Hello Neighbors, 

How is it possible that Memorial Day is around the corner?  Summer in South Florida can be beautiful, especially in and out on the water.  Did you know there are monthly, free boating safety classes taught by The Coast Guard Auxiliary, and sponsored by the Monica Burguera Foundation?  Just go to our website for details and class schedule.  Water safety, in general should be a conversation you have with your kids.  We also have information on free and low cost swim lessons.

We have a terrific lineup for our second Singing With The Stars event at Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood.  All the information is below, and I hope you will join us.   It's a crazy, wild, laugh til you cry evening.  it's free to attend, but you have to pay to play with the stars.


Sincerely,
Lynne Cameron
Executive Director

DO YOU KNOW THE ABC's OF SAFE SLEEP?

When putting a baby to sleep it is important to follow the ABCs of safe sleep.
Babies should be alone, on their backs and in an empty crib.
When we skip any of these steps, like letting them sleep in bed with us or with their favorite stuffed animal, we put our babies at risk. And on average, nearly one baby dies every other week in our community due to these unsafe sleep practices.
Protect your baby by following the ABCs of safe sleep.
