LARGE SCALE SERVICE PROJECT

The format for Sunday breakfast is has been reworked to allow us to leave a positive imprint. The super popular Florida District Large Scale Service Project Sunday is back for its fifth year. On Sunday morning, August 7 we will, once again, be packaging meals, concluding the convention on an energetic high note in partnership with Meals of Hope.

The Mission of Meals of Hope is “Communities coming together to end hunger!” Meals of Hope began as a food packing organization, and it is the only food packing organization with a priority on keeping the food right here in our own communities!

ADDITIONAL HOTEL INFORMATION

When you are not in workshops or busy doing convention-related activities, this beautiful beach resort has plenty for you to do and plenty more to keep the family busy.

The negotiated group rate of

$129 per night (plus tax)

is based on single/double occupancy and will be available until the cut-off date of July 10 or until the block is sold out, whichever comes first. An additional charge of $20 will apply for each additional adult. Children under the age of 18 stays free in the same room with their parents. Maximum occupancy is four persons per room, regardless of age.

The last time our convention was at the Naples Grande we sold out not just our room block, but we filled the entire hotel! This year, our contracted room block is all we have available and we expect that we will fill that room block again. That means that if you want to be in the heart of the action, you will need to make your reservation early!
