We wrapped up our live events with back to back movie nights at Dearborn Street Plaza with great attendance. Your support makes future events like these possible. On Friday we were joined by Mac Martin all the way from Arcadia, producer of the film we screened, “Cracker: The Last Cowboys of Florida”.
Thank you to the Foundation for Art and Music in Education (FAME) for lending us the screen, Friends of the Elsie Quirk Library for funding the equipment and permits, and Englewood CRA for allowing us to use their space.
Most of all thank you for attending our Lemon Bay Fest events, watching the presentations on the website, submitting your recipes, going on scavenger hunts, and sharing your personal thoughts and memories about our town. You truly were the center of this year’s Lemon Bay Fest and together we not only celebrated history, but made some ourselves.
If you would like to view any of the virtual Lemon Bay Fest activities, or submit a lemon dessert recipe, please do so through the website (bit.ly/LBF2021).
