For the entire month of November the Field of Honor was displayed in front of Seminole City Hall. . The Seminole Kiwanis Breakfast Club partnered with the City for this third annual salute to those who have and are serving our Country. What great community patriotism.
It was definitely more exhilarating putting up the flags…but on December 2, they all came down in a very organized and methodical manner. The Mayors Bagel and Coffee stand really hit the spot!

This year’s “Sock it to the Mayor” sock drive was hugely successful with 600 pairs of socks donated by generous citizens of Seminole. Socks have been given to Operation: Military Matters, for The Troops; to PEMHS Mental Health; Seminole Interfaith Food Pantry, and today I dropped off 100 pairs to the Safe Harbor Homeless Shelter.
Two pictures: #1 -The entrance to Safe Harbor off of 49th Street in Largo; and #2- Jewel Murphy, Social Worker at Pinellas Safe Harbor gladly accepting the socks! I have known Jewell for 7 years, ever since I started bringing my USFSP and Eckerd College local government classes there on a class field trips.
Approximately sixty 4th graders, 3 classes, from the Indian Rocks Christian School took over the City Council Chamber on Friday, October 20, 2017! “Good Morning, Mayor,” Firefighter demonstration, Mock Council Meeting was conducted, group picture, Deputy visit, a c o o l fire engine and much more filled a 2-hour event! Great group of students, inquisitive and polite - thanks to Teacher Michelle DiFrancisco, and other teachers and parents!
