Simone Kaplan from Davie made it to the final rounds at the National Spelling Bee.  A student at St Bonaventure, Samantha rounded out her third year trying to capture the title.  She placed ninth and did a fantastic job. I watched the final rounds and was routing for her.  The eight remaining contestants were all named as co- champions.  Great job Samantha.  We are all so proud of you!!!!

Davie’s Hurricane preparedness expo was a great success.  Being prepared is the most important thing to remember as we enter hurricane season. Follow all the recommendations listed in every guide that is circulated by the town, news media and Broward County.  It is for your safety and we hope that you will take every alert seriously.  The biggest problem during this rainy time of year is flooding. Don’t gamble with your life! If an area is flooded “go around, don’t drown”!  Even if it is a street you travel regularly you don’t know if the road has been damaged or if you swerve to avoid oncoming vehicles that you may go off road and into a swollen canal that has gone over the bank. If we have not yet put up detour signs, don’t assume it is safe and call us immediately. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

Let me remind everyone that we have a turn out program for Davie horses at Robbins Park.  For an application and a copy of the steps to take please go to our website at www.davie-fl.gov.

Have a wonderful and safe summer. There will be no council meetings for a while.  I am looking forward to kicking back and taking a few weeks to relax and unwind so I can be re-energized for our busy schedule starting again on July 31.
