Do you live in Greenacres? Get your community news in The Lake Worth Herald.

This week’s Herald has another article about Greenacres titled, “Two City of Greenacres Employees Pay It Forward”. Here’s an excerpt:

     The two Greenacres city employees [Greenacres building inspectors] had gotten to know a man named Allen, as he rode his bike everywhere around the city.
     Allen’s bike was recently stolen leaving him without his joy of riding around Greenacres. Hearing of his plight, these two, kindhearted employees, Wayne and George, decided to pay it forward by presenting Allen with a new bike.
     Wayne and George reached into their own pockets and purchased a new bike for Allen. On Monday they presented him with a brand new bike. 

And did you know the City of Greenacres has an election coming up next March? It’s true. Read more about that below.

Check out the new website for The Lake Worth Herald and Coastal/Greenacres Observer.

Interestingly, the City of Greenacres and the City of Lake Worth both have the same reporter from The Palm Beach Post but you would be hard pressed finding any news about Greenacres in that newspaper. But almost every week in the Herald you’ll find community news about our friends in Greenacres. What gives?

The Post’s slogan is, “Real News Starts Here”. So the “Real News” only happens in Lake Worth? Anyhow, if you live in Greenacres did you know you have an election coming up next March 14th? Here’s more news from the Herald:
