Welcome back to Out and About … the place where you can find out what’s happening in our community! The Humble Intercontinental Rotary Spaghetti Supper was a rousing success! Emceed by popular disc jockey Mark Linabury, with servers that included Dr. Linda Stegall, Dr. Guy Sconzo and Dale Early, guests were treated to a delicious dinner of spaghetti (prepared by the excellent cooks from local fire departments), salad, and delectable desserts provided by Women of Rotary. The music of the night ranged from soft jazz to very talented young musicians from area schools. The silent and live auctions brought in a lot of money for the many area charities that Rotary supports, including Village Learning & Achievement Center, Lake Houston YMCA, Feed My Lambs, FamilyTime, Children’s Emergency Relief International, HAAM and others. Faces in the crowd: Philippe and Mieke Cras; Bob and Janice Roy; Dr. Al Moore; Diane Sconzo; Gene O’Neal; Marietta Winters; Robert Scarfo and Gail Lynch; Cezar Gonzales; Dan and Janet Huberty; Denise Krieger; Marvin and Tracy Monk; Lisa Prusak; Kristi Williams; Christy Herring; Dawn Evans; Jeremy and Kim Wilkerson, with Kim still shaken from her auto accident the day before. Donning hard hats the illustrious board of governors of Kingwood Country Club toured the soon to be fabulous Fitness Facility at Clubs of Kingwood. Envisioning the exercise rooms, gym, spa, sauna, tennis pro shop, and snack bar, they could almost taste the smoothies and feel the yoga stretches! For membership information, contact Kirk Wilkinson (aka Capt. Kirk) or Lori Becknell at 281-358-2171. The Humble Area Chamber of Commerce March luncheon was held at Kingwood Country Club. Special guest speaker Mattress Mack (Jim McInvale) had the audience laughing, clapping and shedding tears throughout his motivating and uplifting presentation. Of course it was a hard act for Mack to follow Brigadier General Carlos Hayden who led the pledge of allegiance; Pastor Jim Davies of Kingwood First Presbyterian Church who gave the invocation; the beautiful voice of Judy Geiger as she sang America the Beautiful, and a special tribute to a local hero, Scott McIntosh, who recently lost his life in Iraq. The ballroom at the Humble Civic Center was overflowing (with pink!) as Humble Intercontinental Rotary hosted Humble High School graduate Amy Lively Langham, who told her amazing and poignant story of dealing with breast cancer during her pregnancy just a few years ago. The proof of her success, her healthy and adorable son Bryan stole the show! Kingwood Travel’s Sharon Lewis bought nearly 100 lunches for her VIP clients and guests. Faces in the crowd: Amy’s husband Gregg, daughter Barrett, and proud dad Phil Lively; Dr. Martin Basaldua; Janice Costa; Tracy Stunja; Jill Bagley; Gail Fry; Karen Boughton; Monica Bauer; Joyce Poindexter; Tami Heitzwebel; Monique Adamo; Dorothy O’Neal; JoAnn Ehrlich; Bob and Ruth Carter; Charlie and Judy Monaghan; Red and Lois Meredith; Charlie and Kyle Campbell; Rod and Eunice Dennis; many Rotarians and guests. Flowers of Kingwood’s Robin Martinez filled the room with bouquets of pink and white flowers on each table. Trigg’s catered the delicious luncheon buffet. This week’s featured event: It’s a Polynesian Paradise, the 8th annual Humble ISD Education Foundation Visions and Dreams Gala, Friday, April 4, 6:30 pm, at Humble Civic Center.
