A Message from Commissioner Sheehan
I hope everyone will be able to attend the Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, November 9th beginning at 11 AM. The parade will go (S) down Orange Ave. (starting at Robinson St.) to (E) on Central Blvd. to (N) on Rosalind Ave. (ending at Livingston St.)
Let me also tell you about two exciting events coming up in Orlando that will change the face (especially at night) of Orlando. The first being that the Tower of Light that will have an Unveiling on (Tuesday) 11/12 at 6 PM. The Tower of Light is on the corner of Orange Ave & South St. The tower has been restored and will be even more amazing than when it was first lit. The tower will now have multiple colors of lights that it will rotate through and has new lighting at the base. (The Tower of Light is located in front of City Hall, but off to the side on the corner of the above mentioned streets.)
The second big announcement is the much anticipated opening of See Art Orlando which will present Sculpting the Future of Downtown. This is the Unveiling of Orlando's permanent contemporary sculpture collection. The Official ceremony will be at the Seaside Bank Plaza located at 201 S. Orange Ave on Monday, 11/18 at 5:30 PM. More information can be found at www.seeartorlando.com
November is a great time of the year here in Florida. Itís also the time to catch your breath before the mad rush of the holidays begins. Itís the time to sit back and enjoy the little things in life and also the first hint of a break from the heat and humidity of our long hot summers. November is traditionally a time of Thanksgiving Ė which by definition means an expression of gratitude. With that in mind, some of things that Iím personally thankful for include good health, great pets, loving and caring friends, a wonderful job as a public servant and so many other things in life. I encourage everyone to take the time to sit back and be thankful for all of the things that we each take for granted each and every day. Dwell not on what you donít have or what you canít do, but instead be truly thankful for what blessings you do have in your life right now.
Have a wonderful November and enjoy the slightly cooler weather!
