I hope you all are ready for the coming autumn season and
the multitude of things that happen here in Greater Gainesville.

On Sunday, yes, SUNDAY, September 21st, GCA has rented the
very nicely appointed Poe Springs Lodge from 11:00am to 4:00pm
in High Springs for a Potluck Picnic. It has A/C for those
who may ask and a new grill, and an outside covered picnic
area with many tables where we invite you all to bring a dish
to share. The Springs are 72° and a short walk away. Please
mark the date and please try to attend. It will be a great
day! (Rain or Shine, we've got you covered.) Admission to
the park is FREE; bring a chair (if you like), and of course
your swimsuit, towel and/or blanket. If you plan on staying
dry, just show up and enjoy food and friendship. Come celebrate
Autumnal Equinox Eve!
Coming in October, PRIDE WEEK 2014 featuring:
Community Awards Banquet, mid-week activities, PRIDE Downtown
Parade and Bo Diddley Plaza, and this year a closing tribute

GCA will once again enjoy our annual Oktoberfest event courtesy
of Eddie and Munroe, on Saturday evening October 25th, from
6:00pm to 9:00pm. It's a busy time, so mark your calendars
