Call to vendors to support Arts & Crafts Fair for DARE

Call to vendors to support Arts & Crafts Fair for DARE

By Bill Kress….

Fifth graders at Howard Drive Elementary School celebrate completion of the DARE program on graduation day in April 2010.

The Village of Palmetto Bay is seeking vendors to participate in a unique fundraiser in support of the Policing Unit’s DARE Program.

The Palmetto Bay Arts & Crafts Fair on Apr. 10, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Ludovici Park, will feature up to 40 vendors. Each vendor pays a $25 registration fee to participate and proceeds from these fees will go toward the purchase of student workbooks and diplomas.

This year, hundreds of school children around the village will benefit from DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the highly acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.

DARE was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of the nation’s school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world. DARE is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through 12th grade how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.

For vendor registration, contact Officer Glasko at 305-278-4016 or visit the Palmetto Bay Policing Unit at Village Hall, 9705 E. Hibiscus St., weekdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

  2. I am sorry but I do not know this Mayor Shelley Stanczyk to make a comment about her. But I worked for a Krispy Kreme and this is not right. Selling uncooked donuts. If you take a ride to this place they have on stand-by two trucks full of uncooked donuts in trucks. This place needs cookers like as if you were frying fries, and flipped for the other side to be cooked just as fries are cooked there not and thats why they bring donuts in from some other place and sell warmed-up donuts to people. People do not know that this Krispy Kreme just got your buck and sold you uncooked donuts…..I wanted to try out the new KK's donuts and it was raw inside so I bring it back and they retured it with the same raw donuts and when I said something they want to take me to the door and the police came and I had to leave. So I am posting this comment and other comments because the police can't remove me from here
