Welcome, everyone, to Out and About – here to catch you up on what’s happening in the Lake Houston area!
And just like that, kids are back in school! Despite a lot of us being empty nesters, we love our annual first-day-of-school lunch at Chachi’s. Paul and Denise Krieger, Mark Linabury, Lynn Fields, Janet Huberty, Michelle Sorrentino, Millie Garrison, Annette Isbell, Cheri Huber, Sparky Nolan and I caught up on all the trips everyone took this summer, news on kids and grandkids and parents, and everything else under the sun.
Happy birthday, Brenda Chance! She spent her birthday with hubby Ronnie Chance, Robin Chance and Aly Hakam riding down the Pacific Coast Highway. Brenda and Ronnie started off in Austin on their Harleys, riding through the mountains of Santa Fe and Sedona before meeting up with Robin and Aly in California. What a birthday trip!

Glen Redmon was the president and owner of Custom Kitchen Equipment, an Humble City Council member, a member of Humble Rotary International, a two-time Paul Harris Fellow and an Humble High School graduate, Class of 1972. If you graduated from Humble High School in 1997, 1999 or 2000, Glen was the chairman of your Project Graduation. He was a lifelong member of the Humble First Baptist Church. Together with his wife Karla, Glen was the co-creator and coordinator of Special Kids Day for Humble ISD, where children with special needs are paired with 4H and FFA members at the Humble Livestock Show and Rodeo. It is a day of excitement, learning and friendship where everyone gets to be a cowboy. Glen is an honorary FFA member in the Humble, Kingwood, and Atascocita FFA Chapters. In appreciation for his years of service, the Humble Livestock Show and Rodeo has made him a recipient of their dedication award. Glen’s memorial service at Rosewood was attended by so many from the community he served with family and friends, including Kendra Redmon Roller, Jason, Addison, and Everly; Brook Redmon Dickison, Will, Rett, and Quinn; and Blair Redmon Ary, Mike, Skylar, and Sutton. Glen was always surrounded by women, having three sisters who were not only his friends but his neighbors: Karen Cullum, Max, Tiffany and Brien; Janet Mittelstedt, Scott and Joanie; and Deann Otis, David and Nolan. He will be missed by many.
