WOW!! Lake Worth Neighborhood Leaders Bring it HOME!
Lake Worth NAPC Neighborhood Leaders who attended the Palm Beach County Office of Community Revitalization Resident Education to Action Program last November just received notification that eight of the grants they applied for totaling $15,500 have been recommended for approval by the Board of County Commissioners in July. That total does not count the $7,800 in grants recommended for approval from our Good Lake Worth Neighbors at Neighbors Helping Neighbors, Fernsworth Gardens and The Cottages of Lake Worth.

PrideFest Weekend Saturday and Sunday, March 29th and 30th.
Pridefest of Lake Worth and the Palm Beaches attracts more than 12,000 attendees annually throughout South Florida and the Treasure Coast. Since 1992, PrideFest has served as Palm Beach County’s largest gay & lesbian visibility event. The festival exemplifies the strength and growth of the gay & lesbian community by highlighting more than 140 businesses that stand by our community and welcome our business. The event features a parade, live performances and entertainment for all ages.
More importantly, PrideFest emphasizes the importance of diversity in our community, making it stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to society. Without a doubt, PrideFest exists as an important component of Compass’ efforts to create equal opportunity and a safe place to live and allows for more effective local advocacy.
The Festivities begin on Saturday in Bryant Park with music and vendors. The NAPC will be participating again this year in the Pride Parade on Sunday, March 30th at 11 AM. Neighbors from across the City are invited to march together with Neighborhood Banners.
