Live Oak — 
Dear editor,


The Boys & Girls Club of North Central Florida takes the quality of the programs that are offered very seriously. Therefore, to ensure that programs and services offered through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant are of the very best quality, the BGCNCFL has contracted with an independent external evaluator to critique our overall program.
The first of the formative evaluations have been completed and the results are available for public viewing during the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the administrative offices of the Boys & Girls Club of North Central Florida, located at 617 Ontario Ave., Live Oak, Florida 32064.


Sincerely,


Teresa N Compton
Boys & Girls Club of North Central Florida

Dear editor,

 

“Spring begins.” My calendar has informed me of the official beginning of this refreshing season, although I’ve felt it outside for a few weeks now. As a Floridian, I know spring will be short but it will also be time to break out of your everyday routine, release some stress, get out of the office and experience nature in Florida’s state parks.

 

Take the time this season to experience nature with all five of your senses - seeing Florida’s vistas, smelling newly bloomed flowers, feeling the sand between your toes, hearing the sounds of children playing and tasting the treats of your picnic basket in a state park. Spring is an optimum season to engross yourself in the natural and cultural resources of Florida’s state parks. There are so many opportunities for new experiences and the special places to continue your old family traditions.

 

Sometimes it is a hike in the forest, a walk on the beach, building sand castles with your kids, watching a sunrise or a sunset, grilling lunch under a big oak tree, looking for a bird species to add to your life list or paddling your canoe on a long stretch of river. It’s about immersion, surrounding yourself with nature and coming away with a renewed appreciation for Florida’s splendor. Sometimes you need a slow, relaxing experience, and sometime you might prefer a fast, exhilarating experience.

 

I encourage you to spend time in Florida’s award-winning state parks this season. Savor the atmosphere of spring and enjoy the Sunshine State in …the Real FloridaSM.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Donald V. Forgione

Director

Florida Park Service
