The Concerned Citizens of Cutler Bay, a civic organization, at their meeting on Tuesday, April 1, presented plaques of appreciation to representatives of Miami- Dade Fire Rescue, Captain Vaughn Mulder of Station 34, Lieutenant Charles Sanders of Station 55. Both stations are in the boundaries of Cutler Bay. In making the presentation, Steve Zarzecki said “The Concerned Citizens don’t take it for granted that our Fire Rescue Department helps people in trouble every day. We wish to express our appreciation to the first responders of Stations 34 and 55 for their dedication and commitment to our community.” The meeting took place at the United Methodist Church of Cutler Ridge, 20740 Old Cutler Road, in Cutler Bay. Steve tells us that after the presentation the group enjoyed an interesting and informative presentation from Jay Miranda, the Chief Administrative Officer of Jackson Hospital South.

This year’s Easter Egg Hunt at Cutler Ridge Park will be on Saturday April 19, at 10:00 a.m., hosted by the Cutler Bay Parks and Recreation Department. Cutler Ridge Park is located at 10100 SW 200 Street. The egg hunt itself is for children age 9 and under, with prizes given for special eggs found in each age group, but this should be a fun family event. The first 100 children will receive a 4” x 6” framed picture with the Easter Bunny. Parents are welcome to bring a camera to take a free picture of their child or children with the Easter Bunny. Also adding to the fun will be the Miami Balloon Guy, a bounce house and music with Ivan the DJ. Helping out are the Cutler Ridge UMC, Perrine/Peters UMC, Kerr Memorial UMC and Portraits With a Purpose. For info call 305-238-4166.
Free WiFi is now available, we’re told, at the following Town of Cutler Bay Parks: Cutler Ridge Park, which is located at 10100 SW 200th Street, and Lakes by the Bay Park, at 8551 SW 216th Street.
Social Media is the thing these days. Both Cutler Bay and Palmetto Bay have websites, of course, and Palmetto Bay is on Facebook and Twitter, too. Cutler Bay doesn’t seem to be on Facebook yet, but it does have a Twitter account.
