Picnic and Theodore Gibson Memorial Fund


The picnic was a huge success. Thank you so much to the people who made it out to have a nice afternoon in the Community Green Space. We had over 75 people come through at various points; some stayed the entire time and others came in just to say hi and grab lunch. A special thank you to the amazing individuals who put the entire thing together: Hope Mohr, my Event Coordinator and go-to gal did an amazing job of organizing everything and reminding people about the event. Michelle Wedderburn and the ladies of Simply Jerk who catered the event. Morgan, Vanna, Bob, Deter, Melanie, and Andrew who all helped out immensely. I couldn’t have done it without you all and I am extremely thankful for your help. We had quite a few special guests and many news outlets were there to cover it. State Representative Carlos Lopez-Cantera and his legislative assistant Joeseph Ruiz, who I’ve been working with on the FP&L issue both made it out as well. Tom Falco, Editor of the Coconut Grove Grapevine, was there as well and wrote this post (and took a great picture of Councilwoman Michelle Niemeyer, State Rep. Lopez-Cantera and I).

Tonight, Morgan and I went to the Theodore Gibson Memorial Fund’s annual fund-raising dinner at Jungle Island. It was nice to see a lot of familiar faces from the West Grove, and we made some new friends as well. Coincidentally, I was sitting next to Vanessa (Thelma Gibson’s niece) and Stephen Murray (her husband), so now I have some ‘family’ here as well. A thank you also goes out to Melissa Meyer, my neighbor and member of the fund’s Board of Directors, who invited us.

We are only about two weeks away from the election. Let’s keep the momentum going.
