Florida Governor, First Lady
To Be Honored
The Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida (FWFF) announced that Florida
Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott will be honored at this year’s
annual BlueGreen event, to be held on November 14 in Weston.
“Governor Scott has been instrumental in helping develop a strong connection
between fish and wildlife conservation and traditional outdoor activities like hunting
and especially fishing,” said Rodney Barreto, chairman of FWFF. “And our First
Lady Ann is an outdoors enthusiast in her own right, dedicated to getting our kids
outdoors. Together they provide leadership for effective conservation and youth
engagement in Florida.”
“This year marks our fourth BlueGreen Event thanks to our generous host FWC
Commissioner ‘Alligator’ Ron Bergeron and his fabulous Green Glades Ranch.
Everybody just loves being a cowboy. The great location combined with the support
of the outdoors industry and Florida’s conservation groups has helped us create a
premier fundraising event for kids and conservation in Florida,” Barreto added.
Governor Scott and First Lady Ann Scott will be officially honored during the 4th
annual BlueGreen event. This will be the chance to meet, greet and make strong
connections with others who share the same Florida conservation vision, and have
the means and abilities to make the vision a reality.
“It is a pleasure to work with Rick and Ann Scott. Their love for our state and
business-like approach enable them to have a major impact on the future of Florida.
We are proud to honor them at our BlueGreen event,” Barreto concluded.

Help FISH Keep The
Food Pantry Stocked
As summer continues, the FISH food pantry always sees an increase in
demand. “Many have their hours cut back because the off-season need for
employees decreases. That, combined with the fact that children are out of
school, brings more clients to our Food Pantry to fill the gap,” said Maggi Feiner,
FISH president and CEO. “The demand for the food pantry is much higher in the
summer months, and we find it difficult to keep it well stocked during this time.”
Anyone wishing to help is welcome to bring food items to the walk-in center,
Bailey’s General Store or Bank of the Islands. The food pantry is particularly in
need of canned fruit, mayonnaise, cereal, ketchup, juice, “kid friendly” snacks and
Boost and Ensure drinks. FISH also accepts unopened non-food items such as
soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry deter-
gent, cleaning products, pet food, sun block, etc.
The food pantry can stock frozen and refrigerated items such as meats, fish,
vegetables, fruits, dairy products and juices, and is always in need of dairy prod-
ucts, particularly milk. These items need to be brought to the walk-in center during
their hours of operation: Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The FISH
Walk-in-Center is located at 2430-B Periwinkle Way.
“We are always grateful for the support of our fellow islanders,” said Feiner.
“Their generous donations always make a difference in the lives of people who
benefit from FISH and the Food Pantry.”
