Donated Photos Have Come to City Hall

Back in December, Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy Jacobs donated three beautiful photos that were taken by Peggy right here in Wellington. I'm pleased to announce that they are now hanging in the Wellington City Hall. You can see them on the second floor, right side. They are across from large windows that provide beautiful natural lighting.

Peggy Jacobs took these photos at the Big Blue Preserve right in the heart of Wellington. You can see at least seven species of birds, including the elusive roseate spoonbill. As you can see, Peggy is a natural artist with the camera.

A few of our Board members met at the City Hall so pictures could be taken for an upcoming article in The Palm Beach Post. As we were gathering downstairs waiting for the photographer, we got an unexpected surprise. It seems Jeremy Jacobs is the owner of the Boston Bruins hockey team. Since May of last year, they have been the proud owners of the Stanley Cup. While we waited, suddenly a firetruck arrived, with full lights and siren, escorting the Cup! It was brought in to the lobby of the City Hall, and we all took turns getting our picture taken with the Cup. We even got to try on Mr. Jacobs championship ring! Here we are surrounding the cup.
