships to local students, and fund other non profit programs in our community.
