Hi folks! Before giving you a taste of the upcoming events, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the heart-breaking situation many of our fellow Floridians are experiencing. In the past few days, a furious category 4 hurricane named Ian obliterated communities throughout our state. Residents are facing a long, daunting recovery. As of this Tuesday, 109 people had been reported dead and many more are still missing. Hundreds of thousands of people are without power and many Floridians have found themselves homeless.
If you are one of the lucky ones who did not face the fury of the hurricane, you can still help others! You can sign up as a volunteer (such as here: https://samaritanspurse.org/our-ministry/hurricane-Ian/) or you can donate money to help the victims. Here are some trustworthy sites:
Despite the dire situation, Florida is known for its strong sense of community, and we have no doubt this time we will rise again, stronger than ever.
Now, for some, October means all Halloween: costumes, pumpkin carving, spooky themes, and haunted houses. But let’s face it, there’s much more to do in Miami! If you want to take a break from corn candy, check out these superb events happening this month:
