Blue Springs Society, C.A.R. hosted the Central Panhandle State Packet Program Workshop for the Florida Society of the Children of the American Revolution in August. Attendees learned about “Save Our Springs,” the state program for 2010-2011.
Members from Ponce de Leon Society in Tallahassee and Blue Springs Society enjoyed pizza, took part in a number of skits, received candy for explaining the many contests for the year, and watched the DVD, “Water’s Journey” produced by the late Wes Skiles, pioneer Florida springs explorer. Whitney Herold, president of the new Ponce de Leon Society, was voted most enthusiastic and named “Head Life Guard.” C.A.R. members from across the state will learn more about the state project at the F.S.C.A.R. seminar Labor Day weekend at Weeki Wachee Springs. The state society will raise funds to help this newest Florida state park during 2010-2011.
