Our April 26th Women, Wine & Wisdom meeting was held at the Fresh Mex Restaurant and was, again, exceptional!  President Esther Byrd introduced our speakers:  FL State Senator Aaron Bean, Representative Cord Byrd, Representative Jason Fischer and Representative Clay Yarborough.  They held a panel discussion updating us on recent legislation passed - and what is still in process - in the two Florida legislative houses.  There was a question and answer period following their discussion and it could have gone on for hours, there was so much interest!  Duval County School Board member Charlotte Joyce spoke about what is being taught in our local public schools and the importance of school board elections on the ballot, encouraging members to stay informed and become involved with what is going on in our schools.  Several candidates for upcoming elections introduced themselves and shared their vision for office and Ed Dean of radio station WBOB spoke about upcoming political events being held to get to know local candidates who are running for office.  Ellen Sullivan reported on our first-ever RWCDF scholarship winners, three truly outstanding young women who are graduating high school this year.  We expect to hear great things from them in the future!  The hat of the evening was "DeSantisland - Land of Liberty" worn by Catherine del Re.  Next W3 will be held on May 24th.  Don't miss it!!!
