The word civic is a description of something that belongs to a city and its citizens. Civic clubs are, simply put, organizations that belong to their citizens. And Rice Military Civic Club serves in this spirit, as a club that benefits the Rice Military neighborhood. We work hard to promote our residents’ civic and social welfare. But we are a club, not an HOA, which means that joining us is not mandatory. You make a choice to join and support us by paying dues every year. And so the question for you is whether our civic club is worth the $20 annual membership fee to you.
Reasons to Join
- Being a civic club gives us more clout and influence. The City of Houston works more closely with and takes more notice of a large civic club than it does with individuals.
- Our emails and Facebook page make it easier to know what’s happening, from city-wide issues to local social gatherings. Putting out this information helps us be better neighbors and better citizens.
- We secure great speakers on local issues in our quarterly meetings. These issues, often confusing and not easily explained by city websites, are explained by experts who can answer your questions.
- We put on events year-round: quarterly meetings, the garage sale, National Night Out, Halloween, the holiday party, not to mention all the great socials, and more!
- Your dues help us keep these events and activities going, from paying for our website to all the promotional costs.
- Being in a civic club helps you meet people who have the same local concerns and problems as you do. When people work together, we can accomplish a lot more than we can alone. Our new committee on Traffic Safety Initiative is a great example.
- Neighbors who know each other create safer neighborhoods!
- We donate to other nonprofits that benefit our neighborhood, like the WoW Roundabout and replanting trees in Nellie Keyes Park, plus hosting our Holiday Party that benefits DePelchin Children’s Center.
