Free For All Fridays: Host David Ayres welcomes Laura Gilvarry and Florida Hospital Flagler Foundation board chairman Tony Papandrea to talk about diabetes, Carl Laundrie to talk about the Creekside Festival and Veterans Day activities, and Gayatri Debi, a physician who just published “The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias,” with a commentary by FlaglerLive Editor Pierre Tristam, all starting just after 9 a.m.
Friday: Flagler County Veterans Day Ceremony: at 10 a.m., featuring Army National Guard Brigadier General Mike Canzoneri. Canzoneri, assistant adjutant general, commands nearly 10,000 soldiers and has management authority over all Florida Army National Guard programs. He is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he served as the Executive Officer for the 3-124th Infantry Battalion, and led Operation Inspired Gambit in Pakistan as the commander of the 1-153rd Cavalry Squadron. The “Flagler County Colonel Gary E. DeKay Veteran of the Year” award recipient will be announced. Participating groups include: American Legion Post 115, Amvets Post 113, DAV Chapter 86, Italian American War Veterans Post 7, Marine Corps League 876, Military Officers Association of America, Military Order of the Purple Heart 808, Flagler County Veterans Service Office, VFW Post 8696, and the Knights of Columbus 2264 Color Corps, as well as local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The event will be held at the flagpole of the Government Services Building, 1769 E. Moody Boulevard, Bunnell.
Friday: The Flagler County Public Library Palm Coast Branch holds a White Table Ceremony at noon to honor service men and women who are prisoners of war or missing in action. (There are currently no known Americans who are prisoners of war, from any war, including Vietnam, Korea and both Gulf wars.) The ceremony represents the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines held prisoner or missing in action from all wars. While it is applicable for missing-in-action soldiers, the ceremony also perpetuates the false notion that there are POWs. The library is located at 2500 Palm Coast Parkway Northwest. The table and ceremony script will remain set up at the library through Monday, November 13.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: Palm Coast’s City Repertory Theatre presents Jon Robin Baitz’s “Other Desert Cities,” by the playwright who wrote for the critically acclaimed TV shows “The West Wing” and “Brothers and Sisters.” The play was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Set in 2004 in Palm Springs, Calif., “Other Desert Cities” tells the story of a writer who upsets her conservative parents when she visits them and announces she is writing a family memoir – one that will explore the suicide of her older brother Henry, a protestor who was involved in the bombing of an Army recruiting center during the Vietnam War. At 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10-11 and 17-18, and at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 12 and 19 at City Repertory Theatre’s venue in City Market Place, 160 Cypress Point Parkway, Suite B207, Palm Coast. Tickets are $20 adults, $15 students. For more information or tickets, call the CRT box office at 386-585-9415 or easily book tickets online here.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: “Plaza Suite,” the Neil Simon comedy, at the Flagler Playhouse. Three couples successively occupy Suite 719 at the Plaza Hotel, New York City. A wry tale of a marriage in tatters, followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer looking for sexual diversion, and finally, a couple fighting to persuade their nervous daughter to leave the safety of the bathroom and go to the hotel’s ballroom to get married. This funny yet thought provoking show has become a classic. To book tickets, go online (flaglerplayhouse.org) or call the Box Office (386-586-0773) while tickets are still available. Nov. 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. The playhouse is at 301 E Moody Blvd, Bunnell.

Hal Mettee (U.S. Army Air Corps) as special guests participating in this year’s wreath ceremony.

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review.
