Governor Rick Scott proclaims November 1, 2017,  

Florida Trauma-Informed Care Day!


Magical Mangroves Coloring Contest

Peace4Tarpon and the City of Tarpon Springs sponsored the Magical Mangroves Coloring Contest for children between the ages of 4-12 to scratch their creative itch, learn a little bit about our magical, native Red Mangroves and win awesome prizes!

151 children submitted beautifully colored and bedazzled posters which were on display at the Tarpon Springs Public Library.  The amazing judges – Tarpon Springs Mayor Chris Alahouzos, Ann Larsen – Director of the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, and Tarpon Springs artist Christopher Still had a difficult time selecting winners!   Winners were recognized and received their prizes at City Hall during the City Commission meeting – which was live streamed.

Congratulations to all participants!

(All submitted posters are available to be picked up at the Tarpon Springs Library – Children’s Section Librarian. )
