    • Praise for Palm Coast Marina, FL AICW Statute Mile 803


      Palm Coast Marina – New Fuel Station! Diesel at transient slips, Gas & Diesel available.

      Palm Coast Marina, one of our newest CRUISERS NET SPONSORS, is located just west of the Intracoastal Waterway at Statute Mile 803 between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. Our thanks to David Grimes for these kind words.

      Kudos to Chris and staff. Great dockside help with lines. Protected setting immediately adjacent to ICW. Little current and only 1.5 foot tidal range. 120 V shore power, unlike some other local marinas with <100 V. Excellent dockage rates as well.

      The Octette Bridge Club is a sentimental comedy that let us listen in on eight matronly Irish Catholic sisters who meet every other Friday to play cards and swap gossip. The story ultimately focuses on the oldest, the domineering Martha, and the youngest, the high-strung and emotional Betsy. Set in the l 930s it’s a charming play about American life in a bygone era.

      “DO I SOUND GAY?” NEXT IN LGBTQ FILM SERIES
       
      The LGBTQ Resource Center at Gulfport Public Library is proud to continue its monthly LGBTQ Film Series on Thursday, May 9 with DO I SOUND GAY?, an entertaining documentary exploring one’s voice and its relation to self-identity and gay identity. The Film Series is a free gathering to watch a film in the company of friends and neighbors on the second Thursday of each month. 
       
      Popcorn, candy, bottled water and soda are available. Donations will be accepted to benefit the LGBTQ Resource Center. Feel free to bring your own “brown bag” supper and beverages. Each film begins at 7pm in the Friends Room at Gulfport Public Library (5501 28th Avenue South). Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
       
      About DO I SOUND GAY? (2015): Director David Thorpe embarks on a hilarious and touching journey of self-discovery, confronting his anxiety about “sounding gay.” Enlisting acting coaches, linguists, friends, family, total strangers, and celebrities, he quickly learns that many people – both gay and straight – often wish for a different voice. In this feature-length documentary, what starts as a personal journey becomes a chance to unpack layers of cultural baggage concerning sexuality, identity, and self-esteem. Featuring appearances by Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn and George Takei. “Surprisingly entertaining, highly informative and honest.” (Newsweek) (Not Rated)
       
      Save the date for our next film, Thursday June 13, STONEWALL UPRISING (2010): On June 28, 1969, New York police raid a Greenwich Village gay bar, The Stonewall Inn. For the first time, patrons refuse to be led into paddy wagons, setting off a three-day riot that launches the Gay Rights Movement. Told by Stonewall patrons, reporters and the cop who led the raid, this compelling documentary recalls the bad old days when psychoanalysts equated homosexuality with mental illness and police entrapment was rampant. At the height of this oppression, the cops raid Stonewall, triggering nights of pandemonium with tear gas, billy clubs and a small army of tactical police. The rest is history. (Rated PG 13). We are proud to screen this film as part of our full slate of events for LGBTQ Pride Month throughout June, also commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Prior to the film, we will also hear remarks by local resident Jay Chetney, who was present during the Stonewall riots.
       
      Also save the dates for our films on July 11, QUEERCORE: HOW TO PUNK A REVOLUTION; August 8, SOUTHWEST OF SALEM; and September 12, THE HAPPY PRINCE. Watch for announcements of other films as they are added to the series on the second Thursday of each month.

      Call for Applicants for its 2019/2020 Community Support Grant Program
       
      The Gulfport Merchant’s Chamber (GMC) has announced a call for applicants for its 2019/2020 community support grant program. Local non-profit organizations that target or include Gulfport in their activities are invited to apply. Applicants must be certified tax-exempt non-profit organizations, government entities requesting funds for public purposes, or schools and colleges at any level.
       
      For more details and to apply, see the application available atwww.VisitGulfportFlorida.comClick on “Community Grant” at the bottom of the home page. Submission of an application does not guarantee funding and the Board of the GMC reserves the right to determine or adjust the amount awarded to any recipient. Applications must be received in writing and must be emailed, postmarked or delivered no later than March 31, 2019. Applications received after the deadline cannot be considered. Decisions on recipients are scheduled to be announced by April 27.

      Since sponsoring the community grants, the GMC has provided many thousands of dollars in funding to a large and growing roster of worthy non-profit organizations. The GMC also gives back to the community in other ways during the year, including sponsoring “Gulfport’s Get Rescued” each February, benefitting animal rescue groups. A monthly Clothing Swap benefitting CASA is held during the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market; and the GMC’s “Holiday Hoopla” helps collect donations for Operation Santa in December. Public art installations have also been commissioned and installed with GMC funding.

      2020 Census: How to Get Involved
       
      The 2020 Census provides an opportunity for everyone to be counted. Tribal, state, and local governments; community based organizations; faith-based groups; schools; businesses; the media; and others play a key role in developing partners to educate and motivate residents to participate in the 2020 Census.
       
      When community members are informed, they are more likely to respond to the census. Through collaborative partnerships, the U.S. Census Bureau and community leaders can reach the shared goal of counting EVERYONE in 2020.
       
      The Complete Count Committees (CCC) program is key to creating awareness in communities all across the country.
       
      • CCCs utilize local knowledge, influence, and resources to educate communities and promote the census through locally 
      • based, targeted outreach efforts. 
      • CCCs provide a vehicle for coordinating and nurturing cooperative efforts between tribal, state, and local governments; communities; and the Census Bureau. 
      • CCCs help the Census Bureau get a complete count in 2020 through partnerships with local governments and community organizations.
       
      WHO?
      Tribal, state, and local governments work together with partners to form CCCs to promote and encourage response to the 2020 Census in their communities. Community-based organizations also establish CCCs that reach out to their constituents.
       
      WHAT?
      A CCC is comprised of a broad spectrum of government and community leaders from education, business, healthcare, and other community organizations. These trusted voices develop and implement a 2020 Census awareness campaign based upon their knowledge of the local community to encourage a response.
       
      WHEN?
      The formation of CCCs is happening NOW! Leaders are identifying budget resources and establishing local work plans. In 2020, they will implement the plans and lead their communities to a successful census count.
       
      HOW?
      It’s up to all of us! CCCs know the best way to reach the community and raise awareness. Some activities could include:
       
      • Holding CCC kickoff meetings with media briefings.
      • Participating in Census rallies or parades.
      • Coordinating Census unity youth forums.
      • Hosting Interfaith breakfasts and weekend events.
      • Encouraging the use of Statistics in Schools classroom resources.
      • Incorporating census information in newsletters, social media posts, podcasts, mailings, and websites.
      • Helping recruit census workers when jobs become available.
       
      WHY?
      The primary goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. Community influencers create localized messaging that resonates with the population in their area. They are trusted voices and are best suited to mobilize community resources in an efficient manner.
