Miller Outdoor Theater
by Cheryl Adamson

"I love Miller Outdoor Theatre!" We hear that from so many people.

I went to Dance Theatre of Harlem last year. I appreciated the diversity. The performance was beautiful, graceful, phenomenal, and exquisitely done.


I would recommend Miller Outdoor Theatre. It provides summer concerts, musical theatre, and other musical performances in Houston. It is always free. Chairs and lawn seats.

Memorial Day Questionnaire
by the Aphasia Speaks team

We asked the HARC participants about what they like to do on Memorial Day. Here are their answers.

Ackee, a Jamaican Fruit 
by Jon-Michael Cameron

Fruit is closed = POISONOUS

To cook:
1.       Boil - 30 minutes so it opens
2.      Open = NOT poisonous
3.       On the inside you see:
Seed = black; Fruit = yellow
4.       Eat the fruit (yellow part)

Taste - depends on chef and spices

A common Jamaican dish: ackee and salt fish
