What’s New for Summer?

Patti and Tim Kaminski enjoying some summertime R and R.

It’s summer in Texas, and that means three-digit degree days, oppressing humidity and make-up melt downs, but it’s our Texas, and we love it in spite of its summer sizzle.

With the temperature not so temperate this month, we’ve taken a hiatus from the horrendous heat, stayed indoors and have given Fort Bend Focus a little facelift – a fresher, new look to spice up things a bit.  We hope you enjoy the new look.

Dhanani Private Equity Group (DPEG) is also celebrating something new – their brand-new corporate headquarters located in the company’s largest trophy acquisition to date in Stafford.  With the purchase of The Fountains on the Lake Shopping Center, DPEG has made their home in Fort Bend, and they are continuing their monumental success in real estate development and private equity with some amazing goals for the year.  Read about DPEG, their new home and their plans for the future on page 8.

The Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land is also celebrating something new this summer – their new exhibit TreeHouses.  TreeHouses is a hands-on exhibit focusing on the sights, sounds and animals who call trees home.  Best of all, visitors can explore the forest indoors!

It’s also time to start thinking about the new school year and getting those much-anticipated new supplies.  The Texas Sales Tax-Free Weekend is coming up August 11th – 13th, and we share what’s included on the tax-exempt list on page 22.

While there’s much to do this summer, there’s something to be said for simply relaxing and enjoying the season.  Author James Dent said it best: “A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and the lawnmower is broken.”

Enjoy your summer Fort Bend!

Stay focused,
