Have a Blessed Holiday
Hello friends and neighbors,
I want to take a moment to wish you all a very special Thanksgiving Holiday!
As you take some time off and enjoy some great food with family and friends, I want to remind you that we have several family-friendly events coming up and I encourage you to attend. Deerfield Beach is a very special place and our staff works incredibly hard to make it that way for all of you. Hope to catch you at Ocean Way Holiday or one of the many other treats that we have planned this season.
This has been a year of many accomplishments for our City and we are thankful for those, however, on this Thanksgiving I want you all to know that our local government is very grateful for the privilege and honor of serving you.
Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!
