SEMINOLE - For years, Rotarian George Bessler financially supported Rotary International’s program to eradicate polio around the world.

This year the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake member and retired Seminole fire chief decided to take his support a step further. In February, he traveled to India for a week to assist the program in any way he could, including by administering immunizations.

“Like most Rotarians, I did not just want to be involved putting money toward projects; I also wanted to be physically involved,” Bessler said. “It’s one thing to get involved with donations.

SEMINOLE - The Kiwanis Club of Seminole is known for its work to support children in the community through programs such as Horses for the Handicapped and Every Child a Swimmer to its Key Club at Seminole High School, its Builders Club at Seminole Middle School and K Kids at Bauder Elementary School.

SEMINOLE - One year ago the Seminole Historical Society moved into its new digs at the community building at Seminole City Park.

The museum had been years in the making for the organization, which has long sought a home for its artifacts and information about the city’s past. Now after a year of hard work and assistance from its board members and the public, the museum is nearly complete, with all exhibits just about ready for display. The next step is letting residents know that the museum is open for business.

SEMINOLE - Studio Movie Grill, an upscale movie theater that serves food and drinks, has expressed interest in serving as an anchor in the Seminole City Center development.

The proposed 42,000-square-foot theater at the site of the former Seminole Mall would have nine screens and 1,267 seats.

The owners of the mall, North American Development Group, updated the City Council on the theater potentially coming to Seminole in an April 12 workshop. Since moving forward on development plans last summer, NADG has had a difficult time securing a theater for that location. There are several leases with potential tenants that are contingent on there being a theater at the mall. So the developers felt a sense of urgency in securing Studio Movie Grill.

SEMINOLE - Frederick Stedman Snow III, known as Ted Snow to his friends, died at home Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

Ted was born February 26, 1946 and lived in Wellesley, Massachusetts until 1965, at which time he moved to Seminole Florida, where he lived until his death.

After moving to Florida, he purchased his own tractor-trailer rig, and enjoyed time on the open road before returning to his enduring love of carpentry. He also later worked part-time as a bar-back at the Porpoise Pub in Seminole. It was there that he enjoyed the friendship of many patrons and met his fiancée, Tammy Roland, the love of his life.

SEMINOLE - The city of Seminole’s Recreation Department works hard throughout the year to bring residents a variety of well-attended activities: the annual Pow Wow events, sports and classes, Halloween and Christmas events.

But Duane Crandall, recreation program coordinator, noticed one area in which the department was lacking - the arts.

“We offer everything else,” he said.

So he got to work organizing the first annual Art in the Park event, which is set for Saturday, April 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Seminole City Park, 7464 Ridge Rd.

SEMINOLE - A building permit has been issued for a Holiday Inn Express at the 60-acre mixed-use development at Bay Pines. Construction of the hotel is underway, City Manager Anne Toney-Deal told the City Council at its March 22 meeting.

“The earth is currently moving at that site on Bay Pines in the Walmart shopping center,” she said. “This will be a major plus for our community.”

The planned five-story hotel will have 121 rooms. Toney-Deal called the council “visionaries” for requesting a hotel be included in the development. This made it easy for a hotel to move into the location, she said.
