**MEETING POSTPONED** Special Parrot Cove March Meeting - Lake Worth Playhouse-Speakers State Attorney Aronberg & County Mayor Kerner

Announcement from the Parrot Cove Neighborhood Association:

Please be advised that the Board of Directors of Parrot Cove has opted to postpone the meeting and reschedule our two guest speakers. Given the current concerns surrounding the Corona Virus and recent developments in Florida and here in Palm Beach County (such as the guy who knew he had it and took a flight through PBI anyway), we do not feel there would be strong attendance and many would miss out on hearing from County Mayor Kerner and State Attorney Aronberg.

So for that reason, we feel it best to reschedule when more will be willing to attend.

Vote "YES" on Question #3 - March 17th Election

Discerning shoppers shop at World Thrift: Taste, style, fashion and shoes!

  Wednesday at World Thrift
is Senior Citizens Day in
Lake Worth Beach!

Shoppers at World Thrift want to know,

“What’s the difference between an Anarchist and an Apatharchist?” Find out the answer below.

People are getting confused because Anarchists and Apatharchists look so alike. In fashion there is the Anarch-style and many of those items are For-Sale at World Thrift. But what makes Apatharchists so different is they,

“Don’t give a ■■■■■ ■■■ ■■■■■■■■ about politics any more!”

Basically, the Apatharchist is a former Anarchist who got tired of attending all those meetings all the time and being told what to do. After hours and hours wondering who is snitching on who many former Anarchists come down with a case of “apathy”: an absence of passion, emotion or excitement.

Apathy  +  Passionless Anarchist  =  Apatharchist.

Apatharchists are more concerned about coffee prices at Starbucks, lobbying IKEA to open a store on Dixie Hwy., talking about real estate and wondering what’s the deal with ‘kicks’ when there are so many other styles of shoes for a woman to choose from?

Every Wednesday is Senior Citizen Day at World Thrift in Lake Worth Beach!

The competition is on for best parking spots, the best shopping spots and restaurants too.

The BIG DAYS at World Thrift are Monday (when all the new and really great stuff is out) and Wednesday (Senior Citizen Day). So you’ll want to get in line early on those days.

The hip and cool World Thrift opened up 4½ years ago. And things have never been the same.

World Thrift, if you didn’t know by now, is located at 2425 N. Dixie Hwy in Lake Worth Beach, open Monday–Saturday, 9:00–6:00 and closed on Sunday. Call 561-588-4050 for more information. Use this link to see some of the incredible fashion and garments available for MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

Following your shopping experience pack your stuff in the car and walk across the street for lunch or dinner at Tacos Al Carbon. It’s the new hot spot everybody is raving about in Central PBC and the latest stop on the Taste History Culinary Tour!

As far as all the other Millennials go, not quite enamored with the Anarchist lifestyle. . .

Are you a Millennial Hipster looking for a place that’s “up and coming”? Do you want to stand out? Make yourself noticed? By definition a Hipster is born about 1980, and is attracted to up-and-coming cities: that’s Lake Worth Beach, Florida!

Having World Thrift located here makes all the sense in the world now. The New Times rated World Thrift one of the best thrift stores ever:

[I]t remains the only place in town to score a vintage silk kimono, a $3.99 collection of mint-condition '70s-era teen magazines, a plethora of options for the next ugly Christmas sweater party, and a White House Black Market dress with the tags still on for ten bucks, all in one afternoon.

However, the looming question remains: are Hipsters really hip and why do they all seem to look alike? Or are they really raging non-conformists who have all conformed?

There are other options as well. You can take another path like the Anarchist Millennials:

Look closely at the written instructions on how
and when to empty the poop bucket. And who
knows, you might even catch an Anarchist

musical while you’re in town.

Hymn of the Good Samaritan. A Christian prayer to inspire and teach.*

From every race and land,

The victim of our day,
Abused and hurt by human hands,
Are wounded on lifes way.

The priest and Levite pass
And find not time to wait.
The pressing claims of living call;
They leave them to their fate.

But one of different faith
To care he felt compelled.
His active love like Jesus’ own
Uplifted, healed and held.

May this example lead,
Inspire and teach us all
That we may find in others’ faith. . .

The God on whom we call.

*From The Interfaith Prayer Book (compiled by Ted Brownstein), expanded 2nd edition (2014), p. 69, a “selection of prayers from six religious traditions: Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Bahá’í” [expanded edition includes prayers from native African, native American, Zoroastrian, Taoist, Confucian, Shinto, Jain and Sikh faiths].
