Holiday Decorations

Every year our lights and decorations at the median on Snell Isle Blvd. get better and better. This year we received many compliments regarding how beautiful the decorations for the Holiday season were. In fact, we were told, hands down, this year’s displays were the BEST EVER! We are very thankful for all the help assembling the decorations and of course we are also so very thankful for the help we received taking them down.

We wanted to personally thank each and every one of you who gave up part of their Saturday to help, and because each of you gave up part of your Saturday to help remove all the Holiday decorations, we were able to complete the task promptly and efficiently. THANK YOU for your volunteer spirit and your help for both placing and removing them.

As they say, many hands make less work and it surely did! We appreciate your help more than words can express. Here’s hoping each of you have a safe and healthy 2022! Below is a list of all the volunteers who came down Saturday January 8th to help.

Rick Birmingham, Bonnie Hargrett, Howard Pollack, Scott Tielemans, Kristin Bitter, Eric-Paul Von Woerkom, Mary Francis Means, Doug Fisher, Mike Conway, Carol Briam, Wynn & Robert Shapiro, Anne & Kurt Bolin, John Cappa, Alexis Logan & Justin Peterson, Mari Wright

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced today that beginning Monday, March 29th, Sunshine State residents aged 40 and over will be eligible to get the Covid vaccine and one week later, on April 5, every adult, age 18 & older, will be eligible.

Florida would open COVID vaccine eligibility a week later to all people age 18 and over on April 5th.

DeSantis said Florida has already vaccinated 70 percent of the state’s 4.4 million seniors.

"While the Biden administration set a May 1st target date for vaccine eligibility for all adults, Florida is pleased to announce that all adults in the state age 18 and older will be eligible for the vaccine beginning Monday, April 5th," DeSantis said in a news release.

More than 5.2 million of Florida’s over 21 million residents had received at least one coronavirus shot as of early Wednesday. About 13.7 percent of the state's population has been fully vaccinated.

Vaccines are also available at 150 CVS locations, 125 Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations, more than 70 Winn Dixie locations, soon-to-be over 600 Walgreens pharmacies, and every single one of the 730 Publix pharmacies across the state.
