Out and About
- Written by Kim Sullivan
Welcome back to Out and About … the place where you can find out what’s happening in our community! Ever look in the mirror and feel like it is time to freshen up your skin or your look? Local physician and friend, Dr. Melissa Young, had a vision and on Feb. 16, it became a reality! This remarkable woman has opened face it! skin therapy. The thing I love about Dr. Young is she will not do anything unless it is done right. I am here to tell you that you will absolutely be amazed with her facility and staff Stephanie, Lynn and Michelle. Her goal is to help you achieve your skin goals. I am so happy that someone is listening to me rather than telling me my boobs need augmentation! The two-story building has been refurbished with cool hues that make you feel relaxed and comfortable rather than in a clinical setting. It is just gorgeous! There you will find various treatment rooms, changing rooms, reception areas, store front shopping, and the list goes on and on. The products focus on overall skin health and are labeled as Dr. Young’s private skin care line. Is that impressive or what? I went back for a mini-facial and believe me – the skin care line is like none other. You can pop in – in an extremely confidential setting I might add – and visit about facials, peels, microderm abrasion, injectables, and the latest Cutera laser treatments. This laser will climb trees if you want it to! But on a serious note, with the Cutera you can experience Pearl resurfacing, Titan skin tightening (oh yes!) as well as vein treatments and hair removal. Already beautiful faces in the crowd included Ross Grasse (the gorgeous husband of Melissa), Christy Bertulli who catered the most amazing food, the team of Dr. Anderson, Juan Gabriel Cuellar and brother Ruben Cuellar, Sheila Yeary, Jason Kempenski, Dr. Csengery and his gorgeous wife, Stacey; Dr. Justina Taube and husband Michael (FYI alert – she is highly recommended for blepharoplasty), Maggie LaBove, Dedra Kalmbach, Dawn Bajalieh, Eunice Dennis, Heather Grasse, Callum Bailey, Charlie and Kristof Grasse and friends. And, last but not least, beautiful face wannabe, yours truly who wants you to keep checking out my eyes and skin over the next month! (I am so excited I could pop!) Location alert – right in the heart of our beloved Town Center at 21 N. Main in Kingwood. And dust off their little lunch suits they did! The PTA Founders Day Luncheon, held last Friday at Kingwood Country Club, was a huge success. These gals went all out this year with a record-breaking number of attendees (who spent record-breaking amounts of the green stuff!). Oh my gosh you guys, the atmosphere was so festive and fun. Get this – the tables, chairs, raffle table, silent auction table, and check-in table (and anything else you can think of) were adorned with flowers, feathers, confetti and metallic shred and tulle. The colors were all neon that included lime green, vibrant purple and pink! The 250-plus party animals loved lunch while listening to our delightful and beautiful Dr. Karen Perkins and Sindi Sonnier (event chair this year). Guest speaker was Tribune columnist Nancy Williams LPC, who delivered an inspirational message about maintaining our PTA vision and remembering “why we are here.” Thank goodness for waterproof mascara when it came time for special recognition for Corinn Price (Administaff), Lynn Fields and Barbara Madera. What dynamic women! Beautiful and happy faces included Vera Eisterhold, Robert Scarfo, Marilyn Mann, Luly Jenkins, Dan Huberty, Cathy Parva, Julia Porter, Jack Fields, Dave Martin and Mike Sullivan. Make sure you ask Walt Winicki and Jim Parsons about their eye glasses and hysterical dancing! Laissez bon temps roule! And roll they did! Our precious Pam Dickson reports that the first annual Mardi Gras gathering of the Society of Cork & Fork (what a hoot) was held at the lovely home of Richard and Meredith Hawley. Richard was ever so handsome, dressed in tux and Mardi Gras beads, handing guests their first glass of champagne. Of course, the theme was “everything French” and Meredith is an amazing hostess with the mostess! Even the bottled water was Evian! The tables were laden with everything from Brie to baguettes, Beaujolais to Chateauneuf du Pape, pate’ to muffaletta to gumbo―and let’s not forget the King Cake, too! Pam said that all she needs now is a way to get rid of the five extra pounds she had fun putting on! Enjoying a wonderful evening: Robert and Susan Lunson; John and Diane Myers; Don and Shirley Ellisor; Roy and Alice Lively; Ben and Jane Robles; Eddie Miller and Lisa Bell; Ruth Davies; Pam Dickson; (David was on the sick list). OK David – you realize that if you snooze – you loose! This is a big deal you guys so listen up! Cynthia Calvert reports that The Tribune has been accepted by Google’s News service.
