Lady Lake Chamber business luncheon was a success. It is a success any time you get a group of business people together to discuss business. This luncheon was held at Eaton Beach right on the lake front. Janet Fraley was running around making everything ready and of course Jeannie was there helping. Leslie was at her Fall Conference. I had a window seat the best of two worlds. Look out at the lake, enjoy business people and taking pictures. Lot’s of door prizes were given out. It was a perfect day. The Chamber has a luncheon’s almost every month so watch for them and attend.

We want to extend a huge thank you to all the businesses that participated in our 8th annual business-to-business expo! We appreciate your support and dedication to making this event a success. We strive to make each event we host valuable to those who participate, and we are delighted to hear that you found it valuable as well.

We understand that some businesses were disappointed not to win a door prize, even though they provided one. To minimize this, we are implementing a new rule for next year’s event. Only one representative from each business that provides a door prize will be eligible to win a door prize. We hope this new rule will help ensure that everyone has a fair chance to win.

We also want to express our gratitude to all of the volunteers who generously donated their time and energy to make this event possible. Without your help, we could not have achieved such a successful event.

Once again, thank you for participating in our expo. We look forward to seeing you all again next year and making the event even better!

Lake County, Fla. (September 12, 2023) —Today, the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) Task Force released the results of Operation Safe Kids, a strategic initiative in 42 Florida counties that called attention to traffic safety in and around schools to ensure that children had a safe return to school from Summer Break. During the Task Force Operation Safe Kids, Florida’s sheriffs issued 7,218 warnings and 5,171 traffic citations, dedicated 5,900 hours during the enforcement period, delivered 5,520 educational messages and posted 80,674 social media messages throughout the state.

As part of its “School Supplies for Fines” program, the Lady Lake Library donated over 100 pounds of backpacks, notebooks, pencils and more to The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake. In exchange for donations from the community, nearly $500 in library fines were forgiven. This program, held for the first time this year, is a great way for patrons to pay off fines while giving back to the community.

“The ‘School Supplies for Fines’ program not only helps our library patrons manage their outstanding fines, but also provides valuable resources for students who might not have access to necessary school supplies,” said Lady Lake Library Director Aly Herman. “The community impact of such a program is undoubtedly significant.”

The Town of Lady Lake plans to make this program an annual event.
