HSH Meetings 

Society meetings are usually held quarterly on the first Tuesday in February, May, September, and November at a time and place designated by the President. Due to unique circumstances, meetings are sometimes held at another time. Our meetings last about an hour and a half and include a guest speaker who gives talks and/or presentations on subjects dealing with history, geneaology, archeology, and other subjects of interest to our membership.  We welcome all individuals interested in the history of the area to attend general HSH meetings. Our meetings are open to the public. $5 suggested donation for non-members; RSVP required. Email: info@historicalsocietyofhelotes.org
Board meetings are generally held two weeks prior to the General Meetings of the Society.  

Society members wishing to place discussion or action items on the HSH General Meeting or Board of Directors Meeting agendas should contact the President of the Society a minimum of one week before the subsequent meeting date at info@historicalsocietyofhelotes.org.

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.


Lunch:  Members - $12; Non-Members - $16. A deluxe box lunch from Jason's Deli. Order from five menu items on the Meetings page of our website. http://www.historicalsocietyofhelotes.org/id6.html.
