The Sarasota Post Looks Back at 2017


As we make the ascension into 2018, we look back at 2017 with wonder at the exciting events that took place. Nationally, we witnessed a new presidency and a myriad of opinions and conversations that have ensued. Floridians and those in the tropics braced for a Category 5 hurricane when Irma blew in but thankfully, for many, it was a quieter event. We pray for those in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands who are still suffering.

When word gets out that a member of our Sarasota family is in need, the masses unite. Yes, we are blessed to live in not only a beautiful, tropical paradise but one that beats with a wide-open, generous heart.
