We are pleased to announce that the Annual Barbecue for Scholarships hosted by the Florida Section of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (FLSME), a member society of AIME, will be held Saturday, April 1st, 2017 at Lake Mirror Auditorium in Lakeland. The social hour will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the dinner at 7:00 p.m. Mining industry representatives/employees, industry support representatives/employees, members of the local community, and their families are invited to attend this annual event.
The Annual Barbecue is a major fund raising activity for our Student Relations Program. We are asking for your continued support of our student program. During 2015, the Florida Section of SME provided ten $1,000 Academic Scholarships to deserving high school seniors who plan to study technical related curriculums at Florida’s Universities. The Florida Section also funds a variety of activities of the University of Florida SME Student Chapter, such as providing transportation for student members to attend and participate in local and national events.
The Florida Section of SME has enjoyed community and industry support of this once-a-year fund raising activity for many years, and the members of our Section are deeply grateful to all of the contributors who have made the Annual Barbecue so successful year after year.
By means of this announcement, we ask for your donation of $250 to the Annual Barbecue and the Student Relations Program. Please make checks payable to Florida Section SME. Each contributor will receive two tickets to the barbecue and will be recognized as a contributor. Additional tickets may be purchased at a cost of $25 each by contacting one of the ticket sellers below. Ticket includes appetizers, BBQ dinner, and beverages (open bar).
