Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community! There could not have been a more beautiful day for this year’s Lake Houston YMCA BridgeFest!

The February gathering of the Kingwood Area Realtor Advisory Board was held at The Veranda Restaurant. The room was packed with Realtor and community types who lunched while EMCID president Frank McCrady talked about plans for the dinosaur and water parks, hotels, shops and much more. The lunch received “wows” from the crowd, from the spinach and strawberry salad to the crème brulet with strawberries for dessert. In between was the delicious entrée of steak and chicken, with hot, fresh French rolls. My table voted the mashed potatoes and the mango iced tea “the best in the world.” Faces in the crowd: Tim Fitzpatrick; Kyle and Monica Bauer; Ed Jones; Gwendolyn Condeleo Crawford; Andrew Sweatman; Kirk Wilkinson, Ken Snyder; Keith Hebert; Tammy Theriot; Gayla Nizzi; Jennifer Hunter, and of course, the hostess with the mostess, Karen Boughton. Congratulations to new grandparents: Leonard and Kim Brusatori; Larry and Arlette Jeffries; Wes and Linda Miles.
