last 48 hours part 1

This has to be a 3 part series as last 48 hours have just been full of friends and happenings.  Took well over 200 photos and trying to reduce them,  Trying my best to choose the best representation of what Lake Worth Beach is all about. Pretty much followed what I posted and with the holidays there are always overlapping events.  DSCN3335 DSCN3336   This was at the Compass Community ctr. where they had a Hanukkah/Christmas  ornament making party, with lighting of the menorah Friday evening and Up and early Saturday with  “Breakfast with Santa” at the Mockingbird Garden sponsored by the Order of the Eastern Star LW chapt. 111 .  So many kids were there,  picture of this one group  it is all one family plus some of the usual attendees for the $5 breakfast, kids $3 IMG_4268

Then on to the main event. The BIKE-give-a-way.  This is always an interesting study of faces of anticipation and then the reality for those chosen.  I recall last year one little girl just screamed after it was all over and she did not get a bike, but this year was her year.

very fortunate, two bikes in one family.

 two bikes in one family, what are the odds!

Hard to get a sequence with so many but I managed some before and after. This year many of the kids got boosts up to the stage, short cut to their dream.   DSCN3403 DSCN3404DSCN3405This was an interesting case,  the number was called 3 times then the Mayor turned the number over and read the name.  Asked  I asked the father  what was going on.  He said “wasn’t paying attention”  The child must be there to get the bike DSCN3417 DSCN3416 DSCN3412 DSCN3400 DSCN3448Several were not claimed and went to the next draw. All in All it was a great afternoon;  Next years goal is to increase the bikes to 100 plus with the help of the wonderful sponsors. DSCN3378 To be continued with the Parade  part 2 then the climax at Dave’s
