Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community! Timing is everything! Two of our favorite people, Danny and Geralyn Sullivan celebrated September birthdays. Before Ike, Geralyn celebrated at Chimichurri’s with lots of friends and family, including her dad Jack and Danny’s parents. Following Ike, Danny celebrated with a terrific birthday lunch at Los Cucos; son Michael and daughter Kelly were there. Many lucky friends were able to attend one or both events, including: Cherrie Ledoux; Cheryl (C. J.) Johnson and her mom Judy; Paul and Denise Krieger; Holly Oberst; Mark Linabury and son Marky; Ronnie and Brenda Chance with daughter Robin Herrera; Mike Ward; Gwendolyn Condeleo Crawford; Dwayne Ulrich; Lamar Berry; Gary Carriere; and Ed Dormer. Everyone was thrilled to see Bill and Diane Cantrell at Danny’s party. More “Ike Relief” from Amedeo’s as Joe and Susan Romano, otherwise known as “Mood Indigo,” delighted the crowd with their amazing harmony and acoustic guitar. It was easy to see why they are such favorites in many Houston venues, including The Daily Revue Café, and we know they’ll be back in Kingwood. As always, hosts Tony and Leslie Raffa and Beth Duncan made sure that everyone had a wonderful evening. The special Mahi Mahi with avocado risotto was so delicious that it defies description. It was a great feeling of “getting back to normal” as the crowd enjoyed the smooth, easy listening jazz, great food, and friendly atmosphere, including: Rod and Eunice Dennis; Ron and Susan White; Jess and Danell Fields; Victor and Diane Blanco; Nancy Reed; Charlene Turner; Judith Anderson; Owen and Mary Ruth Jones (who had just returned from Argentina); Nick and Betsy Woutas; Ed and Peggy Glazier; Richard and Len Leofsky; Ruth Bogus; and many more. Holy Trinity Episcopal School is still planning to hold their 10th annual Golf Tournament at Kingwood Country Club, Marsh Course, Friday, Oct. 17. The hole in one prize is a Toyota Titan truck, in honor of the school’s mascot, a Titan, like the Tennessee Titans. There is still time to sponsor and/or sign up, and who wants to miss an opportunity to play golf on a Friday in October?! For more information, www.hteshouston.org or call 281-459-4323. I hope you make a hole in one and win the new truck! Hurricane Ike Relief Concert: Keller Williams Realty Northeast in Kingwood will hold a Hurricane Ike relief concert Friday, Oct. 3 from 7-10 p.m. at Kings Harbor with live music by the 8 Seconds Band. This is free and open to the public. Lawn chairs and coolers are welcome. The concert will honor the community’s Hurricane Heroes. To nominate someone who assisted the northeast Houston area in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, send their name, contact information, and a description of their heroic effort, along with a photo, if available, to This email address is being protected from spambots.

FamilyTime’s shelter, The Door, incurred unexpected costs when women and children evacuated to The Door from shelters in the Galveston area. Not only that, the counseling center sustained serious water damage, and the (newest) Thrift Shop located on Aldine Mail Route, will be closed for a number of weeks due to roof and water damage. The concert is the first of a monthly series of concerts sponsored by Keller Williams at Kings Harbor; future concerts are slated for the third Friday of each month. Sat. Oct. 4 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Holy Comforter Lutheran Church 1901 Woodland Hills Dr. in Kingwood will host a Health and Safety Fair, free and open to the community. Registration begins at 8:30, followed by a “Healing Service” at 9 a.m., dedicated to healing of nations, including our own, and ends at 1 p.m. with a short “Sending Service.” Breakout sessions will be held for all ages. Classes include: Planning Ahead for All the Right Reasons, presented by Kingwood Funeral Home; Suicide Prevention presented by The Jason Foundation; Getting Rid of Your Stuff presented by noted humorist/therapist Marion Pietz; Alcohol Poisoning presented by Susan Wagener; Bike Safety for Kids; Child ID Kits; Internet Safety presented by Melissa Hulin from The Texas Center for the Missing; GASP, the choking game; Blood Donation opportunities, (much needed right now) through the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Bank; a fun exercise class for the whole family, and many more to choose from, as many as three sessions per person. More info: Holy Comforter Lutheran Church, 281-358-6500. You won’t want to miss the free and wonderful Tom Morrissey Art Exhibit at Lone Star College - Kingwood, SFA Building, Art Gallery, from Oct. 14 – Nov. 14, including a very special recognition for Gold Star Moms. (The opening reception is October 14 from 6 - 7 pm.). For times and more information, contact Jaimee Benson at 281-312-1534 or go online to Kingwood.LoneStar.edu. Remember there are many free (or very low cost) music, theatre and fine arts events at Lone Star Kingwood. Check the college Web site and stay tuned to this newspaper for updates. Macy’s Deerbrook sustained considerable damage during Ike and will remain closed for some months to come. Curb Service? While Gatsby’s in Atascocita was “powerless,” hair stylist Jimmy Poskey was cutting and coloring hair for desperate and very grateful clients on the sidewalk in front of Gatsby’s. That’s really “service with style!” I’ll see you out and about!
