Dear  ,

After much anticipation surrounding Barrister's October line-up.....the excitement of this week is finally here. The list of events is just below. Please join us.   

Don't forget...we are in the final planning stages of our Scholarship Luncheon which will be held on February 17, 2017. Barristers, we have set an ambitious goal of awarding two outstanding law students with $1,000 scholarships.  The question for our annual scholarship luncheon has been dispersed to Florida Law Schools. Can we count on you  to help fund $1000 scholarships for two outstanding law students? Please donate  to help us achieve our goal! 

As always, we look forward to seeing you at the General Body Meeting, October 20th.

Yours in Service,

Brandi Thomas
