Celebrating The Holiday Spirit With Joy
The past week in Hallandale Beach has been filled with Holiday spirit and good cheer! I would like to thank Commissioner Lazarow and Vice Mayor Javellana as well as our Parks, Public Works, Fire, Police and the rest of our Departments for making our annual Holiday Lighting Celebration special. Our sponsors and members of the community also de- serve words of gratitude for helping to create such a harmonious and beautiful time. The rides were great, and all had a good time with Santa! The City held its annual Shop with a Cop event on Saturday, December 8 at our local Walmart. This charity event makes it possible for children in our community to go on a shopping spree with a member of our Police Department. Chief Quinones and her staff were excellent, and the event was a great success. It was so enjoyable to see families receive their presents. Of course, I can’t forget to thank our Santa! A special shout out goes to a member of our DPW staff, Bob Kahl, for helping to create so much joy. The Police Athletic League (PAL) also helps to foster a connection between law enforcement and the communities that they serve. Our Hallandale Beach PAL held their annual Comedy Show fundraiser during the evening of Saturday, December 8 at Gulfstream Park. This event helped to raise money for youth athletic programs. A huge thank you goes out to our PAL Coordinator, Johnathan Carrillo, for bringing this event together. Visit hallandalebeachpal.com for more information about PAL’s special events and programs. Monday marked the end of the eight-day Chanukah Festival. It was a week full of meditation, joy, warmth, and light. A special thanks to the Chabad of South Florida for hosting the World’s Largest Chanukah Festival for more than 39 years. As the Holiday season continues, I wish all a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Feliz Noche Buena. May the season fill you with great moments of joy.
I wish all a Happy Holiday. As always, please feel free to reach me at 954-457-1318, I look forward to hearing from you.
