I would like to invite everyone to attend Palmetto Bay’s State of the Village on Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m. The State of the Village is so much more than a speech on Village operations. It is a celebration of our Village’s dedicated founders who first envisioned an independent municipality and then toiled to achieve incorporation in 2002. It is also a celebration the dedicated parents, teachers, business leaders, service men and women, volunteers, and all others who strive every day to make this community such an exceptional place. The State of the Village in Palmetto Bay truly is the definition of community.
Consider this my personal invitation for you to come out to Village Hall and mingle with your the Village Council, staff, distinguished guests and fellow residents as we enjoy catered appetizers, music — and remember all the wonderful reasons why we call Palmetto Bay home.
The free event starts with a reception at 6 p.m. outside the Palmetto Bay Municipal Center, 9705 E. Hibiscus St. , in Palmetto Bay. The address begins at 7 p.m. and the evening concludes with dessert and coffee on the promenade.
Mayor Eugene Flinn
