We had quite a nasty storm pass through the Village! I saw several trees were blown down and some properties took some damage as well. I hope that everyone stayed safe and will be able to repair the damage done by the weather system.
Memorial Day is right around the corner; I want to remind everyone that on Mon., May 28 at 2 p.m. we will have our Memorial Day parade and ceremony. Line-up begins at 1:30 p.m. After the ceremony everyone is invited to the Florida firehouse for refreshments.
Memorial Day is an important day to reflect, remember and honor those service members who have fallen in service to our Nation, ensuring that we, as Americans, are able to live and work in peace.
