Florida Springs Restoration Summit – Part I Overwhelmingly excellent

g-villerally-9-16group                           OSFR was well-represented and the table decked out, with President Pam Smith and Vice President Terry Phelan

Overwhelming might be the best term to use to describe the events today Sept.30 at College of Central Florida in Ocala.  Overwhelming in its magnitude, excellence, in its speakers, in its topics, organization and attendees.  Too much information to absorb in too little time. A great experience.

This was phase one and tomorrow Oct. 1 will be phase two.  Too much this and too little time and we will get back with more information when all this is done.
