Boca Childrens Museum Gets New Fence Thanks to Rotary Club of Boca Raton The Boca Raton Childrens Museum has a brand new white picket fence surround ing the property thanks to the Rotary Club of Boca Raton. Diane Shawcross, a staff member of the Florence Fuller Child Development brought the idea of the fence to the Ro tary Club of Boca Raton. The club loved the idea and decided to raise the money necessary to make it happen. Ellyn Okrent, the CEO of Florence Fuller Child Development Centers, is grateful for the generosity of the Rotary Club and said that the members put a lot of support into helping the local children. Education and community are priories of the Rotary and what a better place to put your money where your heart is? she said. The Childrens Museum is a local gem in the heart of our community that provides a unique opportunity for chil dren to learn and grow. Many members of the Rotary are child advocates and are familiar with the Childrens Museum. The fence is something that will help give parents a piece of mind when their children go to the museum to have fun and learn, knowing that it provides a safe boundary from the dangers of cars pass ing by on the street. The fence is very important for keeping the children safe at the museum, Okrent said. Up until now, parents were always on guard while their children played outside. In a split second, a child could run into the street or the parking lot. The fence not only provides a safety barrier, it The new addition will even give the museum an opportunity to plan more outdoor events and activities. We are working on creating more out side creative play opportunities for our children to enjoy while they spend quality time using their imagination and spending time with family and friends, she said. The fence was recently unveiled in front of a crowd of people at a ribbon cut ting ceremony and was followed by a reception. Guests included members of the Rotary Club, Boca Raton Childrens Museum board chair Terri Fedele, Boca Raton Council member Andrea ORourke and County Commissioner Robert Wein roth.

All around town, during special public events, we offered thanks to the nearly 21 million heroes of our nation can liberty. I had the honor of serving as master of ceremonies at the annual Veterans Day service at St. Paul Baptist Church in Delray Beach and later speak ing at Mount Olive Baptist Church also in the same city. hear the award-winning Dimensional Harmony chorus from Boynton Beach Community High School as they per formed stunningly on Sunday morning at St. Paul. has performed in the London Inter national Choral Festival, at New York Citys Carnegie Hall as well as on NBCs Today show after winning the Today show choir competition. The highlight of the program was when veteran radio personality James James T Thomas from WHQT (Hot story into the theme to create a message that both the youth and the adults in the service could relate to. In speaking with young people and so many of them have no idea why we observe Veterans Day. To some, it is a visible sign of respect to a relative or friend who served in the military. Some said it is a day when we honor our war dead. And upon the heroism of those who died in our countrys service. I think it is so important for Americans of all ages to understand the It was 100 hundred years ago, on Nov. 11, 1918, at 11 a.m. the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month that the allies and Germany signed an armistice in France, ending the war to end all wars. A year later and to some degree for more than three decades, Armistice Day was celebrated. ond World War ended, the name was changed to Veterans Day to honor all veterans, living and dead. Veterans Day should serve as a reminder to us that while appreciation and gratitude is always welcome, our veterans are often an underappreciated group in society. Let us not forget the role that veter ans have played in our lives: The freedom of religion that we practice today, it is the veteran who gave it to us, not the preacher. It is the veteran who gave us the freedom of the press, not the reporter. It is not the poet but the veteran who gave us the freedom of speech. We have the right to a fair trial because of the veteran, not the lawyer. We have the right to vote because of the veteran, not the politician It is the veteran who salutes the us the freedom to proudly wave our And with Thanksgiving just a tinue to give our thanks to the men and women who are making and have made a difference in communities around our nation. Be Thankful for Gifts and Giver! Every gift should be received with a grateful heart, especially toward the giver who remembered us with the gift. Sadly, gratitude is becoming a neglected prac tice among many who might despise the gift received, or think it was their right to receive a much better gift! Thanksgiving should never be ig nored by anyone, for any gift received, be it great or small; be it something de sired, or something totally unexpected, or one for which we cant see an imme diate use. Even when we receive a gift we may not particularly care for, gratitude should not be absent! For every human, God is ultimately the source of any good and perfect gift, and what He sends to His human creatures is something for their wellbeing. As I learned in my youth, and never forgot, all things are needful that He sends; nothing is needful that He withholds. Indeed, the creator knows best what His human creatures require and He never fails to favor them with His well-supplied by a gracious heavenly Fa ther in all areas of life, even when many do not acknowledge that reality, and oth ers prefer not to believe in a divine being Who truly cares and provides for them! The act of thanksgiving should be a daily practice for every individual, for it is every day that human need is abun dantly provided for by a watchful, loving creator. As Americans we are favored with a special holiday each year, designated for we are and have always been, regardless tions being confronted in our national life, besides in our individual experienc es. Yet, our gaze should not be on what we may lack, but on what we possess in such great measure. On this years Thanksgiving Day, let us again pause to thank our Divine Provider, as we also render our thanks to His human agents who operate from various corners of society, and via mani of so many, positively affecting human lives day after day. Instead of depending on the govern ment, let us more fully manifest our de pendence on Almighty God since what To that end, let us always be grateful for what we already have, however small it might appear, so that greater gifts may be gradually granted to meet our every need of body, soul, and mind! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Edition 389 7 COLUMNISTS The Boca Raton Tribune BOCA SOCIETY HAPPENINGS By Charlotte Beasley Connected Warriors Gala at Boca Marriott FAITH By Robert J. Tamasy A while back, my wife and I visited about our experience there. In completing the questionnaire, we were automatically entered in a contest with a monetary re had won and weeks later received a check in the mail. It was not for a huge amount, but we put the unanticipated money to good use. This prompted me to wonder what it would take to truly feel rich. What if you won a huge prize in the lottery? Or if you discovered you were an heir to a wealthy relative, and that person had left you a large inheritance? Or if someone unexpectedly showed up at your door and announced you had won a major sweep stakes? Would any of those make you feel rich? Many people believe that if somehow they were to come into a huge amount of money, they would become truly rich and all their problems would suddenly be resolved. But would they? We can all recall news accounts about famous, extremely wealthy people who have experienced Some of the wealthiest nations in the world are beset by great societal prob money is not necessarily the cure-all for serious struggles. Someone has said if given a choice between having money or not having ing money. I think we all would agree. But is money, property, or a hefty investment portfolio the source of true riches or is it something else? And how can we suc ceed in acquiring these riches? The Bible offers some observations: Material wealth as well as the lack of it can be stumbling blocks. In terms of money and material possessions, we may struggle with not having what we need. But having too much can also create problems: give me neither poverty nor riches,but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, Who is the Lord? Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God (Proverbs In the pursuit of tangible wealth, there never is enough.There is something about wealth that fails to convince us that we have enough of it even the richest people will tell you there is always room for just a little bit more. Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves This too is meaningless (Ecclesiastes a path to true wealth. Embracing the truth God provides in the Scriptures can enrich more than anything the physical world can offer. I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches (Psalm Our use of material resources can be a test. Perhaps our attitude toward wealth and how we use what we have can serve as a strong indicator of our character, as well as our reliability as stewards of what has been entrusted to our care. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? (Luke 16:11). What Does It Take To Be Truly Rich? On Saturday I attended the Connected Warriors Gala at the Boca Marriott to celebrate Veterans Day weekend. The Guest of Honor was Jay Weinberg, a Boca philanthropist and a much loved member of the community. Judy Weaver and Jan Savarick did an excellent job of fundraising for this very worthy cause.
