I hope everyone had a happy and restful holiday weekend. As I mentioned in last week’s edition, our community hosted a multitude of events to celebrate Independence Day. Area residents were offered several different sets of firework displays; on July 3rd at the Kingwood Country Club; then at Kingwood Town Center, King’s Harbor, Valley Ranch Town Center on July 4th and lastly, at The Overlook in Atascocita on July 5th.
Our region braced for a possible storm this week and it was reassuring to see Governor Abbott, Mayor Turner and Judge Hidalgo taking swift actions to prepare. As of this morning, Tropical Storm Barry is expected to make landfall in Louisiana some time early tomorrow. This is a great reminder for everyone to be prepared during hurricane season: be informed, make a plan and build a kit. Visithttp://www.txready.org/ for more information.
