Thanks to Tom Halbert, Alice Phillips, Gayle Maxey and everyone who helped make our Florida State Conference a great success. And thanks to Pauline Mitchell and Betty Greenspan and all those who worked with our young authors who wrote plays that were performed by FST.  Very nice.

Our new web site is up and running. It is integrated with our Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Please check it out.

We have a great pictorial history of Sarasota Sister Cities on our Pinterest page. Thanks to Gayle Maxey and Tom Halbert for all their time devoted to this effort.

Sister Cities members are doing great work, much of which is not known by members. Please send us an email letting us know about your efforts, and we will post to the blog. And photos are worth a thousand words.

I look forward to working with you over the next year.

Beth Ruyle
President Sarasota Sister Cities
