Annual Holiday Lighting Celebration and Honoring Heroes in our Community
The Holidays are right around the corner and there is so much to celebrate in the City! I would like to invite you to attend our annual Holiday Lighting Celebration tomorrow, Friday, December 7 from 6:00pm-10:00pm. This event will take place at 1750 East Hallandale Beach Boulevard and will feature amusement rides, activities for the whole family, food, community performances, a visit with Santa, and of course, the holiday lighting display. I hope to see you there!
I would like to take a moment to share a story with you about heroes in our community. On Thanksgiving Day, a vehicle in the parking lot of Gulfstream Park caught fire, with the driver still inside. Upon seeing this, Gulfstream Park security guards immediately rushed to the scene and worked tirelessly to break a window and rescue the driver of the vehicle before the fire spread. The heroic Security Officers are Felix Ramos, Pele Cine, Charles Johnson, James Stipes, and Xavier Figueroa. These men truly saved a life. Gulfstream Park held its first race of the season last Saturday and our Fire Department awarded these deserving men for their bravery by presenting them with the City’s “Heroism in the Community” Award. I too would like to thank these heroes for their selflessness.
The Department of Public Works does a wonderful job of keeping our City clean. Let’s lend them a hand by properly managing our bulk and yard waste! Residents of the City no longer need to call the City’s Sanitation Department to have bulk trash and yard waste picked up. This service is now being offered monthly! Each section of the City is collected on a specific week of the month, as follows: Week 1- Southwest, Week 2-Southeast, Week 3-Northwest and Week 4-Northeast. Visit cohb.org/keepHBclean for more information.
In closing, I would like to thank Chabad of South Broward for inviting us to the 39th Annual South Florida Chanukah Festival. I wish all a Happy Holiday and Happy Chanukah. As always, please feel free to reach me at 954-457-1318, I look forward to hearing from you.
