Here we are again, another Monday morning and what a great one it is! perfect weather for cycling and walking. Opportunities to stop and talk to people, my favourite thing!
Another busy week has just hit the dust as this one starts. Tuesday evening was excellent, the start of the REAP (ResidentEducation to Action) course, a five week programme intended to help residents who are interested in improving their neighborhoods and fostering strong links. Guess who was the biggest contingentthere…….? You guessed correctly……LAKE WORTH!Out of the 160 people attending we took up 29 of those places…….all of us with projects for which to bid for the $5,000 grants available. The enthusiasm was contagious and I am pretty sure everyone will win those much needed funds.
Wednesday was spent canvassing for raffle prizes for the Art at the Eco event on December 7. The folks downtown are so generous and have donated a myriad of prizes well worth winning. This event was fabulous last year and it is hoped that this year will be even bigger and better. There is a wonderful team of people working to make this happen……food and wine…decorations….artists….raffles….events…all these things have to be organised and Linda Roman, our chairperson this year, is doing a great job of pulling everyone together and attempting to keep us on track, not an easy task, I can tell you!
Art SpiritAfternoon is always good at the shuffleboard courts, you should drop in sometime on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons! you will be welcomed with open arms and pleasantly surprised at what you find there.
On Friday evening, the Gray Mockingbird Garden tile mural was taken in boxes to be put together for the first time at The Scottish RitesBuilding. It was such hard work but well worth the effort as many of the artists and others came together again for the project. So many friendships were formed during the creation of this work of art, it was truly a community effort! It looks amazing and will look even more amazing when it is finally erected, I cannot wait to see that! a two week project by volunteer members of the Mango Groves NA to this below
Saturday morning was an early start as it was preparation time for the neighbourhood meal, what a great night! In the morning, the last touches were put to the walls at South Shores, tables laid and flowers and greenery picked and displayed, it looked wonderful! Tickets were sold out and South Shores was full, people meeting friends, chatting,
making new friends, listening and dancing to music …… another successful event!
The tree lights have been erected and look very festive as do the lights and displays along the streets downtown, it really is beginning to look a lot like thanksgiving and Christmas once again.
Well, it’s back to another wonderful week here in Lake Worth…..have wonderful one!
