UTC Malls Very First Week End, Attendance is NOT Mandatory.

With our weather nothing short of SPLENDID this coming week-end,  you just may want to take a pass on our new upscale mega-mall's debut.  Tune in to The Friday Morning Breakfast Bar from 7 til 9 and hear the Big List near the bottom of each hour.  At least a dozen different options that have nothing to do with the UTC Mall will be presented for your consideration.   Great weekends start on Friday mornings with The WSLR Breakfast Bar. 96.5 FM, stream at or use one of the free listening apps available for Apple/Android devices.

Thanks to the Country Dance and Song Society

We will also be getting an update from Rhana Bazzini on her walk to Tallahassee to raise awareness of the broken campaign finance system that is hurting us all.
