atypical weekend in Lake Worth? part 1 of 2

This is part one of two.  Looking for a quiet seaside town? This was an  atypical weekend p1010823

The last several days have been busy busy starting with Thursday Night.  Laid back with an occasional adrenaline rush.  We just had that kind of 4 day weekend.   Aren’t we luckyp1010826!p1010829

We started with the promise of a brighter future.  A presentation extremely well attended at the Casino Beach Complex.  Presenting was our Mayor Pam Triolo and CRA Chair  Cary Sabel below, and guests  presenting a look at  future progress possibilities,  just for our  little  quirky seaside town  and they had a power point showing the demographics of who we are .  As we all exited there was this awesome Car Show which happens on the Second Thursday of each month.  We have lots of car buffs and collectors in Lake Worth.  Spotted from the Casino Balcony were some local enthusiasts. p1010843  p1010840Then for me,  a quick photo of the Thursday Night Peddlers  as they waited for the rest of the Thursday Night Peddlers, who now are back to their Thursday night rides.  They meet at the Gulfstream Hotel and ride through town, open to all  Lake Worth residence  with bicycles.  Must mention this is leisure riding, no spandex.

Then on to the meeting of the Friends of the Lake Worth Library at a local eatery.  They are instrumental in getting the LFL books and are planning an awesome book fair for  2017 .  All in all if you want to get to know the locals, pitch in and have fun this is the place and volunteers are always welcome.  Can’t think of a better way to get to know the locals.  Friday was Veterans Day. img_20161111_104107684
