Our Sixth Year Celebration & Annual Meeting, 
November 21, 2013


We celebrated Sustainable Tallahassee’s six years of success at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, thanks to the generosity of Bo Schmitz, the hotel’s manager.  Great food, great celebration!  Thank you Bo!

We have many to thank for support provided to us during the past year:  

  • New Leaf Market and Whole Foods for their amazing benefits held for ST; 
  • Carr, Riggs, & Ingram for their accounting and bookkeeping support; 
  • Salter & Mitchell for our beautiful office and conference room space;
  • and our 2013 Trash Dash sponsors.  

We are greatly appreciative and humbled by their generosity.
