Blue Lights To Honor Cindy De Filippo

jupiterlighthouse_300x250

Jupiter: The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is “going blue” this weekend in honor of our friend and supporter, Cindy De Filippo, the indispensable assistant to two County Commissioners– Karen Marcus and Hal Valeche.

 

Cindy is that shining example of a public servant – someone who affected great change and influenced the lives of both whole neighborhoods and individuals alike. If you live or lived in Palm Beach County chances are good that she improved the quality of your life. That was evident in the remarkable outpouring of grief at her visitation and funeral this past weekend, where hundreds of people from every walk of life stood in line to embrace her family and let them know how she touched their lives.

 

She made a real difference at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum – always quick to respond with help and support for any project. Cindy was instrumental in the creation of the federally designated Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area, a part of her lasting legacy. Cindy was also involved in the cleanup work in smaller neighborhood natural areas, rolling up her sleeves, literally, to help beautify and remove excess debris. She valued the unique history of this area and worked with us to protect and share it, especially the heritage of the Limestone Creek neighborhood.

 

The blue lights on the Lighthouse this weekend reflect our loss, our respect and our hope that all who view them will think of Cindy and the ability of one small, quiet person to make a real difference in the world.
