Volunteer recognition

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. 

oh, baby, it’s cold outside

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.

Winners Casino Beach

Last Tuesday at City Hall,  a wonderful announcement was made recognizing Lake Worth in a very  positive way.  For the 2nd year in a row our Leisure Service dept. /Casino Ballroom staff has received an award for the work they have accomplished in short time.  Having been fortunate to witness several weddings ( I spend a lot of time at the beach a lot aka mermaid) this is what it what it looks like as a spectator out at the Lake Worth Beach, quite exciting.  The award came from Couples Choice and Wedding Wire where future brides  and their mothers investigate Beach weddings, tropical weddings, ocean view weddings, island weddings.  Yet don’t have to pay the price to go to an island. Everyone loves to share in happiness and looking at the beautiful brides and their wedding party all dressed up.  Kudos  to the staff, for bringing in these weddings,  its difficult as it is, it  would have been easier if we had a hotel venue. Then again no so easy when the bride is One a half hours late. 

This was one of the review I read.   “The moment we walked into this venue, we knew it was the one for us. It was the only one we actually went to see, and we booked it right away. This venue is breathtaking and right on the beach. You will not get a better price for a beach wedding! We did our ceremony in the courtyard and it was absolutely beautiful.
