Happy New Year from your Glade Crossing Neighborhood Association!  Wow, 2021 flew by!!!  We appreciate all of our neighbors and members who keep this subdivision a great place to live!  In 2021, we were able to:
-  Kick off the year with a virtual Zoom meeting, with civic leaders included!
-  Host social events for you: Easter Celebration, July 4th, Movie Night in the Park, Breakfast with Santa, and some participated in National Night Out through GPD
-  Collect hundreds of items to donate to GRACE
-  Installed beautiful American flags at common entrance beds
-  Updated landscaping in common entrance beds after many plants were lost in the big freeze
-  Welcomed over 30 new home buyers in the neighborhood
-  Partnered with Grapevine city leadership to get a Pedestrian traffic light crossing added on Hall Johnson between Hazy Meadow and Preston Place (in-progress, anticipated completion date by Summer 2022)
We also maintain a web site for you (  The more who use it, the better the benefits it can provide to all!  You can:
-  Register your pet in case they ever get lost
-  Directly and securely message other members and post on message boards
-  Advertise your business on the business ads page
-  Find a babysitter
-  Find contact information for any registered members in the neighborhood
-  Leave reviews for contractors or other service providers
-  Sell things
-  Meet your board members
-  Pay your dues
We are busy planning another great year in 2022!  We will have an annual kick off meeting some time between February-March, and will communicate out those details as soon as we have them finalized.  We are hopeful to have an in-person event also live-streamed for anyone that wants to watch virtually.
We are a VOLUNTEER neighborhood association, not an HOA.  We have board members who are volunteers but it is up to all of us to work together to keep our neighborhood as a great place to live.  We love to hear feedback and ideas from residents.  We are also always looking for volunteers in any capacity.  Please feel free to reach out to us at the contacts listed on our web site at any time.
We look forward to another great year ahead in Glade Crossing!
