Hello, everyone. This week, with all the events going on, I wanted to take a moment and make sure I recognize as many people as possible for all the hard work they do.
The first shout-out goes to Martin County High School, whose culinary team went up against 55 other teams in the state during the 2013 ProStart Culinary Team Competition in Orlando recently.
At the end of the competition, Martin County High School walked away with a fourth place award for the waiters relay, where teams demonstrated their ability to duplicate a table setting while racing against the clock.
A particular student that deserves big congratulations is Matthew Edwards, who attends The Pine School and is the valedictorian.
He was recently named as a one of the top 24 student athletes in the state of Florida by the Florida High School Athletic Association.
Without naming everyone individually, because it would just be too many to mention, I wanted to congratulate the Hobe Sound Relay for Life on another successful relay. I could tell all the teams were committed to the cause.
I hope to see some of them at the Martin County relay at Memorial Park next week.
But if you want to get a head start on giving to Relay now, head over to Carrabba's Italian Grill in Stuart for dinner on Thursday, April 30. From 5 to 9 p.m., the restaurant will feature a dinner for $12 that will include penne pasta, meatballs, Caesar salad, bread, and a beverage, with the proceeds going to the relay. For tickets, check with a member of a relay team (they're everywhere!) or just call the American Cancer Society at (772) 287-7467.
And if you're thinking Grease is the word, you're right this weekend, as StarStruck Theatre and the TeenStars bring the musical to life with performances at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
These talented students will take us all back to Rydell High School to watch young love bloom, but only for this weekend only, so warm up your hand jive and have fun.
No matter what you decide to do this weekend, have fun and drive safe.
