Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community! Hey Guys! Pam is leading another team to Nigeria (God love her as she is a wonderful woman!), so I am back for a few weeks and it is great to share with you again! Paige and I attended the matinee of “Snow White” and were mesmerized by the quality of the production. Choreographed by Kelly Agnew and produced by Cheryl Rowland and parent volunteers, this show was unbelievable! Katharine Larson danced the role of Snow White and was partnered with Eric Vaughn. I had goose bumps all afternoon and it made me want to take a ballet class! Just kidding, because it would kill me at my age! Hello! Sound familiar? Listen up parents that want or need activities for their kids this summer! Devon Alexander, dear friend and the extraordinary marketing person for Continuing Education at Lone Star College-Kingwood, says that the college is in need of volunteers for the summer. Your children will assist instructors with children ages 6 – 14 in summer programs! Sessions run from July 9 until Aug. 8 and the best part is that they get community hours for their efforts! For more information, contact Devon or Terry Hebert at 281-312-1664 or 1760. Y Knot Luncheon? Sparky is at it again! It was the official launch for Kings Harbor and I really want to live there! There were somewhere between 300 and 400 people who attended. At the luncheon, Sparky Nolan announced that the Kingwood Chamber of Commerce is moving to Kings Harbor – no kidding - and that Sparky himself is buying a beautiful Carlton on the water. How’s that for standing behind local business? HWD sponsored two tables. They had some amazing Realtors at their table that included Susan Brown, Suzanne Noonan Murphy, Barbara Noonan, Joan Imperato ( I just love her!), Ellen Liming, Joan Osborne, Joanne Jester, Jenny Carroll, Eileen Stanley, Lynn Boyd, Alice Pope, Dora Lopez and Jacqueline Lorenz. Robert Davis spoke, who is the “D” of Hanfeld, Whitmer, Davis. KARW (Kingwood Area Republican Women), supports Mission Northeast at this time of year by collecting donations of nonperishable food, baby wipes, formula and diapers. Please restock the shelves at Mission Northeast for their always busy summer season! For more information, please contact my wonderful friend, Halene Crossman, www.kingwoodarearepublicanwomen.org. Sharon and Lonnie B. Johnson Sr., of Atascocita, recently attended Sharon’s 50th High School Reunion at Burlington Jct. Missouri. What a trip and they shared so many memories with the following “in” crowd (oh yeah): Mary Jo Dwyre Combs, Carolyn Gage Jones, Eloise Shipley Carpenter, Bette Rasmussen Williams, Jean Elliott Ramerez, Sharon Kay Watkins Johnson, Carol Jean Staples Churchill and Larry Yates. ean Pierson, Jerry Lee Hill, Sam Lyle, Richard Hann, Lloyd Dean Pitts and Kenneth Merriett. OK – we all love Fall Creek – right? Well, let me tell you that Tom Broad (marketing guru at Memorial Hermann NE) has his pulse on it! Business is booming in Fall Creek! Dr. Gregg Castillo recently put out his medical shingle at 14954 Mesa Drive (just off Beltway 8 and Highway 59) and a couple weeks ago the Humble Area Chamber made it official with a ribbon cutting. Memorial Hermann Northeast CEO Louis Smith was there along with Karen Frye, Nancy Allen and Tom Broad, all from Northeast. Dr. Castillo’s proud parents (how can we get them to adopt us?), provided the lunch menu and quite a few Chamber members came by to enjoy the homemade sandwiches and take a tour of the offices: Phyllis Tobola of Minuteman Press of Humble, Ken Zinnecker of Market America, Dr. Bruce and Silvia Gillory, Rita Zarghami of Redstone Realty, and Andie Szabo of Ext. 19 Answering Service. The Chamber was well-represented by President Mike Byers and staffers Jerri Bankston, Angie Gentry and Stephanie Biondolillo. Dr. Castillo, a family practitioner, attended the University of Texas Medical School Houston. What a brave man in today’s world! Humble ISD Board member Lynn Fields was honored by her husband former Congressman Jack Fields and their two daughters, Jordan and Lexi, Fields for her contributions to the school district and community. Mrs. Fields has retired from the Board as she decided not to run for another term. Some of Lynn’s priorities during her 14 years as a member of the board of trustees include urging the development of a character education program and a Spanish immersion program. In addition, she worked tirelessly against teenage drinking and drug use. Congressman Fields presented a $5,000 check to the Humble ISD Education Foundation for a character education grant in his wife’s name. Thank you so much, Lynn! I know that I speak for everyone in wishing you many happy days to come! I’ll see you out and about!
