Grandparents, Mammograms, Health Fair, Environmental Hearings
Residents of the Aldine area and the North Houston neighborhoods were kept busy last weekend, and on into this week, with a number of events that mark the end of summer and the beginning of school and family activities.
At Campbell Center, the 16th Annual Grandparents Raising Grandchildren event, also known as the Family Strengthening Conference, was held on Saturday, Sept. 7 with several hundred families attending.
The event started at 10 a.m. with opening remarks by Aldine ISD Assistant Superintendent Abel Garza, Scout Troop 141 presenting colors, and an invocation by Pastor Jamail Johnson. The family counseling roundtable sessions began after that, with topics for raising Children, Teens and Adults. Each session had a discussion leader, Aldine counselors and social workers, and was followed by a Q&A time. The adult Roundtable included State Representative Senfronia Thompson, Family Court Judge Angela Graves-Harrington, Attorney Damiane Curvey Banieh, and Baylor Teen Health Clinician Rosa Acosta.
