Also in attendance and donating wine were Casey Christman, Erica Johnston, Liz Fagen, Melissa Lanier, Michelle Dykstra, Judy Cox and Juanita Zavala.

Guy Sconzo’s Celebration of Life was held at St. Martha Catholic Church with close friend Father TJ serving as officiant.

Dan Huberty.

The Eagles Nest at Atascocita High School was rocking as the Kingwood Girls volleyball team came to compete! The JV game was won on the last point of the final game of their series by Kingwood. Then it was the varsity teams’ turn to take the court. The Eagles won the first three games in a best of five series making an early night for all of the fans. Seen watching the game was Trey Kramer, the assistant superintendent for the high schools. Wonder which team he was rooting for?

Four of the “oldtimers,” from what used to be Northeast Medical Center Hospital and now is Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital, got together Oct. 6 to lunch and reminisce at Pappas Seafood House in Humble. Former hospital CEO Syble Missildine hosted former CNO Virginia Frost Lowery and husband, Dave, who flew in from Chandler, Arizona, Carol Huber-Prince and Tom Broad. Joining them were Syble’s daughter, Kelley Michelle Michal, who spent a couple of her formative years working at Northeast, and Kelley’s son, Jonathan. “Remember when…” was heard a lot at the table and led to the group thinking about getting the Northeast team together for a reunion sometime in 2022.

Humble ISD’s Martina Lemond Dixon held a meet and greet at Tin Roof BBQ to announce her candidacy for the position of Harris County Judge. This conservative woman has the credentials to back up her candidature. Among her many supporters were Amanda Rossen, Connie and Darryal Chandler, Eileen Booher, Cheryl and Tony Austin, Kathy Neal, Chris Parker, Scott Chandler, Devon Alexander, Shawn Biazar, Tyrone Willis, Burt Levine, Nancy Morrison, Melissa Lanier, Katie and Steve Weirich, Myra Bruns, Keith Lapeze, Chase Stephens, Justin Lurie, Jim and Robin Lennon and Rick and Shannon Walker.

Jerry Monbaron, director of the Humble ISD Education Foundation, hosted a fun event for all of the amazing volunteers in the school district. Shannon Barrientos and Madi Sharp were seen looking super cute. The PTA at the new Centennial school came to impress with matching shirts; “May the Force” be with them! Also on hand was Jonell Thomas, selling memberships to the new Crunch Fitness Gym which is about to open in Atascocita.

The FamilyPromise Chicks and Hogs BBQ and Brew-Off was a great success. I enjoyed the day and was lucky enough to see Juanita Zavala, Daniela Sumbera, Page Cherry, Danny and Michael Sullivan, David Welch, Mark Linabury and Erica and Emma Johnston. I hope that they raised lots of money for this fantastic cause.

What’s this I hear about a 35th anniversary party for the Kingwood National Charity League? It’s to be held at the Lake Houston Brewery on Saturday Nov. 13 at noon. Check out the website for more information. go.rallyup.com/nclkingwood35thanniversaryreunion 

If you have not met the new president of Lone Star College Kingwood — you are in for a treat. She is lovely, engaging and community oriented. I was sad to see Katherine Persson retire, but Dr. Melissa Gonzalez is a breath of fresh air. She is already attending community events, chamber luncheons, etc. I am looking forward to getting better acquainted with her.

Upcoming fun!
