like Christmas almost. What an auspicious day it was let me just start with this little video
As I start with this, the post will be going backwards. The Thursday Night Peddlers now riding on Wednesday carolers made it to McMow Art Glass on 701 n Dixie having ridden though Tropical Ridge, Sunset Ridge all along the route to the cheers fr cars and pedestrians along the way. Phil Matero welcomed the large group with Hot Chocolate, cookies. The riders under the direction of Mel and Vinnie sang 10 songs and then got a very special tour of the behind the scene professional stain-glass work shop by Shannon. The peddlers also visited an ongoing class who also enjoyed the cheerful interruption.
and of course the Lake Worth Anthem “Feels like home to me” was the finale which resonated with the Materos as it is a family owned business and has been here in Lake Worth for ever.
We in this quirky little beach side town give in many ways. As we see below with PBSO and while the Carolers where in one place, others were downtown at Calero’s Steak House cheering on one of our young women.
Lake Worth has proven itself once again to be the Little City with Big Heart. Lexi Sachlis, a young local was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Two of her friends, Linnea Rickard and Rachael Tanner worked hard for two months putting together an amazing fundraiser to help with Lexi’s medical bills. Linnea and Racheal spread the word through Lake Worth and received over 50 items donated for the cause. Donors included: Callero’s Steak House, The rum Shack, Dave’s Last Resort, Paws On The Avenue, and much, much more. Well attended. Family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and even some of our wonderful Commissioners (Scott Maxwell, Ryan Maier, and Andy Amoroso) were there to cheer Lexi on. It was a perfect way to let Lexi know that Lake Worth supports her in every way. There were many more donors and I could not get everyones names. Pretty much every store downtown donated in a huge way. Close to 3 K was raised, it is appreciated and from my personal knowledge it is but a drop in the bucket
Not to be forgotten the morning started well,. Gift wrapping the many gifts at the District 14 office of PBSO There were many familiar faces all pitching in (not all seen here) and to tell the truth we did such a good job. They thought it would need two days, we Santa’s efficient elfs made short shrift of the job and it is done. yeah Thank You all the volunteers.
