Fabulous Fall Fun

Another Fall festivity - Kolton and Patti celebrating Mr. Kaminski’s birthday!

Another Fall festivity – Kolton and Patti celebrating Mr. Kaminski’s birthday!

Cooler weather is finally here, and it makes me want to get out and about and enjoy all of the things that the Fall season is famous for – the festivals, the outdoor events and of course, the football games! From the Great Pumpkin Round Up to the Sugar Plum Market to the ARC’s “Best in the West,” we’re bringing all of the details of your Fall favs to you in this issue.

While Fall fun is top of mind this month, there are some important issues on our to do list for October. As we focus on Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we meet two wonderful ladies who share their stories about how mammograms saved their lives at Houston Methodist Breast Care Center in Sugar Land.  We also share some great resources in Focus on the Cure to make certain our readers have everything at their fingertips to be educated about breast cancer awareness and detection.

Another must do this month is vote!  Early voting for our November election begins on October 24th, and we share a list of early voting locations in Fort Bend on page 16.  We also introduce eight judicial candidates who are on the ballot for you to learn more about before heading to the polls.

For some reason, Fall always makes me feel energized.  Perhaps it’s the cooler temps or the sigh of relief when a more normal schedule returns from the lazy days of summer.  Yes, I’m a routine kind of girl.  I like a good plan.  F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”  I believe he was onto something.

Enjoy the weather, enjoy all of the activities that Fall has to offer and I hope to see you out and about in the Bend.  And Happy Halloween to our little ghouls and goblins!

Stay focused – and on schedule!
