We had a good looking booth at Fun Fest this weekend.  We provided the public a lot of good information about the efforts to place snorkeling and diving reefs at Navarre Beach on the Gulf and Sound Sides.  The Navarre High School Marine Science Department hosted a touch tank in our booth and the kids loved it.  We raised a little money from donations too.  Here’s some pics from the event.

Thanks to all those that helped man the booth, set up and break down.  Thank you to the Navarre High Science Students for the touch tank – you guys were great.

The Funfest 5K support team is seeking volunteers.  This event raises funds for the Chamber (501 c 3) Foundation.  This is the same foundation that we  (the Maine Sanctuary) are associated with.

Volunteers can sign-up at the Navarre Area Chamber (Visitor Center – Hwy 98 and Navarre Beach Bridge) or contact Mike Sandler at mjsandler@bellsouth.net

Volunteers are needed to do the following:

Build race packets week prior to Funfest

Help set up course or registration on morning of race

Help during the race on the course or finish line

Help with the after race party

You are encouraged to volunteer – it will provide some good practice for the 5K that we may be doing in the fall.
