favorite quote came from an older gentleman I believe he was one of our
100 year olds that I said well you’re working pretty hard today and his reply
was I’d rather wear it out than rust it out and that’s the attitude that’s
perfect right there Minsky Gym is a great program because
it’s where they have mentors the gym staff their mentors to these kids we
have over a thousand kids participating in our junior basketball program and
over a hundred volunteers involved volunteerism here in the City is is
really I’d almost gonna say is the backbone of the City you know with the
number of volunteers that they get from people who you know just want to give
back it’s a great way to give back and I think that it’s just a way of us saying
that we’re part of what’s going on here in the City of Port St. Lucie golf is
still the number one leisure activity in the state of Florida and the city of
Port St. Lucie is very proud to have a Municipal Golf Course for as residents
in its guests it’s providing that sense of community and it’s the fun
it’s it’s the good times we get to experience people when they’re happy and
enjoying themselves and you know providing a good quality festival that’s
a lot of fun for us to do. We put on ten plus signature events and
about sixteen smaller events each year with over a hundred thousand
participants coming out we think we offer a very wide and varied Parks
system and we hope that the City of Port St. Lucie the residents of Port St.
Lucie come out and enjoy!
