The music at the first of four Keller Williams Summer Nights at the Harbor concerts was a flashback to the ‘50s. Wayne King entertained the crowd last Thursday at Kings Harbor with songs by Roy Orbison, Frank Sinatra and assorted ’50s “Doo-Wop” artists.

Keller Williams Gives Back at RED Day Event

Last Thursday, May 13 was a designated RED (renew, energize and donate) Day by Keller Williams Reatly International. RED Day was an opportunity for Keller Williams associates to improve their local communities through participating in service projects.

More than 70 Keller Williams associates from three Houston area offices spent RED Day volunteering at The Arrow Retreat Center in Porter, TX. The group from Keller Williams Northeast, The Woodlands and Professionals power washed cabins, painted buildings and prayer benches, and sealed the wooden pier over a fish pond – all to get the retreat ready for the summer.

The retreat is operated by Arrow Child & Family Ministries. The Christian organization helps place children in foster care and strengthen their bonds with their foster families. Arrow was founded in 1992 in Austin, TX, by a former foster child Mark Tennant.

Humble ISD School Board Election Takes Place Saturday

After seven days of early voting, only 146 votes have been cast in the Humble ISD School Board election, according to Peggy Young, Humble ISD executive secretary.

Keller Williams Spring Break Concert Slated For March 19

Keller Williams Realty Northeast welcomes back the popular 5th Avenue Band to Kings Harbor for a free Spring Break concert on Friday, March 19 from 7-10 p.m.

April Showers Bring Appliance Rebates

If you are thinking of buying a new appliance, you may want to wait until April. That’s when Texans will be eligible for $23 million in federal rebates on purchases of energy-efficient appliances.

The rebates are part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the same government stimulus program that instituted Cash for Clunkers, which offered rebates for trading in old cars.
