Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community. The beautiful East Montgomery County Improvement District building was filled to capacity as friends and supporters gathered to enjoy the sixth annual One Life at a Time luncheon, style show and fundraiser benefiting The Mission. The Tribune’s lovely and fashionable Cynthia Calvert was luncheon emcee, and Caron McMahon, CAbi (Carol Anderson by Invitation) representative facilitated a fun showing of the latest fall fashions. Amedeo’s catered a delicious lunch that included personal size cheese cakes, both vanilla bean and Bailey’s chocolate for each person. Flowers of Kingwood provided beautiful centerpieces of red alstromeria, carnations and roses. The testimony of Terri Norris touched every heart in the room as she shared what The Mission has meant in her life.
