Though it is still several months until the annual City of Humble Christmas Parade, the committee has been hard at work to make sure this year’s parade is a success.

The Christmas Parade committee, which was formed through the City of Humble Beautification committee, discussed several continuous beautification efforts in the city as well as everything needed to continue with the planning of the annual parade Aug. 8.

The committee decided on the theme of “Christmas time in Humble” which is a more generic theme than they have had in the past.

With right around 90 vendors filling the Humble Civic Center, a very special VIP Lounge with Live Music courtesy of The Mambo Jazz Kings, Wine Tastings, and food from some of the best local restaurants, as well as a very special Silent Auction, raffles and more to benefit our charities, the Mid-Summer Market will be a cool escape from the warm summer humdrums.

David Preisler and his family are familiar to residents and regulars at the Oakhurst Golf Club. Preisler and his wife Debbie, owners of the club, along with their college age daughter Rachel and soon-to-be-married daughter Sara have all become friendly faces to golfers, residents and anyone else who may have golfed or attended an event at the Oakhurst Golf Club. The long-time Kingwood residents who have owned the club since 2003 will soon become an even more integral part of the Oakhurst at Kingwood community, when they, along with their oldest daughter move into their brand new Highland homes – both of which are appropriately located along the Oakhurst golf course.

David Preisler, was very familiar with Friendswood Development Company, the developers of the Kingwood master-planned community when he purchased the Oakhurst Golf Club soon development on the community began. He said that he was confident in Oakhurst’s bright future and the potential for the golf course and club.

“They (Friendswood Development) just gets it right,” Preisler said. “Oakhurst at Kingwood has everything – a great location, great schools and beautiful homes. And, the developer has done an outstanding job of creating a beautiful community that residents are proud to call home.”

Village Builders’ new NextGen model now open in Oakhurst at Kingwood will offer home shoppers a first-hand look at the builder’s innovative “home within a home” concept as well as one of its many innovative new floor plans now offered in the Kingwood master-planned community.

The appealing elevation of the model and all NextGen homes resemble the classic designs for which Village Builders is known, but inside, these homes offer something very different and innovative.

The front door is just one entrance into the home which also has an offset, separate entrance accessible from the front porch that leads to the NextGen suite.

The camp focused on teaching youngsters the fundamentals of the game while providing older players with a foundation of knowledge as they head into the high school ranks.

“It was a great camp,” said Panther baseball coach Bruce Cox. “We had about 100 kids, give or take a few. It was a great time overall. We had the chance to teach the game of baseball to a lot of kids, which is always a great thing.”
