Happy Birthday Lake Worth

posted Jul 9, 2013, 2:42 PM by Tropical Ridge Neighborhood Association

You could tell that this years celebration was extra special the minute you arrived for the gathering of the rafts. If you have ever been to a 4th of July celebration in Lake Worth before you would be able to feel the difference. From the buzzing of electricity in the air, to the laughter and calls of comradeship between the competing teams. This day was special.
Check out the photos of the costumes and rafts in 'photos'.
The crowd that turned out to cheer the teams on as they paraded down Lake Ave turned to follow us down to Bryant Park. They were treated to quite a show - or I should say shows
With a strong headwind going out Tropical Ridge La Goonies put their hearts , lungs, backs and muscles into the job of winning. Unfortunately it wasn't to be, but it wasn't for lack of effort. Thank you La Goonie crew.
Congratulations South Palm Park for winning not only the practice run but also 'the real thing'.
Mango Grove did a fabulous job entertaining the audience to 70's music and dancing (good memories).
Then it was on to the food and family fun.
Of course the evening wound up with a dazzling burst of color, stars and noise. For me it was the best display yet especially as it was the first display my grand children had really enjoyed and boy did they "Ooooo" , "Ahhhhh", and scream happily as they watched the clouds of magic pour down over our heads.
Happy birthday Lake Worth and many more.

Candidate Forum this Monday the 24th Sept

Mango Groves is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with our friends from the Eden Place, College Park and 
Parrot Cove Neighborhood Associations in sponsoring a Candidate Forum on Monday, September 24th. The forum will 
be held at our new polling place, the First Congregational Church, 1415 North K Street from 6 - 9 PM.
Candidates Christopher McVoy and James Stafford are on the November ballot for the District 2 Commission Seat. They 
have agreed to participate and will answer questions submitted by those in attendance at the meeting. No questions will 
be submitted in advance of the meeting. John Szerdi, the unopposed candidate for the District 4 seat will participate by 
making a statement and all Candidates have agreed to remain after the Forum for a Social Hour during which Residents 
will have the opportunity to speak with candidates directly.

Everyone is invited to attend and submit questions for the candidates, but preference will be given to those questions 
from Residents of the four sponsoring Neighborhood Associations in attendance that night. Representatives from each 
of the 4 Neighborhood Associations will select questions from those submitted and may combine duplicate questions or 
eliminate any questions they deem inappropriate. Once again this year, our neighbor, John Paxman has agreed to serve 
as Moderator for the Forum.

Campaign literature, brochures, palm cards, t-shirts etc. are permitted, however no candidate yard signs may be placed 
on Church Property or brought into the Fellowship Hall. This Forum will be conducted with mutual regard for all the 
common courtesies and respect our candidates and neighbors deserve. Neighborhood Associations do not take a 
position and neither endorses nor opposes any candidate. Our mission is to provide the opportunity for Neighbors to 
become well informed on matters of consequence to us all.

ALL Lake Worth voters are eligible to vote for ALL Commission seats, regardless of where they live in the City of Lake 
Worth.  Information regarding the new precincts and new polling places as well as information about absentee and early 
voting in the November General Election will be distributed at the meeting.

After the question and answer period and closing statements from the Candidates for District 2, everyone is invited to 
remain for a social hour at which light refreshments and an array of goodies, generously donated by Kilwin's will be 
served. Many of our local businesses have donated fabulous door prizes and these will be awarded during that time. 
Winners must be present for the drawing to receive a door prize. So please save the date and please feel free to share 
this information with our friends and neighbors all over Lake Worth who may not be on our email distribution list.
