Presidents message October 2019

Happy Fall to everyone! It is a great time of the year to be on the beach. Many of the tourists are gone, the weather is starting to cool and the beach is as beautiful as ever. I hope everyone had a great summer and is making plans for a great fall and holiday season.


Our October meeting saw a turnout of 41 people. Not bad for this time of year with so much going on in the way of special events and fall festivities.. Thanks to all of you that did attend our meeting.


Please be sure to read Gary Buroker’s Legislative Update published in this publication for the most up to date status of several important issues impacting Navarre Beach. One of the important issues pertains to a parcel of land in Marine Park that is being donated and will be set aside as recreation/conservation land in perpetuity.


In terms of Beach Beautification issues there is not much to update at this time, However I am pleased to announce that Lisa Cichy, a year round resident of Navarre Beach, has agreed to Chair the Christmas Decoration Committee to ensure the decorating of the Navarre Beach Entrance Sign on 98 and Navarre Causeway for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Please join me in thanking Lisa for agreeing to do this. I know Lisa has identified a few helpers but if you are interested in helping please let me know and I will put you in touch with Lisa. I believe the committee is planning on decorating the sign area around Thanksgiving.


During our meeting Scott Braun, Spokesman for the Board of Directors Nominating Committee, brought forth the following slate of Officers for your 2020 Board of Directors:

President - Gary Buroker

Jim Taylor – Vice President

Kathy Boulton – Treasurer

Lisa Cichy – Secretary

This slate of officers will be voted on during our November Meeting and if elected will begin their term on Jan. 1, 2020. We do have to conduct a December meeting.

Please join me in thanking Scott, Courtland Gray and Georgie Weston for their work on the Nominating Committee


A special thanks goes out to Major Doug Bringmans, Special Operations for The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office for taking time to address our October meeting.  Major Bringmans filled in for Sheriff Bob Johnson who originally agreed to speak but had a last minute conflict and was unable to make it.  The Major gave us an excellent overview of the sheriff’s department’s organizational chart and took the time to answer many questions by our members. Please be sure to check out the minutes of the meeting for all of the important items discussed.


As I have reported in the past we are still looking for someone to be our Community Liaison with various organizations in Navarre including the Chambers of Commerce. If you are interested in learning more please let me know. Thanks


Please be sure to mark your calendars for our Saturday, November 16 meeting as our very own District 4 Commissioner Dave Piech will be addressing our group and available to answer all of your questions.  Let’s have a great turn out for the Commissioner.


Thank you.

Peter Birckhead
