LiFT Academy provides challenging academics while building character and confidence in an accepting and inclusive environment. We are honored to be able to be a Bronze Cup sponsor for Dylan, in his Life Without Limits at The Derby on May 6, 2017.

Dylan was born with cerebral palsy, a condition affecting body movement and muscle coordination. Although cerebral palsy is not curable in the accepted sense, training and therapy can help improve function. Lift Academy encourages Dylan every day to live with confidence, pride and determination, not allowing cerebral palsy to affect his quality of life. With constant reminders NEVER to quit, NEVER to give up and to stay STRONG, he has learned that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to.

The LiFT Academy provides the perfect environment for students to overcome their limitations, encourage and empower them to advocate for themselves. It is the mainstream light to a bright future.

You can help Dylan continue his dream of a life without limits by becoming a sponsor at Lift Your Spirits at the Derby or by purchasing an individual ticket. 100% of the proceeds benefit LiFT Academy. Please go to their website at liftacademy.org, or to their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LiFT-Academy-576164715757709/.

Come to the Weeki Wachee Florida Swamp Festival from March 3rd to March 5th and meet the attorneys and staff of our Spring Hill office. Betty Whitman and Matt Wheeley will be available for a free consultation and to answer any questions you may have regarding obtaining Social Security Disability benefits, Workers’ Compensation, and Personal injury. Susan Carrell and Ana Kneisler will also be available to assist you and to hand out some fun gifts.

 

Swamp Fest has grown from a small community fundraising festival to an annual event that draws thousands from all over. In 1994 Swamp Fest held its first annual festival in the parking lot at the Weeki Wachee Area Club, soon outgrowing the parking lot it moved around the corner to the Weeki Wachee Christian Camp. The festival remained there for a few years before moving even further down Shoal Line Boulevard to Linda Pederson Park. In 2013 Swamp Fest made the big move to Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, where it will be held once again in 2017.

Swamp Fest is organized by the Weeki Wachee Crime Watch, The Weeki Wachee Area Club, and the Hernando Environmental Land Protectors (H.E.L.P.). All monies (after operating costs) are distributed among the three organizations and to many deserving local charities.

Some of the organizations that have received the donations in previous years are: 4-H, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Arc Nature Coast, Artificial Reef Development, Audubon Society, Boy Scout Troop #433, Chinsegut Hill, Civil Air Patrol, Coastal Spring Hill Education Center, Guardian Ad Litem, Hernando Beach Fire Department, Hernando Beach Marine Safety, Hernando Beach VFW, Hernando County Boys & Girls Club, Hernando County Recreation Dept. Youth Camps, Hernando County Sheriff, Hospice, Holy Ground (Pasco County), Jericho Road Ministries, People Helping People, Salvation Army, Save The Manatee Program, SHARP Crime Watch, Sierra Club (Gulf Coast), Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, The Dawn Center, United States Coast Guard Auxiliary 15-08, West Hernando Christian School.

Our office is privileged, once again, to have the opportunity to bring our Good Humor Ice Cream truck filled with ice cream for the children and families at the 30th Annual Kids With Cancer Holiday Party. Many children in our area are afflicted with cancer during this time of the year and therefore have a difficult time enjoying the season. Realizing this, in 1986, this organization hosted the first Kids With Cancer Holiday Party and have carried on this tradition.

Kids with Cancer provides a special day for the entire family complete with presents, food, drinks, entertainment, dancing, games and even a visit from Santa Claus, and of course, the ice cream. This wonderful event gives them an opportunity to temporarily forget about their illness and have one day of normalcy. It will be held at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on December 4th.

If you have any questions regarding this event please contact Norm Haglund at 727-458-3726.
