For those of you who may not have heard, the City of St Augustine is sponsoring a historical marker program. The markers are placed at various locations around the city and inform the visitors to St Augustine of the events, persons and buildings that are a part of the city’s diverse history.

Los Floridanos Society is in the final development stages of a marker to commemorate our “Los Floridanos” ancestors. At the September membership breakfast, the marker layout by member Jeremy Cain was unveiled. A delegation has presented the layout to the city and found the cost of the marker will be $1,300. We are seeking donations to help defray the cost of the marker. To date we have collected $800 toward the cost of the marker. Thank you to the 4 members who have donated so far.

For members wishing to make a donation, kindly mail a check to the above address made out to Los Floridanos Society. Indicate on the check it is for the marker project. Thank you for your support.
