President’s Corner March 2017
Hello Everyone…barely getting this one in before March ends!
Much thanks to VP Colette Florido for facilitating an excellent, albeit, rainy evening at the impressive Chihuly Collection. I think all would agree that having that venue in Tampa Bay is a big plus and for all those that attended please remember to visit the Hot Shoppe with the tickets distributed that evening. I am sure seeing the action of glass artwork production is equally as impressive as viewing the end product.
Eric Blanc, Board Director, pinned Young SKAL member Bailey Morris and we thank both of them for their participation and support.
With the help of Capt. Dylan Hubbard, we are working on finalizing the details for re-scheduling the February (weather affected)fishing trip for Sun. 4/30 in order to get it in just before our May meeting which will also be focused on fundraising for possibly up to (4) Young Skalleagues who have shown an interest in attending the Toronto North American SKAL Congress in June. Those details will be out soon separately, so please pencil that day in for a half day trip on Hubbard’s large party fishing boat.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the Florida Aquarium on Mon. 4/10!
Best Skal regards!
