Hello neighbors

Two things happened this week that make having good neighbors important, sometimes critical.  One of my neighbors was reported,  a missing person* five days.   The other is about how we view ourselves.  Royal Poinciana was fortunate to have their street clean-up this past Saturday.. The street selected this time was south C st. including the alley between C and D.   Just midweek  a company hired by our city to cut the grass in the alley way, did. .  What they do not do is remove the large debris.  That was left to us as you can see Sarah Parr Malega and President Kenia Valdez removing the left over stuff that the company does not deal with.  Having Nick Petrino assist with his crew was just awesome and much appreciated. .

The combined effort yielded 10 truck loads of stuff.  Mind you we are not allowed to go onto property to remove the offending beer cans, plastic bags.  There are still eye sores and the City is still overwhelmed.  The City of Lake Worth  has been doing a tremendous job of vegetation removal. ( Been watching the 21 ft high 2 acres of vegetation getting under control up in Sunset Ridge. ) Still needed is a cleaning of the storm drains, as this neighborhood also floods. We did not have the right tool which SWA provided us..  Neighborhood  participation has great value.  In cleaning we met two new homebuyers, both with teenage children.   *  One of our RP disappeared for 5 days.  Who knew?  This can happen to any one of our elderly. He went down the road  for a bite and fainted.  No one knew who he was there, he ended up in hospital.  Unbeknown to us all his animals left to fend for themselves indoors.  Till PBSO put two and two together he was identified.  So know your neighbors at least in your block.
