by Rodney Brooks, Executive Director 

September is often a season of keeping an eye on tropical waves that may develop in the Caribbean. Will the wave develop in to a tropical storm and move closer to the Gulf of Mexico?  This potential threat has also prompted me, as Executive Director of Treemont Independent Living in Houston, to reach out to remind everyone of what we can do and what you can expect should a hurricane head towards the Galveston/Houston area. Like we have all heard before, we run from the water and hide from the wind.  We, "shelter in place" but with the following caveat.

Posted by Lisa Witt on Apr 4, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Join Ellen Korrigan Cunningham Hunt's 105 Year Celebratation, April 10th at 2:30PM

How many Centennial Celebrations have you attended? 105 Year Celebrations? Treemont is pleased to announce that celebrant Ellen Hunt is turning 105 Years Young. We celebrate that Ellen is vibrant and setting a great example for all on aging with grace. Does Ellen look 105 years old? The photo below was taken this week! Ellen has even edited her own biography outlined below. We should all be as alert and engaged as Ellen Hunt is at 105 years of age!

The party will begin at 2:30PM on Friday, April 10th in the Treemont Lobby with cake and punch and the blowing out of the candles. I can't imagine how Food Service Director James Renshaw and Activities Director Aimee Dubuisson get all 105 candles lit in a timely manner! "We may have to notify the fire dept if the candles create too much smoke," says Aimee. Entertainment by pianist Danette MacMahon will begin at 3:30pm.Danette has asked for Ellen's favorite songs so this will make for a fabulous afternoon. Nelda Sims will play between 2:30 - 3:30.  Ellen's daughter Lee  from California will be on hand along with family and church friends. Plus, a Houston Chronicle reporter and photographer will be present to document this signifiant milestone.
