Come On In, The Water’s Fine

June 3, 2010

Lake Worth’s pool by the beach will be reopening Saturday, June 5th.

All of the work to get the pool back up and running was done entirely “in house” by the utilities and public service departments.  And it was done 20,000.00 under the original estimate.

And he’ll eat for a day.  Teach a man to fish, and he’ll want to go to the Second Annual City of Lake Worth Fishing Tournament.

Deanna marched up to the statue outside the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery and placed Barbie in this strategic position.  We were downtown this afternoon;  stopping at several local businesses to eat lunch, have drinks and enjoy ice cream.

After having our fill, we walked down to Bryant Park to find all of the construction fences have been removed and the entire park is finally open.

The parking lot in the south end of the park appears only to need the stripes painted on the blacktop to be complete.

The new seawall is a great place to catch the breeze off the waterway.

It’s wonderful to be able to use the whole park again and we look forward to the new play structure, landscaping and benches.

Shady Characters

Tom’s Page was unable to make it to the 3rd Annual Shade Tree Giveaway this past Saturday but we caught up with the Tree Board’s Chair, Gael Silverblatt who passed along these photos.  Gael told us that just about every single one of the 400 trees were given away and after entering the names of the recipients in her database she found that nearly 50% of them were new to the giveaway.  It looks like a lot of this years trees will be spread out in new yards across the city.

Gael added that the event went off very smoothly thanks to the work of the board members, volunteers and city staff and wanted to thank them all:

Vicki, Josette, Martha, Erica, Steve, the volunteers Howard, Walter, Steven, Lynda, Audrey, Ashleigh, Donna, Rafael, Pete, Cary, Debra, Sophie, David McGrew, Grounds Maintenance Supervisor and Martin Cybulski, City Horticulturist.

Thanks Gael for all your hard work and dedication.
