PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Wednesday we welcomed Adam Levine, Director and CEO of The Cummer Museum. Mr. Levine gave an interesting lecture on the history of museums and why they are important to our community and economy.  He also discussed some of the history of the Cummer Museum, the gardens, and several of the upcoming exhibits and great programs they offer.  As a member of the Cummer, I can attest to its value and I invite everyone to take advantage of the many opportunities they offer.
