Houston Auto Show
The HEAA had a booth and several electric vehicles on display at the Houston Auto Show from January 21st until the 25th. The show was an overwhelming success with club members networking and discussing electric vehicles with thousands of show attendees. Special recognition goes to the club members that attended the entire five days of the show. This includes HEAA President Kevin Douglas who leads by example. Several photos taken at the show:

Dale Brooks Passes Away
Former HEAA President Mr. Dale Brooks passed away on 11/19/2014 at his home in Marble Falls Texas. Mr. Brooks was one of the founding members of HEAA and served as the president for over 10 years. At a time when there was almost no street legal EV’s in the Houston area, Mr. Brooks owned three. Dale’s enthusiasm and friendship will be missed.
