It’s Harvest Time

Diana Neely and Kay Garrett enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Texana Cafe’ in Fulshear, a non-profit serving exceptional food from exceptional people.

Who is ready to enjoy some cooler temps and a crisp chill in the air? After the summer we have experienced, I am more than ready. I am ready for fall football, shorter sunlit days, cooler evenings, the changing colors of the leaves, and of course, my all-time favorite; pumpkin spice-flavored treats that are found everywhere during this season.  Fall marks a time of magnificent  seasonal changes. Take a minute to appreciate the beauty of harvest time!

On the cover of this issue is Houston Methodist Breast Care Center at Sugar Land stressing the importance of getting your annual mammogram. Teamwork and compassion enable the Houston Methodist Breast Care Center to help women overcome their cancer diagnoses. The heart of the Houston Methodist Breast Care team is an experienced, multi-disciplinary team that works together to develop an individualized care plan that meets each patient’s unique needs. The message is clear: Don’t put off your mammogram.

Again this year we are featuring our Focus on Non-Profits section. Fort Bend County has so many great non-profits that benefit our community. Please check out this section on page 10 to see how you can get involved, donate or become a sponsor. Our non-profits truly are the heart of Fort Bend.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Our Focus on the Cure section has some informative articles to help educate you and your loved ones about awareness, detection and treatment options available in our community.

Enjoying harvest time in Fort Bend County is easy! Festivals and events abound this time of year, and one of my favorites is the Fort Bend County Fair. It’s a full ten days of rodeo fun, entertainment and activities for all ages. The Needville Harvest Fest is another great weekend event and family friendly. If you are looking to support one of the many non-profits in the area, see our calendar listing for upcoming events. Your support is greatly appreciated by each organization.  I hope you will take full advantage of all the entertainment and events right here in our Brazos community!

Absolutely yours,
