Coastal Realty Charity Golf Tournament

The 2017 Coastal Realty Charity Golf Tournament benefiting K9s for Warriors will be held on March 18 at the St. Augustine Shores Golf Club, 707 Shores Blvd. Shotgun start happens at 9:00 AM.

Golfers will compete for prizes and there will be a raffle for other prizes such as dinner at local restaurants up to vacation rentals provided through some of our wonderful condo owners whose properties are managed by Coastal Realty.

The charity we are supporting through this tournament is K9s for Warriors.  K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our Warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Their goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. They have seen tremendous success in the men and women who have completed the K9 For Warriors program. Many have reunited with their families, gone back to school and have significantly reduced their medications. K9s For Warriors is a tax-exempt 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.

You can read more about them here: www.k9sforwarriors.org/

Coastal hosted the first Charity Golf Tournament in 2016 which also benefited K9s for Warriors. Our inaugural event was quite successful and we would like to build on that first one to make this one even better and more successful to provide more assistance to this most worthwhile charity. Check out the video from the 2016 event.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving – giving thanks, being thankful, counting our blessings (especially since Hurricane Matthew ). A time to reflect on  what we have to be thankful for, to gather as families for feasting and fellowship.

Many Americans are familiar with the traditional Thanksgiving story, but do you really know the true story of Thanksgiving?

Credit:  http://www.si.edu/Encyclopedia_SI/nmah/thanks.htm

Most Americans are familiar with the Pilgrim’s Thanksgiving Feast of 1621, but few realize that it was not the first festival of its kind in North America. Long before Europeans set foot in the Americas, native peoples sought to insure a good harvest with dances and rituals such as the Green Corn Dance of the Cherokees.

The first Thanksgiving service known to be held by Europeans in North America occurred on May 27, 1578 in Newfoundland, although earlier Church-type services were probably held by Spaniards in La Florida. However, for British New England, some historians believe that the Popham Colony in Maine conducted a Thanksgiving service in 1607 (see Sources: Greif, 208-209; Gould, and Hatch). In the same year, Jamestown colonists gave thanks for their safe arrival, and another service was held in 1610 when a supply ship arrived after a harsh winter. Berkley Hundred settlers held a Thanksgiving service in accordance with their charter which stated that the day of their arrival in Virginia should be observed yearly as a day of Thanksgiving, but within a few years an Indian uprising ended further services (Dabney). Thus British colonists held several Thanksgiving services in America before the Pilgrim’s celebration in 1621.

The Pilgrims, with a puritanical rejection of public religious display, held a non-religious Thanksgiving feast, aside from saying grace. In fact, they seem to have used the three days for feasting, playing games, and even drinking liquor.

In 1623, the Pilgrims at Plymouth Plantation, Massachusetts, held another day of Thanksgiving. As a drought was destroying their crops, colonists prayed and fasted for relief; the rains came a few days later. And not long after, Captain Miles Standish arrived with staples and news that a Dutch supply ship was on its way. Because of all this good fortune, colonists held a day of Thanksgiving and prayer on June 30. This 1623 festival appears to have been the origin of our Thanksgiving Day because it combined a religious and social celebration.

Festivals of Thanksgiving were observed sporadically on a local level for more than 150 years. They tended to be autumn harvest celebrations. But in 1789, Elias Boudinot, Massachusetts, member of the House of Representatives, moved that a day of Thanksgiving be held to thank God for giving the American people the opportunity to create a Constitution to preserve their hard won freedoms. A Congressional Joint Committee approved the motion, and informed President George Washington. On October 3, 1789, the President proclaimed that the people of the United States observe “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” on Thursday, the 26th of November.

The next three Presidents proclaimed, at most, two days of thanksgiving sometime during their terms of office, either on their own initiative or at the request of a joint Resolution of Congress. One exception was Thomas Jefferson, who believed it was a conflict of church and state to require the American people hold a day of prayer and thanksgiving. President James Madison proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving to be held on April 13, 1815, the last such proclamation issued by a President until Abraham Lincoln did so in 1862.

Most of the credit for the establishment of an annual Thanksgiving holiday may be given to Sarah Josepha Hale. Editor of Ladies Magazine and Godey’s Lady’s Book, she began to agitate for such a day in 1827 by printing articles in the magazines. She also published stories and recipes, and wrote scores of letters to governors, senators, and presidents. After 36 years of crusading, she won her battle. On October 3, 1863, buoyed by the Union victory at Gettysburg, President Lincoln proclaimed that November 26, would be a national Thanksgiving Day, to be observed every year on the fourth Thursday of November.

Only twice has a president changed the day of observation. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in order to give depression-era merchants more selling days before Christmas, assigned the third Thursday to be Thanksgiving Day in 1939 and 1940. But he was met with popular resistance, largely because the change required rescheduling Thanksgiving Day events such as football games and parades. In 1941, a Congressional Joint Resolution officially set the fourth Thursday of November as a national holiday for Thanksgiving.

Today, Thanksgiving is a time when many families come together, and many churches are open for special services. We have both Native Americans and immigrants to thank for the opportunity to observe a day of thanksgiving.

What a better place to celebrate than in one of the places with one of the earliest “Thanksgiving” events!  It’s off-season and Coastal is offering great rates and even further discounted units.  Check out availability at the links below.

My Resilient Hometown

Resilient – able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. Synonyms – strong, tough, hardy; quick to recover, buoyant, irrepressible

Resilient! What a perfect term for the beautiful town of St. Augustine since Hurricane Matthew decided to come for a visit a few weeks ago.

Stores and restaurants are re-opening or in the process of rebuilding and visitors are returning for well-deserved vacations. The beaches have been cleaned up or in the process of being cleaned up and returning to their beautiful state. Many dunes are gone now, but they did their job in saving many residences and businesses.

While there are still areas of great devastation and residents still coping with the effects of the storm,  our town is returning to normal. For some normal will still be long in coming, but for others, the return to normalcy is beginning or has occurred.

I was able to go downtown recently and was quite pleased to see how many people were downtown supporting our local businesses and enjoying a beautiful evening in a beautiful town.

Enjoy the slideshow of photos of several of our iconic landmarks and people enjoying an evening in the Nation’s Oldest City.

Open for Business!

St. Augustine is putting itself back together and is open for business! Many restaurants in the historic district, shops, and attractions have reopened .

On Friday, I went downtown and it was so wonderful to see the great numbers of visitors at the various landmarks – the Castillo De San Marcos, the Plaza de la Constitución, and St. George Street. After running into a friend on St. George, we walked to Al’s Pizza to eat dinner. The restaurant had recently reopened after some minor water intrusion. My friend loves their chicken alfredo and I had a slice of their excellent pizza. It was nice to support one of our local businesses.

There were even four-legged visitors in abundance. This little one was having a great time at the Castillo de San Marcos.
