Here are the top three stories today in Dunedin:

  1. Looking for a reason to whip out the colored pencils and markers this weekend? Local artist Essie Bergen has created a one-of-a-kind Dunedin coloring book suitable for all ages! They come in two sizes starting at just $ 10 and make the perfect stress-relieving activity for anyone who loves our small community. She offers free local pickup, or if you’re lazy like me, there are shipping options on her website. Buy them online now before they’re sold out, and be sure to check out her other adorable Dunedin-inspired work! (Essie Bergen Artwork via Facebook | Essie Bergen Artwork)
  2. The Dunedin Fine Arts Center is hosting a Virtual Conversation today at 11 am with Vickie Pierre, a Florida-based multi-media artist of Haitian heritage. Pierre’s creative process is informed and inspired by memory, fantasy, surrealism, popular culture and the decorative and ornamental arts. DFAC’s curatorial team will be speaking to Vickie about the ideas and materials used to make the multifaceted works featured in her solo exhibit currently on view in the Entel Family Gallery through August 14. Those interested must register in advance on the DFAC’s website. (DFAC)

  • Did you know that thanks to Operation Kid-Float, you can borrow a lifejacket or PFD for the day? Operation Kid-Float is conveniently available at all county-owned boat ramps. As a reminder, Florida law requires that one lifejacket per passenger be readily accessible on the vessel at all times, and children under age six must always wear one while underway.

  • The City of Dunedin Pipe Band has been hard at work for the last week preparing for its trip to Glasgow, Scotland to compete in the World Pipe Band Championships for the first time in Grade 1! Check out a short clip they posted from one of their last rehearsals before taking off. (City of Dunedin Pipe Band via Facebook)
