In the last issue we ran a story on the Village’s ‘Summer Senior Sampler’ pro- gram of activities hosted at the Arlene & Edward Feller Community Room at Ludovici Park. One of those activities for residents is the Zumba Gold dance-fit- ness class by Fabi Mathelier. The regular Zumba routines have been modified for active older participants, but with the same zesty Latin music, camaraderie and fun. Unfortunately, the photo we ran with the article, identified as Fabi Mathelier, wasn’t her but an unidentified woman included in the program info posted on the village website. Fabi appreciated the notice about the class, but was understandably bewildered by the photo. “She’s a lovely lady, but it’s not me.” So with apologies, we are running the correct photo, send to us by Fabi, here.
Miami Southridge alumni, take note! We hear from Linda Moskowitz that “The 25 Year Reunion for the Miami Southridge Class of ‘87 will take place July 21, 2012 at the Peacock Garden Cafe in Coconut Grove starting at 6 p.m.” It’s located next to the Sonesta Hotel. For more info on the event, certainly a special milestone for grads, visit their web site: www.southridgealumni.com. Better do it soon!
WLYF, 101.5 LITE FM in Miami-Dade, is happy, but even more so is their Creative Services Director, Dave Corey, since his original radio adaptation of Frankenstein’s Demon just won the Silver Trophy for Best Drama Special…in the WORLD…at the 2012 International Radio Program and Promotional Awards Ceremony in New York. “I am beyond speechless. Got to sit feet away from Bernard Kalb and two other radio/TV legends who were part of Edward R. Murrow’s team. I love my job! The LITE FM Players were spectacular!”
Walmart gets plenty of negative press, every time it makes a new store move so let’s “keep fair and balanced” by reporting that the company recently awarded $691,000 in grants to various non-profits in Florida, including $100,000 to the Homestead-based Farm Share program that won KFHA support for distributing outdated produce to the area’s hungry.
Thought for the Day:
When life presents itself
with a thousand reasons to cry,
show the world that you have
a thousand and one reasons to smile.
