    Personally, I am very proud to be our organizations new president. I have been in business in Historic Eatonville for more than two decades and I established my business in this community specifically because of its history and cultural heritage.

For our students, pre-K - grade 12, there will be a broad range of offerings, including arts and crafts activities, science demonstrations, book giveaways, special workshops, and, for a 4th year, a ZORA!

Also, we are presenting, in partnership with Rollins College, a first-ever national Communities Conference, in recognition of the 130th anniversary of Historic Eatonvilles Incorporation. Then, theres our inaugural ZORA! Golf Tournament AND, for our organization, yet another 1st -- A Benefit Performance on behalf of the ZORA! Festival. With funding from the Ford Foundation and other New York-based underwriting, Woodie King, Jr.s New Federal Theatre will present Zora Neale Hurston: A Theatrical Biography starring Elizabeth Van Dyke.
