News from the City of Greenacres in The Lake Worth Herald: “2017 Educational Scholarship Program”.

First, do you remember the last time you read any news in The Palm Beach Post about a Greenacres City Commission meeting? And did you know Greenacres also has elections coming up on March 14th?

The City of Greenacres is part of “flyover County”. Even though Greenacres and the City of Lake Worth share the same Post reporter Lake Worth gets almost all the attention in print (if it’s something crime- or traffic-related every now and then you’ll see news about Greenacres in the Post).
