I was thrilled to attend last week’s ribbon cutting ceremony for I Love Mi Casa Realty. Welcome to the Hallandale Beach community! We have seen many local businesses open over the past few months. Are you interested in opening a small business? Do you want to see what businesses are in Hallandale Beach and the surrounding area? The Halladale Beach Chamber of Commerce has all this information and much more. The Chamber of Commerce aims to foster new growth and continued investment in our City. Membership is available and entitles your business to many benefits including discounted print/electronic advertising and networking events. Check out the Chamber of Commerce website for more information: HallandaleBeachChamber.org.
Our Police Athletic League (PAL) hosted its inaugural Flea Market this past Saturday at the Cultural Center. It featured over 30 vendors and was free of charge. This first-time event was a great success and it was wonderful to see so many members of the community shopping the wide selection of antiques and collectables. Johnathon Carrillo, our PAL Program Coordinator, consistently does an incredible job putting on events such as this to raise money for our programs.
We will be bringing forth our Student of the Month awards once again! Each month we will be recognizing students from Gulfstream Academy and Hallandale High School that work to better themselves and those around them. Awards will be given in a monthly basis at the City Commission Chambers during regular meetings. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for updates.
Finally, I hope that you join us at the 2019 Senior Championships. This event is put on by our Parks Department and is a huge hit every year. Register at any City Park Facility before February 25th to participate. The Senior Championships will run from March 4-March 8 and features a wide variety of recreational games and activities for men and women over 50 years of age. Come show us what you’ve got and sign up today!
We have so much going on in our City and there are many ways to stay engaged! I hope to see you out and about and as always, please feel free to reach me at 954-457-1318. #HBHere4U
