Way to go Tiffani! You are a great representative of Temple Terrace, not only geographicallyRead More speaking, but by your spirit of determination and good works to the community. Good luck with your Crisis Center project!

Why isn't there just a Ms. Temple Terrace? No offense to the "plus" crowd, but why isn'tRead More there a pageant, and if there is, why isn't it publicized?
Tiffani Barner July 5, 2013 at 03:11 pm
Thanks again Jamie for the support and kind words. The fundraiser is going well thus far and I hopeRead More to continue to garner exposure for the Crisis Center. I'm confident our community will rally to assist. @Alex, the pageant was state wide. I represented Temple Terrace in the state competition for a chance to compete at Nationals this July... This pageant is an opportunity for plus size women to shine and represent positive human causes from all over the US. With that being said, a city pageant for all residents to compete sounds like a great idea and should be created if one is not already in existence. I would hope the spirit by which I competed can be continued, so that our community can support great deeds and volunteerism as my pageant showcased. Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

Thanks for the note, Cheri. I think it's great that the city knows they can count on the Garden ClubRead More for help. Hopefully that is now clear to the residents of Temple Terrace who may not realize how that relationship works. I'm going to have to learn more about compost, maybe then I'll have better luck around my yard!

The City of Temple Terrace does such a great job of landscaping, especially in the medians. A fewRead More of my Temple Terrace Garden Club comrades and I were just talking about this yesterday, noting that they can grow Crepe Myrtles better than anyone. We were also commenting on how beautiful the flowering plants are that the City planted along 56th Street. The roundabout was just one area that needed some help. So the title of this article is certainly not accurate. I commend the City of Temple Terrace for making an effort to beautify our City!! Hats off to you! It has been such a pleasure working with the City of Temple Terrace on this project, they are great to work with. We will keep you posted as the roundabout evolves.

Is it possible for us local gardeners to get any fertilizer/compost from Busch Gardens or the GardenRead More Club? Tanks Tim Vadnais

This article caught my eye as I was wondering what use would be made of these precious remains ofRead More part of our Temple Terrace history. My husband and I sifted through the dust and rubble to retrieve some of the colorful bits and pieces of tile and would like to donate these if they would be used for a charitable fundraiser. The idea of stepping stones appeals to me, as well as a smaller memento, like a creatively designed and decorated paper weight. In any case, a concern about such examples of historical preservation strengthens a sense of community. Thanks to Patch for getting this information out. Caroline Barnard

@ Caroline - Please bring any tile donations to Business Ink Printing 8834 N. 56th St. 813-988-4656.Read More Dave and I have been active in the project and will get them where they need to be. Thanks so much!

Thanks to our business partners and everyone who has donated food so far! Check your pantry to seeRead More if there's any food you might be able to donate. This is such a great cause.

It's so nice when several neighborhoods can come together and work as one.It shows the rest of theRead More Tampa Bay area that when great people work together, anything is possible. Big thanks go out to Dana Carver and Cheri Donohue for putting this enormous job together. It shows what can be done when great minds and neighbors come together and work as one. Just a few months ago Jimmy Ciaccio of Gaspar's Patio Bar & Grill helped organize the edging of the roads around the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club and now this. What's next? A big thanks to all those who make the extra effort to help our community. Maybe I missed it, but could we have a sign up sheet or something the next time we put something like this together, so more of us could schedule ourselves time to be a part of this great group?
