Wrestling and voting were topics discussed during Tuesday morning’s Coffee and Conversation program at Pride Center at Equality Park.
Ty Alexander, a wrestler from Boston, announced he would be in the ring Thursday (7 to 10 p.m.) at The Manor Complex. Alexander is one of several hunky athletes scheduled to take part in the event. Tickets at the door are $25. The Manor Complex is located at 2345 Wilton Drive.
Elsewhere, Linda Broomfield spoke on behalf of the League of Women Voters of Broward County. Broomfield, chair of women’s issues, encouraged residents of Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, Lauderdale by the Sea, Coral Springs, Pompano Beach and Hallandale Beach to vote in the March 13 elections.
Pride Center Chief Executive Officer Robert Boo asked for a moment of silence to remember the 17 lives lost from the Parkland school shooting. Boo told the senior group it was time to hold elected officials accountable.
“If they do not listen to you on gun control then vote them out of office,” Boo said to a large round of applause.
Other speakers this week included: Testing Manager Dr. Robert Shore, Prevention Outreach Specialist Ebony Wilson and Patti Lynn with the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The program was sponsored by Premier Smile Center. Dr. Charmaine Johnson offered tips for a fresh smile.
