Welcome back to Out and About ... the only place that you can find out what’s happening in Kingwood, Atascocita and Humble! I attended some wonderful events for several great causes the first few days of this month, beginning with the 20th annual Texas Crime Victim Clearinghouse Conference Awards Banquet in Austin. The folks honored at this event are our real Texas heroes, those who step up and stand up for victims of crime – law enforcement, legislators, victims’ advocates and victims’ services professionals. First Lady Anita Perry was the keynote speaker, “I pray for the victims of crime in our state”, she said with great emotion. I was “Humble Proud” as our own Chris Green with Humble Police Department received the Practitioner/Law Enforcement Award for her innovative programs for victims of crime and disasters in our community. Congressman Ted Poe arrived from Washington to be recognized for his work on behalf of crime victims, both as judge and legislator, receiving the Senator Ralph Yarborough Allied Professional Award Later that evening, Kingwood College’s Dr. Linda Stegall assumed her duties as captain of the cruise ship, “Star of the Woods.” It was a beautiful evening for a luau, and learning to dance the hula! Several students took the opportunity to thank those who have helped them get a great start on their education, and in many cases, a fresh start in life. Faces in the crowd: Cynthia Calvert, Larry Shiflet, Kathy Adkins, Eddie Stegall, Devon Alexander, Eric Skiles, Lisa Niccum, Bonnie Longnion and Frances McAndrews. For more information about the benefactor program at Kingwood College, call Janis Fowler, 281-312-1564. More than 50 ladies gathered for the Eagle Springs Ladies Club annual brunch and fashion show at Eagle Springs Club House on Saturday, May 5. The red rose and yellow carnation centerpieces and corsages were beautiful; made by Genevieve Ubnoskye and the Humble High School Floral Design classes. Clarissa Hall with Mary Kay Cosmetics organized the style show and did the makeup for the models. If you haven’t shopped at Linda Keith’s Celebrity Outlet (formerly Best Kept Secrets), you need to get on over there! Outgoing president Pam Alcaine introduced new president Denise Cobb. If you live in Eagle Springs, ladies, mark your calendar for Sept. 6, 2007, at 7 pm, the next meeting of Eagle Springs Ladies Club. Great friends and networking! Animals Always Believe in You (AABY) held their third annual “Afternoon of the Arts” garden party at Homewood Suites. Eugene Weisenbaker provided the “Javva Jazzy Sax” music that was enjoyed all afternoon. Faces in the crowd: Addie Wiseman, Gwendolyn Condeleo, Linda Dumas Bernal, Diane Blanco, Charlie and Kyle Campbell, Austin Tefteller, Robert and Dorota Sherlock, Karen Boughton, Philippe and daughter, Pauline Cras. Village Learning & Achievement Center’s annual golf tournament was held at Tour 18. The Winning Foursome, scoring 56 (!): Administaff Team 2: Dennis Buchanan; Robert Armstrong; Shannon Walker; James Blunt. A special award for Most Honest Team, scoring 72: Humble Police Officers: Jay Wrobliske; Gary Warman; Domingo Villarreal; Victor Gonzalez. Longest Drive winners: Joyce Hamlin; Robert Armstrong. A highlight of the dinner and awards program was Terri Jaggers, Mrs. America USA. This elegant, beautiful lady (she looked like a princess!), spoke on the topic of giving. Terri and her husband have been foster parents of 25 children, adopting five of them! One of Humble’s best kept secrets is the Railroad Café, facing Railroad at Main St. An historical building, originally a jail; later a fish market; is it any wonder that it’s a unique Italian restaurant? Owners and chefs Wayne and Sherry Falgiano present great food and service six nights a week to a loyal crowd. Recent guests: David and Diane Pierce; Stacy Pierce with Stephen Warren; David’s guests from Edmonton, Canada, Fred Fennerman and Don Lamar. At another table, Ron and Tina Denoville enjoyed their first Railroad experience. This week’s Featured Event: Car Show and Food Drive benefiting Society of St. Stephen, Saturday, June 2, from 10-2; Kingwood United Methodist Church, 1799 Woodland Hills Drive at Crystal Springs. Registration fee $15 in advance; $20 onsite to compete: Muscle Cars; Street Rods; Trucks; Sports Cars, and Antiques! Non perishable food items for Society of St. Stephen food pantry will be appreciated. Call Rev. Patrick Evans, 281-358-2137. Free admission! It’s not all said and done yet, but it looks like the Zach Jones Memorial Golf Tournament will bring in approximately $120,000 for scholarships! What’s on my calendar: May 24, Go Red For Women, American Heart Association luncheon, Houston Airport Marriott Hotel; information and reservations, Lindsey Mulholland, 713-610-5021. I’ll see you out and about!
