Greetings !
Friday was a beautiful day for our Arbor Day Celebration. Many thanks to the  “many” who made this a successful event: Alan Fiers – who read the Proclamation praising trees; Barbara Platner who gave us the history of the Pink Powderpuff tree, Dave Stevens and other POA members who financed the  purchase of the tree and helped to set up including- John- Peterson the sound man and  Scott Ackerman- the table mover-; Alan Welch and his crew- Andrew & Jared who planted the tree;Tracy Larcher who transported the tree; Elizabeth Kuechenmeister for taking  the good photos  ( yours truly took the lesser ones ) ; Robert Halkett & Mary Stanton for handling the EC Tree Petition and for everyone else who came out to celebrate the “greening” of Palm Beach Shores.
Tree Replacement by EC Committee
A Royal Poinciana Tree was planted in memory of Dan Shalloway.  Unfortunately the original planting did not do well and the EC has replanted in honor of Dan and the years he served the Town of Palm Beach Shores.

Hello Palm Beach Shores,

Our photo this month is the new Little Free Library that the Seasiders have generously donated to the Town. It is located on the Parkway near the gazebo behind Town Hall. If you can’t read the plaque, the inscription reads “The Seasiders of Palm Beach Shores Salute Elaine ‘the Book Lady’ Sylvester with this Little Free Library.” It has been spectacularly successful. Every time I go by, there is someone scanning the books. Joan Reilly’s lovely bookmarks make our Little Library special. Please stop by and take a book or leave a book.
