Jumping Jack Flash comes to mind. Do you know that song? Rolling Stones.
I have placed this on my Felisia Hill site so you can see some of the amazing talent we have. I love to meet people that come here because they have seen interesting internet posts. tripadvisor has put some interesting things about Pahokee as well.
I just don’t want to be known as Felisia Hill the City Commissioner, unless I can AS Felisia Hill the ambassador of Pahokee and Belle Glade..and of course you know we love Football go #bluedevils.
Thanks for reading and sharing and commenting on my blogs. This is new to me but it has been interesting.
Have a great day!
Pahokee’s residents, according to the 2010 Census, are 56% African-American; almost all the rest are Hispanic, primarily Mexicans or descendants of Mexicans. In 2018, the Mayor, Kenneth W. Babb, and the other four members of the City Commission are all African-American.
As an isolated community, Pahokee is a town where “everyone knows everybody”, and has a strong sense of community.
Pahokee is also known for it’s Rabbit Hunting. The speed and agility of the hunters is illustrated in this brief Adidas ad. It kind of explains why so many of the Football players are so fast have come out of Pahokee.
T (Throwback Thursday) So I found these Vintage ads about Pahokee
If you have read any of my previous posts, you may know that I have briefly explained the name “Pahokee.” If this is the first post you are reading, here is a little information.
The name “Pahokee” means ‘grassy waters’ in the Creek language. Local residents refer to Pahokee as “The Muck”, which refers to the mineral-rich dark soil in which sugar cane, citrus fruits, and corn are grown by agribusinesses. In the 1930s, it was known as the “Winter Vegetable Capital of the World”. (source)
The “Muck” is great for growing and that is what they did. A lot of Celery growing. Other vegetables were grown too!
