Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community! Music on the Park was a wonderful success thanks to the dedicated organizers; outstanding sponsors and a great showing of support from the public. It was a hot June day, but thankfully, there was a nice breeze, and as evening approached, folks arrived with lawn chairs and ice chests to enjoy the music and fun. Title sponsor was Sterling McCall Honda, and other sponsors included A Grand Affair, Chimichurri’s, Los Cucos, Delicate Delectables, Janco Beverages, Let’s Cook with Pat and Cherryl, Villas at Kingwood Estates, Pearson Carpet Cleaning, and others. Good food, a variety of vendors, lots of music! Some faces in the crowd: Annette Wood; Terri Boswell; Cheryl Johnson; Dwayne Ulrich; Tony and Cheryl Austin; Karen Boughton; Carol Bagley; Sevala Sadic; Howard Pitman; Andrew Sweatman; Dave and Judy Luquette; Danny and Geralyn Sullivan; Andie Szabo; Kay Pass; Jerri Bankston; Tracy Zacek; Toby McSwain; Ronnie Chance, and of course, event organizer Cheryl Young. Eating exceptional food and drinking fine wines in the elegant setting of Chez nous Restaurant in Humble, and all for a good cause (Harkins House) – priceless. That’s what you’ll think if you are among the select patrons who respond quickly to this event opportunity set for Thursday evening, June 26. For the first 30 patrons who RSVP, the wine tasting will begin at 6 pm, followed by a four-course dinner; cost $250 per person. Or be among the first 60 patrons who make reservations for the fabulous dinner at 7:30 at $150 per person. Harkins House provides an alternative to abortion and a safe haven for young, homeless women facing unplanned pregnancies.

Your support will make a positive difference in the future of some young women and new babies who really need and will appreciate your help. “I never can say good-bye” is Pascale McIver’s theme song these days, but she and Jimmy are trying to say good-bye for now to their many friends and family in the Kingwood area. As previously mentioned, the McIver family is moving to Newport Beach, CA this month. One weekend in particular was a whirlwind of parties, beginning with an Arroyo Vineyards wine tasting dinner at the elegant Raveneaux Country Club, followed by a going away party at the lovely home of Bailey and Kim Dixon, followed by a couples shower for Rich McIver and fiancée Holly Pavlick, who are engaged to be married Oct. 11 – whew! Amedeo’s catered the Dixons’ party, and Raffa’s catered the McIvers’ shower; so there was plenty of great food for all. Some of the 70 faces in the crowd at the Dixons’ included: Bill and Margie Hedges; John and Shirley Stump; Curt and Donna Sellentin; Chris and Marcia McIver; Katie McIver and Colin Pierce; Tim and Beth Lyman; Andy and Paul Kinsella; Toby and Mia May; Tony and Leslie Raffa. The restful surroundings of Don and Shirley Ellisor’s Crosby ranch captivated the guests who gathered for a gourmet evening of the Cork and Fork Society. The party theme was Australia; so guests brought an Australian food, accompanied by the perfect pairing of an Australian wine. The hands down favorite was the shish kabob prepared by Richard and Meredith Hawley, who will host the next event. Guests included Robert and Susan Lunson; Eddie Miller and Lisa Bell; Bill and Glenda McLendon, Charles Emmert and Michelle White. Everyone was thrilled when Eddie and Lisa announced their engagement and invited the group to their July wedding! What’s on my calendar: Tennis anyone? The first annual Including Kids Tennis Tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Kingwood Country Club. There will be a women’s, men’s, and mixed doubles tournament, a reception and raffle. Sponsorships range from $100 to $3,500, and ads in the program are available from $25 to $100. I can’t say enough good things about this organization located in Atascocita, which provides one on one programs for children with autism and related disorders. It’s estimated that autism affects 1 in 150 children. Their goal is to raise $100,000 in order to keep costs affordable for most families and to provide several of their programs at no cost.

Railroad Café in Humble is celebrating their 10th anniversary! For cozy, intimate dining with unique and delicious Italian food, Railroad is the place to go. Owner Wayne Falgiano has added to the patio, creating a nice place to sit outdoors. If you are a Beth Moore fan, or if you would like to be one, there is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
