A bump for the two-week reminder.  If you are on the email list, you should receive a reminder in your inbox.

If you have already sent an RSVP, another is not necessary as we only need a count to plan for lunch.  Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones at the meeting.

Please feel free to email, post, or PM any questions or concerns.

It's usually a pretty busy time of year.  Enjoy it the time with your son and at the game - potentially minus Trevor Lawrence. 

I'm planning on going.  This is usually a pretty well-attended meeting location where a lot of interesting stuff shows up in the auction and/or for sale.

Unfortunately, the date for the Holiday 2023 meeting has been moved to Saturday, January 6th, 2024.  The change is due to predicted inclement weather for the coming Saturday:

Unfortunately, we've just received word that this meeting is now cancelled due to predicted rain and high winds in the Sarasota area this Saturday.  The Spring 2024 Meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 6th, 2024 in Lutz at the Langley garden.  If you are on the CFPACS mailing list, you should receive an email from our membership account.  If you do not, please let us know.
