DUNEDIN - When Sandra Schwartz moved to Dunedin six years ago, she didn’t know a soul in town. Now she is president of the Newcomers Club of Greater Dunedin, an organization of about 100 women who get together to socialize, take trips and learn more about what’s happening in the area.

“Once or twice a month we do activities. We go boating. Dolphin touring in Dunedin, as well as up in Tarpon Springs. We go to museums. We go out to luncheons. We do crafts,” Schwartz said.

Members don’t have to live Dunedin, and some have been in the club for many years. Sharon Appler moved to Dunedin four years ago and is a former club president.

The month of May is recognized as Historic Preservation Month in America. The definition of preservation is the act of keeping a historic object or building in prime condition to prevent further decay or damage.

Many cities in America have buildings that have been saved and preserved and are now recognized as a representation of that community’s local history.

The community of Dunedin is no different than many cities in America and has saved many of its original buildings. At this time to honor the month of preservation, the city of Dunedin and the Historical Museum are working together to prepare new community preservation ordinances to help save other historic structures in the community that represent the town’s history. Dunedin has many historic structures throughout its community and three important buildings are listed on the Federal National Register of Historic Structures.

DUNEDIN - Development. The arts. Historical preservation. Recreation. Dunedin City Commissioners are beginning to lay the groundwork to have discussions with residents on these issues and other important topics as they prepare for the future.

In essence, city commissioners are interested in revamping their 12-year-old visioning plan.

The discussion stemmed from Commissioner John Tornga’s suggestion that city officials get input from groups that use the Dunedin Causeway and surrounding areas on what type of recreational improvements should be addressed in conjunction with plans to rebuild the two causeway bridges.

DUNEDIN - The late city attorney John Hubbard loved nature. So Dunedin city officials decided to pay tribute to him by renaming a small park at 330 Edgewater Drive, only steps away from where he used to live, in his honor.

Family members, local government officials and friends gathered April 1 for the dedication ceremony of the John Grant Hubbard Park.

A warm breeze rattled the palm fronds. Ospreys chirped overhead. A pelican flew by.

Hubbard served as city attorney from March 4, 1974, to April 1, 2011, when he retired from municipal practice.
