Spring has finally arrived, and in Fort Bend, that means it’s time to get out and about and enjoy everything our community has to offer.

A huge opportunity for our community this month is a birthday party!  Celebrating a huge milestone this month – 40 years of changing young mens’ lives through music – the Fort Bend Boys Choir is “Painting the Town Red” with a March 26th concert. If you’ve never heard these amazing young men perform, you’re missing one of the truly most amazing and unique gifts of Fort Bend. They are stars, and they are right here in our own back yard.  Read all about their amazing career in our cover story.

Speaking of stars, a true Hollywood legend comes to Fort Bend on March 25th for Reading Between the Wine’s Night of a Thousand Laughs benefitting The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County. Actress, comedian, author and singer Vicki Lawrence is the featured entertainer for an evening you won’t want to miss. Famous for her roles on The Carol Burnett Show and Mama’s Family, Lawrence is an Emmy-award winning actress famous for her unique brand of comedy, and after the last couple of years, we could all use a few laughs. Tickets are still available to see this star up and close and personal by contacting the Literacy Council at 281.240.8181.

In Fort Bend Strong, Pete gives us some great ideas for some of his favorite Spring activities right here in the Bend. Read about his picks on page 32.

While the calendar clearly tells us it’s Spring, we Texans clearly understand what Spring means here in the Lone Star State:  keep a jacket handy because the weather can and likely will change in a hot minute.  I remember when my babies were little packing swim suits and ski jackets for our Spring break jaunts throughout the state.  Mr. Kaminski always fussed at me for over-packing, but when that cold spell inevitably blew in whether we were at the shore or in the Hill Country, my babies were snug as bugs because after all, momma knows best.

Have a wonderful Spring, and I hope to see you out and about in the Bend!

Stay focused,
