Our monthly meetings will change back to fourth Wednesdays and for the immediate future will mostly be at 3015 Richmond Ave. 77098.

However, the building will be torn down next fall so we are looking for a new location for meetings. Currently, we spend less than $80 / meeting. If you know of any meeting location in that neighborhood for similar price, please contact Lan at HNPAT@TexasPrairie.org
