I have a remarkable number of good sources of information regarding SW Florida's charitable organizations and those who work so hard to keep them moving forward. Much news of interest to those involved in this informal community comes my way on a semi-regular basis, and it pains me to not be able to find the time to post it here.
I am re-commiting myself to making this blog a top level priority once again!
Here are a few of the items that have come across my desk recently ...
Happy 10th anniversary to The Calendar Girls Florida Dance Team!
