Our speaker last week was Hon. Jerry Holland, Supervisor of Elections for Duval County. I have to say, it's a good thing he is a hilarious story-teller, because he had to follow our Spotlight Speaker Angie Tekin and boy is that hard to do! Not only did Jerry share with us what's been going on with the SOE office for the past year, we also got to learn about his big screen acting gig alongside his best buddy Kevin Spacey. It was a fun and informative meeting, and I know I personally had the most laughs I have had in a long time.
If you missed the Meet-A-Member at Kimberly Clarke Salon San Marco Thursday night, you really did miss out on a great red carpet style event. Delicious food, live entertainment, and productive networking made for a fantastic evening. Our sincere appreciation goes out to the always lovely Kim and her Crew for their hospitality to our membership.
Please join me this week as we have our final speaker in our 3-part series on the Affordable Care Act, Moody Chisholm, President and CEO of St Vincents Healthcare. I hope you have enjoyed the series so far, and have appreciated our commitment to hearing from both opponents and proponents of the act. My personal thanks to program chair Steve Johnston for the job he is doing to keep our weekly meetings informative and relevant.
We are gearing up for our 2nd Proofing Party!
Please join the Membership Directory Committee on Tuesday, March 11th, at 5pm at the La Nopalera's Restaurant in San Marco (1631 Hendricks Avenue) for our second of three Proofing Parties performing edits on the 2014 Membership Directory. Food and beverages will be provided. To keep our meetings short, we need at least a dozen volunteers! So please help!
Email Rod Borom at [email protected] if you could provide a couple hours of help that evening. Remember to bring a laptop with you, if you have one. Thank you!
The Youth Achiever Program helps the boys and girls who serve as Southside Elementary school safety patrols, specifically those of Beaclerc with the cost of the trip to Washington DC. Then later upon applying to college, these same students are eligible to apply for our annual YAP college scholarships to the schools of their choice (usually $1,000-$1,500 depending on demand). This program is funded in part by our semi-annual Youth Achiever Program cook-outs. The date for the Spring YAP is March 26th for the luncheon and March 27th for the BBQ at Beauclerc Elementary.
This is your opportunity to make an investment in this worthy program. As SBMC members you can make a difference by getting involved. There are 3 ways to get involved you can help on the YAP committee, volunteer the day of the cookout or Invest by
being a Sponsor in this program. Investment Sponsorships for just the spring is $125 or you can lock in a Sponsorship for both
spring and fall for just $200. If you lock in a Sponsorship for both spring and fall you will be entered into two drawings: one for a hole sponsorship for the YAP Golf Tournament and one for a station sponsorship for the NJROTC Clay Shoot.
PLEASE SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER ON MARCH 27TH AT BEAUCLERC ELEMENTARY. WE HAVE 2 SHIFTS: 12:00-4:00 AND 3:00-6:00. WE WILL BE SETTING UP AND SERVING THE CHICKEN DINNERS. YOU CAN SIGN UP BY SENDING ME AN EMAIL OR PUTTING YOUR NAME IN THE YAP BOOK THAT WILL BE AT THE MEETINGS.
