From the Coral Springs City Commission:
It has been six months since Florida had its first official reported case of COVID-19, and since then, we have seen cases increase to over half a million. As summer comes to a close, we look towards the remaining months of 2020 and are hopeful that through science, medicine, and proper hygiene, we will soon resume some sense of normalcy.
We recognize that it is imperative to reflect on the past during times of great adversity to realize that this, too, will pass. September serves as a historic reminder of hope. We have overcome challenges that we faced as a nation by leaning on personal responsibility, unity, and hard work. We must apply these qualities to solve and overcome our current hardships.
We must emphasize the power in personal responsibility as this is the most critical action taken to overcome the difficulties we are faced with today. The responsibility you have to ensure your safety, health, and wellbeing are actions that will protect you and your loved ones. Still, in addition, it will help protect doctors, nurses, first responders, essential workers, those on the frontlines, and local businesses. Do your part, wear your mask when in public, and practice safe social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Nineteen years ago, unity was essential after our nation and its people were attacked on September 11, 2001. We must honor, remember, and never forget the lives lost us on that day and the families they left behind. As one American family, we must come together in service and remembrance, allowing this day to remind us that we must never let others divide our nation.
On Friday, September 11, 2020, at 10 a.m., members of our City Commission, Coral Springs Police, and Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department will remember the victims and honor the heroes of the 9/11 attacks on our nation by airing a pre-recorded ceremony via social media and CityTV, Blue Stream Channels 25, 25.2, 725, and on AT&T U-Verse Channel 99.
A wreath will be placed in front of the 9/11 Monument located at the Northwest Regional Library (3151 North.
University Drive). Residents and their families are invited to pay their respects at the monument throughout the day on September 11th.
On September 7th, we honor and recognize the hard work and contributions of laborers across our country as we celebrate Labor Day. The COVID-19 crisis has made us truly recognize the value of hard-working Americans. We honor, thank and appreciate every hard-working woman and man that makes Coral Springs the best city to live, work, and raise a family.
National Hispanic Heritage Month
On September 15th, we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, a month that pays tribute to Hispanic Americans’ positive influences, achievements, and contributions. Their history, culture, and successes undeniably enrich our nation and society. Make sure to commemorate this national month by thanking and appreciating Hispanic Americans in our city. We will be featuring city staff and sharing their stories of Hispanic pride on our social media platforms.
