I need a ride

Post  shannon1 on 1/30/2012, 3:00 am

I would love to see Mel but I live in St.Augustine Fl and my poor old 84' Relient won't make it. If anyone is planning on going from the Jax, St. Augustine area I would love to hitch a ride. I'll fill your gas tank and buy you lunch:D . please PM me if that sounds like a plan.

Ok hold the phone I see he will also be at Lady Lake Public Library, in Lady Lake on the 8th at 6:30pm.

Just a thought Shannon, but for a few more bucks, couldn't you rent a little import? I don't know the distance, but it seems like it may be worth it. Maybe then you could even have someone ride with you, and they could help with gas. Wink

Believe it or not, I actually hesitated with my suggestion, anticipating that might be the case. I'd like to meet Mel and hear his presentation. I can certainly feel your frustration.

Management Please Note.....

Post  tomperrin on 1/31/2012, 9:22 am

It sure would be nice for all of us if Mel's speaking schedule was placed on the Forum well in advance.

Perhaps as a sticky somewhere.

We typically make an announcement when the foundation requests us to do so. You can also go to the "website" link in the green menu bar to go directly to the foundation to check for dates.
Mel's website doesn't typically announce his speakings either. Smile

Probably too late..

Post  BillOcala on 2/15/2012, 5:50 pm

I just got started on this forum but I could have signed him up for a speaking date in Ocala. Our facility is always looking for speakers for one thing or another...
