Judie Mackie is back this week let you know about some of the things to do on Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, Florida, this first week in June, 2009. This is the week to go fishing, play some golf or tennis, or just head to the beach for some rest and relaxation. Our weather should finally get back to normal with only a 30% chance of scattered afternoon thunderstorms with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the low 70s overnight.
The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival continues this week with a candlelight concert at Fort Clinch on Monday night and tickets are only $25.00.
Tuesday is Politician Night in Fernandina Beach with a regularly scheduled City Commissioner meeting at 6:00 PM. Our local heritage is up for discussion as the city prepares to enter Fernandina Beach into the National Preserve America program‚ and at 5 pm there is a workshop for the city golf course, discussing concerns over finances‚ì of course this comes right after the city approved some ungodly amount of money to be spent on Mole Crickets. Both meetings are held at the city commission’s chambers, downtown on Ash Street.
To those that live in this area of NE Florida, summer on Amelia Island officially starts when school lets out and Wednesday is the last day of school for Nassau County students, and yes, Mom, it really is a half day of school!
