I can't help but notice the large number of people in our community that deserve a little recognition for their accomplishments.
I wanted to focus a little bit on those people this week, because they deserve just as much recognition.
This week, I want to congratulate a couple who gave of themselves for their love of animals. Robert and Margaret Hanlon of Fort Pierce have become one of the first people in the area to take advantage of a naming opportunity from the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.
They have chosen to name a special shelter area being built as part of the shelter under construction on Glades Cut-Off Road in Port St. Lucie.
The inscription they will place in the area reads "In memory and honor of our beloved pets and all of the other 'critters' that enriched our lives."
Let me be one of the first to thank them for their generosity, and remind them that by doing this small thing, they are enriching our lives by making the community we live in a better place.
This is also a friendly reminder that the Jazz on Moores Creek is still going on, and will take place on April 19. This month will feature Vernesha Swoope and the Amour Band.
Lincoln Park Main Street is another example of a group of volunteers who have worked tirelessly to support and promote the Lincoln Park area. They have done wonderful things in such a short time, and I look forward to everything they will be offering the Fort Pierce community in the future.
