We asked for legal assistance often times and Elena helped not only to our Family but many members of our parish.
The area now known as Tampa, Florida first started as an Indian fishing village. Native Americans referred to the place as “Tanpa” meaning “sticks of fire.”
A Spanish explorer passed through the waters of Tampa Bay on his gold expedition, but after he left, the area was left alone for 2 centuries.
During the United States' war on Spain at the turn of the century, Tampa became the point of departure for troops on their way to Cuba. A colonel named Theodore Roosevelt, who would later become President, created his team of “Rough Riders” at his Tampa camp.
