Happy holidays to our readers.
As the year comes to an end, we want to acknowledge the first-ever Diwali event held in the Governor’s Mansion on Nov. 6 by Ron and Casey DeSantis. Over 200 Indian Americans from all over Florida attended the festivities in the governor’s official residence, an antebellum-style house surrounded by spreading moss-draped live oaks. We also have photo coverage of the Festival of Lights celebrations in Tampa, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. As always, the Events listing is a source for activities that your family may enjoy such as yoga and meditation classes, holiday parties, senior get-togethers and even a daylong trip.
