Out and About May 9
- Written by Pam Dickson
Welcome back to Out and About ... the only place that you can find out what’s happening in Kingwood, Atascocita and Humble! It doesn’t get much better than Amedeo’s Jazz night, the fourth Thursday of each month. For the second month in a row, everyone was seated outside; it was a beautiful night. Faces in the crowd: Jill and Tay Bagley; Jim, Tommy and Pascale McIver; Charlie and Kyle Campbell; Nick and Betsy Woutas; Owen and Mary Ruth Jones; Addie Wiseman, Gwendolyn Condeleo and Dave Sawyer; Danny and Geralyn Sullivan and her dad, Jack Kelly. A special treat was the appearance and impromptu performance of Kingwood’s own Pamela York, who previously wowed the jazz crowd with her piano and vocal talents. Pamela recently won the Great American Jazz Piano Competition in Florida, and is one of five finalists participating in the Kennedy Center Mary Lou Williams Competition. Friday, April 27, was a great night for fun. In Humble it was the Humble Police Department annual crawfish boil, with more than 900 hungry people crowding into the Humble Civic Center to enjoy great, spicy crawfish, and benefit HPD’s scholarship fund for North Harris Montgomery Community College District Scholarships. It was a wonderful event for a wonderful cause; thank you, HPD! Meanwhile, in Kingwood a very fortunate group gathered at the home of Lynn and Jack Fields, to enjoy a gourmet feast prepared before their eyes by Chef David Welch from Amedeo’s. Successful bidders of this auction item from the FamilyTime Women of Achievement gala were Walt and Debby Waters and their friends: Sue and Bobby Grawl, Sharlett and Michael Buckner, Rick and Nancy Anderson, Norma Blankenship and Marilyn Brown. Glazers Distributing and David Dickson, Tribune wine columnist, donated the wines, which included a California Chandon, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Australian Cabernet, and a “special reserve” Port. Saturday night at the Woodlands Marriott, friends gathered to say their goodbyes and thanks to John and Barbara Pickelman at the North Harris Montgomery Community College District annual Foundation gala. More than 800 guests in finest spring gowns and tuxes enjoyed a great dinner, music and one of the best auctions/raffles you will find anywhere! Just ask Todd Miller, who won the (raffle) $10,000 diamond bracelet, donated by Thomas Markle Jewelers! One of the bid board highlights was a ladies’ night out with limo, three handsome bachelors and a gourmet dinner in the wine room of Amedeo’s Restaurant. Faces in the crowd: Bob and Janice Roy; Ed and Linda Stegall; Jerry and Pat Eversole; State Sen. Tommy Williams and wife Marsha; Marietta Winters; State Rep. Patricia Harless; Steve and Linda Head; Gay Nord; Mike and Barbara Byers; Tom Broad. This week’s Featured Event: Thursday, May 24, Go Red For Women, Annual American Heart Association Luncheon, Houston Airport Marriott Hotel, 11:30 – 1:30, with registration and reception beginning at 11; a fabulous auction. You will not want to miss this event; Image Consultant Cathy Fitzpatrick will present the style show. Kingwood Medical Center continues to be the presenting sponsor of this event which gets bigger and better every year, and is always on my list of “don’t miss this one.” Table sponsorships are still available, and individual tickets are $50 each. For reservations and information, contact Lindsey Mullholland at 713-610-5021 or A very large crowd gathered at the Kingwood College, Humble ISD Art Festival to create, as well as view, a unique array of student artwork. In addition to the work previously done at school, there were craft stations set up so the kids could create their own originals, right there on the spot to take home – great idea! Faces in the crowd: Janet, Dan, Brianna, Ryan and Dylan Huberty; Tasha, Haley, Hannah and Hudson Luce; Sammie, Jake and Leanne Scott; Stephanie, Sarah and Jack Reilly; Julie and Avery Moore. Humble Rotary served the great food provided by Trigg’s. Proceeds from the meal totaled $1,021 and were given to Dr. Alfred Moore’s HISD Scholarship Fund. What’s on my calendar: ; May 16, monthly luncheon, Kingwood Area Republican Women’s Club, Kingwood Country Club, 11:30; 281-360-7457 for information and reservations; guest speaker, Dr. Guy Sconzo.
