CEDAR KEY ARTS CENTER
As many of us are enjoying the holiday season, we may stop and think about the things for which we are thankful. Our freedom, family and friends, the beautiful Florida weather, hunting and fishing opportunities this winter and camping and hiking trips surely make the list.
Some other blessings to remember are the people who fight for our freedom, those working to keep us safe in our daily lives and those keeping the resources plentiful and the environment beautiful. Often, they may actually be one and the same.
