    Name: Florida’s Healing Waters Online Book Talk with Author Rick Kilby
    Date: April 15, 2021
    Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Florida author Rick Kilby will discuss his latest book, via Zoom, Florida’s Healing Waters: Gilded Age Mineral Springs, Seaside Resorts & Health Spas, Thursday, April 15, 6:00 pm. Registration is required with the Safety Harbor Public Library at https://events.safetyharborlibrary.org/events/floridas-healing-waters. Florida’s Healing Waters is an historical account of a little-known time in Florida history when tourists poured into the state in search of good health. The book, filled with rare photographs, vintage postcards, advertisements, and fascinating descriptions from over 100 years ago, explores the Victorian belief that water caused healing and rehabilitation. Rick Kilby shows how Florida’s natural wonders were promoted and developed as restorative designations for America’s emerging upper class, including Safety Harbor Resort & Spa’s Espiritu Santo Springs. Rick Kilby’s previous work, Finding the Fountain of Youth, is an award-winning account of how the myth of the fountain of youth has shaped our thinking from Ponce de Leon to Florida’s 21st century struggles to protect its waters. The Library is located at 101 2nd Street North, Safety Harbor. Call 724-1525 x 4112 for more information or visit www.SafetyHarborLibrary.com.

    "The Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce is it’s own little gem hidden in a treasure of the Safety Harbor Community. From the staff to the members, they have all been so generous, kind, helpful and supportive. They’ve helped me to grow my business from its beginning ten years ago and have been the first to offer guidance through the COVID-19 pandemic.  Thank you!!!!!"

    "We joined Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce when we opened Whistle Stop Grill & Bar 20 years ago!  They have been a wonderful source of promoting and supporting our business. The staff at the Chamber are warm and welcoming and encourage visitors to enjoy all Safety Harbor has to offer.  Thank you, Safety Harbor Chamber,."

    "Grow Financial has been around since 1955 when we opened as MacDill Federal Credit Union for military personnel. In an effort to expand our membership the decision was made to change our name in 2007 to Grow Financial Federal Credit Union. The Gulf to Bay store opened in December 2014 and one of the best decisions we made was to join The Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce, which has helped to increase traffic at this location. Thank you Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce."
