TUESDAY IS THE DAY - POLLS OPEN 7am-7pm. 

NPAs (aka Independents), remember there are several nonpartisan things to vote for like judges, OCPS funds extension and OC Mayor/Commission races.

Some legislative races also don’t have opposition from the other party so you can vote in the primary for those, too.

DON’T JUST STAND THERE- GO VOTE! (If you already early voted or by mail. bless you!)

The Launch Window opens at 8:30 am Monday. Second gentleman Doug Emhoff will also be there. I wonder if Bill Nelson will be? He turned up at services at FUMCO a couple of Sundays ago!

“The YMCA of Central Florida will be inviting residents to try their facilities free of charge in September as part of a new initiative. 

Free Fridays will take place every Friday during the month of September and will allow residents to visit any and all YMCA locations in the region for no charge. That includes access to wellness centers, group exercise classes, pools, gyms, family programs, and more…”

Remember, joining the Y doesn’t just get you in shape. Your membership also provides great programs for kids and seniors in the community. I joined the Y back when I was just a pup (I was even in Indian Guides!) and am still going strong (when I started, the Sterchi Family Center on Mills was new - and a good bit smaller).

I can’t wait to check out the new Y in the Packing District once it opens.

The History Center is going to take a look at Orlando’s ‘90’s concert scene:

The History Center seems to have figured out how to get right up to the line of edgy without crossing over. I continue to be excited about their success. They’ve done great work on important events and groups like the  LGBTQ+ community (including the Pulse tragedy) and the Ocoee Massacre.

There are also workaday history camps for the kids and game nights. When you think about a well-rounded, well-run museum, OCRHC is it.

We often complain about what’s broken in Orlando, but the museum and its next door neighbor, OCLS, are getting it right.

I love the history center! For a couple years my office was at 1 N Orange Ave. When the history center had their grand opening a couple of us walked over for it. Imagine my surprise when I saw the history center brochure with my daughters photo on it! She'd gone to a Christmas break camp at the science center and one of the days there they had a pioneer day so there was my kid looking very Little House on the Prairie-ish. :tw_love:

Also, every January you can go pick up the free city of Orlando photo contest calendar.
