This past week we had a wonderful presentation for the Youth Achievers Program. I'd like to thank 3rd Vice President Patrick Heatherington, and his Chairman Harry Peltz, for putting on such a great event. We had Mayor Alvin Brown, Ken Jefferson from Channel 4, and Ashley Smith-Juarez from the Duval County School Board as our primary guests. We had a special presentation from the Robert E. Lee Honor Guard, who presented the colors and followed that with a demonstration from the Armed Rifle squad. We gave away awards for 2 Teachers of the Year, and certificates were handed out to all of the School Patrol, from Pine Forest Elementary. If you were a sponsor of this event, the club greatly appreciates your contribution.
This week will be our Annual Wine Tasting, and will be done this year by Jeanne Maron of The Gifted Cork in St Augustine. The wine should be wonderful, and the presentation should be a great kickoff to a long weekend. I hope all of you make it to the meeting, but if not, everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
