UPCOMING GENERAL MEETING
TUESDAY, MAY 4, 2021 • 12:00 pm - 2 pm
Location: Gardens at Old Town, 15060 Antonio Drive, Helotes, TX
Guest Speaker: Award-Winning Author Cynthia Leal Massey
Presentation: "Highlights of Helotes History, 1850-2020"
Our own Cynthia Leal
Massey will give a presentation on Helotes history and updates to her comprehensive history, Helotes, Where the Texas
Hill Country Begins, newly republished in late 2020. Originally published in 2008, this revised, updated history
adds 65 pages of text and photographs, including a section on the San Geronimo Community. Founded by European and Mexican
immigrants in the 1850s, Helotes has a rich history. Helotes, Where the Texas Hill Country Begins offers a thoroughly
researched and fascinating account of a town founded by hardworking pioneers and populated by renegade Indians, elusive
bandits, and impassioned citizens.
The Society's biennial board election will also take place at this
meeting. A slate of nominees will be presented and nominations will be taken from the floor. Only members in good standing
(dues paid) will be allowed to vote.
