Heights Happenings: September 5- September 12, 2012

This is the same thing that happened last year. I took my kids away on summer vacation and had a heck of a time getting back in the swing. I missed last week but trust you were all able to find something fun to do, even without my help. I am excited to share some cool neighborhood stuff with you, so I'm forcing myself back behind the laptop and off we go...

Saturday, September 8, Noon to 4 pm: Second Saturdays Craftacular is back! 
  • In front of Hello-Lucky on Studewood, you’ll find lots of new goodies by local crafters, artists, and designers. Everything is hand crafted, local and spectacular.
  • Katherine Adams of Therein is the Artist Coordinator for this month.
  • 1025 Studewood

Saturday, September 8, 5 pm- 7 pm: Houston Heights Woman’s Club Clubhouse Centennial Celebration
  • In 1912, the women of the Houston Heights Woman’s Club borrowed $1,200 to build a clubhouse on land donated by Mrs. D.D. Cooley. The building at 1846 Harvard was completed in September, 1912. This September marks the Centennial birthday of the Clubhouse and all the many HHWC events which took place within its walls. 
  • This event marks the final party in the HHWC’s year-long celebration of clubhouse history. The Centennial Committee has planned an enjoyable evening for friends and neighbors, with light food and refreshments. Please join the HHWC to wish a Happy 100th Birthday to the Clubhouse, a Heights treasure and piece of Texas history.

Friday, September 14, 6:30 pm - 9 pm: ROASTED: Unlicensed Sexually Oriented Businesses

Roasted will also act as a launch pad for those who desire not to simply hear statistics, but to also take action. Through presentations, interactive technology, and conversing with others who share the same passion, guests will become more informed and empowered to generate change in their own homes and communities.

Fall Is Upon Us
  • I know. It doesn’t feel like it, but it is indeed time to turn our minds to fall, at least in the garden. Wondering what your seasonal undertakings should be? Check out Buchanan’s Native Plants’ Houston Gardening By The Month page. Apparently we are in the midst of hummingbird migration! How exciting! They know it’s fall, even if we don’t.

Doing Good In The Heights
  • Heights Interfaith Ministries Food Pantry continues to supply food and other necessities to local families in need. They have been working on being more active on Facebook and need your support. Please LIKE the HIM Food Pantry page and stay aware of their work and their volunteer/donation needs.
