Spring has Sprung!

Spring showers, windy days, budding trees and flowers bursting with color sprang early this year, and I’m loving it! The fresh air and fragrant smells of Springtime renews my soul, inspires my spirit and brings the wonder of new beginnings into my life. I hope this Spring is an inspiration for your soul and a magical time for renewal as well.  Springtime in Fort Bend County is always bursting with activities, and this year is no different. From galas to community fun events, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Our cover featuring Reining Strength Therapeutic Horsemanship (RSTH) is a heartwarming story about a lifelong advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. Co-founded by Tom and Peggy Hernandez and their daughter Heather Hernandez-Sedillo in 2014, RSTH was embraced by the community and has seen phenomenal growth each year.  They credit their amazing donors and volunteer base for their success and the community for embracing them.  For more information on how to get involved or volunteer, read more on page 6.  Fort Bend County is so fortunate to have this non-profit organization putting individuals with intellectual disabilities in the winner’s circle.

Our Medical Focus section is one not to be missed. There you will find articles from physicians to specialists throughout our community ready to help you with all of your medical needs.

Brazos is buzzing with great happenings this Spring! Mark your calendar now for the Wine Walk in Historic Downtown Rosenberg, or an evening out at the ever- popular Fort Bend History Association’s Lone Star Stomp at the George Ranch Historical Park.  And, of course, don’t miss the Derby Day Party benefiting Reining Strength Therapeutic Horsemanship on Saturday, May 6th.  There truly is something for everyone to enjoy this Spring.  I hope to see you all out and about in Brazos!

I’m enjoying this early Spring weather, and I hope you are too! Wishing you a happy Spring, a fun Spring Break and a Blessed Easter!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
