From the NAPC - A special Evening on the Avenues Front Porch this Friday 1/16

The Lake Worth NAPC, Neighborhood Association Presidents' Council, announces a Special Evening on the NAPC Front Porch to honor and show our appreciation to Lake Worth First Responders, PBSO District 14 and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, Stations 91 and 93. The event will take place during the Evening on the Avenue event, Friday, January 16th in the Cultural Plaza in downtown Lake Worth from 6 to 10PM. 

The NAPC “Front Porch” is 10ft by 20ft tent set up at Evening on the Avenues on the first and third Fridays of every month as a place for neighbors and visitors to Lake Worth to relax, play board games and find out about all the Lake Worth Neighborhood Associations. For Friday’s special event, the “Front Porch” will host representatives from PBSO and PBCFR who will share information and answer questions about all the community based services each agency offers our residents. Neighbors will learn how to start a Crime Watch in their own neighborhoods, see demonstrations on life safety techniques like CPR, injury prevention, first aid, fire prevention and much more. As always, fresh popcorn and hot chocolate will also be available.

To honor our First Responders, the NAPC “Front Porch” will be specially lit with blue lights on Friday night. Blue front porch lights will be available for neighbors to take home to show their appreciation as we encourage everyone to light their own front porches in blue for the rest of January. We will offer a Statement of Appreciation to representatives from PBSO and Fire Rescue from the stage at 8:30 pm followed by a special First Responders Appreciation cake, of course lit with blue candles, for everyone in the Plaza to share.

Everyone is most cordially invited to join with the NAPC as we celebrate the great partnerships and effective collaborations we enjoy with our Lake Worth First Responders. Entertainment for this Evening on the Avenue includes the fabulous 80’s tribute band, “On The Roxx” as well as intermission entertainment by the very popular Mel and Vinnie duo who will perform their Lake Worth anthem, “Feels Like Home To Me” as part of our Appreciation Ceremony. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about all the many ways that PBSO and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue stand ready to assist us as we all work together to make Lake Worth the place we can always be proud to call our home.
