Broadwater Frozen Holiday Party
The holidays have come and gone, but my little Madalyn still remarks "that was where we had our Frozen party" every time we drive past the Grand Villa! She and the other 40 kids and adults had a blast at the Broadwater “Frozen” Family Holiday Party on December 13th. The event was a great success and the venue was perfect!
Contributing to the success of the event was our ability to build relationships and connections between our neighbors with children; connect with some of our residents who do not attend our other traditional events; strengthen the relationship between Broadwater and our new business neighbor, Grand Villa; and of course, watching the children’s eyes light up as they entered their own private movie theater and enjoyed a visit from Santa during intermission! The kids and adults enjoyed some great food and took part in some wreath making. We wish to thank the City of St. Petersburg for helping to fund this event through the Neighborhood Partnership mini grant.
A big thank you to those who volunteered to help make the event a great success including Santa and his elves. Thanks to Margaret Stone for helping everyone make some beautiful wreaths and Mike Pezze for leading the Christmas Carol sing-a-long. We also wish to thank Evan Mory, Evelyn Hill, Mary Lisan, Mike Milvain and the wonderful staff of Grand Villa. Thank you to all of those who attended, and I hope to see all of you at future family events! Submitted by Kristen Mory.

Once again Broadwater volunteers participated in Carefest on September 27th. Six volunteers checked in all of the volunteer groups and collected and organized volunteers liability forms. Once again St. Petersburg won the Compassion Cup for having the most volunteers while competing with Clearwater and Tampa! Carefest is a one day event where civic and church groups adopt projects designed to help those in need. The goal is to promote volunteerism year round and Broadwater has participated for the past 5 years. Thanks to our volunteers for their time:(from left) Lee Krueger, Junia Milvain, Mike Milvain, Vicki Linkovich, Paul Krueger (back left) and Tom Ando.
