Wow!  What a great first quarter we’ve had!  What an honor it is to represent this great state!


First & foremost, our prayers for all those affected by Hurricane Ian.   A special thank-you to the Alabama Senate for the hurricane relief supplies.  We were able to deliver those supplies to the residents of Arcadia. 

Thank you to those across this great nation for the calls, prayers & support that you have shown our great state.  Be sure to check our state calendar for upcoming relief/special projects to assist storm victims.


Congratulations to Debra Jean Gronvold and JCI Florida for a fabulous Outstanding Young Floridians Program, held at our 1st Quarter Conference!  We had the opportunity of recognizing 8 outstanding individuals that continually are making a difference in their communities.  What an inspiration they are!


We invite you to our 2nd quarterly conference in Tampa during the weekend of November 18th.  This  conference is the Florida Senate Foundation’s annual “Grinchmas” fundraiser.  There will be a “Grinch” style dinner along with a gift exchange. We welcome our National Admin. VP (and our very own), Hal Williams, along with National President, Susan Hatcher.  Join us to welcome them to the great state of Florida!


December brings us many projects working in our communities.  We look forward to attending Rodeheaver Boy’s Ranch for their Christmas party.  Assisting with a Christmas Festival in the Ft. Myers area for those kids displaced from their homes.  Christmas parades and Christmas parties;  and finally, one of our favorite projects:  Wreaths Across America.  Our fundraising has already started for this wonderful event.  Dates & Information can be found on the website and our Facebook page!


I look forward to seeing you at one of our events.  Help us Build the Next Generation and Share the Senate Experience, Together!
