The month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. If you’ve never been to one of Family Time’s candlelight vigils where they honor and remember those who were killed in Texas due to domestic violence, it is a solemn occasion as they read out all the names of victims. But it is also always followed by a celebration of hope as community members gather and meet the staff and volunteers at the open house. This year, the vigil will be held Oct.19 at their Humble office and Family Time would like to invite the whole community to attend. This year's 6th Annual Purple Ribbon Luncheon, co-chaired by Kathy Adkins and Linda Prator, will be held Friday, Oct.14, at the Kingwood Country Club, so don’t forget to get your tickets.
