Happy Thanksgiving

Bill Spann, the City's Director of Military Affairs, will explain his department's role in advocating for military-friendly infrastructure, jobs, and services for veterans in northeast Florida.  
Our guest speaker last week was a familiar face to SBMC. Bill Hay is the host of the WBOB radio show I'm Speaking Plainly. After just coming out of the midterm election season, Bill had some relevant points to make about the political climate in Duval County.
Remember, the club is not meeting this Wednesday. Enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends!
We'll see you again on November 28 for our meeting featuring guest speaker Bill Spann, Director of Military Affairs, City of Jacksonville.
