Events Spotlight

On Mother’s Day, our community gathered for a delightful tea party, creating cherished memories with our families. The event was filled with laughter, heartfelt conversations, and an abundance of delicious traditional tea party treats.

Several state parks were formerly private tourist attractions purchased by the state of Florida to preserve their natural environment.

Hello June!

Dementia Awareness

Dementia Awareness

Being kind to people with dementia and Alzheimer’s is essential because their cognitive impairments mean they do not understand everything as we do. These individuals often face confusion, memory loss, and emotional distress, making everyday interactions challenging.

Dementia Awareness

By showing patience, compassion, and empathy, we can provide them with a sense of security and comfort. Kindness helps to maintain their dignity and can significantly improve their quality of life. It also fosters a supportive environment that can ease their anxiety and create more positive experiences for them and their caregivers.

FL State Parks

Our national parks offer a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. These natural sanctuaries provide a place to unwind, reconnect with nature, and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. The fresh air and tranquil environment contribute to a sense of peace and well-being. Spending time in these natural wonders reminds us of the importance of preserving these spaces for future generations.

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Ingredients:
2 boxes strawberries
1 box of white cake mix
3/4 cup of Greek vanilla yogurt
2 egg whites
1 1/3 cups of water
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Skewers

Directions:
Combine the cake mix, greek yogurt, egg whites and water in a bowl.
Mix until smooth and pour into a greased cake pan or dish. (9×13)
Bake at 350 for 20-25min until toothpick comes out clean or according to directions on the box.
Cut stems off of strawberries and halve them if need to in order to create uniform sizes.
Cut shortcake into 2-inch cubes.
Take skewer and alternate strawberries and shortcake cubes. (I like to do three or four of each per stick).
In a glass bowl melt chocolate in the microwave for about two minutes stirring every every 30 seconds.
Once fully melted, insert it into a large plastic bag and cut off the corner tip.
Drizzle all over kabobs and place in fridge to set.
