Come join us for the fun & fellowship during our Annual Gathering. The Florida Park Service Alumni Association will gather at Anastasia State Park to explore the park, spin some yarns, raise some money for the organization through the Arnold Kuenzler and Family Annual Auction, cover some necessary business and have a good time. You don’t have to be a member to attend but once you see what good deeds the organization performs you will want to join.
Don’t forget to bring your items and your money for the auction. Auction items should be new, handmade or collectable items. This is the FPSAA’s biggest fundraiser for the James Cook Memorial Relief Fund, which directly benefits current and retired FPS staff.
