WHAT'S YOUR PICK THIS WEEKEND?
Greetings and welcome to GISH PICKS: A GUIDE TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES, a free weekly e-newsletter/blog I created as a service to the Houston community in 2003 in which I cull from the loads of activities in our city and pick three weekend events (“PICKS”) to recommend to parents, caregivers, and educators all over Houston. I’m a mom and am always looking for cultural – yet FUN! – events for my family and I am so happy to share them with YOU.
My business grows by word of mouth so please enjoy the events and please share this blog. And be sure to tell the organizations you visit that you heard about them from me. And if you’re in Facebooklandia, please sidle over there and like our GISH PICKS Facebook page www.facebook.com/gishpicks and share it with your friends and family and elsewhere on social media, too.

It’s time to start getting organized for summer, so I was happy to have my annual chat about camps this week with Courtney Perna and Debra Duncan on KHOU-TV’s Great Day Houston – see that interview here. And be sure to check out THE SUMMER BOOK® ONLINE: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS, a guide I’ve been producing since 2003. It’s the largest and most accurate online searchable database in Houston and you’re gonna love it when looking for camps! And, best of all, you can surf it from anywhere – while at the beach, when the kids are asleep, while in the carpool line…
Earth Day is coming up next Friday, April 22 but we like to get a jump on it here in Houston so we are celebrating this Saturday, April 16 in Sam Houston Park (Houston’s oldest one!) – click here for all the deets.
In honor of “Houston Compassion Week” (through April 16), my VIDEO PICK is actually two videos that have been created by kids that focus on compassion, called “What would the world be without compassion?” and “Cultural Day.” Enjoy!
