WEEK 34 of 52 WEEKS IN MAGNOLIA, TX…BACK TO SCHOOL 2011

backtoschool Magnolia Independent School District has it’s first day of school:

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011

Believe it, summer is official over.  Texas Tax Free weekend is going on RIGHT NOW!!  But don’t be the parent to deliver your kids on Monday, that would show that your just a little to eager for school to start.  It’s time to fill up those brains with more knowledge, more reading and writing and more communicating with peers in a real world like setting.  It’s time for facebook and twitter to have a time out.  That’s right it’s time to have the youth actually talk to each other face to face…kinda like mom and dad has to do every day at their work.  Work…. you know the application that provides money, money that is spent on food oh, and those fancy phones that can not only read this blog, but re-post it on twenty plus social websites.

I understand the excitement of school from a relocation standpoint.  My family moved from one state to another and I started the school year knowing only one person in my grade.  I am glad to say that we are still friends today.  New town, new home, new subdivision, new friends, new adventures….opportunities are around every corner.  Nobody knows about that fashion flub or that piece of toilet paper that was stuck to your shoe after your visit to the bathroom.  They will just know you for what you have done in the past couple of minutes.  Hopefully your subdivision welcomes you with a gift basket or at least a couple of your neighbors say hello instead of just starring.

So school is starting, have you joined the PTO?  Why not???? Get involved even if it’s just your email address on a mailing list and a donation to the “help the school” fund.  This is your community now and you have the power to make it the best in the nation.  Check out the Neighborhood Watch, the home owners association, the volunteer fire department, Chamber of Commerce, Varsity Football Games, be a band booster.  Get out in your community and re-visit why you moved here in the first place.

School is starting, let the good times roll.  If your new to the area and you would like suggestions on restaurants, dentist, doctor, lawyer, handyman, septic company…anything that would make you feel more comfortable here in Magnolia, Texas please drop me a line at Scott@ScottCulberson.com  As a local REALTOR I know a lot about our community and I would love the opportunity to help you to……

Week 1 52 Weeks in Magnolia, Texas at Visit to Unity Park

Magnolia, Texas is located about thirty miles Northwest of Houston, Texas and is growing at a nice country pace.  Just a couple of miles West of master planned The Woodlands, Texas

.  In 2010 Magnolia opened the first city park in….well…many years.  Partially funded by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it is now open to the public. 

Sometimes you just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world around you.  Take a trip down FM 1488 and take a right on Cloyd Drive, a little further and you’ve made it to Magnolia Unity Park.  Native Texas trees and wildlife have been kept intact so you can enjoy the nature of Magnolia as God intended it.  Your find walking trails, picnic tables, sitting tree benches, nature view areas,  just to get things started.  Thirty acres of fun is waiting for you.  The young ones might enjoy the splash pad,  and playground, while the older ones might enjoy a game of horse shoes, sand volleyball or the skateboard park.  The park has something for everyone, including a huge covered pavilion with a kitchen and bathrooms.  This pavilion can be rented for your next family reunion, just contact the City of Magnolia.  On the back side of the pavilion is an amphitheater, perfect for the sounds of home town talent. I recently visited the park and took some video for you to have a look.  I hope you enjoy.

A Realtors Perspective

This is the first post in what I hope to be a series that will not only continue for this year, but many years to come.  I plan on modeling the content as we travel week by week in the City of Magnolia.  That’s right 52 weeks of Magnolia, Texas.  Your feedback is encouraged.  What would you like to know about this small Texas town that you might call home?  I’ll put my spin on Magnolia and the things that I think you’ll enjoy, but I plan on this series being a blog of the people.  I look forward to you going on this adventure with me and I hope you enjoy the ride. Planned content will range from a written blog, videos, interviews, pictures and anything else I can think of.  This is part of my commitment to creating THE Real Estate Team 4 U.  I am never too busy for your referrals.
