2016 Winter Meet

The RLS portion of this year's FLS Winter Meet has come and gone but the memories will last a very long time. We were back to traditional Florida Winter weather this year with highs in the upper 60's most of the weekend and mid-70's on Saturday. The RLS volnteer cooking crew put on a great lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork again this year. A big thank you to all those who volunteered to cook for and serve the hungry crowd a delicious lunch each day. The pot-luck dinner on Friday saw a very full pavilion again this year with a large variety of tasty food and desserts. RLS would like to thank all of our guests and volunteers for making this year's Winter Meet another fun and successful event.
