Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community. Entrepreneur and community leader Danell Fields hosted a fabulous grand re-opening of Danell’s Florals and Gifts to celebrate the shop’s 10th . From morning to evening, Danell and her team welcomed guests and treated them to an array of food and beverages that included tea, wine, Mexican and Italian favorites, boiled shrimp, bread pudding, and Bailey’s chocolate cheese cake. Planning to drop in for “just a few minutes,” guests stayed and enjoyed, including: Chet and Anita Frazier; Katherine Persson; Michelle Parnell; Carol Sutton; Doug and Beth Stanley; Devon Alexander; Harriet Denning; Trish Oliva; Diane Blanco; Twila Ilgen; Tammy Nigro; Larry and Cynthia Calvert Shiflet; Wilson Calvert; Paul and Denise Krieger; Cherrie Ledoux; Phil and Karen Boughton (who brought homemade baklava as a gift to Danell). In addition to gorgeous fresh flowers, plants, and silk arrangements, Danell’s also offers must have candles and lotions, including those in the popular Circle E and Primrose lines. We left with purchases we just couldn’t resist! Amedeo’s is the site of many lunch time power tables―this was a very prominent one: HISD Superintendent Dr. Guy Sconzo and Steep Creek Media owner Cynthia Calvert recently hosted a thank you luncheon for Jerry Gerald, owner of Best Investments and Siding, and Heath Rushing, service line administrator for Memorial Hermann Hospital. These local community leaders stepped up to sponsor the brand new Humble ISD website. Marketing Consultants Debbie Marvin and Patsy Oliver were also part of the special recognition. Kevin Kilgore of Kids R Kids and Modern Home Improvement owners Tim Derr and Mike Wimberly also sponsored the new website. Founder and long time director of Mission Northeast, Lorie Young, was recently recognized for 15 years of service to the needy and our community. Several events were hosted in her honor, including the Community Chamber of Commerce, where Congressman Kevin Brady presented a commendation; a board farewell dinner at Amedeo’s, and a reception at Homewood Suites, attended by staff and more than 70 Mission volunteers, where Karen Campbell, District Assistant from State Senator TommyWilliams’office, presented Lorie with a special proclamation. It’s hard to say good-bye to a good friend; so Mission staffer Lily Cryer gifted Lorie with a homemade quilt depicting 15 years of Mission history. Kendra Wise of Kingwood Glass and Webb Gallery owner MollyWebb put their heads and hands together to create a gorgeous mosaic cross. Lorie and husband Dave will move to Tyler next month where they are building their retirement dream home. On a recent Thursday Dan Huberty, Candidate for State Rep. Dist. 127, hosted a dinner meeting at Zammitti’s for local Precinct Chairs. Among the attendees were the Chair for Senate District 4, Alice Rekeweg and husband Glen, Larry Lane, Richard Leofsky, Walter Thompson, and Cheryl Johnson. There were so many choices of where to go after the meeting, including a Meet & Greet with County Judge Ed Emmett at Walden Country Club, hosted by the Lake Shores Republican Women’s Club. The Rekewegs dined on the beautiful patio at Zammitti’s. Several others attended Raffa’s impeccable Seafood and White Wine dinner. Special guest Jean Trimbach, Owner/Winemaker of Trimbach Winery, came from Alsace, France to enjoy the amazing presentation of perfectly paired foods created by talented Chef Extraordinaire David Welch. Among the 30 + guests dining at Raffa’s: Mike and Elaine Say; Jerry and Phyllis Smith; Mike and Layna Netek.  Holly Pollman-Oberst hosted a surprise birthday party in her lovely home for good friend Geralyn Sullivan. Faces in the celebration included Geralyn’s husband Danny, son Michael, and daughter Kelly, visiting from college, her dad Jack Kelly, brother Steve Kelly and wife Amy; Sparky and Mary Nolan; Randy and Jan Koshnick; David and Page Cherry; Daniel and Cherrie Ledoux; Dave and Gwendolyn Crawford; Paul and Denise Krieger; Christopher and Jill Curran; CJ Johnson and Dwayne Ulrich. “Eat, Drink, Enjoy, Repeat”!
