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.
I moved to Kingwood in September of 1993 – the month the Lake Houston Family YMCA first opened its doors. Nearly seventeen years later, the YMCA in Kingwood is looking new again. On May 13, I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony marking the facility’s $5 million expansion project and was amazed at the results.
The host of the event was Jenna Dhayer, the YMCA’s executive director. She welcomed the members of the business community and the YMCA board and saying: “So many of you have been involved in this project for so many years. From the bottom of my heart, and my staff’s heart, we really appreciate your support.”
Dhayer recognized Keller Williams Realty Northeast Co-Owner Mark Heinrich for more than 20 years of volunteer efforts for the YMCA. She noted that he has been involved in all three capital campaigns, served on the board for 12 years and was named Volunteer of the Year.
