Meeting Feb. 22 and Spring fundraiser DATE CHANGE to April 8

We've changed the date of our Save Guana Gala fundraising event, so scratch out March 25 and replace it with April 8. It'll still take place at a beautiful home on Guana Lake (above) overlooking the Outpost property - the land we're working to save from development. 

Second item, our meeting this month is Wednesday, February 22, 7 PM, to discuss developments and updates. It will take place at the YMCA in Palm Valley at 170 Landrum Lane. Hope you can attend. (Note that it's a different location than the previous meeting.) Bumper stickers will be free to those who attend the meeting. And we hope to have yard signs available for purchase.

Third item: We're now on Facebook!  (< Click that link.) Many of you are missing our emails due to spam filters, so we're asking you to "like" and most important "follow" our new Facebook page so that you'll receive all updates and notices.  (If you're not on Facebook, this is a great reason to sign up. It's easy!) Also, PLEASE invite your Facebook friends who live locally to like and follow us on Facebook. When you select "following," a pull-down menu will appear. Please check these items so you see our updates: 
Fourth item, we're hiring a land use consultant who will be a critical member of our team to fight development at the Outpost. So we continue to need donations to fund our fight. Please donate.

Fifth item, if you've seen the cover story of this month's Jacksonville magazine, you'll love the spectacular nature photography and the excellent coverage of the work of North Florida Land Trust. Unfortunately, on the topic of the Outpost, many misleading comments by Gate Petroleum's legal team were published without Save Guana Now having an opportunity for input. We're hopeful that our point of view will be represented in a future issue. 

A few reminders...

Volunteers are still needed to help with our Save Guana Gala planned for April 8, particularly the silent auction.  Not a huge investment of time, and it won't take away from your enjoyment of the evening. Reply to this email if you can help.

If you haven't already done so....

We're anticipating a hearing at any time, and we need to fight hard to keep Guana as pristine as it is now - with no habitat destruction or contamination of the lake from 77 proposed homes at the Outpost.  Please spread the word to those who cherish the natural beauty of Guana and the wildlife it protects.
