SUMMER TIME!!!!! I look forward to the kids getting out of school and for schedules to become a little less hectic. Wine and Food Week jump-starts June with all the fun activities it brings to our area. While the social scene takes a much-needed rest during the next few months, there are tons of activities still in full swing at the local parks and throughout our wonderful town. Check out the live music and many other fun local Summer events happening with The Woodlands Convention Center and Visitors Bureau, thewoodlandscvb.com and The Township, thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov.

Take some time to enjoy your family. I challenge each of you to discover a new activity or hobby that the whole family can enjoy together. The days will fly by, but the memories that you will make together will last a lifetime.

I will continue to be out and about this summer, so you too can be “Scene in The Woodlands!” Keep me posted on your upcoming events! I LOVE to hear from you! If you would like to send high resolution photos from your events, please email them (Actual or Original size, with names attached) to whitney@gmont.com.

Be the change,
