Another official to retire

Judge Walter McMeans, who has served as a county court at law judge for nearly 24 years announced last week he will be retiring.

McMeans was also Mayor of Sugar Land and a vital part of the local community in many capacities through the years.

One by one, the old-timers are passing the sword on down to the youngsters and the face of the county is changing.

Good luck to Walter and his family as they enter a whole new phase in their life.

Convoy of Hope

Sponsors are calling it a “Convoy of Hope” and during this recession it appears that is exactly what it will be for thousands of Fort Bend County families.
Local businesses, churches, and community agencies will unite to bring food and hope to as many as 5,000 children and adults in Fort Bend County later this month.

The Convoy of Hope is partnering with numerous businesses, churches, and community agencies who have donated time and resources to host this community outreach event.

This all-volunteer outreach includes approximately 700 volunteers who will be on hand to unload the Convoy of Hope truck, distribute food, and facilitate all outreach programs on Saturday, November 21, at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds located on Highway 36 in Rosenberg. The site will open at 10:00 A.M. and continue rain or shine until all of the food has been distributed.

Specifically, the carnival-like event will include distribution of 40,000 pounds of food to provide meals to feed thousands of people and will begin with free refreshments, live entertainment, children’s carnival area, medical and dental services, social services, clothing distribution, and haircuts.
