If you are a CFPACS Member or former member, you should have received an email regarding the itinerary for the fall meeting.  If you are not a past or present member, but are interested in joining and/or attending, please PM me at your earliest convenience.  CFPACS was able to get a block of rooms reserved at a special group rate in the Miami area for our attendees.  The details of how to lock in the group rate are included in the email sent earlier, but you will need to reserve a room by Monday, August 31st, 2020.  The tentative itinerary is shared below:

Some members have expressed an interest in attending this wonderful 83-acre garden.  To our knowledge, they are not accepting reciprocal passes at the moment and are offering two 3-hour tours per day (10am and 1pm).  This can be done on your own if you wish as it is not formally scheduled.

If anyone still needs to reserve a room, I was advised that the date above (August 31st) has been extended to include this week.

If you've sent an RSVP, an email will be sent later this week with further details for this meeting.  If you plan on attending and haven't sent an RSVP, please do as it will assist greatly with planning for the visit to Montgomery and the socially distanced private garden cookout.  CDC guidelines, including masks and social distancing, will be observed at these events.
