Where February and March almost blend together because the campaigning never stopped. Even on the first day, David had the pleasure of joining fellow area volunteers and dignitaries for the Keep Pinellas Beautiful “Leaders Against Litter” event at Gandy Beach. David even read the Pinellas County Commission’s Proclamation as part of the opening ceremonies. He then assisted cleaning the area by picking up various trash and cigarette butts. He was then a guest at the Kiwanis Club of St. Petersburg’s Luncheon at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. The meeting highlighted another area program that David is very fond of: The Institute of Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The guest speaker was none other than their executive director, Kimberly Jackson, Esq. That evening, David and Amy attended the very fun and entertaining event, Leadership St. Pete’s Bingo Fundraiser at Green Bench Brewing. On the 2nd, David attended the Community Leaders Social at Copper Shaker, put on by the Florida Economic Club of Tampa Bay. March’s featured Leader was Dr. Kanika Tomalin. On the 3rd, he attended the Clearwater Bar Association’s Diversity and Inclusion Symposium.
David made his way back to Clearwater in the middle of the month for a presentation by Florida Talks- Dr. Mary McCleod Bethune Comes to Life, hosted at the Pinellas County African American History Museum. After a brief trip away with the family, David was back at it by assisting the Campbell Park Neighborhood Association and Keep Pinellas Beautiful with their cleanup. David and the family also attended the always fun and exciting Tampa Bay Rowdies home opener, as they are huge soccer fans.
The month rounded out quite busy just as it started. David attended the St. Pete Bar Association Monthly Mixer at Trophy Fish, a very important Regional Leaders Luncheon to End Overdose at the Hilton-Carillon Park, the Barney-B-Que Event, featuring members of the Barney Masterson, Canakaris, and Penick Inns of Court at Grand Central Brewhouse and catered by attorney Zachariah Wade and Habeas Porcus BBQ. The final weekend saw David running not one, but two 5K races. On the 25th he ran to honor the fallen officers of the St. Petersburg Police Department at the Heroes 5K. On the morning of the 26th, David and Amy attended the Seminole Stampede 5K where David ran and Amy worked the tent. The night ended with the long-awaited signature Clearwater Bar event, The Oyster Roast. David teamed up with Hendry & Parker, PA and Southern Bay Bakery, giving out sweet and savory treats, libations and cigars. And as the big soccer fans that they are, they found time to make it over to Orlando to cheer on the US Men’s National Team as they took one step closer to the World Cup in a 5-1 defeat of Panama.
