Jacksonville Florida's Oldest Business and Civic Organization

Founded in 1932



We need your help in completing 2014 SBMC Veteran's Day Parade Float.  We have two weeks to complete the task.  The float is dedicated to our nation's military service members, both active and Veterans alike, and commemorates those who have given the supreme sacrifice for this great nation.  Please come out Tuesday evening, October 28th, at 5:30pm at 3728 Philips Highway, Suite #304.  We will also meet on Tuesday evenings through November 4th, same place and time.  
Note this is a new and more modern location.  Clean and air conditioned.  The site is in the Central Park Office/Industrial complex on the west side of Philips Highway just south of Emerson Street.  Here is a link: 
Food and water will be provided. You are welcome to BYOB.  And bring a lawn chair if you'd like to sit for a spell.  YOUR PARTICIPATION IS VERY IMPORTANT AS THIS REQUIRES VOLUNTEERS EACH WEEK TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT. Additionally, it is fun work.
If you are a veteran and would like your name in The Book Of Valor sign on the float please contact Valerie Segraves at [email protected]    Cost is $10.00 per name.
And every time you volunteer your name goes into a hat.  There will be a drawing at the end for 2 Jaguar tickets and a parking pass!!! 
We are also selling shirts and hats:  1 for $15.00 or 2 for $20.00.  They will be at the meetings and at the Tuesday night float construction. 
Please contact the following members if you have any questions or interest in participating, or just SHOW UP!
