You will need to ask these ladies which one of them is the “famous” gymnast! Those of you who are fans of Elvis may also be fans of Jesse Aron, considered by his peers to be one of the top three Elvis tribute artists in the country. Jesse is returning with his wife Tarie, aka Marilyn Monroe, to delight you with Elvis from the ‘50s, ‘60s and Vegas. Appearances will be at Chuy’s in Humble Jan. 8 at 6 p.m., and in Conroe at the Crighton Theater Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. Contact Steve Fountain, 832-623-4812, for more info.

The Humble Intercontinental Club has two exchange students who are attending schools in our area. One of these young ladies is in immediate need of a host family. For more information, contact Valerie Copley at 281-814-5803. It’s been a busy holiday season, but it has been more than fun and festivity. Thanks to our generous community, thousands of needy persons have received food, gifts and other assistance from churches, nonprofit organizations, business and individuals. That’s something to celebrate! Happy New Year! I’ll see you out and about!
