Turkey Creek High School receives a new marker and the Plant City YMCA has a new app.

Turkey Creek School receives new marker

On Aug. 19 Turkey Creek High School received an official marker detailing the history of the school. The plaque was sponsored by the Hillsborough County Historical Advisory Council and the Turkey Creek High School Alumni.

The school operated under the “Strawberry School” concept, which allowed students to attend school from March until December so their annual vacation would fall during strawberry season. Many of the students would use that vacation to work in the fields or packing houses.


Plant City YMCA has a new app

The Plant City YMCA just released a new mobile app. Type ‘Tampa YMCA’ in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store to download. Some features are still being worked out and suggestions and feedback can be sent directly to the ‘Y’ at [email protected].

The app allows users to check out the schedules at the ‘Y’ as well as check who the instructors are for each class. You can do class reservations and membership check-ins from the app as well. Location, pool and Jr. Kid Zone/ Zeno Zone hours can also all be accessed from the app.
