Vol. 1, No. 53 December 6, 2020
The ribbon cutting to mark the beginning of FreeBee's service to South Miami happened on December 3rd. Although few residents were in attendance, due ceremony was observed:
FreeBee is a free transportation service offered by the City of South Miami to its residents. It is in place of the circulator bus which had very few riders. FreeBee will take people from their homes to downtown, to the hospital, to the MetroRail, to the Library, or to a doctor's office. And back again. If you see a FreeBee on the road, you can wave to have it stop for you. [Going to and from a friend's house, or outside the City limits is not part of the service.] One of the FreeBee cars is wheelchair accessible. The other two hold up to five people. This leaves a lot of space for social distancing. If you don't have the app, you can call 855-918-3733.
Two sources of food are available during December.
South Miami Library is not one of the libraries where this program is ongoing. To find a library which is taking part click here.
Every Saturday at 11:am, free food distribution will take place at Higher Praise and Worship Center, 6610 SW 59th Place.
Besides really healthy things to eat, the Farmers' Market has some good ideas for gifts. Dresses, beautiful leather goods, jams, sauces, orchids, and more: all could be things to delight the important people in your life. Every Saturday from 9 am until 2 pm in the South Miami Library parking lot. If you order online (http://www.urbanoasisproject.org/shop-online.html), the food you want will be boxed and waiting for you to pick up on Saturday.
