Today is the first official “meetup” of SFA’s Tallahassee contingent! All regional archivists (and those willing to travel) are invited to attend the event tonight, at the State Archives of Florida, from 6-8 PM.  Parking and admission are free. Complimentary refreshments with a Florida tourism theme will be provided, and a slideshow exhibition, “The Golden Age of Florida’s Miracle Strip,” will be shown. The event is being held in the lobby of the R.A. Gray Building at 500 S. Bronough Street in Tallahassee.  We hope to see you there!
