With the cool mornings we’ve had over the last few days it’s a reminder that fall is not far away. With every fall comes the start of another school year and Wed., Sept. 4 Florida schools begin the 2019/2020 school year. Please give yourself some extra time and drive carefully through the Village as children will be walking and buses will be driving throughout the community picking up students.
Another thing you might notice as you drive through Main St. is we have several new businesses open and more on the way! They vary from restaurants, barbers and a sports consignment to name a few. Our small businesses are part of what gives Florida that small town America feel. If you agree and want to see Main St. continue to flourish I urge everyone to shop and eat local, it makes a difference!
