2018 Community Service Scholarship

The primary purpose of the Indian Springs Village Association is to promote the health, safety, common good and welfare of the residents of the Village and to aid, benefit and promote plans and recommendations relating to the physical, social or cultural development of The Woodlands.  We are a voluntary, elected Board and one of our functions is to recognize and promote good citizenship and community service by awarding tuition scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each.

Taste of the Village -- October 27, 2018


Indian Springs Village Association Announces the 13th Annual


Taste of the Village Community Event

It is the time of year the Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) board is busy planning and organizing the Annual Taste of the Village. The event will be held on October 27th,2018 from noon to 3:00pm at the Indian Springs Shopping Center located at the southwest corner of Kuykendahl Road and Woodlands Parkway.

The Taste of the Village is free to all attendees and is one of the most anticipated community events. Initiated over 13 years ago by ISVA, it was designed to be an outreach effort to bring local residents and businesses together for a fun-filled, family-friendly occasion. The annual event draws more than 4,000 people from across the area and funds the ISVA Community Service Scholarship and the Lloyd Matthews Scholarship for the Montgomery County Women’s Center. “It is a great place to taste local foods, learn about local businesses, hear great music and mingle with your neighbors”, said ISVA President and event chair Michael J. Arendes.

In addition to sampling tasty treats from a variety of food vendors and visiting 40 booths of local businesses and community organizations, families will adore several amusements that will be on-hand. Entertainment includes a live band, inflatables, face painting, balloon artistry, and several walking entertainers for the kids. There will also be a raffle for numerous prizes, such as gift cards, leisure outings and electronics to name a few.

Contact us if you would like to help on 2013 float!


Thank you to everyone who came out to the Fourth of July parade this year.  The theme for the 2012 parade was “Sweet Land of Liberty.”  Under the guidance and inspiration of Indian Springs resident and board member Richard Stromatt, Indian Springs built a float to hold our very own "Of Thee We Sing"  Indian Springs Village Association Youth Chorus.  The children sang patriot songs as the float travelled along the parade route. Indian Springs Village Association President Amy Lecocq praised it as a “fabulous effort.”   For the third year in a row, Indian Springs won the Best Community Entry award and trophy.  Mr. Stromatt noted, “It happened because a whole lot of people worked on it.”  He added, “The children’s presence and enthusiasm made all the difference.  They loved the applause after every song.”  

Holiday Lighting Winners

Indian Springs Village Association 2018 Holiday Lighting Winners

This year’s judges focused on homes and areas that have not had the opportunity to win in prior years and had displayed a significant amount of effort and commitment that was involved in this year’s displays. 

This year’s Best House is 14 Golden Place, in Idlewood.  This home which is owned and decorated by Dan and Lori Parr, has over 60 separate Christmas trees on display in what Dan described as “Santa’s Christmas tree forest”. Dan and Lori said their display required over 50 hours to assemble and several storage units. 

Dan & Lori Parr


This year’s Best Neighborhood was given to the cul-de-sac on Lansend.  This was a new display which involved choregraphing the lights at three houses and the cul-de-sac.  Joe & Kimberly White, who live at 34 Lansend, started developing the lighting plans in August, with his neighbors Brian Ivey and Rob Haberkamp.
