Share your story of resilience and kindness in the community, and we’ll share that with others. We’re thinking of our community during this time in our history and know we will keep Lake Wales strong by getting through this together. Tell us about our brave healthcare workers, nice things you or your neighbors have done, and other stories you have experienced and witnessed in our community. Let us know how you and others are keeping Lake Wales safe and strong.
