The tenth anniversary of the chapter had a great kick-off with a member appreciation party held at the Wine Bar in Jax Beach on February eighteenth. It was great to see old friends and make new ones at the event.
During the event we rolled out our anniversary t-shirts which became an instant hit thanks to a great design by our own EC Secretary Erin Handy’s son, Andrew Foster, and art-work by Damon Williams. The t-shirts were made possible due to the generosity of our sponsor Brian Weissmann of Trident Surf. There are still shirts available in both men’s and women’s styles for $15.00 each. They will be available for sale at future meetings and at our upcoming Black Tie and Baggies gala to be held in April.
The chapter continues to look for ways to upgrade our web-site to make it more user friendly. To that end, starting in March the newsletter will be presented in a video format. Next month we will also be adding a blog for our Ocean Friendly Garden campaign that will feature OFG events as well as monthly Ocean Friendly Gardening tips.
Lastly, we are fortunate that VOID magazine will be featuring an article about our ten year anniversary in their April issue so check it out.
Thanks again for your continued support of the chapter and I will look forward to seeing you at future meetings and events.
