The Town of Davie is accepting pre-registration applications for a Temporary Release Program for large animals beginning June 1, 2011. The Town will open a neighborhood center to serve as holding area before and during a hurricane or natural disaster. In order to qualify for the temporary release program, you must be a Davie resident or your horse(s) must live in Davie.
Once a hurricane warning has been issued, a site located, will open for pre-registered horses only. This site will reopen to retrieve your horses when the winds have subsided to a minimum of 40 mph. You are encouraged to visit the site for yourself before completing your pre-registration form to determine whether you feel it is safer than your current situation. Remember, this turn-out site is for Davie residents or your horse(s) must live in Davie.
The cost for the program is $20.00 per horse. This fee must be included with your pre-registration. Pre-registration forms are available by contacting Bonnie Stafiej, Director of Special Projects at (954) 797-1163, firstname.lastname@example.org or you may obtain this information on-line. Download your application and other important information by visiting the Town of Davie’s web page at www.davie-fl.gov. Click on Hurricane Info and locate Temporary Large Animal Release Program.

After its successful 2009-2010 production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Director Idalmy M. Sanchez brings another musical interpretation on a childhood literary favorite. The play marvels in the travels of Stuart, a mouse, adopted by a New York City family, who embarks on a journey to find his friend Margalo (a bird scared away by the family cat). The mild-mannered mouse braves adventure and misfortune to find his friend – and more importantly himself. The story is a charming tale of friendship and acceptance.
