Florida Park Service Family Fun Day– The Annual Florida Park Service Reunion and Family Fun Day is held the first weekend of November at Wekiwa Springs State Park. The event is a joint effort between the FPS Alumni Association and the Florida Park Service to provide a fun, relaxing and affordable weekend for all of our park service family; alums. employees, retirees, volunteers and their families. The next Family Fun Day is November 3-6, 2017.
Annual Gathering – Join us for our next Annual Gathering April 6-7, 2018 at Anastasia State Park to explore the park, spin some yarns, raise some money for the James Cook Relief Fund through the Arnold Kuenzler and Family Annual Auction, cover some necessary business and have a great time. You don’t have to be a member to attend but once you experience all the fun and fellowship you will want to join.
Don’t forget to bring new, handmade or collectible items to contribute to the auction. This is our biggest fundraiser for the James Cook Relief Fund, which directly benefits members and current FPS employees. Since the fund’s beginning in 1993, we have awarded more than $84,000; help us continue this rich tradition of generous support.
James Cook Fund – In 1993 the James Cook Memorial Humanitarian Relief Fund was established to provide financial support to FPS employees & Association members in need. This fund is a reflection of the Association’s purpose, as well as, the values of the individual it honors. Since its inception over $100,000 has been distributed to individuals in need of financial assistance. Fundraisers such as raffles and auctions as well as donations have continued to provide funds to assist individuals and their families.
