WMBA President’s Message- September 2019

Greetings everyone. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer. Fall is in the air. Again, hard to believe how time flies. 

This month, with the threat of Hurricane Dorian, many things were delayed, including this message. I want to first of all express my deepest sympathies and prayers for those we lost in the Bahamas and for the many that are living with the horrific devastation before them. I’ve seen many places in town for us to drop off goods and to donate monies and I encourage everyone do so. I know as an organization you all have huge hearts! Thank you for all you do!

Here is our calendar for the month of September:

You may recall we had our first ever Town Hall Meeting last month. It was attended by over 50 business owners. It was a HUGE success.

Holiday Spectacular in the Park

This has become an annual event in which we raise monies for the Wilton Manors Elementary School in time for the holidays as well as the City of Wilton Manors After School Program. It was hugely successful last year and this year will certainly be the same. Watch for emails with more details as we get closer to the date. There may be sponsorship opportunities for your business. This will be the last event of the year for us.

Have a great rest of your month everyone. Please keep the Bahamians in your thoughts and prayers. Be kind to each other and help each other!

As always, I thank you so very much for the opportunity to be of service to this amazing organization.

My best,
Tim Moffitt
