Thomas Hardy, Vero Beach, FL Publishes The Exclusive Life of Reba K. Williams, a Parakeet

Reba K. and Danny “Happy” Williams

Thomas Hardy, nine years old.

Children Need Time to Have an Imagination

It's hilarious!”

— Sergio Mota

VERO BEACH, FL, USA, August 1, 2019 / — "An imagination is something you own. It is yours, and yours alone. No one can give you an imagination and no one can take yours away,” Thomas Hardy says to young readers, publishing book one of The Exclusive Life of Reba K. Williams, a Parakeet.

Thomas Hardy was a little boy in Hollis, New Hampshire when he dreamed up adventures for his pet parakeet who shared his room. It was a time when television was only an idea and little boys were encouraged to use their imagination to pass the time.

Reba K. Williams, a parakeet from Beverly Hills, California, is admired and respected by all who know her.

Married to a movie star and then to a roly-poly plastic man she calls “Happy,” Reba is sophisticated with expensive jewelry and famous friends. But when she moves to a farm in New England, she finds herself called upon to help her husband campaign for the governorship of Vermont.

"Perhaps by reading these books, you will begin to understand how much fun it is to have an imagination, to dream something up and then write it down. Take some time to write a story like Reba and Happy."

The Exclusive Life of Reba K. Williams, a Parakeet is available at, Barnes and Noble and other retailers.

Clearwater Community Volunteers Gives Foster Children Get a Head Start At Back-To-School Bash

On July 27th, foster and adoptive families lined up at the Back-to-School Bash organized by the Clearwater Community Volunteers at Osceola Park for 240 backpacks each with school supplies.

Studies show that children who do not have the school supplies they need perform more poorly in school.”

— Michael Soltero, Director of the CCV Center

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 1, 2019 / — On Saturday 27th July the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) held a Back-to-School Bash benefiting foster and adoptive families in the Tampa Bay area. Over 200 families attended the event and each child left with a backpack filled with school supplies.

Backpack for all ages were handed out to foster and adoptive children by CCV Volunteers, with designs such as unicorns, rockets, and dozens of colors to chose from, each child was able to find their match. The backpacks were filled with school supplies such as pencil cases, color pencils, erasers, crayons, notebook and plenty of other essential supplies.

“Studies show that children who do not have the school supplies they need perform more poorly in school,” said Michael Soltero, Director of the CCV Center, “Add that the children in the foster care system change families up to eight times a year and you have the reasoning behind the need of a back to school bash specifically dedicated to foster and adoptive children.”

Festivities began with a colorful performance from Groupo Folklorico Mahetzi, a non-profit organization dedicated to safeguarding Mexican traditional dances and culture. In addition to the backpack drive, families enjoyed face painting, jumping in a bouncy house and a carousel. Crowds quickly gathered around the reptile zoo featuring all sorts of creatures including giant millipedes and lizards. The bravest kids also had the opportunity to take a picture with a giant yellow python.

A live performance by the Flag Band inspired some of the kids to get on the stage and share their talents with the rest of the attendees.

The next event hosted by CCV will be the 16th Annual Fashions with Flair Fashion Show which will be held in the Fort Harrison Auditorium, 210 S Fort Harrison Avenue, Clearwater, FL 33755, on September 21st. Proceeds will benefit the Police Athletic League and Winter Wonderland.
