Annual Government Day covers local, state, federal agencies

Government is a source of considerable debate these days, and there’s no better way to get informed than at the annual Government Day.

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of Government Day in The Villages. The event is scheduled from 10am-1pm Saturday, Nov. 4, at Eisenhower Recreation Center, 3560 Buena Vista Blvd. Government Day is open to the public and residents of all communities.

Visitors can learn all about their local, state, and federal governments, and have the opportunity to gather information and get questions answered by experts.

The event typically includes representatives from The Villages Community Development Districts and CDD supervisory boards; The Villages Public Safety; Lake and Sumter county sheriff’s offices, county commissions, and county offices; the University of South Florida Health in The Villages; Seniors vs. Crime; the Southwest Florida Water Management District; a variety of state and federal agencies, such as the Florida Department of Elder Affairs; along with a politician or two.

Outside in the parking lot, visitors typically can peruse equipment displays from fire departments, law enforcement, emergency management, and the Coast Guard.
