It’s Summertime! –

Summer is in full swing, which means eating ice cream, heading to the pool or beach and participating in outdoor activities. Summertime fishing and watching baseball are some of my favorites.  Summer is the essence of life, growth, heat and activity.

July 4th will be heating up and what could be more fun this summer than celebrating our nation’s birth right here in Fort Bend!  Fulshear and Rosenberg will each host a July 4th event, perfect for friends, family and fun. For more fun on a warm summer evening, join us at the Downtown Stomp in Rosenberg on August 4th benefiting the Fort Bend County Fair. Downtown merchants will participate with after-hours shopping, wine tastings, live music and more.

Fort Bend County is lucky to have award-winning hospitals and medical care. Our medical focus section features a variety of leading healthcare providers in the area. AccessHealth is one such organization setting the standard high as they recently received all A’s in affordable, accessible and advanced healthcare. To find out more about their excellent services, read our cover story on page 6.

Looking for something unique, exciting and educational for the kids? Check out the Fort Bend Museum – Children’s Summer History Fridays on page 1.   

Back to School will soon be knocking again – the time of year that is welcomed by parents and cringed at by kids. In order to help parents get one step ahead, read our absolutely! Kid Friendly on page 12.

Happy 4th of July to all our Brazos friends and do something YOU enjoy this summer!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
