Covering the Bases with the Mets December 2019


(INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC) (AUDIENCE CLAPPING)>>WELCOME, WELCOME TO “COVERING THE BASES WITH THE METS.” I’M TERISSA ARONSON, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE ST. LUCIE COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. IT’S OUR PLEASURE, OUR HONOR, TO DO THIS EVENT EVERY OTHER MONDAY AT NOON RIGHT HERE AT THE SLCTV STUDIOS. IT’S FREE, IT’S OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. WE THROW IN JIMMY JOHN’S SUBS, WE PICK UP SOME ICED TEA AND WE BRING ALONG OUR GOOD FRIEND PAUL TAGLIERI FROM THE METS.>>GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.>>IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>NOVEMBER FLEW BY.>>NOVEMBER FLEW BY SO FAST, I DIDN’T EVEN GET TO CHANGE.>>DID YOU ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS?>>YES.>>DID YOU RUN THE TURKEY TROT?>>THE TURKEY TROT, I CAN SAY WITH UNABASHED POSITIVITY, I DID NOT RUN THE TURKEY TROT.

CHARLOTTE CAME IN SECOND?>>CHARLOTTE CAME IN SECOND.>>THAT’S AWESOME.>>AND IF YOU BELIEVE THAT, I HAVE SOME TURKEY TO SELL YOU.>>YEAH. (LAUGHS) PLEASE WELCOME OUR GUEST. OF COURSE, I WANNA FIRST SAY THIS SHOW IS ALL ABOUT EVERYTHING THERE IS TO DO IN ST. LUCIE COUNTY. WE TAPE A LITTLE BIT AHEAD, SO WE’RE TAPING FOR DECEMBER.>>YES.>>AND WE HAVE WITH US, MICHELLE CAVALCANTI FROM MAIN STREET, FORT PIERCE AND WE’RE GONNA TALK ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN DOWNTOWN FORT PIERCE IN DECEMBER ‘CAUSE THERE’S A LOT. BUT I FIRST WANNA TOUCH ON MAIN STREET FORT PIERCE.>>OH, WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH. I APPRECIATE THAT. WELL, MAIN STREET FORT PIERCE, WE’RE A 501(C)(3), SO WE ARE A NON-PROFIT. WE WERE FORMED BY THE NATIONAL TRUST IN THE 1980S TO COME REALLY HELP REVITALIZE THE DOWNTOWN AREAS. THE MALLS CAME IN AND THERE WAS A LOT OF STOCK TO BE TAKEN UP DOWNTOWN. MAIN STREET FORT PIERCE HAS BEEN HERE SINCE 1988. WE ARE VERY PROUD OF THAT. THIS IS OUR 31ST YEAR IN EXISTENCE AND I THINK IF YOU LOOK AROUND IN FORT PIERCE, YOU SEE THE SUNRISE THEATER, THE MANATEE CENTER, OLD CITY HALL ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PROJECTS WE’VE BEEN A PART OF BRINGING ABOUT AND BRINGING BACK IN THIS AREA.>>AND IS DORIS TILLMAN, SHE’S BEEN THERE FROM–>>DORIS HAS BEEN THERE 28 YEARS, SO SHE WAS JUST AWARDED AT THE LAST MAIN STREET CONFERENCE THE GRAND DAME OF MAIN STREET, WHICH SHE SAYS IS JUST A REWARD FOR BEING OLD BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU IT’S REALLY BECAUSE SHE’S BEEN A PART OF SO MUCH OF THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT. I’M PRIVILEGED TO WORK WITH HER EVERY DAY AND LEARN FROM HER.>>SHE’S A GREAT LADY.>>SHE REALLY IS.>>I REALLY DO ADORE HER AND WE WOULD NOT HAVE A SUNRISE THEATER IF IT WEREN’T FOR DORIS AND THE EFFORTS OF MAIN STREET FORT PIERCE.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>BUT PAUL I KNOW IF FAMILIAR WITH FRIDAY FEST.>>ONCE IN A WHILE.>>EVERY NOW AND THEN?>>YEAH, IT ALWAYS RAINS, I’M PLANNING ON GOING DOWN AND–>>YOU KNOW, IT’S BEEN ONE OF THE WETTEST YEARS. WE’VE HAD SOME MONTHS LIKE THAT BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, WE FIGURATIVELY JUST HAD IN OCTOBER A REALLY GREAT FRIDAY FEST AND I’M SURE THAT THE FRIDAY FEST THAT WE HAD IN NOVEMBER WAS EXCELLENT AS WELL.>>AND IT WAS ON THE FIRST FRIDAY WITHOUT RAIN.>>YES, ABSOLUTELY. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IF I COULD CONTROL THE WEATHER, I COULD MONETIZE THAT HEARTILY BUT WE DO OUR BEST WITH WHAT THE WEATHER GOD GIVE US.>>IT’S LIKE A BASEBALL GAME.>>BASICALLY, YEAH.>>IF IT RAINS, IT RAINS, IT’S OUT OF OUR CONTROL.>>SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA COVER THE FIELD AND HUNKER DOWN ‘TIL IT PASSES.>>HOPEFULLY, IF IT HAPPENS ON A MONDAY NIGHT AND WE ALL GET TO GO HOME EARLY.>>YEAH, ON MONDAY.>>DON’T WANT IT TO RAIN ON THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY.>>WHEN YOU’RE GONNA BE PACKED. EVERYBODY PRAYS FOR RAIN ON MONDAY.>>EXACTLY.>>THEY DON’T WANT IT ON FRIDAY EITHER. BUT YOU GUYS JUST THROW A TARP OVER IT FOR A COUPLE OF INNINGS AND HOPE FOR IT TO PASS. YOU GUYS HAVE TO CALL IT EARLY.>>PLAN AHEAD.>>WE DO, WE DO, WE HAVE TO MAKE THE CALL EARLIER. WE’VE GOT VENDORS AND OTHER PEOPLE THAT WE IMPACT.>>LOT OF EXPECTATIONS, RIGHT.>>WE DO. SO, NOTHING IS QUITE SO PAINFUL AS WHEN IT STARTS TO CLEAR UP AT FOUR O’CLOCK.>>WHEN YOU’VE ALREADY CALLED EVERYBODY.>>YEAH, BUT I WILL ASSURE YOU THAT ANYBODY WHO WOULD LIKE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CALL WOULD BE HEARTILY WELCOMED.>>SO, FRIDAY FEST…>>TOUGH CALL TO MAKE RIGHT?>>EH, YOU KNOW.>>FRIDAY FEST IS A FESTIVAL. IT TAKES PLACE THE FIRST FRIDAY EVERY MONTH RIGHT DOWN THERE IN THE MARINA.>>IT DOES, DOWN AT MARINA SQUARE.>>ALONG THE WATER, THERE’S VENDORS AND BANDS.>>FOOD AND MUSIC, FAMILY FUN, LOTS OF GREAT SHOPPING. GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES AND NOT SO LOCAL. SOMETIMES YOU’LL COME IN AND YOU’LL SEE LOTS OF HOMEMADE STUFF. SOMETIMES IT’S COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES BUT THE FACT IS IT CHANGES A LITTLE EVERY MONTH AND IT’S HOME. IT’S THE LONGEST RUNNING STREET FESTIVAL ON THE TREASURE COAST AND WE’RE REALLY PROUD OF HOW MANY PEOPLE COME AND JOIN US EACH MONTH.>>IT’S A STAPLE.>>DOING GREAT THINGS.>>BUT WE’RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT CHRISTMAS. WHAT DO YOU GUYS GOT PLANNED? MAIN STREET REALLY IS THE GO-TO ORGANIZATION FOR PUTTING TOGETHER LITTLE SMALL FESTIVALS AND THINGS FOR DOWNTOWN. OTHER PEOPLE DO IT BUT MAIN STREET IS REALLY PROFESSIONAL AT IT AND YOU’VE GOT SOMETHING GOING ON FOR CHRISTMAS, WHAT IS IT?>>WE DO, SO THIS IS THE 31ST YEAR OF SIGHTS AND SOUNDS ON 2ND STREET. IT’S A HOLIDAY FESTIVAL AND PARADE. EACH YEAR THE THEME CHANGES AND THERE’S, BASICALLY, IT’S A CONTEST FOR GUTS AND GLORY. BUT EACH YEAR WE DO PICK SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. THE FACT IS IT’S JUST MEANT TO BRING PEOPLE OUT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. THE FESTIVAL ITSELF GOES FROM 1:00 TO 3:30 ON SECOND STREET.>>OKAY.>>FOR THE KIDS ACTIVITIES, THE ARTS AND CRAFTS CONTINUE UNTIL FIVE O’CLOCK. THE BIG EVENT AT FOUR O’CLOCK IS THE CHRISTMAS PARADE. THIS YEAR OUR THEME IS CHRISTMAS BY LAND, AIR OR SEA. A LITTLE NOD TO ALL THE GROWTH HAPPENING AROUND HERE.>>OKAY, YEP, THE PORT, THE AIRPORT.>>EXACTLY, EXACTLY. WE’VE GOT A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING. SO HOPEFULLY WE’LL SEE SOME VERY INSPIRED FLOATS. I’M SURE WE WILL.>>ARE WE GONNA SEE A PLANE? LIKE A FLY AWAY PLANE?>>I KIND OF THINK WE MIGHT. I REALLY DO.>>I HOPE SO.>>I ASKED THEM.>>JUST BEING DRAGGED DOWN SECOND STREET.>>EXACTLY.>>YOU’LL PROBABLY SEE THAT.>>YEAH, WE’VE GOT BOATS THAT HAVE BEEN IN IT IN THE PAST. I IMAGINE WE’LL SEE SOME TRAINS AS WELL. A LITTLE POLAR EXPRESS ACTION THERE.>>THERE YOU GO.>>LOTS OF THE LOCAL MARCHING BANDS PARTICIPATE. IT’S AN EVENT THAT WE COULDN’T DO WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE SUNRISE CITY KIWANIS WHO STEP IN AND LARGELY TAKE PART IN ACTUALLY ORGANIZING THE PHYSICAL PARADE THE DAY OF WITHOUT THEIR VOLUNTEER, JUST CREW GETTING OUT THERE AND HELPING US PUSH EVERYONE ALONG, WE COULD NOT GET THE OVER 100 VEHICLES AND FLOATS THAT PARTICIPATE.>>WE WERE IN IT LAST YEAR.>>YOU WERE?>>WE HAD A PART IN IT.>>OH YEAH. I REMEMBER THAT, IT WAS GREAT. SO THIS YEAR THAT IS DECEMBER 8TH, I DIDN’T SAY THAT BEFORE.>>DECEMBER 8TH, WHICH IS A SUNDAY.>>IT IS A SUNDAY. GENERALLY IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THE FIRST SUNDAY IN DECEMBER. THIS YEAR IT FELL A LITTLE FUNNY WHERE IT WAS ON THANKSGIVING WEEKEND.>>THAT’S RIGHT, YEAH.>>YEAH.>>THANKSGIVING WAS A LITTLE LATER.>>YEAH, WE BUMPED IT UP TO…>>IT WAS A LITTLE LATER.>>BUT IT’S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO JUST HAVE, IT’S JUST A GREAT FAMILY EVENT, A GREAT FRIEND EVENT. WE WELCOME ALL THE BUSINESSES TO COME OUT AND PROVIDE AN ACTIVITY. THE RESTAURANTS TO COME OUT IN FRONT OF THEIR BUSINESSES. A LOT OF LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS, ESPECIALLY FOR LIKE THE CARNIVAL AND FESTIVAL PERIOD, WILL COME OUT AND PROVIDE A FREE ACTIVITY FOR THE KIDS. WE’RE WORKING ON A KIDS CARNIVAL THIS YEAR. IN THE PAST, WE’VE HAD LIVE SNOW, WE’VE HAD PONY RIDES. EVERY YEAR IT CHANGES A LITTLE BIT BASED ON WHO’S INVOLVED. THE IMPORTANT THING IS AT FOUR O’CLOCK, THE PARADE STARTS. THE CITY OF FORT PIERCE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS HUGELY INSTRUMENTAL IN MAKING SURE IT GOES OFF SMOOTHLY AND SAFELY, WHICH IS REALLY MASSIVE FEAT. AT THE END OF THE PARADE, THE MAYOR COMES UP ALONG WITH SANTA AND THEY LIGHT THE CHRISTMAS TREE AT THE ROUNDABOUT.>>OH, VERY NICE. IT’S A HUGE, BEAUTIFUL, CHRISTMAS TREE.>>IT REALLY IS AND IT’S JUST A MAGICAL AFTERNOON AND EVENING.>>YOU GUYS WERE IN THAT PARADE. ARE YOU GONNA BE IN THE PARADE THIS YEAR?>>I WILL, DECEMBER 8TH IS GONNA BE TOUGH. I HAVE WINTER MEETINGS.>>YOU WERE GONE.>>WE LEAVE FOR THE WINTER MEETINGS THIS YEAR ON DECEMBER 8TH.>>OH, ALL RIGHT.>>BUT OUR CREW WILL BE THERE.>>OKAY.>>OUR CREW WILL BE THERE.>>AND WE’LL TRY TO GET A CHAMBER FLOAT, WE’LL TRY TO GET SOMETHING TOGETHER. I KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF FLOATS AND A BIG NOD TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT PARTICIPATE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LINE UP EARLY, YOU GOTTA WAIT IN LINE FOR A LONG TIME–>>YOU KNOW, THE KIWANIS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF REALLY FINESSING THAT PROCESS. LAST YEAR WE WERE ABLE TO SMOOTH OUT AND SHORTEN A LOT OF THE SIGNUP PROCESS. SO IT’S NOT AS STRENUOUS AS IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN THE YEARS PAST. BUT IT IS STILL, YEAH, YOU KIND OF HAVE TO SHOW UP AND GET IN LINE AND YOU KNOW, BUT YOU CAN LEAVE ONE PERSON THERE. THIS YEAR WE’RE REALLY EXCITED BECAUSE THE LIONS CLUB IS OUR GRAND MARSHALL AND I KNOW THEY’RE PUTTING TOGETHER A MASSIVE FLOTILLA.>>OKAY, WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT–>>I KNOW LAST YEAR WE WERE LINING UP AND I’M THINKING, HOW IS THIS ALL GONNA HAPPEN?>>YEAH.>>BUT YOU’RE RIGHT. IT HAPPENS AND IT WAS SMOOTH AND EVERYBODY GETS THROUGH IT IN A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME BEFORE, THEN SUN GOES DOWN AND THEY LIGHT THE TREE AND IT’S AWESOME.>>IT IS. PARADES ARE A DIFFICULT UNDERTAKING. I CAN TELL YOU THAT ANYBODY WHO’S PUT ONE ON CAN ATTEST TO THAT. SO IT REALLY JUST TAKES THE STRENGTH OF WILL FROM A COMMUNITY FROM ALL ANGLES TO SAY WE’RE GONNA MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND EVERYBODY’S GOING TO DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO DO THAT.>>AND EVERYBODY’S GONNA DO WHAT THEY SAY.>>YES.>>THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT PART. ALL RIGHT, WELL THANK YOU FOR THAT, MICHELLE. I APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK THAT YOU GUYS DO IN DOWNTOWN. YOU’RE A MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATION JUST LIKE US BUT WE PARTNER TOGETHER AND WE WORK TOGETHER WHEN WE CAN AND I APPRECIATE THAT, I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT.>>WELL, THANKS YOU SO MUCH.>>AND WE UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY’RE DOING AND WHAT THE NEED IS IN FORT PIERCE. SO, A WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION, WONDERFUL EVENTS AND THANKS TO MICHELLE FOR BEING WITH US TODAY, RIGHT?>>THANK YOU.>>WE’RE GONNA TAKE A LITTLE BREAK. LAUREN’S GONNA COME BACK UP AND WE’RE GOING TO DO A LITTLE GAME.>>GAME SHOW HOST.>>I KNOW, LAUREN’S OUR VANNA OR PAT. WELL, SHE’S MORE OF THE ALEX TREBEK OF IT ALL, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU. SO WE’RE GONNA TALK ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN DECEMBER, BUT WE’LL TAKE A BREAK EVERYBODY. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. (AUDIENCE CLAPPING) (INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC) (INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC)>>WELCOME BACK TO “COVERING THE BASES WITH THE METS.” I’M TERISSA ARONSON HERE WITH MY CO-HOST PAUL TAGLIERI.>>IF THEY ONLY KNEW WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT WHEN WE WENT TO BREAK.>>I KNOW, IT’S THE BEST PART OF THE SHOW THAT WE CAN’T AIR.>>BECAUSE IT’S THE BREAK.>>YES, I KNOW IT. AND THEN OF COURSE WE HAVE LAUREN DEACETIS WITH US FROM THE METS. SHE’S GONNA HELP US OUT WITH THE GAME THAT WE’RE GONNA PLAY. AFTER WE TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME.>>SHORT MONTH.>>IT’S A SHORT MONTH.>>GREAT MONTH.>>IT’S CHRISTMAS. IT’S COOL AND BEAUTIFUL, SUNNY.

GARY IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT LITTER AND HE HAS AN ORGANIZATION CALLED PEOPLE SERIOUS ABOUT LITTER. HE HAS WORKED TOGETHER WITH THE ROTARY CLUB AND THEY’RE DOING AT THE PORT ST. LUCIE CIVIC CENTER A LITTER SYMPOSIUM ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7TH FROM 9:00 A.M. TO NOON. THEY HAVE SOME SPEAKERS LINED UP. BILL PERSONS IS A DOCTOR FROM KAISER UNIVERSITY AND THEY’RE REALLY JUST GONNA TALK ABOUT HOW TO HELP, WHAT THE EFFECTS ARE AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LITTER. I APPRECIATE GARY FOR DOING THAT BECAUSE IT’S AN IMPORTANT CAUSE HERE IN THE COMMUNITY. SO A WHOLE SYMPOSIUM ON HOW TO HELP AND WHY YOU SHOULD HELP.>>PEARL HARBOR DAY.>>PEARL HARBOR DAY, THAT’S RIGHT, HE SAID, “IT’S PEARL HARBOR DAY.” SO THAT’S GOING ON AND THEN OF COURSE THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAS OUR ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY, CHRISTMAS IN THE CITY WHICH FEATURES OUR AMBASSADORS, WHICH IS THE VOLUNTEER ARM OF THE ST. LUCIE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. THAT’S GONNA BE AT DYERS CHEVROLET AGAIN, WHERE EVERY MONTH THEY MAKE THE DYER DIFFERENCE. DID YOU KNOW THEY GIVE $3,000 AWAY TO A NONPROFIT IN ST.
