Rebecca Maitland: Golf Cart Drivers for City of Richmond's 175th BD

The City of Richmond's 175th Birthday Celebration will be Sept. 15, 2012, 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.

We will have six or seven golf carts to pick people up from parking lots and drive them to the event, maybe help moms with kids, etc. I believe these golf carts are 5-6 seaters.  If you would be interested in driving a golf cart around downtown Richmond for an hour or two the day of the event, please let me know.  We would greatly appreciate it!

Anne Bulan: casa Christmas Home Tours and FREE summer help

Two weeks ago, ANNE passed out information regarding the 2012 Christmas Home Tours. For more information, visit


Anne also passed out a flyer about free summer help:


"Do YOU want to make a difference in the life of a foster care youth this summer?

Do you have a business in Fort Bend County that you could offer summer employment for youth?


Through a special program, teenagers currently in foster care can work for you this summer - AT NO COST TO YOU! It is so important for our youth to get jobs skills, learn responsibility, and make some money while school is out for the summer. Their earning will be paid for by the HAY Center which provides resources, training, and programming fr youth in foster care.


Some of these youth have worked in attorney's offices, some with lawn services, some as receptionists at car dealerships... and on and on. But there are many youth in Fort Bend County who have yet to find employment.


If you want to make a difference, help a young man or woman, and at no cost, please contact:

Metoyer Martin

Thank you for helping out the kids!"
