FROM THE FAMOUS FOX: COFFEE SUPPORTS CAUSE & DIVING INTO CORAL RESTORATION

Every second Friday of the month is Coral Restoration Day at Rainbow Reef Dive Center. Join Coral Restoration Foundation’s team of divers for an afternoon restoring our local coral reefs. TIFFANY DUONG/Keys Weekly

Hi friends! Reef the fox here with another weekly edition of “Reef’s Report.” I hope everyone had a great Halloween. Our human mom gave us tons of pumpkins and even put a pumpkin costume on Coral. I protested my costume so there will be no photos of that mess circulating the internet.

I have a big announcement: Our friends at One Grind KL came over the other day and we are teaming up with them to help raise money for all of us foxes here. They have created a special drink called the “Foxy Brown.” It is a brown sugar oat milk espresso drink and a portion of all proceeds from that drink will be donated to us once a month. How cool is that? If you have never visited One Grind, now is the time to do so. They are located at MM 98 between the Tom Thumb and Ballyhoo’s. In the next few weeks mom will be organizing a meet and greet with Coral, so stay tuned to our social media pages to find out when you can go and meet Coral. I did all of my public relations tours when I was a young fox and now that I’m going through puberty, it’s best I just stay out of the limelight for now.

Now for some fun events happening in the coming weeks. Rainbow Reef Dive Center is hosting

a Coral Restoration trip on Friday, Nov. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Every second Friday of the month is Coral Restoration Day at Rainbow Reef Dive Center. Join Coral Restoration Foundation’s team of divers for an afternoon restoring our local coral reefs. This is a unique opportunity to use your dive training as a tool to help create a healthier marine environment and to earn the Project Aware Coral Conservation specialty in the process. You can call to reserve at (305) 451-7171. I am all about restoring our Reef’s here, after all, my name says it all. If I liked to swim, I would go out and help, or at least cheer the divers on from the boat.

Florida Keys History and Discovery Center located at the Islander Resort is hosting “A Havana Night at the Museum” on Nov. 13 from 6 to 10 p.m. For one night only, guests will gather in the open air to visit 1940s Havana in its heyday as “America’s Playground” where tropical breezes flow and cabaret music excites. For more information and tickets, visit keysdiscovery.com/signature-event. I want to go. Mom needs to let me go. They are having casino tables and dominoes and I love knocking things off of tables.

Well friends, that is all for this week. Don’t forget to stop by and pick up your “Foxy Brown” drink that helps support me and the other five foxes that call Pawsitive Beginnings home. You can check us out at pawsitivebeginnings.org and I am still waiting for some emails from you all. Send to [email protected]

Until next time, Reef, over and out!
