Happy New Year! Many of us took part in holiday parties and family feasts this December. For some, the holidays don’t end until the last of the College Bowl and professional Football playoff games conclude.  Then, talk turns from the point spreads to the holiday spread that is more personal to us – and time for the ‘New Year’s Resolutions to reduce. 

Are you ready?  Our Palmetto Bay 2017 “Get Fit Palmetto Bay” is ready with a series of events, programs, and seminars focused on wellness, nutrition, and fitness. All information can be found on the official village website:

The Village has activities planned for all ages – walking, fitness groups, biking, and running – to name a few.  There is plenty to do as part of the Get Fit Palmetto Bay and Mayor’s Challenge campaigns – it all kicks off on January 8, 2017, at 2:30 – 5:30 PM at Ludovici Park.

I started the Mayor’s Challenge in 2016, and it is back for a second year. The 7-week program, starts January 8.  To track progress and be eligible for prizes, participants must register by January 14. For a low $25.00 fee, participants will receive an initial health screening administered by Baptist Health, which included weigh-in and body composition measurements as well as a “goodie bag”, containing a Health Passport to track measurements, two passes to Surf & Turf Zumba-Kayak Workout and discounts and freebies from program partners.

Please see the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge Rules posted online for more information (CLICK HERE). 

I look forward to participating in "Get Fit Palmetto Bay" in 2017 - please join us and take advantage of your "Village of Parks".

Happy New Year!

Eugene Flinn, Mayor
Village of Palmetto Bay
