The SCC Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the Family FUN Fest and FUNdraiser for Scott Clark, a local small business owner who recently suffered a life-changing, motorcycle accident.

It will take place Saturday at the chamber, 1651 Sun City Center Plaza, from 4 to 7 p.m.
Bring along your children and grandkids. There will be food, music by DJ Gary, silent auction, prizes and raffles; a scavenger hunt; face painting; bouncy house; corn-hole toss; and more. Burgers, hot dogs, sides and beverages will be $1 each.
To donate a raffle or auction item or make a donation, stop by the chamber or call (813) 634-5111.
Valentino & Winslow to present music of Cole Porter
The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. W., will present Anything Goes - An Evening with Eileen Valentino and Cole Porter on Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
Eileen Valentino started her singing career at Disneyland, toured with dancer Juliet Prowse, and then left to create her own act opening for stars in Atlantic City and packing cabarets and theaters in New York City. Relatively new to Sun City Center, she performed recently in "Love on a Bench" with the Performing Arts Company at Rollins Theater.
Valentino will be accompanied by keyboardist Robert Winslow. A donation of $5 is requested at the door.
For additional information about this and other concerts and recitals at the church, contact Jeff Jordan at (813) 634-2539.
Patriots Club shows its pride
The Sun City Center Patriots Club gave out about 450 miniature American flags during the Memorial Day Remembrance at the Kings Point Borini Theatre. It also solicited donations for the Veterans Rehabilitation Program at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital.
The club installed the Stars & Stripes along State Road 674 throughout the community for Memorial Day and will leave them in place through July 4.
To aid in retrieving flags that may come down, special tags were attached to the poles which read, "If found, please call 642-2020." The club's officers hope this will help lessen the loss of flags that blow down during storm season. If you happen to find any down, please pick them up and call that number.
The club urges residents and business owners not to fly a torn, tattered or badly faded flag. They can be turned in to the Community Association Office from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. any weekday. The receptionist will ensure that the flag is given to a local Scout troop for proper disposal. For further information, call (813) 642-9555.
