We are a volunteer organization that provides activities and resources for the Rice Military neighborhood in Houston, TX. The neighborhood includes over 2,000 homes bordered by Westcott on the west, Shepherd/Durham on the east, Washington on the north. and Buffalo Bayou on the south.
While our activities are free to the public, we ask that you become a member for only $20 a year. Memberships and donations help us make Rice Military one of the best, most active neighborhoods in Houston. We are always looking for volunteers as well. If you are interested in becoming more active in your neighborhood, please contact us.

We would like to thank the following businesses for providing wonderful Happy Hours for us in the past year.
Topics raised and discussed at recent Rice Military Meetings included the Houston 311 number and traffic ordinance.
Jack Valinski, from the Mayors' Citizens Assistance Office, came to answer questions from the audience and to talk about the 311 service. This number is one of those that anyone living within the City must remember. 311 is Houston's non-emergency number to call whenever there is an issue that you wouldn't call the police about, but you need to speak with someone to get the problem solved. Read more about this in the Summer 2013 Newsletter.
The Building Goes On....& On....
It's great living in Rice Military. We are so close to all the amenities of the City of
Houston and there is plenty to walk to. However, sometimes it seems as though
the building and redevelopment of this area never stops. When this development
is happening very close to where we live this can be frustrating but when the
new, attractive property is finished it then becomes easier to appreciate the
work. In this article we take a look at the pros and cons of an ever changing
Rice Military. Find out more in the newsletter.
Super Neighborhood #22 Lost & Found Pets is a resource for lost and found pets in the neighborhood.
If you see or find a lost pet please visit: www.facebook.com/SuperNeighborhood22LostFoundPets Post as much information as you can about the pet, so that hopefully their owners can be found, or a new home can be found for them. Pictures are very useful. If you're not on Facebook, you can email your information to email@example.com
Heard about the Street Captain Idea?
As this neighborhood continues to grow there are new people moving in and out all the time. The Rice Military Civic Club would really like to welcome these new people. One way of doing this is for us to have a
Street Captain for each block.

Why Don't You….Enjoy a day trip to Galveston! This is a great time to drive down and hit the beach for some fun in the sun. And there are less crowds now that school is back in session. Load up your car with picnic fare, an assortment of beverages, beach blankets, chairs, and maybe a big beach umbrella and cruise on down. On the weekends, you can use the HOV lane and really make good time. Did you know Galveston claims to have haunted houses? Halloween idea? www.galveston.com/visitorscenter.com
