Our Annual
Membership Meeting
was enjoyed by all who attended!

It was a pleasant, breezy day for our Annual Membership Meeting this past June 1st. Members enjoyed the chance to catch up with each other as well as introduce ourselves to some new faces. Everyone munched on some yummy subs and delicious desserts, followed by updates from Caleb Henderson, Acting President and Dennis Parson, Park Manager. 

Emily Taylor gave an inspiring, educational presentation about the Rise and Sink of the Santa Fe River, located in O’Leno and River Rise respectively. Dr. Taylor is the Executive Director of the Springs Institute, and an alumna of the University of Florida. We very much enjoyed hosting her!
