Mayor Duff Christmas Yuletide Report

Man, I Love Living Here!
By Tommy Duff

“Man I Love Living Here!”

From my perch here on the balcony of my new digs at the Sunwatch Condo Complex I can see a hint of the approaching season. I’m anticipating that soon the glimmering intercostal waters will be reflecting not just our incredible sunsets but the red, green and blue Christmas lights of floating Yuletide flotillas. In our wonderland you can find Santa aboard Sea Rays, Bayliners, Wellcrafts and once in a while a classic Chris- Craft.

Speaking of the season and the spirit I was privileged to attend Betty Seurynch and Jillian Willard’s annual Toys for Tots party. Each year they extract hoards of toys from the generous locals and raise cash by raffling off gift certificates from merchants they have spent all year buttering up. Of course, they may have had a libation and a meal or two in the process.

This year they found a recipient for the booty at a local charitable foundation.  Coreena Downey, Executive Director of Foundation Village tells us that, given this economy, had they not heard out of the blue from Betty and Jillian, there would have been no Christmas for their clients.  Grand job, Ladies!

Well, it’s a gorgeous Sunday morning and I’m off to Clearwater Country Club. Not that I’m much of a golfer (did I hear some one say “duffer”) but Greg and Rebecca McClimans have done a grand job of creating a renew vibrancy at our local links. It’s also a good value and setting for breakfast and lunch.  Not to mention the warm smile I will get from Mickele as she goes into auto-pilot, already knowing my food and spirit wishes.  Man, I Love Living Here!
