“We have ‘family steakhouse night’ at home about once a week,” says Peter Mollett, owner of Smokin’ Texas Gourmet in Keller. “Part of our motto is ‘making homemade happen.’ We want people to be able to create restaurant quality food at home that’s simple.” At his Keller store, customers can pick up spice rubs, seasonings, sauces and everything needed for grilling this summer, along with crucial tips and advice.

Education Equation

This year’s “Rooted 2017 Gala” raised over $200,000 for the Keller ISD Education Foundation. Held at Marriott Champions Circle on Saturday, April 1, over 350 guests enjoyed dinner, live and silent auctions, and a wine pull. District teachers of the year were recognized and the Timber Creek High School Jazz Band delighted guests. Money raised helps the foundation provide the district with educational grants and equipment purchases not possible within the budget.

The K-List

Eight-year-old Connor Genteman loves cars. And just like any car aficionado, Connor loves car shows — Down syndrome doesn’t hold him back. So when Connor’s parents, Ty and Lydia, wanted to raise both awareness of Down syndrome and the need for inclusion of special needs children, they thought of nothing better than hosting a car show. Proceeds from the 4th annual Connors Car Show, to be held Saturday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Keller Town Hall will benefit three worthwhile organizations serving children with special needs: Down Syndrome Partnership, Cook Children’s Medical Center and White Bridle Therapeutic Partnership. Last year, $52,000 was raised and 500 cars were on display. This year, 700 car entries are expected. Additionally, weekly cable television show “The Car Guy Show” will be in town, filming the event.

Part of the family

True dog lovers see our furry companions as more than just house pets. Call us crazy, but we see our beloved pups as family members who deserve to be included in family photos for holiday cards, taken on vacation and brought along to hang out on the sidelines at our kids’ soccer games.
