Gasparilla 2018

Gasparilla seems to have gone off without a hitch…or should I say without a major hitch! In fact, according to Tampa PD the arrest numbers were low!
Our islands were a buzz with invasion parties and boat watchers.  I have heard from a few restaurant owners and they were packed too.
If you are interested in cleaning up beads from our waterways and surrounding green spaces, learn about Green Gasparilla!
The pirate fest continues with the Sant’ Yago Knight Parade and the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic. Are you running this year?
Green Gasparilla: February 3- 9am

Sant’ Yago Knight Parade :  

February 10 – 7:00 pm
Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic: February 24-25 – 5K, 8K, 15K and Half Marathon – Please see website for start times!

Book of the Month

Each January I like to start the year reading one of my favorite books “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.  I am sure you have either heard or read this book at some time in your life and for me it is one of the original sources for which ALL success books originated.  The essence of this book truly brings to life the reality of how humans can achieve greatness and success in whatever they truly desire.
If you have never read this book or it has been years since you have read it, I encourage you to acquire a copy.  Within the first chapter you will not only feel reinvigorated to accomplishing your goals, but most importantly reprogram how you might think about success and achievement.
