The NAPC’s 4th Annual Thanksgiving Banquet & Food Drive last Saturday, on 2nd thought. . .

Had plans for a write-up this morning about this wonderful event and then discovered someone had done that already (see below). Thank you everyone for attending and supporting our Neighborhood Assoc. Presidents Council (NAPC) and all the neighborhood associations here in the little City of Lake Worth!

On the stage at CJ’s: NAPC President Jon Faust and the ubiquitous Mary Lindsey.

“Big Big Thank You to everyone who helped make the 4th Annual NAPC Thanksgiving Banquet another fabulous community event! First of all to Bryan and Karine, Chef Andre and all the staff at CJ’s Island Grill. No feast was ever finer and no crowd of people ever felt more welcome than we did.
     To Andy Amoroso, who couldn’t attend because he is out of town tending to our City’s business, for selling tickets at his newsstand; to The Lake Worth Herald, Mark and Judy Easton for their generous contributions to our door prizes, likewise the Lake Worth Golf Course, Downtown Jewel Neighborhood Association who donated two Flolfing tickets, the NAPC Front Porch and the amazing Mel and Vinnie for the CDs and for leading us all in a sing along to ‘Feels Like Home To Me’. 
     To the LW Little Free Libraries for donating the LFL totebags and to Jon Faust for emcee excellence; to Marc Pickering and Marshall Pass for selling 50/50 raffle tickets, and to the NAPC for donating a copy of the Cottages book and 7 bottles of champagne for door prizes; to Publix bakery which went way overboard in baking and decorating our wonderful dessert cakes.
     To Meredith Abrams and her first grade class at North Grade who dropped off 4 huge bags of canned goods to get us started on our food drive and to everyone who brought canned goods and participated in the raffle to help fund even more food and to everyone who helped carry it out and load it into the truck. Happy Thanksgiving!”
