half way thru the weekend

Could anyone have been any busier than the Lake Worthy-ens.  What a great town to be in, it’s a place with a sense of well-being and camaraderie.  Just minutes away SunFest took place in West Palm Beach but here, we had our *mojo going.  The Mail-Art opening  was well received and brought out visitors many who had no idea we had a Historical Museum.  On display embelished envelopes wishing us well for the centennial.DSCN9005 Friday morning started with National Day of Prayer put on by our Mayor,  at the Beach Casino Complex.  With a surprise stunning rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah by Pitch Perfect of Sacred Heart.  A standing ovation followed that performance.  DSCN9057 Friday night continued to be special.  Wes Blackman presented a wonderful historic view of Lake Worth THEN AND NOW in the Library Annex to an appreciative crowd.DSCN9148The Cultural Plaza enjoyed great music with a record number of people visiting the ever popular Front Porch.  The T-shirts have arrived, it is the fundraiser for the upcoming July 4, Grung Cup Race.  Made of light weight cotton, so it is wearable in our Florida heat. It has this great design of Washington crossing the Delaware a fit tribute to the event. DSCN9159 The Scrabble games were again a hit.  The youngest player held her own with a play that landed the Z on the triple space right after, her opponent played qi qi, with the q also landing on a triple space.   Lake Worth Critical Mass is growing and they made two passes of the cultural plaza for everyone to enjoy.   Lake Worth Critical Mass elicited hoots of approval by the onlookers downtown. DSCN9139

Yesterday Saturday was the much-anticipated Bryant Park Fundraiser at our local hang out South Shores Tavern.  It has to be the most fun interactive fundraiser of any of the Lake Worth neighborhoods, (no disrespect to Downtown Jewel’s Flofling.)  Derby Day was a lot of a mutual admiration.  Prizes for Best Chapeau, most colorful men’s Shirt.DSCN9174 DSCN9176DSCN9200 DSCN9196

DSCN9244A good time was had by all, the little rain didn’t dampen anyones spirit.  I left, leaving these three couples dancing in rain.                                                                                          Today Sunday and Cinco De Mayo join the festivities at the Taco Lady   on L Street.       *from Mirriam Webster  a power that may seem magical and that allows someone to be very effective, successful
