before high tech origami
Tropical Ridge at least then gave it a try
n who out performed the other captains even with interference handicaps. Remember no rules. They DJ seem to be the brunt of mischief due to previous imagined grievances as Downtown Jewel brought out not one, not two but 12 very creative origami vessels that outnumbered the field of competitors and took home trophy after trophy.
they performed the Can Can
Tropical Ridge not forgotten RIP
Let me guess it is Parrot Cove

Yesterdays Party was at the Mad Hatter one of my favorite as I love their decor and they also create a work of art reflecting the theme each year. A highly collectible work of art.
a Grand welcome for our own Mayor Pam
Yesterdays creation had colorful Cotton Candy towered with pop corn.They should make them one of the conciliation prizes. Tonight the progressive party continues to Suri on Lake Ave. 6 – 8 p.m. Come see EVERY trophy that’s been returned and T-shirts are for sale and for the first time there are long-sleeved ones but not many.
TOMORROW WILL BE THROW BACK THURSDAY SO STAY TUNED FOR LOTS OF PHOTOS OF THE PAST.
Just love this video, “It’s Summertime” and I try to play it every year to set the mood for a happy summer. Well it has started. The Great American Raft Race is scheduled for our long 4th of July weekend. It is a long one this year. The song was also my inspiration for doing the visuals for the song “Feels Like Home to Me”
a ha, a sneaky look at one of our competitors
It started as a long distance collaboration, I had these awesome photos and Mel and Vinnie had this song . I thought would be a great background just like “In the Summer Time” by Mungo Jerry. So I contacted them up north and said what do you think? Got a why not answer so I went ahead and tried my best to match up words to music. Of course that was way beyond me.
Once Mel and Vinnie returned we sat down, Vinnie with his expert knowledge of music cords and most important timing. A few changes to include other photos like the stills.. The video known as Lake Worth Anthem was created. The music will, and the time, the photos record a time in Lake Worth that has already changed ( one for the history books lol). Lake Worth has passed it’s hundred year mark. The kids in the surfer pix are grown with kids of their own. No more Havana hideout, The lovely garden interior where the neighbors gathered for impromptu dinners is gone, sold. (thanks Paul and Mike) The memories linger. All of us who appear in this are somewhat older, plus some have moved on. The song by our Lake Worth troubadours lives..
