Sheriff Lamberti lights the menorah

Mayor Roseann Minnet joins in the celebratory dance…

Dear Readers… the street was full tonight in Pelican Square with residents and visitors…along with dignitaries and candidates coming together to light the menorah on the 3rd night Chanukah… As we waited for the time to light the menorah there were donuts and latkes …as well as menorahs offered to those who were without one at home this year…..Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti  was in attendance and was asked by Rabbi Singer to do the honors of lighting  the menorah’s middle candle…The wind was a little uncooperative, but the Sheriff persevered and got  the job done…to a big round of applause!… After the other 3 candles were also lit, Mayor Roseann Minnet was asked to say a few words and then the Rabbi spoke …giving an inspirational story … After the lighting the music began and there was dancing in the street with the Mayor right in the mix!…Candidate Chris Vincent also took to the circle to take a spin… The circles and the dancing continued on with young and old taking turns ….as the biggest crowd we have seen in sometime watched….

The parting shot…we hear that Vice Mayor McIntee was overheard telling the Rabbi “You guys have good soup!”…OUCH!…Lights out!…

more to come….
