Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community. Hundreds gathered at the Humble Civic Center to participate in Humble’s National Day of Prayer―blue jeans, suits, military attire; young and old – folks came together united in purpose that morning, to worship and to celebrate our freedoms. You may not know that this was the 59th annual observance of this day. Prayers were lifted up for every aspect of our lives, including our country, military, city, law enforcement, children, youth, families, education, and medical care, by Mayor Donnie McMannes, Police Chief Gary Warman, City Councilman Mike Sullivan, Corporal Robin Robinson, Jay Mincks, Rev. Buddy Hicks, Rev. Scott Jones, Mike Byers, Rev. Tom Billings, Dr. Mary Cavnar-Johnson, Dr. Guy Sconzo, Dan Huberty, and many others. Grace Church provided the music, including the breath taking “Star Spangled Banner” at the conclusion of the program. Congressman Ted Poe and Rev. Franklin Graham made video appearances. Humble/Atascocita community supporters, Chick Filet, Lenny’s Sub Shop, Jason’s Deli, Panera Bread, and Starbucks provided a complimentary breakfast that was enjoyed by the crowd that included: Georgia McMannes, Allen Lee, Tim Baker, Dave Kilby, Andy Dill, Don Allen, Jerri Bankston, Casey Christman, Bob Garlington, Don and Fay McMath, Richard and Beth Whittier, Joe and Carolyn Dickerson, and hundreds of others. The morning concluded with the release of dozens of red, white, and blue balloons outside the Civic Center. Auction Action: What do Bill’s Café, Chez Nous, Robert Gilroy with Majestic Fine Wines, and The Tribune’s own wine expert David Dickson have in common? They were all part of a fabulous silent auction package at last year’s Mothers Against Cancer (MAC) Luncheon. It was truly a rare sight at Bill’s Café, normally closed on Sundays, to see a red table cloth, vases of red roses, and several wine glasses adorning a table for eight; yet even more unusual to see MAC members Cheri Huber(Bill’s owner) flippin’ burgers and Chris Parker waitin’ tables! Sherri Broussard was the lucky purchaser of the event that also included a barbeque pit and many other fine offerings. Sherri invited her hubby Bruce, and six lucky friends to share the evening with her: Ed and Angie St. Dizier; Bob and Beth Cirpriani; Tom and Jill Hobbs. Chez Nous provided the dessert, a fabulous flourless chocolate cake with raspberries, which Robert complemented with a rich cabernet. Thomas Markle hosted a “Go Red for Women” VIP Party at his Kingwood location to recognize the American Heart Association prior to the May 7 luncheon. Beautiful faces in the crowd included Aggie Green, Leesa Love, Cheryl “CJ” Johnson, Devon Alexander, Nancy Shortsleeve, Layna Netek, and Jennifer Summer, a helpful contingent of the store’s expert jewelry advisors.
