It's coming... (New construction photos March 10, 2019)

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!  Is just really all I can say!  Other than, I believe if I learned anything about my amazing Dad through ALL of this, and the humble, loving, kind, very unselfish, tough, Son-of-a-Gun, he was, he would think this is WAYYYY too much to have his name on!!!

I STILL can't believe this is happening and am so very honored, humbled, amazed and proud...

Ground-Breaking March 20, 2018

It finally happened everyone! This is REALLY coming to fruition and I'm so overwhelmed, humbled and amazed. Words just can not explain the way I feel about this wonderful place coming alive! My dad would be so happy and feel like it is way too much to have his name on! I already know he would be filled with emotion just as we are...

The ground-breaking is FINALLY scheduled!

I'm so very excited and just can't wait to see my Dad's name on that building and on the signs!  The ground-breaking is scheduled for March 20, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. at Tradition in Pt. St. Lucie, FL.  For more information please visit or
