Soakin’ Up the Celebrations

The lazy, hazy days of summer are finally here, and I, for one, am ready for a more laid-back pace as we celebrate life a bit slower.

Celebrations are a major theme in this issue as we share with you our top grads from Fort Bend ISD and Fort Bend Christian Academy.  Our vals and sals are stellar this year, and we are proud to shine the spotlight on them as they embark on the next chapter of their educational journey.  And, we also share some amazing young women who have earned scholarships from our very own Fort Bend Junior Service League.  Yes, the future looks bright for these young scholars, and we congratulate them on their achievements!

We also celebrate dad this month for Father’s Day, and Steve has a couple of great ideas to toast good ole dad in his column on page 16.  And of course, if you would like to do something special for dad at home, you can always prepare a feast fit for a king, and we have some great recipes for you on page 20.

Another great celebration in this issue is the 25th anniversary of our friends at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.  They have been providing state-of-the-art healthcare right here in our community for 25 years – what a huge milestone!

And yet another milestone celebrated was the grand opening of the new corporate headquarters in Stafford of our friends at Dhanani Private Equity Group (DPEG). DPEG celebrated big with their first quarterly distribution of 2023 in excess of $7 million to over 400 of their investor partners with a grand celebration. Congratulations to Team DPEG!

I hope you enjoy some meaningful celebrations this month be they graduations, weddings, birthdays, Father’s Day celebrations, vacations and everything that the summer seasons brings.  For me, I think I’m going to take a moment and be like Sheryl after what seems like a longer than normal, dreary winter: “I wanna soak up the sun.”

Stay focused!
