Get ready to “Spring Forward” the clocks on Sunday morning, March 10, followed ten days later by the first day of Spring season. Florida lawmakers recently approved a bill to keep Daylight Saving Time going throughout the year. We might not not need to “Fall Back” on November 4. Stay tuned.
So many delightful events are before us in the coming week. Here’s a few highlights to peruse before having a look at the embarrassing long list of great things to do in our little town.
