Church Anniversary: 95 years of Fellowship
mzm -" m-=W; I W


Submitted to Frostproof News/Bea Reifels
At a dinner held Nov. 12, the Frostproof United Methodist Church celebrated its 95th
Anniversary. Former pastors of the church were in attendance. (Left to right) John and
Pastor Daphne Johnson (widow of Pastor Greg Elkins), Pastor Ed and Patsy Dinkins,
Pastor Gregg and Kathy Wood, and current Pastor Jerry and Linda Phillips.


Pastors enjoy reunion


Methodist Church
celebrates several
years of services
.. t.. I. nhe early 1900 s, there were
no roads in Frostproof and- the
only transportation for the home-
steaders living around Reedy
Lake was a horse or a boat.
Those living on the south side of
Reedy Lake would follow a hog
path to get to Wall Street. In order
to worship, families held reli-
gious services in their homes,
and later under the oak trees
where the Frostproof Historical'
Museum is now located.
In 1910, a small group of
Methodists built a wooden
church (where Cracker Citrus is
now located). After only one
service, the church burned to the
ground. Everything was lost
except their faith and determina-
tion. In 1913 the Union church
offered the use of its building
until the group could rebuild,
and in 1914 a larger red brick
church was erected on the cor-
ner of 2nd Street and Scenic
Highway, where Harvey's Minit
Market is located today.
In 1916 the women organized
a missionary society with a roll of
eleven members, and in 1920 a
two-bedroom, frame house was
built on West 3rd Street for the
Church parsonage. A Sunday
school building was erected
behind the church in 1925.
The 1940's brought a new
look to the church as stained
glass windows were installed
and the steeple was torn down


and rebuilt with brick. After
World War II, an old barracks
building was purchased and
placed behind the Sunday school
building for additional Sunday
school rooms. It also housed the
first churcltofficerin4-946; a'con-
crete block parsonage was built
just south of the church.
The church continued to
grow, and in 1955 a campaign
was held to raise funds for a new
church. In 1957, the current site
was chosen and construction
began on a new church on
DeVane Street. The social hall of
the education unit was used for
worship services until the sanctu-
ary was completed in 1963. The
beautiful stained glass windows
from the old church, along with
additional newly handcrafted
ones, were installed in the new
sanctuary, and the members
were truly blessed.
In 1965 a home on C Street
was purchased for a parsonage,
and in 1975, the present parson-
age was bought on west Wall
Street.
In 1968, the Methodist Church
merged with the Evangelical
United Brethren Church and
became the United Methodist
Church. The Women's Society of
Christian Service then became
United Methodist Women. The
Uhited Methodist Women's
organization has continued to be
a vital part of the church, helping
with many of the church's activi-
ties each year. Annually the Unit-
ed Methodist Women holds a
spring luncheon and a Mother
and Father's Day Dinner. The
Methodist Men meet monthly for


a program and breakfast.
In the early 1980's, the
church's educational building
began to be used for many com-
munity activities including Bible
study groups, aerobic classes,
Alcoholics Anonymous meet-
ings, Boy Scout and Cub Scout
Troops, TOPS meetings, and a
Quilting Club.
In 2000, the Church reached
out to the community and started
a Child Care program. And then
in the summer of 2004 Hurri-
canes Charley, Frances, and
Jeanne passed through Frost-
proof, wreaking havoc and
destruction 'on the United
Methodist Church, the commu-
nity, and surrounding towns. The
congregation had to vacate the
church while extensive, costly
repairs were made. Church serv-
ices were held at the Marion Nel-
son Funeral Home until Septem-
ber 2005, when services were
resumed in a beautifully repaired
and repainted church.
All the charter members of
1910 have passed on, but the
church continues to sow the
seeds of their faith and to carry
on the work they started. Indeed,
the United Methodist Church of
Frostproof has come a long way
since 1910. Its members' prayer
is that the future years will be
times in which Christ will use His
church for the continuation of
His ministry in Frostproof, in
ways that will touch people's
lives for good and to His glory!
The United Methodist Church
of Frostproof will continue to cel-

Cypress Belle sets sail


Cypress Gardens
Ferry returns
to the water
It's full steam ahead for the
newly refurbished.Cypress Belle,
which is now sailing the waters
of Lake Eloise from Cypress Gar-
dens Adventure Park. The old-
fashioned paddle boat carries
passengers along a scenic route
for daytime excursions, as well
as bringing back the popular din-
ner cruise. Another water attrac-
tion, the Cypress Cove Ferry Line,
is in business, carrying passen-
gers between the north and
south ends of the park.
The Cypress Belle, formerly
known as the Southern Breeze,
has always been a favored attrac-
tion at Cypress Gardens. The boat
was purchased by the park earlier
this year and completely refur-
bished in the style of riverboats that
graced the waterways in days
gone by. The gleaming white deck
rails are draped with patriotic


bunting, complimented by the
bright red paddle and soot-black
smoke stacks. Embarking from
'the deck by the ski show stadium,
the stately Belle cruises along the
shoreline of the park on scenic
Lake Eloise, traversing the length
of the lake before looping around
Little Eloise and returning to shore.
Daytime excursions are
approximately 60 minutes in
length; tickets can be purchased
at the Surf Shop located by the
ski show stadium. The Cypress
Belle will sail during the day on
Friday at noon, 2 pm and 4 pm
and on Saturdays and Sundays at
noon and 2 pm.
Dinner cruises are being'
offered at 4:30 pm.on Saturdays
and Sundays. Tickets for the din-
ner cruise include a scrumptious
meal and 90-minute cruise.
Choose from a selection of
entrees such as honey-glazed
ham, country-fried steak, carved
roasting turkey or jambalaya
with chicken and andoulle
sausage. Compliment your
entr6e with sides like home-style


mashed potatoes & gravy, corn,
steamed vegetables, rice pilaf or
okra. Dessert choices include
Derby or apple pie. Seating is lim-
ited and advance reservations
can be made by calling (863)
324-2111, option 3. If space is
available, tickets can by pur-
chased that day at the Surf Shop.
The.Cypress Belle is also avail-
able for group functions.
Guests will find an easier way
to travel between the north and
south ends of the park on the
Cypress Cove Ferry Line, the
park's new water taxi service.
The north-end dock is located in
Nature's Way and travels along
the shore of the park to a dock at
the ski show stadium. There is no
charge for the ferry.
The debut of the Cypress Belle
and Cypress Cove Ferry line is part
of the 70th anniversary celebra-
tion and joins 39 exciting rides,
spectacular daily shows, and'

WSC presents 'Sounds of the Season'

Woodpeckers relocated


to wildlife areas


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
hopes more Floridians will be hear-
ing the rat-tat-tat of red-cockaded
woodpeckers (RCW) in their com-
munities. The wildlife agency
recently relocated dozens of birds
from areas that have excess birds
to parts of the state with critically
small populations.
FWC biologists said the
process, called translocation, is a
powerful tool for conserving red-
cockaded woodpeckers, which the
state classifies as a "species of spe-
cial concern." Their populations,
once practically continuous across
the state, are now isolated clusters.
"Across their range, the popula-
tion of red-cockaded woodpeckers
has declined drastically, and one of
the main reasons the population is
beginning to recover is because of
two important conservation tools -
artificial cavities, and transloca-
tion," FWC avian coordinator
Robin Boughton said. "It truly is a
success story."
Translocating woodpeckers is a
delicate procedure.
Biologists must identify young
birds at a donor site, find suitable
habitat on the recipient site, and
then create homes by inserting
nest boxes into living pine trees to
create artificial cavities.
On moving day, FWC biologists
use nets attached to telescoping
poles to capture the birds from
their holes, which can be 20-plus
feet off the ground. Overnight, they
drive the critters to their new loca-
tion, place the birds into separate,
but neighboring, artificial cavities
and cover the holes with screen. At
dawn, biologists remove the
screen and anxiously wait for the
birds to get acquainted.
Boughton said the true meas-
ure of success is if the birds stay in
the area and breed. About 50 to 60
percent of translocations are suc-
cessful.
"We've had wonderful results
in Florida. There are many very
small populations, and most of
them are growing now," Boughton
said. "Before translocation, they
were declining or, at best, stable."
Boughton said scientists will
monitor these translocated birds
periodically. They hope to see posi-
tive results by the next breeding
season, which is May-July.
FWC began translocating red-
cockaded woodpeckers more than
five years ago as part of the South-
ern Range Translocation Coopera-
tive (SRTC), a group of private,
state and federal partners from
Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and
Georgia that are collaborating to
help the species recover. In August,
SRTC selected 10 areas in Florida to
receive breeding pairs (see list


below). FWC began moving birds
to public lands in mid-October.
