Important message:
After much discussion, the SHAC executive board determined that the most efficient course of action for the 2020/2021 year is to hold current members, until a vote for approval of the bylaws is completed at the second meeting of the year. It is our belief  that the current membership, who has labored through this process with us, deserves to see it through. Our intention is to have the first reading at the September meeting, with the second reading and vote at the October meeting. Once the bylaws have been approved, membership will be opened and new members accepted according to the new bylaws.


Meetings start at 8:30 a.m. and will be held at the 121 Church Flex Room at 2701 Ira E. Woods Ave next to the Administration Building at 3051 Ira E. Woods Ave. Grapevine TX 76051)
