December 2019 – Exclamation Points!

Fab 15 and Fa-La-La-La-La! –

Tim and Patti Kaminski at Houston Methodist’s 100 Year Celebration “Rendezvous of the Century.”

Fifteen! I can’t believe this month marks our 15th birthday covering the people, places and happenings in Fort Bend. So much has happened in our community in the past 15 years, and in this special celebration issue, we take a look at the new and extraordinary things that have made our community what it is today. We’re calling it Fort Bend Focus Fab 15. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.

In this special issue, we are also bringing you the Focus Favs from our 2019 Readers’ Choice survey. Who has the best burger? The best margarita? Check out what nearly 7,000 readers said about their favorites on page 21.

Our readers, advertisers and subscribers are our favorites, and we couldn’t possibly let this milestone anniversary pass without a fabulous Fort Bend Focus celebration to thank each and every one of you. We want to invite you to celebrate with us at our Fort Bend Focus Fab 15 Birthday Bash! We are hosting a Birthday Bash celebrating not only our birthday, but the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land’s birthday as well!  Now, we’re the older sibling at 15, but the museum is celebrating its 10th birthday, so we’re having a party. Join us and Devil Rex for a T-Rex-sized Birthday Bash on December 4th. And since it’s the holiday season, please bring a new, unwrapped toy for Santa’s Exchange. Visit to RSVP and for all of the details.

Abraham Lincoln said, “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” We’ve had a lot of life in our 15 years at Fort Bend Focus Magazine. Here’s to the next 15!

Yes, we are excited about our birthday this month, but let us not forget the most important birthday boy this month: Jesus. From our family to yours, we wish you a holiday season filled with the people you love most. Birthday blessings and Merry Christmas Fort Bend friends!

Stay focused!
