May 2018 Hot Topic

Ever wonder what goes on behind the curtain?

Your chance to find out is coming up!

Everything is different about this hot topic so please take note!

The May 2018 Hot Topic will be a field trip to the Leon County Elections Center on May 16. We will have a tour of the facilities, followed by a box lunch, and then a demonstration of the software used to tabulate and audit the results of elections. You will find out what makes Leon County's elections the cleanest, most secure, most error-free in the State of Florida (maybe in the whole country!).

Several options are available for lunch. A  box lunch will be prepared and delivered by Jason's Deli and it will cost $11 per person, members and nonmembers alike. You may go out for lunch -- there are several quick places nearby -- or you may bring your own lunch but refrigeration is not available. BUT, even if you bring your own lunch, you will still need to make a reservation so that we can make sure we  have enough chairs and tables for everyone.

Details about the Jason's Deli Lunch

The box will contain a sandwich made of an ancient grain bun and either roast turkey, ham, or roast beef, lettuce, tomato, and cheese; chips; pickle; a cookie; and a napkin. Your beverage choice will be sweet tea, unsweetened tea, and lemonade. When you make your reservation please state whether you want the Jason's Deli sandwich and what kind of meat. A vegetarian box with more options is also available. To discuss the vegetarian box, please call Linda Davis, at 850-559-0935.
