What have you learned: There are great things being done behind the scenes all over Jacksonville all the time, without much publicity. The 200 Club is one such organization that steps up immediately to help the families and loved ones of our first responders who perish in the line of duty. The organization asks for no accolades, but quietly serves our community in times of great tragedy and need.
Last book you read: Other than volumes of the Southern Reporter, “The Rising,” an account of the 1916 Easter Rebellion in Ireland. History is so much more interesting than fiction.
