Dear  ,

Thank you for your continued support of the Tallahassee Barristers! We hope you will help welcome new students inducted into the FSU Black Law Students Association this Wednesday, October 12th. Please don't forget to mark your calendar for the Candidates Forum Barristers is hosting with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, to hear from the candidates for State Attorney and Sheriff. We would also like to pass on the invitation to a fundraiser for Tax Collector Doris Maloy this Thursday, October 13th.

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! The Annual Scholarship Luncheon will be held February 2017. 

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

Finally, don't forget to register to vote or update your voter registration. Due to Hurricane Matthew, the Florida deadline has been extended by a federal court to TOMORROW, October 12, 2016, 5PM. Make sure your voice is heard!

Yours in Service,
