Entrepreneurial Trailblazers & How the Changed Florida...
Date May 19, 2021 / Wednesday / 11:30am - 2:00pm
Venue The Alchemist Coffee Shop 17830 W Dixie Hwy North Miami Beach Florida
Florida is in many ways both the oldest and newest of the megastates. Once an insect-ridden swampland, it is now a top destination for tourism, business, agriculture and innovation. The ideas and actions of a colorful cast of characters--from beloved cultural icons to political heroes and even a socialist dictator--transformed the peninsula. A Barbados native rescued Florida's orange industry after the catastrophic 1835 freeze.
Known as the "Grande Dame of the Everglades," Marjory Stoneman Douglas worked tirelessly to save the state's vast, incomparable wetlands from annihilation in the early twentieth century. In the mid-1800s, a Florida doctor developed a precursor to modern air conditioning.
Join former U.S. Senator George LeMieux as he takes us through the history of Florida and how these and other entrepreneurial trailblazers have changed the state forever.
Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Senator LeMieux’s book, “Florida Made: The 25 Most Important Figures Who Shaped the State”.
Followed by lunch!
