Dear FMCA Members,
It is an honored tradition each year, during the opening of our Annual Meeting for the Florida Mosquito Control Association, to recognize and honor the memory of Mosquito Control people who have passed away.
We would like to request your assistance to identify any of those in your Mosquito Control organization that have passed away to be included in the memorial. If you would kindly send us their names, the position they held, and when they passed away this year, it would be our privilege to recognize and honor them with a moment of silence. Additionally, if you have a picture of the employee, we would like to include it in our PowerPoint pictorial.
We thank you for your assistance in responding by October 26th. We also appreciate your help in the opportunity in remembering our colleagues.
President Lawrence J. Hribar
