Five Things to Know Today: Friday, Nov. 18
It's Friday! Pay tribute to a young boy who touched many hearts and enjoy the talents of our wise senior citizens.
1) Expect mostly sunny skies, with a high near 75. Wind gusts will get as high as 24 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
3) Dunedin Patch editor Katie Dolac enjoyed explaining her job as a journalist to fourth- and fifth-graders at San Jose Elementary School on Thursday morning. Her favorite moment? When she asked fourth-graders what they use their newspaper for, the first student answered, "Recycle it!"
4) Beso Del Sol Resort tributes its favorite young departed visitor with a sunset candlelight vigil at 5 p.m. today. Jacob McConahay, an Indiana boy who recently passed away of cancer at the age of 7, wanted to visit the resort as his dying wish. His grandparents, who own a home in Dunedin, will be there to see a small memorial installed in his honor. All are welcome to attend.
5) Watch our area's older citizens compete "American Idol"-style at the sixth annual Senior Talent Show at the Dunedin Community Center. Cost is $5. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. (Bonus: Dunedin Patch will help judge the event. If you go, be sure to say hello!)
