2014 FSDAA Weekend Update

FSDAA updated

Deaf alumni will host an FSDAA luncheon and general meeting on Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 11:30 am until 2:30 pm at A1A Ale Works restaurant in St. Augustine. The luncheon is open to alumni, family members, friends, and supporters – the $35 per person fee includes $10 to help support May 2015 scholarships for graduating Deaf FSDB seniors. Payment for the luncheon must be received by FSDAA on or before Monday, December 1, 2014 (new deadline).
Alumni weekend plans are designed to take advantage of the famed Nights of Lights in the nation’s oldest city. The FSDB Museum will also be open to visitors from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, December 5-6, 2014.
The Old City holiday parade starts at 10:00 am on Saturday morning, so parking in downtown St. Augustine will be tight – people interested in going to the FSDAA luncheon are advised to arrive early.
Alumni, family members, friends and supporters are encouraged to meet and mingle on Saturday evening at designated restaurants in the downtown area. (Written by Nancy Bloch.)
