I hope all is well! Can you believe it is already February? I am not sure which groundhog to trust, but I can guarantee that we will have six more weeks of some weather. I am hoping for one good snowfall in Stuart this winter. Several areas in the county have seen it, but we seem to miss out. I am a little envious of Meadows of Dan! They have seen some accumulation, and other parts of the county have already. Speaking of Meadows of Dan, I have a reminder: don’t forget about our Community Meeting on February 8th at 5:30 p.m. in the community center. This is to discuss Route 58 signage and Mabry Mill updates.
Also, as we transition into spring and ramp up for another fantastic season, I want to remind you that we are working on our 2024 Spring Edition of our County Magazine. Rebecca Adcock, David Stanley, and the entire tourism team are excited as we prepare to get it to the printers. This will be another significant issue as we discuss various things that make our County extraordinary. I hope you feel the same way and show some love this month; February 14th is just around the corner, Valentine’s Day!
Check out our website and our (in-house) community board; visit the visitor center. By the way, have you stopped by? Just checking on you. There are a lot of events for singles, wine lovers, chocolate lovers, music lovers, and charitable events where we can give back to the community. We support Team Lauren and all our citizens. Patrick, we are family! Well, that will do it, for now, just a little tourism talk.
Patrick, you are an incredible community. Stay strong, warm, and inviting. And remember, tell all of your business partners, family, and friends, “Come get lost and find yourself here!”
All my best,
Director of Tourism
