HAAM hosts the 2013 Pillars of the Community

Residents from around the community will be recognized for their dedication and hard work at the fourth annual Humble Area Assistance Ministries’ Pillars of the Community: Celebrating Hands and Hearts of Lake Houston.

The event will be held Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Kingwood Country Club where they will recognize veteran HAAM volunteers, the Kingwood Women’s Club and Bonnie Longnion.

Longnion will be honored for her service to the community as a longtime Humble Independent School District board of trustees. For the past 25 years, Longnion has served as a board member on the Humble ISD board of trustees.

It was through the board where Longnion had the opportunity to volunteer for numerous organizations in the community. Longnion retired from Lone Star College as an administrator and serves as a part-time adjunct instructor for the University of Houston Downtown.

The 2013 presenters are Philippe and Mieke Cras, Tony and Leslie Raffa and Larry and Cynthia Shiflet who were all recognized as Pillars of the Community at last year’s event.

This annual recognition event will also have silent auction items and door prize drawings.

The City of Humble Office of Emergency Management will be hosting C.E.R.T. training beginning Sept. 17 and ending Nov 5.

CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and the CERT mantra: Do the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency situations where citizens initially will be on their own and their actions can make a difference. Citizens can be trained to manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.

Emergency responders are quickly over whelmed during an emergency. CERT will train the average citizen to take care of themselves, families and neighbors until help can arrive.

She was one of the first kids in line to get the chance to shave the heads of Houston’s Dynamo soccer players.

Kingwood resident Kristina Barrett anxiously rubbed her hands together until they said it was her chance to take the razor into her hand and give an extreme haircut to a few of the players at The Dogwood Aug. 13; all for a good cause.

For the past three years, Kristina has had the chance to join several other children with cancer to shave the heads of Dynamo players all benefiting the Curing Children’s Cancer Fund.

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.

The first annual Antique Center of Texas Antique Fishing Tackle Collectors Show will be held in a special section of the center on Aug. 9, 10 and 11, expecting to draw fishing tackle fanciers from all over the Southwestern United States.

Antique Center owner Phil Thompson, himself an ardent collector, said the show will offer a unique opportunity to display, buy, sell and trade antique rods, reels, lures and advertising – the rare and unusual collectibles of members of the National Fishing Lure Collectors Club (NFLCC).

“We’re expecting NFLCC members from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico and who knows where else,” said Thompson, who plans to bring in his own personal collection for display at the show site, which is a newly crafted special events section of Antique Center.
