The Marine Sanctuary Committee booth at this year’s Fun Fest was the place to be. Nancy Sandler (Community Awareness Coordinator) and her band of merry volunteers made a big splash telling visitors about the recent program status and providing information on what’s to come. T-shirts and bumper stickers were snapped up in record numbers and over $200 was raised to aid program improvements and reef maintenance once the reefs are installed. Additionally – twenty new volunteers signed up to help Make Navarre Snorkelicious!

On May 7th Nancy and company were at it again – this time at the Sunset Stampede, handing out Run for the Reef registration forms and providing information on the reef program to the over large crowd at the annual evening 5K headquartered at Juana’s.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped man the booth at these events!
