Pineapples and Airplanes

'Season' is just around the corner. What does that mean? It means that the calendar of great things to do kicks into high gear.

Two great events that have become hallmarks on the Treasure Coast are the Jensen Beach Pineapple Festival and the Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) Air Show. Both family-friendly events are multi-day affairs and offer diverse experiences.

The Pineapple Festival celebrates Jensen Beach’s Sister-City relationship with Gregory Town, Eleuthera. Did you know that Gregory Town has been growing pineapples on the islands rocky soil since the early 1800’s? How did this relationship develop? Ron Rose, the executive director of the Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce, will provide the details.

Up, up and away…no, not in my beautiful balloon, but in just about any type of aircraft you can imagine. The VNA Air Show 2009 is coming to an airport near you—Witham Field that is—on November 14 and 15. This event is attend by thousands each year and thrills crowds of all ages. Dan Crow, Community Liaison for the Visiting Nurses Association of Florida and coordinator of the air show, will also be in the studio to give an in-depth view of what visitors can expect at this year's event.

Tune in tomorrow, October 23 (Friday) at 10 a.m. (WPSL 1590 AM or to find out if anything is new on the 'To Drill or not To Drill' issue, and so much more. 'See' you tomorrow!
