Welcome back to Out and About…. the only place that you can find out what’s happening in Kingwood, Atascocita and Humble! It was literally a sea of red at the Go Red for Women, annual American Heart Association luncheon, at the Airport Marriott, from hats to table cloths and everything in between! Event sponsor Kingwood Medical Center’s Gay Nord was luncheon chair. She encouraged the audience to take of themselves, and work together to eliminate heart disease and stroke, the Number 1 and 3 killers of women in our country. Cathy Fitzpatrick’s style show was fabulous, focusing on “retro futurism” (everything old is new again!), and the details of putting together a great looking outfit. Her creative and fun approach to shopping and looking “put together” had something for everyone. Although out of town on business, (and also celebrating his and wife Susan’s 33rd anniversary!) Administaff’s John Sheridan was the recipient of the Barbara Newman award. For many years, Barbara was a member of the AHA board, an advocate for many causes, and a great friend to the community. When she died of a heart attack just prior to the first annual luncheon, the board named the award in her memory and honor. This year also marked the first year of the Heart of Our Community Award, which well deserved, went to Administaff. More than 350 heart healthy guests in attendance, including: Lynn Fields, Karla Nash, Cynthia Calvert, Gwendolyn Condeleo, Sharon Lewis, Molly Webb, Gene O’Neal, Carol McCord, Mieke Cras, Danell Fields, Corinn Price, Dawn Rawson, Laurie Hiett, Carol Sutton, Nancy Reed, Nancy Shortsleeve, Barbara Byers, Judy Luquette, Angie Gentry, Terry Sawma, Linda Stegall, Diane Blanco, Addie Wiseman, Karen Perkins, Dr. Revana, and Kathie Gentry. Atascocita is growing, and that means new homes and businesses! On a recent Thursday evening on Lake Houston Parkway Tracy and Joe Stunja and Sarah and Ed Nowak hosted the grand opening of Re/Max Associates Northeast Atascocita offices. Everyone enjoyed the food from Kingwood’s Catering Connection, and the lovely afternoon to stroll through the center, visiting First American Title for yummy desserts, and Stewart Title, for Senorita Margaritas and goodies from On the Border. Faces in the crowd: Marty Landry, Carolyn McCauley, Tom Cook, Glen and Alice Rekeweg, Jeff Peters, Laura Ponce, Kevin Clark, Dianne Morgan, Rebekah Snipp, Daphne Farrar, Arlene Hoffman, Alyce O’Neal, Kay Caffey, Yvonne Duncan, Linda Ray, Moreen and Bill Dieden, Frank Aguilar and Barry Stringer. Board members and friends gathered at Amedeo’s to say good bye to Holy Trinity Episcopal School director Pam Dean and husband David. Pam has accepted the directorship of the Woodland Presbyterian School in Memphis.
