Summer is Sizzling!

Summer is sizzling and so is fishing! While Kay Garrett was fishing in Matagorda Bay, she caught a 20” trout!

Wow! This year’s summer heat is definitely one for the record books! I love summer and the great outdoors, lazy days filled with sunshine, trips to the beach, relaxing by the pool and adventures at the park. However, with these extra high temperatures, going anywhere without air conditioning is next to impossible. Although it is hot as heck, you can still find me sitting by my pool or out fishing somewhere. I hope you are out enjoying something fun this summer, despite the record heat!

July 4th will be heating up, and what could be more exciting than celebrating our nation’s birth right here in Fort Bend! George Ranch Historical Park, the City of Rosenberg and the City of Needville will each host a July 4th event, perfect for friends, family and fun. For information on these events, see page 22.

OakBend Medical Center’s Jack and Billie Wendt Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit has officially reopened bringing a new sense of normalcy to the healthcare facility. The ACE Unit was specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of elderly patients and provide exceptional care while having a home-like atmosphere. This multidisciplinary approach provides a team of experts, from physical therapists, nurses to dieticians and physicians, all working together to create an environment for mobility and independence. We are so lucky to have OakBend Medical Center’s ACE Unit right here in our community! To find out more about OakBend’s ACE Unit and all it has to offer, read our cover story on page 6.

I hope your summer has been filled with family, friends and most of all, fun.  Happy 4th of July to all of our Brazos community. Thank you to all servicemen past and present for the sacrifice you make each day to keep us safe and our country free!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
