Central Florida "Meeting of the Deans"

On Tuesday, May 14, leadership from chapters in Central Florida gathered at Hyde Park United Methodist Church. The event was hosted Penny Walsh (Tampa) and Michael Hunter (Florida District Convener). Also in attendance were Tom Huffman (Clearwater), Glenn Osborne (Central Florida), Charles and Annette Sims (St. Petersburg), Michelle Klima and Shawn Thomas (Gainesville), and your regional councillor, Laura Ellis. Always wonderful to brainstorm about the AGO with colleagues!

Your Region IV Councillor had the honor of installing the new officers and executive board of the Clearwater chapter this evening. Following a wonderful meal, the chapter members had a chance to visit the recently renovated sanctuary of St. Jerome's Catholic Church, Largo, Florida. A thank you is extended to host Thomas Kurt, Director of Music at St. Jerome's Church. Thanks also to Kevin Johnson, outgoing Clearwater Dean, for inviting me down for the event!
