Hello Fort Bend Friends,

Our mission at Fort Bend Focus is to be a community resource and partner. We live by our mission and enjoy covering and featuring so many worthwhile causes. Texana Center recently honored Fort Bend Focus along with absolutely! Brazos magazines at their “Reaching for the Stars” gala for our coverage of their mission, and I must say, we are very proud to be a community partner with such a worthwhile organization.

Speaking of community partners, Fort Bend Focus is now a community partner to Farmers Market at Imperial. Each Saturday morning, in addition to great produce and home made goods, shoppers can pick up a complimentary copy of Fort Bend Focus. And, of course, we’ll be Out in the Bend capturing photos of shoppers to feature in our upcoming issues.

We are fortunate to have reached our 100th issue milestone, and we are continuing our celebration with our 100 Days of Give Aways. We have had such a grand response on Facebook – friends are grabbing these gifts daily – and you can continue to win as our contest runs through June 8th. Check us out at www.facebook.com/fortbendfocus. Congratulations to all who have won so far!

Although October is usually reserved for Breast Cancer Awareness, Fort Bend Focus thought it is so important we should cover it this May for Mother’s Day by focusing on an amazing mother and cancer survivor.  As we celebrate Mom, let’s remember all of the women in our lives and the importance of self-examinations, annual exams and awareness of your options right here in Fort Bend County with Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

Don’t forget to get Mom something she will really like from our Things We Love Gift Guide on page 74.

Enjoy your Mother, your Grandmother, Aunt, Sister or just special friend this month, and we will see you around the Bend!

Stay Focused,

Lisa Fredrickson
