Announcement

Aloha,

My name is Tim Orrange and I am honored to announce that I am the next Chairman of the Central Florida Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. I was previously vice-chair of the Miami Chapter and look forward to bringing my knowledge and learning to Central Florida and building on all the chapter and all our past leaders have accomplished.

The Surfrider Foundation works hard to protect our oceans, beaches and waterways through Conservation, Activism, Research, and Education. Please come out to our next genal member meeting Friday September 14th, 7:30pm at Spacebar to learn what we have done in the past year and what is planned for the remainder of 2012 and 2013. With your help and support, we can grow this chapter and make a difference when it comes to our ultimate playground – mother ocean.

Look for emails with more specifics on upcoming events and meetings.

Remember that, although we live inland, all our decisions impact the ocean.

I look forward to meeting you all personally.

Tim Orrange

Chairman

Hands Across the Sand/Land is a movement made of people of all walks of life and crosses political affiliations and the borders of the world. This is movement is not about politics – it is about the protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife and fisheries. The accidents that continue to happen in offshore oil drilling are a threat to all of the above. Expanding offshore oil drilling is not the answer, embracing Clean Energy is.
