Dunkin’ Donuts celebrated the one-year re-opening of its location at 1310 SW. Palm Coast Parkway on Saturday, May 19, according to a news release.

The store re-opened in May 2017 after a fire destroyed it in 2016. The store was rebuilt with the help of the community.

The new location, open from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m., features a drive-through, free Wi-Fi and indoor seating.

$3,000 donated to Flagler Beach Police Department and Flagler County Emergency Services

Jamie Bourdeau, owner of Beach Front Grille in Flagler Beach, announced that locals have raised $3,000 for Flagler County Emergency Services and the Flagler Beach Police Department, according to a news release. The organizations will split the money equally.

The money was raised at the Irish Open Golf Outing — despite not one ball being hit. A thunderstorm prohibited players from teeing off. However, the group still raised the money from players’ fees, sponsorships and raffles. The sponsors were Beach Front Grille, MediQuick and the ICU nurses at Florida Hospital Flagler.

“These funds are going to be used for some updated raid gear for our police officers,” Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney said in a release. “What we have now is antiquated and hot, and with summer right around the corner, we are looking forward to utilizing some more modern weather gear.”
