Hello friends and neighbors,
I hope this has been a great week for all of you!
The holiday season is here that means one of my favorite events is happening tomorrow night, Ocean Way Holiday. Once again we will be lighting up our beautiful fishing pier with holiday lights, there will be a great show for the kids and Santa will be available for pictures. The details are in the event information below.
I have some more exciting news for you. The famous Budweiser Clydesdales will also be dropping by for a visit! The Clydesdales are used for promotions and commercials by the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company. For those of you who don't know, Deerfield Beach is the home of a locally owned and operated Anheuser-Busch beer wholesaler. Double Eagle Distributing is located along Lock Road and is one of the many great businesses in District 4. This will be a fun weekend - I hope to see many of you at the beach!
Friends, I also want to remind you that you can now find me on Twitter @DFB_D4Ganz. You can tweet your questions or send me a direct message. If social media isn't your thing just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a safe & happy holiday,
