Hello, everyone. Even though the temperature is starting to climb and the snowbirds are starting to leave, I'm still finding plenty to do in the Sebastian and Fellsmere areas.
A lot of that has to do with how dedicated the local businesses and residents are about making their community a fun and safe place.
A big thanks goes out to the Sebastian Rive Area Chamber of Commerce. The businesses owners that belong to the organization are busy with their day-to-day tasks, but still find time to make Sebastian and the surrounding areas an enjoyable place to live and do business.
One of the things they organize is the concert in the park series at Riverview Park. If you haven't been to one of these, you are really missing out on the talent we have right here. On May 17, the concerts continue with the Atlantic Bluegrass Band. The event is free and starts at 5:30 p.m.
I know I appreciate their efforts, and I'm going to make a point this week to support a business that belongs to the Sebastian Chamber of Commerce. Why don't you do the same?
Just go to their website at www.sebastianchamber.com and look over the long list of members. You're sure to know quite a few, so take a moment to stop by their businesses and thank them for their hard work.
And don't forget, this is the first Saturday of the month, so St. Sebastian Catholic Church is having their flea market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Head on out to look over a variety of different items. While out and about, head over to Riverview Park for the craft show, taking place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This show will offer a great selection of juried handmade crafts and art.
Everyone stay safe, and I'll see you here next week.
