This morning was a special day for many Lake Worthians. They gathered in the Casino Ballroom which was brightly decorated for them, leaving the chill outside. The City of Lake Worth recognized the efforts of the many volunteers, with this volunteer appreciation breakfast. April is the month for the usual recognition, however, we have in our midst snowbirds who also share a vested interest in the well-being of our community.
The value of these Lake Worthians and they are worthy is important for a small community as ours. Giving hundreds of hours of their busy time, they make that time as each realizes their input is important and today were recognized in such a lovely way with this breakfast. During the State of the City Address by our Honorable Mayor Pam, she had put a dollar value on their contribution and it was enormous. Today once more to a full room of volunteers she again gave her heartfelt thanks to everyone present. It was a lovely program with the presentation of the Colors by the ROTC Honor Guard, Vice Mayor Pro Tem Andy Amoroso, Commissioner Herman, Maxwell were in attendance. (Omari was mentioned, however, was not able to attend as he did last year.) The executive assistant Silvina Donaldson, called out all the boards and departments individually. These volunteers are experts in their respected fields, such as attorneys, financiers. artists. grant writers, tourism, administrators, giving from the heart to a community they embraced when they made quirky Lake Worth their home.
