The Grogan's Mill Village Association participates
year round in many different activities that affect
not only our neighborhoods, but all of The Woodlands

assist us for the various projects that can help make
our neighborhoods a better place to live and enjoy our
lovely surroundings even more.

residents of Grogan's Mill that would like to participate once-in-a-while
or on specific projects, but aren't ready to dive
in to full time board membership. Find out what
your Village Association is all about and learn how
you can plug-in to what interests you most. Specifics for
this get-together will be posted on the Web site as
it gets closer. Refreshments will be served.
