Issue 100 November 15

Last week we learned a lot about Jacksonville’s first 199 years and plans for commemorating its 200th year in 2022. This week will be a busy meeting, we will have our annual wine tasting, we will celebrate our volunteer of the quarter for the third quarter of 2021, and we will hear the nominating committee’s slate of officers and accept nominations from the floor ahead of our annual meeting December 1, 2021. I hope to see many of our members at Doubletree downtown for this fun, and important meeting.

Additionally, the board has decided to move locations for our lunch meetings next year. We will be moving to Fogo de Ciao located at the St. John’s Town Center beginning January 19, 2022. This location has a great A/V setup and private room for us. Just as importantly, it will allow us to keep our lunch prices similar to this year. We can expect the “salad bar” which is really much more than a salad bar every week along with a chicken entrée the first week of the month and a steak entrée the third. If you have had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant you know the food quality is excellent and I hope the move further into the Southside area will allow more members to attend our meetings
