15th Annual Great American NAPC
4th of July Raft Race
"TOYS! Out of the box"

Since the NAPC was founded in 2007, we've come to truly value our special partnerships with our Neighbors in the Lake Worth business community. Nowhere is the evidence of those partnerships more apparent than in our signature event - The Great American 4th of July Raft Race! In 2013, the NAPC assumed the leadership role for this annual Splash Bash and every year since then we've turned to our partners to sponsor the event with fabulous t-shirts that have become highly collectible and worn with pride year round.

This year's T-shirts celebrate the playful nature of our NAPC Neighborhoods with "Toys! Out of the box" as our overall theme. Roberta Millman-Ide from the South Palm Park Neighborhood graciously created our theme image on the front of the T-shirts and we are honored to showcase the logoes of our sponsors on the back of our 2016 T-shirts. T-Shirts will be available starting Saturday, May 28th through the Neighborhood Associations and at Andy's Newsstand downtown for $20. The new Saturday Green Market at the Gray Mockingbird Garden, located at the Scottish Rite Center, 2000 North D Street, will also have Raft Race t-shirts available for sale. New this year, we will be offering Extra Small sizes along with Small, Medium, Large, XLarge, 2XLarge and 3XLarge. 

The Lake Worth Little Free Library Project is off to a great start. By Feb/March 2016, forty Little Free Libraries that are already fully funded will be up and running. We have a current waiting list of more than 20 individuals who have volunteered to be Little Free Library Stewards as soon as more libraries are available. We will be applying for more grants this year to fund these additional Little Free Libraries. 

To see all the LFL locations in Lake Worth, please visit our interactive map by clicking on the Little Free Chalkboard Library in the top of the right hand column. The map is real easy to enlarge and if you click on one of the spots, a window will open with the address of the library and the name of the Steward.

The Lake Worth Little Free Libraries are brought to our Neighborhoods through the collaborative effort of the NAPC, the College Park Neighborhood Association and the Friends of the Lake Worth Library, who each applied for and received in total $15,000 from the Palm Beach County Office of Community Revitalization through their Resident Education to Action Program. 

This entire project has received extraordinary support and assistance from the City of Lake Worth, for which we are very appreciative. Three of the Little Free Libraries in our family were built by the Stewards themselves and three more have been graciously donated by the Guardian Credit Union and the Firefighters Local 2928.
